    I have heard there will be civilian legal MP9. I know B&T makes a semi auto MP9. Id love one with that rifle stock and a 16in bbl.

    The Ruger MP9 was invented by the same guy who did the Uzi. He worked with Ruger for a while in the 80s I think. He said it was the best SMG ever. Obviously he is biased towards the uzi design style and 9x19mm, but I wouldnt have minded owning one.

    Stupid 86 ban.

    The new MP9 by BT is derived from the Steyr TMP and is a different design. Steyr sold them the blueprints and stuff. The semiauto TMP sucked because the real TMP has a 2 stage trigger where the first stage is semiauto and squeezing harder makes it go FA. When they converted it, you had a very long sloppy trigger pull to get to the SA position.

    Oh yeah. I know. B&T bought the design though. I was hoping there would be a new civi B&T MP9

    update!

    I got an email back from DSA that said:

    "Hi Nick,

    Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. We have been very behind on
    e-mails.

    Thanks for your kind words. Please be patient, as we are working on a
    civilian version of the MP-9 for you.

    Keep in touch with us and stay tuned for updates. Good things do come to
    those who wait.

    Thank You!"
