The M57 is a submachine gun manufactured by the Buenos Aires based Halcon corporation. As good as the M-1943 submachine guns were, the M57 was requested as it was a lighter/cheaper alternative as FN FAL rifles fulfilled this role in Argentine service. The weapon is chambered in 9 x 19 mm Parabellum for the Argentine Army and in .45 ACP for Police Forces, fed from 30 round magazines. A later variant of the M57 was the M60 which housed a two trigger group which enabled select fire capabilities.
