That time Smith & Wesson went Swedish: The M76 sub gun (VIDEO) | Guns.com

Although U.S. special ops types really dug a certain zippy Scandinavian SMG in Vietnam, the Swedes weren’t playing ball.

The classic “Swedish K” or Kulsprutepistol m/45 — a very basic 9mm designed during WWII that ended up being popular for generations — saw use by Navy SEALs and Army Special Forces types in the early days of the Vietnam conflict.

A straight-blowback action weapon that fired from an open bolt, it hummed out NATO standard 9x19mm rounds from a 36-round Suomi-style stick mag at a controllable 600-round per minute cyclic rate.
