This pistol is one of the sidearms used by the People’s Liberation Arm. Development apparently began in 1994.

The photo below shows the necked 5.8mm armor piercing cartridge officially called the QSZ-92-5.8, otherwise known as the 5.8mm Chinese.

A very nice looking photo.

    China and Russia's pistols are capable of firing "unique" bullets (over-pressure in Russia's case and the 5.7x28mm-esque ammo in China's case). I think America needs to put in research about doing something "unique" with their ammo.
