Walther P5 CompactThis is the shorter and lighter version of the fullsize P5. Approx 3,000 examples of this pistol were adopted in the 1980s by the British Army as Pistol L102A1 (NATO Stock Number 1005-99-978-4952) for issue to the Royal Irish Regiment (Home Service) as a Personal Protection Weapon. A small number may have been issued to 14 Intelligence Company, an all-arms unit active in Northern Ireland. Some surplus examples of this pistol have surfaced in the US collectors' market and are sometimes mistakenly described as "SAS Pistols."
