Photos of illegal TEC-9 submachine gun factory operating in Montreal

Photos have emerged of an underground gun factory which operated in Montreal, Canada to produce high quality copies of the TEC-9 / DC-10 submachine gun for the criminal market. This model of  illicit craft produced machine pistol was previously documented having appeared seized in several police operations.

The factory was discovered by accident after a burglar alarm alerted police to the warehouse of the company located in LaSalle borough. Vice-president of Perfection Metal, Pierre Larivière, 60 and Jean-Pierre Huot, 59 are facing charges relating to the 2014 find. Employees at the factory were apparently  told that they were manufacturing parts for paintball guns.

An easily recognizable feature of these guns is that unlike the original molded polymer lower receiver of the TEC-9 / DC-10, copies were produced using two CNC-machined halves bolted together for ease of construction:

TEC-9 / DC9 copy seized in Canada

firearmsoffences-submachinegunWhat appears to be a home-built copy of the TEC-9 / DC9 pistol seized by police in Canada. The upper receiver appears to have overly crude welding and lacks the distinct barrel lug stampings of the original while its lower receiver has a flat non-standard profile. The open position of its bolt suggests it is likely fully automatic.
