Portuguese FBP Model 976 in 9x19mm Para

This improved version of the M/948 uses the same mechanical components, with some modifications to improve safety and reliability. The M/976 has a perforated barrel jacket to improve cooling; this incidentally gave better accuracy by better supporting the barrel and increasing stability. The barrel is also made from cold-forged steel, which further improves accuracy by strengthening the barrel. This weapon is mainly used by some former Portuguese colonies in Africa. Weight: 3,12 kg Magazine Capacity: 32 and 36 rounds
