   The Ruger MP9 submachine gun is similar to the IMI Uzi. It was designed as a compact weapon for law enforcement forces. This submachine gun was introduced in 1995. The Ruger MP9 SMG has some improvements over its predecessor. It has been tested by US special operations forces. However this weapon was produced only in limited numbers.

   It is a blowback operated, selective fire weapon, chambered for the standard 9x19 mm ammunition. It fires from the closed bolt and has improved firing accuracy, comparing with its predecessor. Its range of effective fire is around 75 meters. Some parts of this SMG are made from polymer, to save weight. For cleaning and maintenance this weapon can be easily stripped into six major components.

   A safety / fire mode selector switch is located on the pistol grip. It has semi-auto and full-auto settings. An automatic grip safety was removed. The cocking handle is located on top of the receiver. This weapon can be cocked using either hand.

   Magazine housing is located inside the pistol grip. This weapon is fed from 32-round magazines. It uses the same magazines as the Uzi. The MP9 has a redesigned folding stock.
