FEG MODEL 48 WALAM
Type: blowback operated automatic pistol Chambering: 9mm Short (.380 acp) and 7.65mm (.32 acp) Length overall: 6.89in (175mm) Barrel: 3.94in (100mm) rifled Weight unladen: 25.6oz (725g) Magazine: 8-round detachable box Muzzle velocity: 920 fps Also this pistol was intended for Egypt. The contract was abruptly terminated and most guns were sold commercially, some used by the police. The Walam is a modified copy of the German 7.65mm Walther PP chambering 9mm short ammo. The loaded-chamber indicator is mounted on the top left of the Walam slide rather than at the rear of the slide as does the Walther. These pistols are .75in (19mm) longer than the PP. Loading, firing, and field stripping of these pistols is the same as that of German Walther PP and PPK. The Walam pistol is also occasionally called the Model 48, which can lead to confusion with the Hungarian army Model 48 (the copy of the Soviet Tokarev TT-33).
