Looks like there is an on again - off again RFP for a new sub machine gun.

One competitor says they are developing a P320 conversion kit.

That could be interesting. Wonder if a civilian version would ever see the light of day?

The Army’s sub gun program is still going, and here’s one of the submissions

It is sort of ironic that the DoD is jumping onto the PCC bandwagon. SIG already has the MPX but I would opt for something more AR like that accepts the same magazines as the standard issue handgun. While the semi-auto PCCs tend to be straight blowback, a short stroke piston with an adjustable gas block would make it easy to tune for sub-sonic or automatic fire. I'm not sure how much lower a big contract could drive parts prices down. It seems like the market is already flooded with lots of options at some of the lowest prices I have ever seen.
