Drug cartel DIY open-bolt automatic rifles

A development in improvised weaponry spearheaded by South America’s drug cartel armorers has been the blow-back operated open-bolt automatic rifle. The simple solution to the usual intricacies of a typical assault rifle’s locking, delay or gas operation is to essentially make a scaled-up submachine-gun with a very heavy bolt capable of operating at much higher pressures. Using a fixed firing pin and firing from the open-bolt position allows for relatively simple construction with minimal components. Police helicopters are rumored to be some of the intended targets.

Homemade submachine guns – Canada

The signature offset position of this example’s trigger and general receiver layout signal that it was probably based somewhat on the P.A Luty vol.II machine pistol design. Additions include a longer round receiver fitted with end caps, a STEN bolt turned down in diameter, a STEN type magazine well copy welded in place and an M16 type pistol grip.

A very crude example seized more recently which appears incomplete.
