The Malinnov M1P is an improved NATO-standard 9×19 mm Parabellum round, a series of polymer-framed, short recoil-operated, double-action semi-automatic pistols designed and produced since 2015 by Aegis Malinnov Sdn Bhd, located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Malinnov also offer 1911-style pistols using double-stacked magazines with significantly larger capacities (typically 16 rounds). There will be two variants of the pistols – the first type is to be used for military and law enforcement purposes while the second variant is used for competitive sports shooting.
Malaysian Innovation (MALINNOV) is a Malaysian company which operates its own small arms in the form of a semi-automatic pistol. The design of this weapon involved research and development for four years with almost ten prototypes and each was extensively tested. They develop every tool, barrel and components themselves; and through much trial and error fixed any design prototype that they built. The basics of this weapon were originally from Glock and Beretta pistols and MALINNOV developed a sidearm with this M1P classification for reverse engineering.
