New guns...

From a press release for a new CCW gun...
"There are no plastic or mimed parts on the PKO-45."
Thank heavens. I hate it when my gun starts walking against the wind or gets trapped in an invisible box because of mimed parts.
"It boasts a revolutionary fixed-barrel-under-the-guide-rod configuration, resulting in less recoil felt by the operator."
That's super revolutionary. It's so revolutionary that John Browning's very first commercially successful autopistol used it a hundred and seventeen years ago.

But it looks like the PKO-45 is more of a copy of the Bayard 1908, itself something of a riff on the M1899/1900 Browning.

(H/T to Unc.)
