One of the most overlooked pistols of the Second World War was the Radom P35. Today, this is regarded by collectors and historians as being one of the finest pistols of the Second World War. It was influenced very heavily by the Browning Hi Power, but features an improvement in the form of a decocking lever on the slide, which the Browning Hi Power lacks. It also held just 8 rounds in the magazine compared to the 13 of the Browning.
The P35 became the standard issue pistol of the Polish military in 1936. When the Germans easily overrun Poland in 1939, they captured large quantities of the Radom pistol and issued them to their troops, especially to their paratroopers towards the end of the conflict.
