BW-CP "Shade" compact 10mm Pistol

A 10mm caliber compact pistol designed and manufactured by the Department Of Engineering, of the New Dusk Conclave in later YE 41, for use by NDC armed forces and security personnel.

About the Shade

In late YE 41, it became clear the NDC needed a new standard sidearm that was more in line with infantry criteria, and not stealth oriented like the 10mm BW-P2 "Wraith". So the 10mm Shade was developed for an optimal handling, and easy to operate infantry sidearm that could be issued out to the personnel of NDC Ground Forces "Duskerian Legion", by the Department Of Engineering.

The Shade is a 5-inch long compact pistol which is very conventional, yet ergonomic in shape.

There is no exterior hammer at the rear of the slide, giving the Shade a rather rounded overall blocky look.
