Automatic & semi-automatic 7.62x39mm MZ-47, MZ-4P (Piston), and .300AAC Blackout MZ-300
At Defense & Security 2017, Bangkok, Thailand, next week, on the Israeli Pavilion on stand F-28, Emtan Karmiel Ltd., a manufacturer of small arms, guns, and weapons for the military and law enforcement, launches three new assault rifles based on the MZ-4: The MZ-47, MZ-4P (Piston), and MZ-300 automatic/semi-automatic.
The MZ-47 is a 7.62x39mm automatic weapon compatible with the AK47 standard magazine and ammunition, available in two barrel lengths – 11.5in and 14.5 inches. Both lengths feature upper and lower case aluminum 7075 T6 material with 650-850 RPM rate of fire, front and rear flip-up sights, hard chrome-lined bore and rifling with six grooves RH and 1 twist in 9.45in, and an optional ambidextrous charging handle. The MZ-47 is available also in a semi-automatic version.
The MZ-4P with Piston Operation System is a 5.56X45mm automatic weapon compatible with NATO ammunition and all other variations of 5.56X45mm ammunition and magazines, and is available in two barrel lengths – 11.5in and 14.5 inches. Both lengths feature upper and lower case aluminum 7075 T6 material and an advanced Piston Operation System which delivers a consistent rate of fire while eliminating gas exiting at the rear of the rifle, even when using a suppressor. The rifle is also easy to disassemble and clean by any soldier on the combat field.
The MZ-300 is a 7.62x35mm caliber, .300AAC Blackout automatic weapon available with optional barrel lengths of 9in, 11.5in and 14.5 inches. It utilises 5.56x45mm standard bolts and magazines without any alterations, and is an ideal solution for automatic and semi-automatic firing with short barrels and suppressors. The MZ-300 delivers greater terminal ballistics effects such as stopping power and reduced penetration, with an option of automatic firing with suppressors.
“We chose to launch these three weapons in Thailand since we are aware of the need of the local and regional markets for the type of solutions we offer,” Ron Pollak, VP Sales and Marketing at Emtan, explained. “The Thai market is very important to us. We have longstanding ties with Thai forces, which have adopted quite a few of our products and are very satisfied with them. We highly appreciate this cooperation, and are working towards its continuation.”
