Slow Motion: Egyptian Helwan 9mm


Subscribe to Channel

The Helwan is a licensed copy of the Beretta 1951, made in Egypt. It is a single-stack, single-action 9mm pistol using the same basic locking system as the German P38. This design would later be renovated with a double-stack magazine and a double-action trigger mechanism to become the Beretta 92 eventually adopted by the US military.
