This submachinegun, produced by the GORDA STATE ARSENAL of the caucasic and former soviet Republic of Georgia, bucks current trends in SMG design. Most newer submachineguns are not actually true submachineguns, they are "small assault rifles" or "personal defense weapons" firing assault rifle cartridges or reduced assault rifle cartridges. The Gorda is, however, a standard submachinegun, firing pistol rounds. Such weapons are not as effective as small assault rifles or PDWs, but are much more inexpensive to build and feed. The Gorda is basically something to do with a worn out AKM - it is an AKM receiver that has been modified to fire 9x19mm-Parabellum ammunition, after appropriate modifications, a new buttstock, and a new barrel and magazine. The AKM receiver itself has been modified as little as possible to allow this. The barrel can be unscrewed and replaced with a suppressed barrel.
