MKEK manufactured weapons under license as did many middle-eastern industries such as DIO of Iran and POF of Pakistan. The KYRYKKALE is a Turkish copy of the German WALTHER PPK semiautomatic handgun. It is made in 3 versions: a .32-ACP version, a .380-ACP version (both of them feeding from an 8-rounds single-stack column magazine, the first one is made for the civilian market), and a .9x19mm-Parabellum scaled-up version (fed from a 12-rounds double-stack column magazine). The .9x19 version is the standard sidearm for the Turkish army, while the .380-ACP is the General Officers model.
