NORINCO 7.62 mm Type 85 silenced sub-machine gun
NORINCO 7.62 mm Type 85 silenced sub-machine gun The NORINCO 7.62 mm Type 85 is a simplified and lightened version of the silenced 7.62 mm Type 64 sub-machine gun, produced principally for export. It appears to be based on the simple mechanism of the Type 85 light sub-machine gun, but is of about the same size as the Type 64 and uses similar silencing arrangements. The Type 85 is regulated for the 7.62 × 25 mm Type 64 silenced cartridge but it is also possible to fire the standard Type 51 pistol cartridge, although the silencing effect is much reduced and there will also be the problem of bullet noise. With the Type 64 cartridge, the sound of discharge is reduced to less than 80 dB.
