In 1978 the Hungarian Police ordered a small, light aluminum-frame pocket pistol chambering 7.65mm (.32acp). This blowback is an original design, though with small hints of Walther influence. The double-action lock includes a slide-mounted safety catch which can drop the hammer when applied. A stripping catch on the left side of the frame ahead of the trigger allows the slide and barrel to be easily removed. The frame is Titanium-Aluminium alloy, the slide is steel, and the bore is chromium plated.
