    Hello Kherno,

    You should call this M56 a sub-machinegun. A machine gun usually fires rifle ammo. SMG's fire pistol ammo.

    This 9mm Parabellum M56 is based on the MP40 design, hence the likeness!

    Cheers,
    Emile

    Hi !

    Originally the Zastava 1956 Pattern submachine gun fires the soviet Tokarev M1930 7.62x25 round, also, the Mauser 7,63x25 round.

    Cheers,
    R.
