If you’re like me and grew up playing video games and watching Rambo movies, owning a machine gun (of any sort) may seem like the coolest idea in the world. But, to be frank, true machine guns are nearly impossible to get your hands on (yes, even for simple recreational use and without any intention of injuring anyone) and incredibly expensive.

Fortunately, though, a few companies make a submachine gun that you can get your hands on so that you can take it out to the shooting range to have some fun with it.

One of those companies is Sig Sauer who have released an ultra-compact submachine gun called the MPX Copperhead. Sig Sauer’s website has this to say about this model:

The MPX Copperhead features a monolithic Elite Series Cerakote® finish upper receiver, with an integrated stock knuckle lower, and a 3.5” barrel with integrated muzzle brake. The MPX Copperhead comes equipped with the new SIG SAUER Pivoting Contour Brace (PCB) giving pistol users a brace that easily adapts to the movement of the shooter’s arm with a patented swivel operation for perfect placement, and can be rapidly deployed.
 
Unconventional design, unmatched performance, and familiar AR handling. The SIG MPX redefines the submachine gun category with a new level of operator safety, in-field adaptability and proven reliability in the harshest environments. Completely ambidextrous, the SIG MPX is great for left- or right-handed shooters with its dual-sided selector switch, magazine release, charging handle and bolt release. The SIG MPX operates from a fully-closed and locked rotating bolt, offering enhanced reliability and safety in use. A short-stroke gas piston allows the SIG MPX to run all weights and brands of 9mm ammunition with no adjustments to the gas valve.

As you can see in the picture above, this little SMG is sharp, and, interestingly, Sig Sauer decided to go with a desert coloration which makes the weapon stand out even more than your standard black pistol.

This fascinating little gun looks like it has the potential to bring some welcome fun to your range time, so, if you’re looking for something a little different for your next firearm purchase, this may be one to consider.

  1. I’m going to question as to this pistol being a full automatic. It’s my understanding that there is a finite number of full automatics in this country. The selector switch seems to have only two positions, Safe and Fire (semi auto. presumably).

    • According to current Federal law no new full auto firearms manufactured after the mid 1980s ( not sure of exact year without checking) are sadly illegal for civilian purchase or ownership. I hope that will change in my lifetime though. So currently your understanding is correct.

  3. I believe it is a machine gun…why would they go through all the trouble writing it is a machine gun when it is not?

  4. I believe they have both a fully and semi automatic version of that gun. The law abiding citizens get the semi and the government gets the full auto version. Founding Fathers are no doubt rolling in their graves at that disparity.

    • Only in the PEOPLE-CONTROLLED country of America are you not allowed to own an AUTOMATIC weapon made after 1986. This in itself goes AGAINST what OUR FOREFATHERS stated in the Federalist Papers where the American People ARE ALLOWED to own arms EQUAL to the government!

    • Full auto weapons made before 1986 are still pretty good and maybe better quality. I can think of four I would rather have.😊

  5. Its my understanding that the REAL original INTENT was “MACHINE GUNS MANUFACTURED IN THE USA”–Now obviously you have had interpertations -and in regard to the design and demo and testing I know that we design and sell hundreds of thousands of MACHINE GUNS in the USA .Its a matter of what license and facility you have and are willing to support-have inspected and pay for .
