The DSP9A pistol is produced in the Republic of Korea by Dasan Machineries Co and is offered for export sales. By design and looks Dasan DSP9A pistol appears to be a close copy of the famous Austrian-made Glock 19 pistol, with one major difference being material of the frame. While Glock pistols are using polymer frames, the Dasan DSP9A pistol uses aluminum alloy frame, which makes it about 100 gram heavier than its Austrian prototype. There also are minor differences in the shape of the slide, but overall design is the same.
Dasan DSP9A pistol is short recoil operated, semi-automatic handgun that uses Browning-type locking with vertically tilting barrel, controlled by a cam below its chamber. Barrel locks to the slide by a large lug that enters ejection window. Trigger is striker-fired, with partial cocking of the main spring achieved during the reloading cycle and final cocking and release achieved only through complete pull of the trigger. Gun has no manual safeties, and an automated safety is provided on the trigger. 15-round magazines are compatible with 9mm Glock 19 pistols.
