Glock 1X/2X/3X +0 x15 5m 0 17 $450/15 1kg 2 9x19mm
  The Glock 1X, 2X, and 3X families of polymer-framed firearms are the 2nd generation descendants of the original Glock 17. At the time of its introduction, the Glock 17 became very popular with civilians, and a wide number of security and police agencies worldwide. The double-action only Glock design had several significant improvements over its contemporaries: the polymer frame gave it an exceptionally light weight, and the original G17 possessed a previously unheard-of 17-round capacity (hence the name) in 9mm Parabellum. The Glock has a number of safety features, the majority of which work to prevent the weapon from firing under any condition except when the trigger is pulled. Other than the trigger-actuated safeties, the Glock design has no other mechanisms that the user must remember to disengage before firing. The DAO action also allows the weapon to be safely carried with a round in chamber, as the striker is blocked by the mechanical safeties until the trigger is pulled. The 1X (full-sized) and 2X (compact & mini) series cover models chambered in no less than six different cartridges: .380 (17rd), 9mm Para (listed), .40S&W (16rd), 10mm (16rd), .45 ACP (13rd), and 11mm Auto (13rd, $600).

Glock also produces compact models chambered for 10mm (Glock 28, 8rd capacity), and .45 caliber (Glock 30, 6rds).


Grader Arms M2043 +0 x12/x18 5m 0 12 $450/15 1kg 4* 11.43x23mm

Wolfwood's weapon of choice
The Grader Arms Model 2043 is a new prototype that is slated for mass-release in August 2042. The original M2043 was a custom-model 1911 upgrade that has been redesigned for one-handed operation -- the slide has been mechanically slaved to the forward portion of the trigger guard. The slide can be racked traditionally (2-handed), or operated via the guard mechanism with the trigger finger. This method of single-hand cocking is not new -- the concept originated in 1913-15 by Bergmann, and later adopted by the Lignose in Germany in the 1920s, and in the Chinese Type 77 pistol in the 1960-70s. The M2043 possesses all the standard safety mechanisms and is otherwise operationally identical to the M1911 (or more recent M1991) pistols.
* Current Availability is 4, as all models existing as of May 2041 are prototype or early production models.  After the release date, Availability drops to 2.


Hammerli 610 +0 x18 6m 0 9 $1100/25 1kg 4B 5.7x28mm
The Hammerli 610 was specially designed as a high-accuracy firearm for security and VIP-protection applications. The 610 is mechanically similar to Hammerli's other target pistols, in that it features a partial slide, anatomical grips, heavy cermet barrel, and fully adjustable fore- and rearsights. The 610's most significant difference is that it is chambered for a much more potent cartridge. The excellent penetration and low recoil of the FN SS190 cartridge were paramount in its selection. The 610 uses a single-stack cartridge to reduce the overall thickness, and enhance concealability. The Hammerli is available in both polished chrome as well as a "midnight chrome" stainless finishes as standard, further demonstrating it's use as a "high profile" weapon.

Commonly chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum, the MKS-4 has a 9-round capacity single-stack magazine. Alternate chamberings are also available in .40S&W and 10mm. There is no change in cost, but capacity is reduced to 7 rounds in both cases. The MKS-4 also utilizes a large amount of polymer in its frame construction, keeping the weight down.

KBP Drotik +0 x16 5m 0 24 $600/20 1kg 3+ 5.45x18mm

The Drotik ("Javelin") Automatic Pistol, was developed in the Russian Federation in the late 1990s by the Russian arms firm KBP, but did not see widespread deployment as the officer-issue sidearm until well into the 21st century. The Drotik is similar to the FN Five-seveN in application: they both utilize a centerfire necked cartridge firing a relatively lightweight high-velocity bullet, yielding significant armor penetration capabilities. Deployment is also similar: Drotiks are issued to both special-operations units as well as general personnel as an officer's weapon. CIS/RusFed officers have the selection between the Drotik or the heavier Gyurza pistols. Many consider the Drotik to be the equivalent of a full-sized PSM, though the models differ substantially. Drotiks are relatively easy to find in the CIS and Eastern Europe, but rare elsewhere (Avail 4+). Although the first Drotik models were burst capable (ROF1), this feature was removed from later mass-production/general issue models, though the occasional full-automatic Drotik can be found (+1 Avail).


Lorcin L-9 +0 x15 5m 0 8 ~$125/15 1kg 2 9x19mm

The Lorcin L-9 is another manufacturer of "Streetline Specials," with the L-9 in 9mm Parabellum being the largest caliber produced by Lorcin Manufacturing. As the High-Point pistols, the L-9 is incredibly inexpensive (also under $150), leading to a few lawsuits brought against the company in the late 1990's, as Lorcin handguns had been used in a startling number of crimes in the Los Angeles area (The Ring of Fire case --ed). The L-9 uses a single-stack 9-round magazine, giving the weapon a very slim cross-section, making it very concealable for its size.

The cost of the weapon is randomly determined: Whenever a purchase is desired, roll 1d6+1 and multiply the result by $10. Subtract this value from $150 to determine "street cost".


