Submachine gun workshop bust in Santa Catarina, Brazil

A workshop which produced 9mm submachine guns as well as presses used for production of ecstasy tablets raided in Sanata Catarina in June. Each weapon was sold on to criminal contacts for between 12 to 13,000 BRL ($4000 USD). The guns are constructed from steel tubing and operate in a simple open bolt, blowback manor and are provided with a folding wire stock. The magazines are also made from scratch.
