The Danuvia submachine gun, or the Király Géppisztoly, is a Hungarian submachine gun.

HistoryEdit

Designed in the late 1930s, the weapon was issued to Hungarian army troops in 1939. The Danuvia submachine gun was similar to a carbine, due to its size. While inspired by the Beretta Model 38, the Danuvia used a slightly more powerful round. Like the Beretta design, the magazine can be folded forward into a recess in the stock where it can be stowed away for easier storage.

Design DetailsEdit

The Danuvia uses lever-delayed blowback, using a patented two-part delayed blowback bolt. The fire selector is a circular cap on the rear of the receiver. The ejection port and the cocking handle are on the right of the receiver.

VariantsEdit

The Danuvia was originally designed as the 39.M; it was later modernized as the 43.M, with a distinctive curved magazine and a shortened barrel. The 39.M had a second variant which was the 39.M/A, featuring a folding wooden stock.
