You mean the fact that decent concealable body armor will protect you from an MP5 (or this PP-2000) and not an M4 (or AKS-74U)? :D Or that the latter can make hits at 200-300 yards, while the former is limited to 100-150 if you're really pushing it out there?

The standard round for those and the new sidearm that Russia will be issuing is essentially a 9x19 +P+ with an armor-piercing steel core.

Won't be seeing that come in as surplus any time soon.

Nice looking gun, I'd love to take it down to the last nut and bolt... odd looking gas system though.
