The PP-2000 is a modern sub machine gun of Russian origin. The PP-2000 was designed as a personal defence weapon for military use and as a compact weapon for law enforcement use. With its distinctive looks the PP-2000 can be easily recognized.
The PP-2000 is a compact weapon made of metal and polymer. It uses a blowback mechanism and fires from the closed bolt position. The bolt extends above the barrel and is fitted with a cocking lever. The magazine is seated in the pistol grip. The forward grip is an integrap part of the weapon. The PP-2000 can be used with the side folding stock in both folded and extended position. A Picatinny mount allows optics to be fitted and a special mounts allows for accessories to be mounted below the forward grip.
The PP-2000 fires the 9x19mm Parabellum round from a 20 or 44 round magazine. Aside from NATO ammunition the more powerful Russian 7N21 and 7N31 may be used. These have much improved armor piercing characteristics. The rate of fire is a manageable 600 to 800 rpm. The maximum range is quoted as 200 meters. The effective range is about 100 meters in semi-automatic mode and about 50 meters using short bursts.
The PP-2000 is used in limited quantities by Russian law enforcement personel. Small quantities may be used by the Russian military.
The PP-2000 is produced in only one version. The early production models did not feature a Picatinny rail or a side folding stock. Magazines could be inserted at the rear to serve as a crude stock. Newer models are often fitted with Russian or Western reddot sights. A light or laser can be attached below the forward grip.
