K14-VN is a new service pistol of the Vietnamese army. It is based on the proven, but obsolete K54 pistol, which, in turn, is a copy of the Soviet Tokarev TT pistol which dates back to 1933. K14-VN is externally and internally similar to K54 / TT, except that it has a slightly longer barrel and a wider grip frame which contains double-stack magazine of increased capacity. K14-VN pistol is produced by state owned factories.


K14-VN is a semi-automatic pistol single action trigger and external hammer. No manual safeties are provided on the pistol except for the half-cock feature of the hammer. It is of all-steel construction, with Browning-type tilting barrel locking. Recoiling barrel is connected to the frame through a swinging link, an old system derived from US M1911 pistol. Pistol uses proprietary, double stack single feed magazines with 13-round capacity. Sights are fixed and non-adjustable.
