A pair of nearly identical pocket pistols, the Reck P6 gas-firing pistol and Reck P8 .25 caliber pistol, were produced by Karl Arndt Reck Sportwaffenfabrik from the mid-50s to the late 60s. While the P6 was intended mostly for West Germany and other European states where gun laws allowed only less-lethal weapons, the P8 was extensively exported to the USA, where it was sold under the names LA Fury and Chicago Cub. This typical "Saturday Night Special" gun has a steel frame and Zamac zinc alloy slide. Several German companies also produced the Reck P8 under license. Among these versions are the Gecado Model 11 produced by G.C. Dornheim and imported to the USA by Hawes Firearms Company, and the Valor SM-11 produced by Indian Arms. These pistols, while internally the same, have differently placed safeties and the slide serration have different shapes. Less-lethal guns of the family also include starter the pistols P6S and P10, and an improved version of the gas pistol, the P800.

Internally, all these guns are based on the Walther Model 9 pistol.
