Magpul FMG-9

| Saturday, August 20, 2011 | 1 comments


The Magpul FMG-9 is a new generation of folding submachine guns, designed by Magpul Industries in 2008. It looks like an industrial torch or a portable radio, and will fit in a girl’s handbag or the back pocket of a pair of jeans. One click later, the spring-assisted deployment mechanism snaps and you have a sub machine gun ready to fire. It is made out of a light-weight polymer material rather than metal, making it very light and easy to carry. It is also small enough even to fit in the back pocket of most everyday pants. It was developed for potential use by personal protection details such as the United States Secret Service. It is still a prototype and may or may not be made in large numbers for law enforcement agencies. The prototype uses a semi-automatic firing mechanism from a 9mm Glock 17 pistol. With modification, the FMG-9 could also use the mechanism of a Glock 18 machine pistol for Class 3 or law enforcement use.

PPSh-41 Submachine Gun

| | 0 comments


The PPSh-41 was a Soviet submachine gun designed by Georgi S. Shpagin as an inexpensive, simplified alternative to the PPD-40. It was a short 33 inch (828mm) long blowback operated fully automatic submachine gun with a 10 inch (265mm) chrome lined barrel inside a wooden stock. Intended for use by minimally-trained conscript soldiers, the PPSh was a magazine-fed selective-fire submachine gun using an open-bolt, blowback action. It weighed 12 pounds (5.4 kg) when loaded with a 71-round drum magazine or about 9 1/2 pounds with the more reliable and preferred 35-round box magazine. It fired the same round as the Soviet Torkarev pistol, the 7.62x25mm cartridge. This bottlenecked cartridge was significantly more powerful than the 9x19mm Parabellum round used by German and Allied armies for submachine guns. The 7.62x25mm carried a 85grain bullet that came from the barrel at a scorching 1500 feet per second. In a pinch it could also fire the same 7.63x25mm round as the Broomhandle Mauser. Its rate of fire was a super fast 900 round per minute. This pistol sized round and the weight of the weapon allowed for practically no felt recoil when compared to other weapons.
