Authentic Man From U.N.C.L.E. P-38 Special
1984 "Megatron" toy, in gun form.

The customized pistol is the primary weapon used by the U.N.C.L.E. operatives in the 1960's television series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. that starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. This weapon is in reality a modified Walther P38 with a shortened barrel and a threaded muzzle. A number of accessories were built for the pistols by studio armorers including a shoulder stock, (non-functional) sight mount, extended magazine, silencer and barrel extension.

This weapon was also well-known a generation later as the alternate form of the Decepticon leader Megatron in the animated series and toy line Transformers. Originating in Takara's "Microman" toy line as the "MC-12 Gun Robo," the toy is a reasonably faithful replica of the P-38 special including the stock, barrel extension and scope accessories.
