In this episode Matt takes a look at Heckler & Koch’s briefcase gun or ‘Special Case’.
Developed by H&K in the late 1970s, the ‘Special Case’ was designed as a discreet, clandestine weapon system designed for personal protection details. The ‘Special Case’ offered the firepower of an MP5K in a concealed package which could be rapidly brought into action.
Matt discusses the history of HK’s briefcase gun and takes a look at how the MP5K fit inside and how the trigger mechanism worked to allow the gun to be fired.
