Wz.35 VIS Semiautomatic Pistol (aka the Radom Pistol)

The Model of 1935 semiautomatic pistol by Piotr Wilniewczyc and Jan Skrzypiński is a personal defense handgun, capable of accurate firing to ca. 50 m. It is a short-recoil operated pistol with breech locked by tilting barrel. Manufactured between 1936 and 1939 at the Fabryka Broni in Radom, it was a standard sidearm of the company-grade officers, NCOs and specialist enlisted personnel in the Polish Army. The manufacturer legend o­n the slide, struck beside Polish Eagle, gave this excellent-quality sidearm its sobriquet of „the Radom pistol”, making it a best known FB product ever, even though o­nly under 50 000 „Eagle Radoms” were made prior to the outbreak of WW2. The design was found sound enough by the Germans to carry o­n production throughout the war (with some 350 000 pistols made), deleting the Eagle from the slides, but retaining manufacturer’s and patent legends.
