.380 SMG from Brazil

A fairly unique submachine gun seized last month which is chambered in .380 ACP, the same model having been seized on a number of occasions by police in Minas Gerais. It is constructed from bolted together sheet metal plates and appears to use a trigger / grip assembly taken from a speargun.

Two identical models with retractable stocks seized in Belo Horizonte in 2016.
