The Pindad G2 is a 9×19mm Parabellum handgun designed and produced by Pindad.

Design details

The Pindad G2 is a recoil-operated semi-automatic handgun which harnesses the recoil of the fired bullet to push the slide rearwards, ejecting the spent cartridge of the previous bullet. The slide is then pushed forward using springs, this action extracts a round from the magazine and pushes it in the chamber. Then, the bolt locks by means of locking lugs. Since the firearm is single-action only, the hammer must be cocked manually in order to fire another round.
