Signal pistol model 1955

Post by hotto » Sat 27 Jul 2019, 13:29

Shin Chuo Kogyo KK manufactures a 40 mm caliber pistol for the Japanese Air Force. This weapon is more compact, than the 21,5 mm gun of the land forces. The handle has a curved shape and the butt-plates are made of plastic. There is no catch strap eyelet. On the left side of the pistol are two push buttons, the larger of which is for opening the barrel and the smaller one for safety. The cock must be cocked by hand before the shot, so it is a single action weapon.
