    I belive that Uzi Galil worked on that project with Ruger.

    Unfortunately, the SMg fell out of favor about that time due to the use of body armor and the ballistic superiority of the M4 style rifle

    Modern Firearms - Ruger MP9 submachine gun
    The Ruger MP9 submachine gun was designed as a compact weapon for law enforcement forces. It is based on basic design of the Uziel Gal (author of the UZI SMG), further improved by the Ruger company. The MP9 was released in 1995 for police and military sales in the USA.
    Basically, MP9 may be called "improved UZI". Main improvements over the Uzi include following: the blowback operated action is redesigned to be fired from the closed bolt, to increase accuracy; the lower receiver with integral pistol grip is made from Zytel polymer, while the upper receiver is made from stainless steel; the buttstock is redesigned, and is of folding / telescoped design. MP9 submachine gun features three positions safety / fire mode selector with "safe", "semi-auto" and "full-auto" positions, as well as a separate firing pin block to increase safety. The quickly detachable barrel is loaded with spring to cushion the impact of the bolt on closure. The cocking handle is located at the top of the receiver.

    Looks open bolt to me. It sure looks like a MAC10/UZI cluster ****.

    The write in the book I got it out of said that they designed it on a closed bolt system, and that also they never made public who they sold them to!

    I wonder if it had the same problems with squeezing triggers like the uzi did. if you squeezed them too slowly they would mis-fire.
