IMM HS-2000

Notes: This weapon (sometimes known simply as the "HS") is the standard Croatian sidearm. It borrows in design from the SiG-Sauer P-226, being a simple design that can operate in both single and double-action operation. It features a decocking lever, like many modern pistols. The HS-2000 has ambidextrous controls and can be easily used by both left and right-handed firers. Though the HS-2000 is a single-action weapon, the trigger action lessens the possibility of accidental discharge by having what IMM calls an "Ultra Safety Assurance" mechanism. This includes a modified form of striker firing, a firing pin safety, a cocking indicator, a chamber-loaded indicator, a trigger safety (the trigger must be pulled completely back), and a grip safety. The HS-2000 has no manual safeties whatsoever. The HS-2000 has a modern polymer frame, with a steel slide. Barrel lengths of 3 and 5 inches are available. Both Croatian military and police forces use the HS-2000.

Variants of this pistol are sold in the US by Springfield as the XD series; however, the XD is sufficiently different from the HS-2000 to warrant their own entry under US Pistols.

PHP MV-9

Notes: This Croatian weapon is relatively rare, since production ceased after a short run and did not pick up again until after the breakup of the former Yugoslavia was well underway. The weapon is essentially a version of the Walther P-38; though it looks very different externally, the breech locking, trigger, and decocking system are the same. The only real improvement is the high-capacity magazine and the protection for the barrel. Manufacture ceased after a short run of less than three years.

Twilight 2000 Notes: In the Twilight 2000 Notes, manufacture did not cease after a short run of three years.
