On Wednesday police seized three PA Luty based homemade submachine guns from a house in Penrith, NSW Australia. These designs seem to show up in Australia more than anywhere else.
“Penrith RES investigators have charged a man with manufacturing prohibited firearms after seizing three homemade sub-machine guns at a property in Sydney’s west yesterday.
Earlier this month, officers from Penrith Region Enforcement Squad (RES) established Strike Force Elbon to investigate the manufacture of prohibited firearms in Sydney’s west.
Following extensive investigations, Penrith RES, with assistance from North West Metropolitan Operations Support Groups (OSG), arrested a 45-year-old man outside a licenced premise at Smith Street, Penrith, about 3.30pm yesterday (Wednesday 23 December 2020).
In a subsequent search of the man, officers located and seized $6,000 cash.
A short time later, police executed a search warrant at a home at South Penrith, where officers seized 50 exhibits including three illegally manufactured sub-machine firearms.
Further weapons including numerous firearms parts, ammunition, knuckle dusters, nun-chucks and an electronic stun device were seized.
Investigators also located a stolen motorcycle, documentation and prohibited drugs including 1kg of iodine, and amounts of cocaine, methylamphetamine (ice) and heroin.” NSW Police
Seized by Guatemala National Civil Police. I wouldn’t have expected any less of a hat.

The weapons above were used in any attack which resulted in deaths of two police officers in Odessa carried out by Valentin Doroshenko, a locally known pro-Russian activist who constructed the weapons above along with ammunition. Despite their Heath Robinsonesque looks they none the less proved lethal and effective.
