UPC: 0684659980748 MPN: PM-63C

Polish PM-63C RAK Semi-Auto Pistol 9x18 Caliber Pistol Package. This sku comes complete with 1-15 round magazine, 1-25 round magazine and original issue type holster. Manufactured by Pioneer Arms Radom Poland - Imported and Warrantied by Pioneer Arms U.S.A.

The PM63's Polish abbreviation “RAK” stands for “Commandos Hand-held Automatic” pistol. It is a relatively light and compact firearm originally issued as a select fire pistol intended for close quarters combat. It was significantly lighter and smaller than contemporary Heckler & Koch MP5. The PM-63 is well balanced and can be fired from one hand, just like ordinary pistols. A unique feature of this pistol is the slide which protrudes in front of the barrel. This allows the pistol to be cocked in a traditional way, or simply by sticking the protrusion into hard objects, such as walls, desk tops, etc... so the shooter can easily cock the weapon single handedly. The protrusion also acts as a compensator, which deflects some of the gases upwards and reduces muzzle climb. This sku comes complete with 2 mags and original holster. - See Brutus' Description for Full Details.

Brutus' Description

Polish PM-63C Semi-Auto Pistol 9x18 Caliber Pistol Package complete  W / 1-15 and 1-25 Round Mag,and Original Holster.  Manufactured by Pioneer Arms Radom Poland - Imported and Warrantied by Pioneer Arms U.S.A. The PM63 pistol was designed by the same man who designed before WWII famous RADOM 9 mm VIS pistol. The unique design feature of the PM-63 is that instead of a normal internal bolt a slide is fitted.

The “Sexy," eye catching design was created in Poland a full twenty years before development of the PDW in the West making this a very historic and collectible design. The Polish abbreviation “RAK” stands for “Commandos Hand-held Automatic” pistol. It is a relatively light and compact firearm originally issued as a select fire pistol intended for close quarters combat. It was significantly lighter and smaller than contemporary Heckler & Koch MP5. The PM-63 is well balanced and can be fired from one hand, just like ordinary pistols.

A unique feature of this pistol is the slide which protrudes in front of the barrel. This allows the pistol to be cocked in a traditional way, or simply by sticking the protrusion into hard objects, such as walls, desk tops, etc... so the shooter can easily cock the weapon single handedly. The protrusion also acts as a compensator, which deflects some of the gases upwards and reduces muzzle climb. Comes complete with holster.

In the original military configuration these pistols were select fire but this variation comes as an ATF approved semi-automatic version. Still, knowing the history on these is really cool so see some links attached to review and learn about the fine history of this firearm. Also, see the image of an actual PM-63 laying on the desk of former PLO leader Yasser Arafat.

A history of the pistol.

The PM-63 RAK (short for Reczny Automat Komandosow- "Commandos' Hand-held Automatic") is a Polish 9x18 mm submachine gun, designed by Piotr Wilniewczyc (DESIGNER OF FAMOS 9 mm VIS PISTOL) in cooperation with Tadeusz Bednarski, Grzegorz Czubak and Marian Wakalski. The RAK combines the characteristics of a self-loading pistol and a fully automatic submachine gun. It is in effect an early personal defense weapon.

Development of the RAK dates back to the late 1950s when the concept was first proposed at the Warsaw University of Technology in response to a requirement for a light hand-held defensive weapon for rear-echelon soldiers such as gun crews and vehicle drivers. After the death of the chief designer Piotr Wilniewczyc in 1960, the submachine gun's development was completed by the state operated Lucznik Arms Factory (ARCHER PLANT No. 11) in the city of Radom, where it was produced until 1977. The PM-63 was accepted into service with the Polish Army and Police in 1965 as the 9 mm submachine gun model 1963.

Today...Pioneer Arms, has redesigned this historical firearm to shoot semi-automatic from a closed bolt position. The safety is located at the left rear of the trigger guard. The receiver is made from machined steel. The rear sight is an L-shaped flip type and is marked for 75 and 150 meters distance. The front sight is a fixed blade. The pistol is equipped with a simple muzzle compensator. This firearm is an ATF approved pistol. The stock has no function and is permanently fixed in its folded closed position.

This pistol is manufactured at the famed Radom Plant in Poland. All parts and components are Polish made. Under this sku the PM-63C pistol comes with two magazines... a 15 round and a 25 round, and a holster. 

Quantities on these are limited and there will only be a very limited qty of these pistols ever imported into the U.S.
