Gathered here are 12 high-quality photos and the complete story of the Model HD MS, or at least as much of it as has been publicly acknowledged over the years. Trace the development of this classic suppressed pistol from the war period, how it stacked up against many other weapons of its era, and its deployment and use through World War II, the Cold War, Vietnam, and even the Global War on Terror.
