The TOR is a prototype Venezuelan submachine gun.

HistoryEdit

Designed in 1995 by Fernan Altuve Febres, the TOR was an attempt to make a submachine gun that was easy to manufacture. It has been tested by paratroopers, tank crew members and the like of the Venezuelan army. As there was a need to offer the LEOs to make a weapon offering enough stopping power and could fill the gap between a 9mm submachine gun and an assault rifle; with this request in mind, another version of the weapon was made, chambered for the .357 Magnum cartridge. The weapon is currently undergoing patenting in the United States, which is why Febres does not wish to release any detailed images of his firearm at this time.

Design DetailsEdit

As information about the TOR is scarce, not much is known about it. What is known, however, is that it is gas-operated, consists of less than 30 parts, and its barrels feature polygonal rifling. The TOR is fed from 15- or 30-round detachable box magazines fed in the grip. The weapon has a 13 in (33 cm) barrel, although Febres wants to create another version of the weapon with a 16.5 in (42 cm) barrel, meant for the civilian market in the United States.

AmmunitionEdit

The TOR was originally chambered for the proprietary 5.6×36mm cartridge, but after some requests, a second version was made chambered for .357 Magnum; there are plans to produce versions chambered for 9×19mm Parabellum.
