In Brewtopia, we don't mess around with pea shooters, even for our sidearms. We're also not averse to blatantly stealing proven technology from other nations, so instead of developing our own service pistol, we just "borrowed" one from the Bulgarians, the venerable "Shipka" machine pistol, which the Brewtopian Ministry of Defense has redesignated as the M23A1 Hangover.
The Hangover chambers a Makarov 9x18mm cartridge. The standard magazine holds 19 rounds. A larger 32-round version of the magazine is also available. The M23A1 Hangover has a set of open sights, but is more commonly used with a laser sight, mounted just below the muzzle.
The M23A1 Hangover with safety (small switch above the trigger) on:
The M23A1 Hangover with the stock extended, turning the pistol into a sub machinegun, and the safety in the off position (i.e. "fire").
The M23A1 with the magazine removed, and the safety on the "on" position. A second partially dissassembled magazine is also shown, with the 9x18mm Makarov cartridges inside.
The M23A1 with the magazine removed and the stock extended, and the safety off:
The M23A1 with a disembodied hand grasping the pistol:
Wait, something's not right with that picture.
There, that's better. It's always good to blow the head off your brew, before you blow someone's head off his shoulders.

Beautiful! Reminds me the Scorpion in a way. Love that folding stock. Awesome work, Mark!
Thanks. As I mentioned in an earlier reply, I was considering building some version of the Skorpion for a while, but settled on the Shipka because I liked its shape a little more. There is a lot of similarity between the two pistols, including the folding stock.
