Earlier this year at the Singapore Airshow, Singapore Technologies Kinetics, otherwise known as ST Kinetics or STK, the Singaporean firm who make the Ultimax 100 machine gun, announced their a new PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) type sub machine gun called the CPW (Compact Personal Weapon).

I think that is a kids hand. Photo from textfiend.net.

According to the STK brochure and the pieces of info I picked up on the internet:

  • Can be holstered
  • Lighweight
  • 7″ Barrel
  • Multi-caliber. Currently available in 9mm (30 round magazines)
  • Translucent pistol grip to check rounds in the magazine
  • Comes standard with reflex sight. Iron sights are an optional extra.
  • Retractable stock
  • Low recoil
  • Low cost

Specs:

Length: 350mm
Barrel Length: 180mm (7″)
Mounting system: 2 sets of picatinny rails
Weight without accessories: 1.5kg (3.3 lbs).
Firing modes: semi and auto (selector can be seen on above photo)
Method of operation: delayed blow back
Rate of fire: 900 to 1100 rpm.

I would assume they will also offer a typical PDW round such as the MP7′s 4.6x30mm or the P90′s 5.7x28mm.

The gun looks very similar to the MP7 and I think would be in direct competition with it. It weights less (MP7 weights 4.19 lbs/1.9kg), is slightly shorter in length and has a similar rate of fire. I think the CPW’s main selling point is cost.

This looks like a prototype. It has a slightly
different trigger to the one above.

    WOW,THIS IS A NICE PIECE OF HARDWARE.A FLAWLESS BLEND OF IMPOSITION AND ELEGANCE.HOWEVER,IT DOES LOOK A BIT LIKE THE “H&K 4.6MM MP7-PDW;I’M GUESSING THAT IS WHERE THE INSPIRATION ORIGINATED.BUT DON’T GET ME WRONG;I DO LIKE THE DESIGN.THE FACT THAT IT’S OF MODULAR CONCEPTION,ONLY ADDS TO THE “COOL FACTOR”.ALSO,THE TRANSITION FROM STANDARD 9X19MM PARABELLUM TO NOT-SO STANDARD 5.7X28MM(FiVeSeVEn/P90 PDW)AMMUNITION IS QUITE REMARKABLE.ANY CHANCE IT’LL BE MADE INTO A .177CAL.BB GUN?

    Everyone forget about the “effective Range” for the different Calibers on the Specs for the Weapons. :(

  • Jax

    And the most needed Caliber is the 7.62×39 (Soviet). ;)

  • Giovani

    well, the only flaw I see in the design is actually the retractable stock, way too flimsy

  • that crazy soviet

    Aww its so cute but I still want a 50.cal assault rifle

  • Jones

    It looks a lot more like a TMP than an MP7
