The Briefcase gun is a concealed firearm designed for covert operations, doing business with a bang. It was the Medium Range weapon of the CIA.
The Briefcase gun is just that, a gun inside of a specially designed briefcase. The gun was fired by pulling a string attached to the trigger which was fed through several pulleys and out the top of the briefcase to a ring near the handle of the briefcase. Different models of firearms could be used, with a Walther PPK with a silencer used on the show.

The Briefcase gun is specially designed for covert assassinations when the shooter must remain concealed before, during, and after the hit. With the silencer, the user can fire at his target without drawing unwanted attention to himself.
The main disadvantage is that the weapon can not be aimed as the gun is at the user's knee. Also, while the weapon is initially undetectable, the probability of being found increases exponentially with each shot fired.
This weapon was tested against the KGB's Camera Gun. The briefcase gun killed a target with a lethal shot to the liver, while the camera gun achieved an instant kill by driving a .22 bullet through the left nostril of a gel head. The edge was given to the briefcase gun, since it contained a 9mm PPK: a heavier caliber and longer range weapon that could be fired multiple times.
