New (relatively) Chinese Military 9x19mm


#1

About 2005 China introduced the Model JS silenced submachine gun in 9x19mm. The JS 9mm was described as weighing 2.2 kg empty and 2.4kg loaded with a 30 round magazine. It is 450mm long without the suppressor. The ammunition was described as the 9 x 19 mm DAP92A round which is 29.95mm long and weighs 12.6g, with its 8g projectile being 19mm long. With a muzzle velocity of 360m/sec it also can penetrate 50mm of timber at 50m. With the suppressor fitted, the muzzle velocity of the round drops to 150m/sec.

In 2006 There was a report of a new Chinese 9 x 19mm low impact and wounding round which uses an 11.6g projectile with a muzzle velocity of 378 m/sec. The cartridge is 29.9mm long overall and weighs 11.6g
with the projectile weighing 7g.

Has anyone heard anything further on either of these cartridges?

Cheers,
