Forgotten Weapons takes a look at one very interesting assassination weapon.
The Welrod MKIIA pistol is meant to be an ultra-quiet suppressed weapon.
Back in 1943 quite an interesting suppressed pistol was born, the Welrod Pistol.
Chambered in .32 ACP this magazine fed heavily suppressed pistol was made for assassination. This strange bolt action pistol is nothing like you have ever witnessed before. With reports of no audible sound when fired 15 feet away any sentry targeted by this weapon would never know what hit him. The Welrod MKIIA is said to most likely be in service even today for special occasions.
Great find Ian while visiting the Institute of Military Technology. We enjoy your great finds and your quest to keep the knowledge of historical weapons alive and well.
