It fires open bolt or "zuschiessend" as we say it in the German language.

A few prototypes were made that were striker-fired from a closed bolt.

It seems that the semi-automatic version M90 was more or less recycled from the large inventory of unused MPK parts sets you've mentioned in #28. It's probably Tanfoglio's job to show us a prototype that fires from a closed bolt.

These pictures went around the world in 1972. They show three members of the Bavarian police carrying the Walther MP at the Olympic Village in Munich during the attack by the Palestinian group Black September.

Interesting that the people who actually used them professionally seemed to prefer the MPL to the MPK, even though it was less compact. Probably better balance and of course more punch with the longer barrel.

Two police and one customs officer at West Berlin's Checkpoint Bravo in 1977/78, searching for RAF terrorists.
