Grand Power K-100

     Notes: Grand Power is a rather new Slovakian firearms company.  One of their products is the K-100 pistol, a pistol which is fairly conventional in appearance but which has a few novel features.  The K-100 began production in 2003.

     The K-100 is recoil-operated, and uses a rotating barrel in its operation recoil operation is somewhat common in rifles, but almost never found in a pistol; the use of a rotating barrel is more common, but the use of a curved track for the barrel is not.  The safety, magazine release, and slide lock lever are all ambidextrous (early versions had a slide lock which made the K-100 uncomfortable to hold and fire, but this has been reshaped in newer models).  Several types of trigger actions are available: double-action, DAO (with no manual safety), and Quick Action (DA with a pre-cocked mainspring). The K-100 uses a polymer frame and grip, with an accessory rail under the 4.2-inch barrel.  Sights may be had fixed or adjustable; in either case, the rear sight is dovetailed into the slide.

     Military and police buyers have some other options.  A threaded barrel is available for use with a proprietary silencer designed specifically for the K-100.  The K-102R has a fire selector allowing for 2-round bursts in addition to semiautomatic fire; the K-105R allows for 5-round bursts.

     STI started marketing this pistol in the US as the GP6-C.  Other than the name, it is identical to the K-100.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This pistol does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

PS-97

     Notes: This Slovakian weapon was designed to be a relatively modern weapon that is inexpensive to produce.  It is made largely of nickel with a blackened finish, with black plastic grips.  It uses a standard Browning action.  Plastic grips are standard, but wooden grips are also available.  It is basically a high-quality, but unremarkable pistol. 

     Twilight 2000 Story: These pistols became more and more common among Czech forces as the war wore on, though wooden grips became more common among later examples.
