Skorpion vz. 61 

A Czech submachine gun that’s almost as famous as the Israeli UZI, the Skorpion is used by the various military and insurgent forces around the world. It comes in a variety of calibers ranging from .32 ACP, .380 ACP, 9mm and 9mm Makarov.  It has a very distinct top folding stock to provide some controllability. A semi-automatic version is available in the U.S through the company Czechpoint. (GRH)

Ak 5C 

Sweden’s standard issue rifle, the AK designation has nothing to do with the Russian family of rifles instead, it stands for AutomatKarbin. Chambered in 5.56x45mm, it is basically a copy of the FN FNC with modifications to meet Sweden’s military needs. This rifle replaced the Ak 4, which itself was a copy of the German G3. (GRH)

Minebea M-9 

A sub-machine gun developed in Japan, it bears a heavy resemblance to the PM-9 and Mini-Uzi. It has a blistering rate of fire; at about 1,100 rounds per minute but the design flaw here is that the Japanese did not include a shoulder stock, making it difficult to control. No semi-automatic model exists since none were ever exported to other countries for the civilian market. (GRH)

HK 94 

The most prized of the original trio (HK 91/93/94) the 94 is essentially a semi-automatic MP5. From the factory, they come with a 16″ long barrel but many get converted into SBR’s (Short Barreled Rifles), restoring it back to its original pedigree. Although quite an old design, it still garners a popular following due to its iconic status in the firearm world. (GRH)

HK 93A3 

The little brother to the G3/HK 91, the HK 93 is chambered in 5.56x45mm. It uses proprietary steel magazines but some companies have made adapters that let you use AR15 mags. Not very many were imported into the U.S prior to the assault weapons ban so they almost always command a higher price when compared to the standard HK 91. The A3 designation is due to the collapsible stock. (GRH)

Yugoslavian M57

This is the Yugo copy of the Russian Tokarev. Many Communist nations had a version of this pistol but the Yugo’s are considered the best in terms of fit and finish and you have the added bonus of frame-mounted safety. There are versions of the M57 that have a trigger safety similar in style to a Glock. Chambered 7.62x25mm, this cartridge is mild shooting but quite fast, even able to defeat some low-level rated body armor. (GRH)
