Colt 9mm Submachine Gun

The Colt 9mm Submachine Gun is a lightweight compact weapon encompassing the same straight line construction and design with the world known M16A2/A4 Rifle. This straight line construction, coupled with the low recoil associated with 9mm ammunition, provides highly accurate fire with less muzzle climb, especially in full automatic fire. Less recoil also facilitates ease of training and improves accuracy.

Like the M4 Carbine and Commando models, the Colt 9mm SMG fires from a closed bolt, is equipped with a sliding buttstock, and is readily field stripped without the need of special tools. Operation and training are similar to those of the M16A2/A4 Rifle, M4 Carbine or Commando, eliminating the need for substantial cross training.

The Colt 9mm SMG has a 26.7cm barrel and fires all standard 9mm ammunition. It is extremely well suited for military and paramilitary organizations with a definite need for a lightweight, compact weapon required to turn out sustained and controlled fire in close confrontations. It is also ideal in military and law enforcement situations where maximum concealability and lower velocity are required. Furthermore, due to its lack of over-penetration, it is desirable in the following areas: urban environments, boats and ships, in and around buildings, areas with crowds and airfields.

The rear field sight is adjustable for windage and incorporates two flip-type apertures for short range (0-50m) and long range (50-100m). The front sight post is adjustable for elevation. The Colt 9mm Submachine Gun is available with a Safe – Semi – Full Auto fire control selector (model R0635) or a Safe – Semi – Burst selector (model R0639).

The Colt 9mm is a neat weapon. It is currently in use by the DEA C.L.E.T. and they love it.

I think Winchester developed a special load with reduced muzzle flash for use in meth labs.

Some Marine Corps special unit are using them instead of MP5's because the are already familiar with the M-16.

They have the best adaptation of the mag well and mag release going.

Good Post. N/
