Welrod is a WWII British bolt-action, magazine fed, silenced pistol, used for removing sentries, and assassinations. It was primarily used by the British SOE, but was also used by the American OSS. After the war the Welrod was used to in places like Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands, Iraq and even (as the rumor goes) in Northern Ireland.
The weapon is little more than a steel tube containing the barrel, silencer, a bolt, and attached to this a very short grip (the rest of the grip is removable and is the magazine). It is accurate up to 30 meters in daylight or 20 meters on a fairly light night, but is most effective when fired in contact with the target.
It was made in two variants Mk I (9mm P) and Mk II (.32 ACP). The Mk I could have the front part of the suppressor removed to make it easier to conceal the gun (at the expense of noise reduction) and a trigger guard. The Mk II’s trigger, best described as a bent nail, is not protected by a trigger-guard, meaning that it cannot simply be tucked into the belt without risking accidental discharge.