Mateba Model 207 +0 x15 8m 0 6 $450/15* 2kg 3 9x29mm

This peculiar revolver is chambered for the .38 Special (9x29mm) cartridge, and its six-round cylinder is hinged at the top of the frame, rather than the bottom. The M207's hexagonal barrel is aligned with the bottom-most chamber to be more in-line with the firing arm, and the design is also counterbalanced by a top-mounted weight. It should be noted that the Mateba's greatest feature is its accuracy. unfortunately, it is not as quick or as high-powered as most automatics. Additionally, its design causes problems with reloading (3rds can be loaded per action, unless a speedloader is used), making it less than ideal in situations where a lot of ammo is being expended. Also features ergonomic grips and interchangeable barrels. *Speedloaders are available for $15.


Militech Avenger +0 x15 5m 0 12 $300/15 1kg 2 9x19mm

The Militech Avenger, chambered in the 9x19mm NATO cartridge is a robust and compact autoloader with a reinforced polymer frame and slide. The relatively inexpensive double-action only (DAO) Avenger has seen brisk sales in both the civilian and security sectors.

Mustang Arms K-23 +0 x15 5m 0 16 $250/15 1kg 2 9x19mm

A simple and fairly inexpensive handgun, Mustang Arms' K-23 is a suitable sidearm for many roles. By utilizing a short-travel telescoped bolt with recoil-buffering system similar to that found on the UZI and Steyr TMP, Mustang was able to keep the bolt mechanism fairly compact and keep recoil to manageable levels. Mustang then paired this short action with a long 16cm alloy barrel with muzzle compensation. Constructed of glass-reinforced high-impact polymer, the K-23 is both rugged and reliable, even if a little long for concealment. Mustang has recently began manufacturing the K-23C compact variant that shortens the barrel considerably to only 10cm ($300).
Also available in 10mm (x17, 14rds, $300), and a machine-pistol variant (x15, 16rds, ROF1, $400, Avail 3).

When using shotshells, accuracy is increased to +1, and damage is changed to x8. Slug shotshells keep accuracy at +0, and are x16 damage. Mustang manufactures a custom laser-sighting device, that projects a single point surrounded by a circle, denoting point of aim as well as dispersion zone for buckshot. This weapon's distinctive appearance and laser pattern have made it very popular in the film/video industry.

The Seburo SNAB is the standard-issue sidearm of Poseidon Public Security's Section 9, and is chambered for the FN SS190 (5.7x28mm) round. In many ways very similar to the FN Five-seveN pistol, the SNAB differs mostly in Seburo's characteristic styling. Though typically used with a 14-round magazine, a 20-rd "long" clip is available that extends about 3cm from the base of the grip (model shown is so equipped).

Incredibly rugged and reliable, the Stechkin is also seen rechambered from the typical Makarov High Impulse to 9x19mm for export sales. Availability is 2 in Russia and its (ex-)client states, 3 in Western Europe, but as few are exported to North America, the typical availability is 4, though occasional shipments do arrive. Unlike the original APS, the KPS is semi-automatic only, though a special burst-capable version is have been produced in limited numbers ($450, Avail 3+).

The Wondernines are a class of typical 21st century small arms that are comparatively similar: reliable, "high-capacity" semi-automatic pistols that are common and relatively inexpensive, and produced by any of a number of different manufacturers. In game-effects, they are all identical, but will have varying cost, capacity, and name. The four pistols shown above are but a few examples of Wondernines. Additionally, many of these Wondernines are also available in the .40S&W (10x21mm) cartridge (x16 damage) at a minor loss of capacity (1 less). Ammunition capacity and cost are randomly determined for a given model: roll 1d6, and add the value to 12 for the number of rounds in a magazine. Multiply the number rolled by $10, and add this to $240 to determine the cost of the weapon. Upgrading to .40S&W ("Wonder-Forty") reduces Capacity by 1, but adds $50 to the cost. The GM may further modify this cost based on brand name, quality, and reliability.

The Wondernine Compacts essentially Wondernines that have been modified to a smaller frame for concealability. In game-effects, they are all identical, but will have varying cost, capacity, and name. The four pistols shown above are but a few examples of Wondernines. Additionally, many of these Wondernines are also available in the .40S&W (10x21mm, x16 damage) cartridge at a minor loss of capacity. Ammunition capacity and cost are randomly determined for a given model: roll 1d6, and add the value to 7 for the number of rounds in a magazine. Multiply the number rolled by $10, and add this to $240 to determine the cost of the weapon. Upgrading to .40S&W reduces Capacity by 1, but adds $50 to the cost. The GM may further modify this cost based on brand name, quality, and reliability.


WonderSIGs +0 x17 5m 0 9+d3 See Text 1kg 2 9x25mm

SIG sig pro

Heckler & Koch USP357

Taurus PT-357
The WonderSIG is a fairly new group of weapons that are chambered for the .357 SIG cartridge. Many weapons that are available in the 10mm Auto caliber are also available in .357 SIG. The .357 SIG cartridge is effectively a 10mm Auto case that has been necked down to accept a 9mm bullet. This cartridge is thus capable of an exceptionally high muzzle velocity, and has somewhat better ballistic performance than the 10mm Auto, with substantially reduced weapon wear. Common weapons in .357 SIG are SIG's sig pro, the HK USP357, and the Taurus PT-357. Cost is determined similar to Wondernines, but uses the following formulae instead: Capacity is 9+d3 (e.g. 9+ [1d6 / 2]), Cost is $450+ ($50 * d3 result).
