Silenced Shell

I was reading in a book I bought about Soviet/Eastern European firearms made in the past 100 years ...

They had a section about a 7.62x39 handgun round that was essentially used for assassinations because it was a silent round due it's design and pinless firearm.

Anyone know about the technology behind it?

I believe it used a telescoping case that trapped the gasses and propelled the bullet with a piston-like device.
