ST Kinetics CPW (Compact Personal Weapon)

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

  • Aruna M a new brand sub machine gun is coming to the market,better than cpw watch out for it.
