Semiautomatic pistol with silencer
Reproduction of the German pistol of 1931 with silencer, made of metal and plastic handle, with simulator mechanism of charge and shot, charger and removable silencer. Known by its initials whose name comes from the German "Polizei Pistole Kurz". Used by the army during World War II. It was the weapon used by Adolf Hitler to commit suicide.
It was also the first semi-automatic pistol that could be carried with a bullet in the chamber without the danger of accidental firing by blows or falls. Its discreet and comfortable size, the little recoil of the shot and the security of its mechanism popularized it throughout the 20th century, becoming the favorite weapon of the Western secret services.
It became famous thanks to the fictitious character James Bond 007, who has used it in a good part of his films, in which he couples a silencer to the barrel when a more subtle work is required. It is also the weapon used by Holly Hunter in her role as Detective MJ in Copycat.
