MAC-10

description
When the US army called for a smaller submachine gun, Gordon Ingram answered with the MAC-10. They were designed for warfare in small areas and for close encounters, as the 60 metre range limited any long range attacks. Its incredibly high rate of fire - over 1000 rounds a minute - meant that they were too powerful for most operations. The barrel can also accept an exceptionally well-designed sound suppressor. This was one of its main benefits, so when the US government changed laws regarding exportation, the MAC-10 stopped selling. The Military Armament Company became bankrupt soon after, and all rights to the production of these weapons were given to RPB Industries. The gun is now known as an incredibly reliable fast-action firearm, and is now popular with enthusiasts. Take a look at the 45 ACP bullet which helped this gun gain such a great reputation!!

Put simply, the larger diameter causes more damage and disabling targets more effectively. It has a few downsides though...
