International Ordnance MP2 submachine gun (9x19)

A fine product from a company that mis-spelled their own brand name on the receiver.

Is that a spare magazine in the foregrip?

How does it shoot? I'd be a little leery of it myself.

Fri, Aug. 27th, 2010 04:10 am (UTC)

Yes and I wouldn't dare shoot it myself.

Is there a barrel on that thing? Looks like there's just a chamber and a compensator...

squidb0i: Jeeeez that looks primitive.

Like something someone would build in their garage.

Kinda reminds me of this thing:

воно автоматично стріляє, чи потрібно щоразу передьоргувати затвор?

Fri, Aug. 27th, 2010 06:28 am (UTC)

Automatic mode only, 800-900 rounds/minute.

Oh wow. Makes a Sten look refined.

Not even a safety notch for the charging handle.

bgnad: memories...

Looks a whole lot like a very old Tec-9 I used to own a long time ago....

Fun little gun.

Now there's a revelation for the gun banners. Look what you can make in an afternoon with a basic machine shop, even (especially?) if you're an idiot.

Fri, Aug. 27th, 2010 04:52 pm (UTC)

You don't need the whole machine shop... your average corner muffler shop has what's needed.

Well, they are from Texas... :) I was stationed there--people are not much for spelling there. :D

They misspelled San Antonio, too!

(Anonymous): A few things about the MP-2...

The project was started at least in the 1980s, and yes, this was basically meant to be a "pocket STEN gun" to be used in urban guerrilla actions, to be manufactured cheaply and/or in less-than-well-equipped workshops and distributed to "friendly" undercover forces. Much like the FP-45 "Liberator" pistol of World War 2 heritage, it could be discarded during an escape with no substantial loss for the force's arsenal. It's a blowback-operated weapon that fires at an EXTREMELY high rate of fire, and from the open bolt. It also had its five minutes of Hollywood glory as it appeared in the hand of The Governator himself in the movie "Raw Deal":

If the company is still alive, would you please Oleg provide contact informations, or at least tell me where a sample of said weapon is, to be made object of a full photoshoot session? I work for a gun magazine, here in Italy, and I'd like to write an article on it. You can catch me up on securityarms.com

Send me an email with your contact information. I have quite a few other photos of it and access to the gun for more, if necessary. olegvolk at gmail

The blowback, slamfire auto is probable the simplest firearm made since the matchlock.

It looks like a Sten Mk II and a Mac 10 got together and had a bastard son.

I have been researching the MP-2 for awhile....any new info? I believe I have figured out the designer....Vito Cellini
