Holek "assault pistol"


The prolific Czech designer Vaclav Holek reputedly developed an early submachine gun-type weapon in the early 1920s while he was working at Praga Zbrojovka. This weapon was apparently known as the "assault pistol" or "attack pistol", but it was only made in prototype form and was never fully produced. Details about the design are unknown, although it may have been influenced by Austro-Hungarian SMG projects from World War I such as the similarly-named Sturmpistole.
