Production

The CMK-42.42 was developed during the 3rd TMIU War by New Chinese gunsmith Hung Ko in collaboration with the New Chinese Military. Hung was originally contracted to work with the 2nd New Chinese Arms Development Branch (2nd NCADB) to create a service pistol for the New Chinese Military. The weapon was designed in only 4 days and was adopted and rushed into production with the designation of Chinese Military Ko 42.42 (it being the 42nd weapon designed by the 2nd NCADB and .42 being a rough, though incorrect, estimate of its caliber in inches.) The first version of the gun loaded from the top, however Hung later personally designed a magazine fed variant, though this version was produced in minimal numbers.

Service
