   The PM-06 is a Polish submachine gun. It is a further development of the PM-98. It has some minor improvements over its predecessor, such as a different buttstock and different sights. The PM-06 is used by the Polish military and law enforcement forces.

   This weapon can be used by reconnaissance units, special forces, staff officers, vehicle drivers, artillery crews and some non-frontline units.

   The PM-06 is a simple blowback operated weapon. It fires from a closed bolt. Internally it has similar design features as the older PM-84P Glauberyt submachine gun. This weapon is chambered for a standard 9x19 mm Parabellum pistol round.

   Though the Polish PM-06 is a decent weapon, it can not match performance of the next-generation submachine guns, such as the German MP7, which is smaller, lighter, has longer range and superior penetration.

   A fire mode selector is located over the pistol grip. It has 3 positions for "safe", "semi-auto", and "full-auto".

   A charging handle is located on the left side of the receiver. It is no longer bent upwards, as was on the PM-98. This weapon has got a last shot bolt hold. It speeds ups reloading of the weapon.

   This submachine gun is fed from 15- or 25-round capacity magazines. These are compatible with the PM-98 submachine gun, but are not compatible with the older PM-84P Glauberyt submachine gun. Magazine release lever is located on the thumb position and resembles typical slide release levers.

   The PM-06 has a slightly different collapsible wire stock, than its predecessor. It has 3 adjustable retracted positions. When not required, the stock is collapsed into the weapon.

   The PM-06 has got slightly different iron sights than the previous PM-98. The rear flip-up sight has settings for 75, or 150 meters. Also this weapon comes with a Picatinny-type scope rail as standard. It is one of the most significant improvement over the previous PM-98, which was fitted with a scope rail only optionally. The PM-06 submachine gun can mount various red dot sights. Effective range of fire is up to 150 meters. However this weapon is typically used on closer ranges. The PM-06 is reportedly an accurate weapon.

   This weapon has got a hollow polymer foregrip. A tactical flashlight or laser pointer can be mounted into the foregrip. The whole forward grip can be replaced by Picatinny-type accessory rails. This weapon can mount a sound suppressor. Once silenced it requires special subsonic ammunition.

 

Variants

 

   BRS-99 is a semi-automatic only version of the PM-06. This weapon can be seen as an assault pistol. It was specially developed for law enforcement forces. The BRS-99 has a foregrip with a vertical grip similar to that of the original PM-84 Glauberyt.
