Fully automatic handgun. Hardly ever used by Police forces but sometimes used by Special Forces. It eats ammunition like Jade Goody ate kebabs and has a high tendancy to jam.

Often seen in the movies, (coupled with MP5-K's) being wielded sideways and with one hand. Miraculously, no-one ends up:

  • A -- Getting shot
  • B -- With a sprained wrist
  • C -- A bloody nose from the blow back
