Design objectivesEdit

The Pindad PM2 is a submachine gun based on the Pindad SS2, using a similar receiver (although changed to use 9×19mm ammunition), grip, and folding stock. It is designed to exceed the performance of the popular German-made Heckler & Koch MP5.[1] It has a standard MIL-STD-1913 rail on top for optics and comes with a suppressor.

Specifically designed for Close Quarters Combat operations, the PM2 is marketed primarily for military special forces and police Anti-Terrorism teams. The PM2 meets the needs of urban warfare operations, with Pindad having developed non-lethal rubber bullets for the weapon.

There is currently no intention for the local government to purchase the weapon, however foreign buyers are interested in buying the firearm.[1]

VariantsEdit

PM2-V1Edit

The V1 weighs 3.18 kg with its magazine. It is 625 mm long with a blowback firing system

PM2-V2Edit

The V2 is fixed with a silencer. It weighs 3.45 kg and is 720 mm long with its stock extended fully.

PM2-V3Edit

The V3 is fixed with a forward grip and is longer than the V1 but shorter than the V2. It has a picatinny rail on the top body and has a different stock and grip design.

UsersEdit

  •   Indonesia: Indonesian Army and Kopassus[citation needed]
  •   Timor Leste: 75 PM2-V1s bought from PT Pindad.[2][3] Secretary of State Francisco Guterres demanded an answer from the company responsible for importing the PM2-V1s after a senior PNTL officer informed Tempo Semanala that a training session showed some of the submachine guns were defective.[3]
