Default Italian home made firearms

Pierangelo, what is it? The weapon is fed from 9-mm Glock magazines.

Default Re: Italian home made firearms

I don't really think it is made in Italy. Instead I have a picture of a very similar firearm (see it attached) that's a knock-off "machine-pistol" from the PLETER M-91 clandestine-manufactured sub-machinegun that was made in Croatia during the war in the Balkans. My guess is that it's something similar. Italian criminal organizations have laid their dirty hands upon lots and lots of firearms during that war...

I would really like to take a clooser look to all the firearms the Carabinieri must have confiscated during this operation... besides, note that the insigna on the man's jacket says "Artificieri" ("Bomb Squad")...
