The gun used by the spies in the 1960's television series U.N.C.L.E. was a modified P-38 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.
