Questions about 1960's Cold War Era Weapons
Hello. I just joined the forum. My name is Keith. I'm in my late 30's and live in North Carolina. I did some hunting as a kid, but I didn't grow up in a family that had a lot of guns around. I'm trying to learn more now. I thought this forum looked pretty interesting. I'm also a big fan of history. I wanted to learn more about the history of guns. Right now I'm really interested in the 1960's. I had a few questions about the guns that would have been popular during the 60's Cold War era. I hope this is the best place to post such questions. If not, I apologize.
What handguns by the mid-1960's could have been equipped with a silencer? I guess I'm curious as to what a secret agent could have used during this time period besides a Walther like James Bond. Specifically were there any models of Sig Sauer or Browning that could have been used with a silencer?
What was the most popular handgun and machine gun used by the Soviets during this time period?
What was the most popular handgun and machine gun that was used by those in NATO?
Thanks so much. I look forward to your feedback. Take care. Happy New Year. Keith
