The main buyers of PL-15 pistols should be special forces, the army and the police. The gun has a frame made of high-strength aluminum alloy with interchangeable backstraps and accessories rail. Lebedev PL-15 pistol is short recoil operated, locked breech handgun that uses modified Browning HP-type locking; barrel engages the slide to lock via large extraction window at the top. Frame is made from aluminum alloy, and features extremely low bore axis, carefully calculated grip shape and angle that leads to great “pointability”, and minimal overall thickness of the gun.
