[SHOT 2024] Pindad Teases Indonesian FNC and PM-12 Clones

At SHOT Show 2024, Pindad, renowned for their replication of military-grade firearms, touted the latest in their offering, specifically the civilian versions of the Indonesian SS1 rifle and PM-1 SMG, clones of the famous FNC and PM-12 respectively. The Pindad booth at the show became a center of interest, stirring excitement among not only the military technical equipment enthusiasts but also ordinary audiences.

The SS1, a copy of the precision Belgian FNC rifle, is set to hit the market as a semiautomatic-only handgun. Adding diversity to the choice of consumers, Pindad has announced that they have planned three different barrel lengths for the SS1, a feature that has been warmly accepted by the audience at the show. This groundbreaking debut is a clear response to the ever-evolving needs of users, everyone from the security forces to private security firms and more.

Meanwhile, alongside is the handgun offering of PM-1, modelled as a clone of the Italian PM-12 submachine gun. To comply with US regulations, the PM-1 is set to be adapted from the original open bolt design to a closed bolt design.

As an anticipation of these semiautomatic-only handguns grows, so does the interest in the capabilities of Pindad, already renowned in their home market of Indonesia. The SHOT Show 2024’s revelation heralds an expansion of their product line-up.
