Description

Heckler & Koch P11 for sale

The Heckler & Koch P11 underwater pistol was originally developed during late 1960s by famous German arms-making company Heckler und Koch GmbH. Designed and produced under the cloud of secrecy, it was patented in 1969, but related patents were made public only in 2008. It was adopted by combat swimmers of the Bundeswehr (armed forces of the FRG) in 1976. Several other countries adopted this unusual weapon for its special forces, including US Navy. It remained secret until 1990s, when first photos of this gun began to appear in the press. It is an extremely interesting and unusual weapon. While its major rivals such as Russian SPP-1M pistol or American Mk.1 UDP are optimized to underwater (submerged) operations, the HK P11 pistol can be effectively used both underwater and above the water, “on air”.

Heckler & Koch P11

This highly unusual weapon is probably the only serious rival to the Soviet underwater pistol, which appeared in late 1960s. The P11 and its ammunition is somewhat bulkier than its Soviet counterparts (the SPP-1M), but, on the other hand, the Heckler & Koch P11 has one round more capacity and a larger caliber, probably resulting in better lethality. The P11 pistol is mainly unusual in the fact that it is not self-loading. Instead, it uses a quick-detachable cluster of five barrels, each factory-loaded with a powder charge and long, needle-like, drag-stabilized projectile. The pistol is reloaded by the replacement of an entire barrel cluster. In combat, the empty clusters are discarded, in training these are collected and later sent back to factory for reloading.
