Taurus SMT9C and SMT40C submachine guns: the compact ones
Together with the previously-described SMT9 (9x19mm) and SMT40 (.40 S&W) submachine guns, Forjas Taurus also created more compact versions of both, a really simple affair involving the use of a shorter (165mm instead of 200mm) barrel, with no flash hider, fitted to very same weapon body. The stockless guns, designated SMT9C and SMT40C, had an overall length of 410mm, empty weight being 2.6kg. All basic features were maintained, such as the firing modes (semi-auto, full-auto, and 2-round bursts), sight radius, Picattiny rails, etc. They were ready by 2011
A somewhat modified derivative of the 9x19mm model was also made and eventually found a foreign costumer, the Bangladesh Police. In 2015, that organization took delivery of 500 examples of the SM9C fitted with the standard polymer folding stock, but featuring an M4-type carry handle/rear sight unit and a smaller front sight. In December, 2016, an additional 2,500 guns were received, but these had the standard sights mounted on the top Picattiny rail.
