Hi Gotavapen
This pistol was called Pistol till stridsvagn 81 in Sweden. It was only used by the crews of the Centurion tanks.
Best regards
Horst

Thank you hotto.
As a matter of fact it was called "Signalpistol" here in Sweden without proper designation (i.e. m/54), contra to AN-M8 which followed with the airplane Mustang which got the designation m/45.
(Ref. Armémuseum)
For the rest of the army at that time m/50 from Dianawerke was used.
