Indian Army and DRDO developed India’s first indigenous 9mm Machine Pistol

 

New Delhi: India’s first indigenous 9mm Machine Pistol has been jointly developed by DRDO and the Indian Army. Infantry School, Mhow, and DRDO’s Armament Research & Development Establishment (ARDE), Pune have designed and developed this weapon using their respective expertise in the complementary areas. The weapon has been developed in a record time of four months. The Machine Pistol fires the in-service 9mm ammunition and sports an upper receiver made from aircraft-grade Aluminium and a lower receiver from carbon fibre. The 3D Printing process has been used in designing and prototyping of various parts including trigger components made by metal 3D printing.

The weapon has huge potential in the Armed forces as a personal weapon for heavy weapon detachments, commanders, tank and aircraft crews, drivers/dispatch riders, radio/radar operators, Closed Quarter Battle, counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism operations, etc. This is also likely to find huge employability with the central and state police organizations as well as VIP protection duties and Policing. The Machine Pistol is likely to have a production cost under rupees 50000 each and has potential for exports. 

The weapon is aptly named “Asmi” meaning “Pride”, “Self-Respect" & “Hard Work”.

Keeping the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of Aatmnirbhar Bharat in view, this small step will pave way for self-reliance and it is expected that the Services and Paramilitary Forces (PMFs) will induct this expeditiously.
