Heckler & Koch MP7A1
The MP7 first entered production in 2001, having been design as either a machine pistol or submachine gun with proprietary hardened steel ammunition with low recoil that penetrates standard body armor more effectively than pistol cartridges used in other submachine guns.
It has a retractable stock and folding front grip, top and side mounted picatinny rails as standard, and folding iron sights. It is in direct competition with the FN P90 for the PDW market, with a similar rate of fire (950 rounds per minute) although it takes 20, 30 or 40-round box magazines while the P90 has a 50-round magazine.
It is in use in 30 countries including special forces such as DGSE SA, Spetsnaz and GSG 9.
