CP-03 class Pistol

cP003 snub pistol
The cP003 is a typical version of a snub gun, a large bore, low velocity pistol firing small shaped charges instead of solid projectiles. These have greatly increased penetrating power with the penalty of reduced magazine capacity and increased cost. They are extremely effective against light body armor, and while most military body armor incorporates ceramic or ablative fibers to slow down the HEAP effect, the transmitted concussion is still enough to cause serious injury.
The cP003 fires a low powered, caseless large caliber round from a 10 or 20 round magazine. The weapon is capable of single-shot, burst fire or full-automatic fire. It comes with a dual mode laser sight for targeting. The weapon is manufactured from a standard composite, but is bulker than most pistols.
