I love Czech pistols for some reason.

Looks like a cross between a baby eagle and a super soaker. 1 ugly gun but it's Czech made so it most likely dead reliable.

looks like a ray-gun--i like it, czeck guns r awsome,,my least fav though is the one I own a cz-40p---reliability is spotty...but...when it works..its dead eye accurate. Shoot your eye out at 25 yds accurate..the most accurate bigbore, "40" and up, that i ever shot.

They used an HKVP70Z for that prop.

Die hard Glock fans might wish that they could claim the original polymer frame pistol. Unfortunately they cannot. The VP70 is the original polymer frame handgun, with a design genesis of 1968. Way ahead of its time, the VP70 had a lot going for it, and it was designed hand in hand with a buttstock that converted the pistol into a three round burst submachine gun when the stock was attached.

The VP70 got its name with abbreviations. VP stands for the German "Volkspistole." "70" is the year of introduction. Volkspistole translated means 'people's pistol.' No longer in production, the VP was known as the VP70, the VP70M and the VP70Z. 'Z' stands for 'Zivilversion,' or civilian version. This was not available with the buttstock attachment. The 'M' in VP70M stands for Militär, or Military in German. When in burst mode, the cyclic rate of the VP70 is a blistering 2200 rpm.

The VP70 was produced in small quantity in caliber 9mm x 21, 400 units. Some examples in this caliber have been offered for sale in the United States.

The VP70 itself was designed by the great HK engineer Helmut Weldle and company co-founder Alex Seidel. Production of the VP70 series was halted in August, 1989.
