Top Ten Best Submachine Guns
The Top Ten
Mini uzi variant is tough to beat high rate of fire and comparable muzzle velocity to full size uzi. Regular uzi still excellent
Safe, simple, rugged, reliable, time-tested, and very popular. The 9mm ammunition is admittedly weak, but it is readily available and the slow rate of fire means that you do not use bullets up too fast. While it may not be the most accurate smg, I feel that the "peoples weapon" aspects outweigh this.
Regular size for sure. If you own one then you will know why it is the best.
Best gun I've held in smg it's rugged reliable everything screams this should be at least in the top 3
Really useful and very compatible with attachments. The best of all of 'em
The MP5 is the standard weapon of the SAS. Loved by all western counter-terrorism units. A high rate of fire and good accuracy. Extremely versatile.
awesome smg/assault rifle. Fully automatic, highly lethal when sprayed. Loved by SAS.
highly accurate. best gun ever.
There's a reason this gun is very, very popular... It's made by Heckler & Koch that's all a fast, light, military approved gun needs. Besides it's very accurate for a SMG. Let this gun do the talking!
Compact, low recoil, small but fast round and can be used with one hand; Ammo may be difficult to purchase; Execellent weapon that has excellent range even when suppressed.
Best of the best!
How is uzi #1 what...
Great gun used by the Navy SEALs
Judging by the weapons voted into the top 10, I feel like a large portion of voters base their positions on Call of Duty...
You know it is possible to play games and go shooting in the real world as well? Rainbow Six introduced me to the world of guns in the late 90s and as soon as I was old enough I hit the range.
I bet half of the people who said that the top 7 guns on here are good have been playing way to much Call of Duty.
Good thing, Russian should again begin to produce many different good things, I think they could make a good competition to all
Amazing gun. Best I've ever fired in 9mm
Reliable and extremely accurate. Like 9mm + P better than 5.7 x 28. Is the new mp5 replacement!
Bad ass! This sub rocks! Accurate, reliable and built to last!
An extremely maneuverable firearm with great accuracy!
MOST of the people who will disagree with this have absolutely no experience with firearms and he's never even shot any of the above mentioned weapons
The vector recoil mitigation system is unprecedented. Not to mention you can chamber this bad boy in 10mm, making the competition pellet guns.
If anything, this gun deserves to be in the top 5, the Uzi can't come through at ranges the Vector can hit, and be accurate.
Recoil reducing system makes what would have already been a manageable weapon even lovelier. Best ergonomics of all guns on list as well as most compact
Better than the thompson, MP5, MP40, Uzi and the Kriss Super V in every way. Very accurate and exreamly popular. Awesome fire rate at 900rpm.
Great rate of fire, great range, great accuracy, and great size. Used by the secret service, Belgan military, and over 40 nations. Has a reflex sight, a 50 round horizontal magazine, and shoots up to 2,000 yards.
Brilliant unique design. 50 round magazine is a big plus... Good rate of fire, and the magazine lays horizontally on top of the gun right near your face so you can see how many shots you have left.
Awesomest gun every produced lighter than an assault rifle, more power than an SMG. Used by over 40 countries. Large mag.
Probably highest magazine ever.
Large clip size.
This has more than twice the amount of bullets than an assault rifle. It may not have long bullets but that is not what SMGs are made for.
Bizon nubs buy p90
Not only is it sexy as hell but it's wonderfully balanced...
Who cares about accuracy, just think about its fire rate and damage, this is my favorite submachine gun
When it comes to real life the gun has like no recoil and the fire rate is is just like it is in video games and is durable and go through tones of torture and abuse and the thing still operates just put the fing in mud or sand or water and pull it out and will still work.
I have half the list and this suppressed surpasses them all.
Best penetration(there is no bulletproof vest to protect soldier under 100-200 m) range 400m
100 bullet each magazine(bullets are very light)
only problem is that bullets are scarce.excellent for short operations
Glock 18 full auto is my favorite, light and reliable it suits my personality...
Glock makes the best pistols so their sub machine gun is perfect
G18 is a machine pistol not sub-machine gun
Glock is very strong and I don't know the oder guns
The only reason it is the successor to the mp5 is that it is cheaper. Not as good for spec forces.
Fire rate and compactness are plus points, magazine could be a bit bigger though.
No recoil, high stopping power, good accuracy, lightweight
This is actually the successor of th mp5, which means it's better
This shouldn't be a top lol very unreliable and accuracy is non existent. This should be a pistol that is strictly a range gun. You may get lucky and get one that's a fluke and has no issues but nearly impossible.
It's what chief keef use
I have a Intratec DC-9. This gun shouldn't even be compared to any of these other ones lol. All its good for is a fun range gun.
You honestly expected Al Capone's boys to use BARs and M1903 Springfields against Bugs Moran?
It has a 100rd drum, 50rd drum, 30rd, 20rd stick magazines. And the most bad ass, coolest looking gun. I just wish WE THE PEOPLE, would demand immediate change to allow all guns to be purchased without Tax stamp and background check.
Dad had one from D-day to Berlin suburbs, helped stop the Bulge, for myself used on many operations, to this day my son has chosen to use on a couple dozen operations throughout the world. It works gets dirty and kicked around picked up wiped off and continues to do its job killing evildoers. I wish only evildoers... Frank
Most american comment ever made. All gun laws are infringements.
This should be at least #3, the Kriss super V has broken a whole new barrier for weapons development since the m16, maybe even the 1911! This gun houses the one and only super v system that separates it from all other firearms because it's bolt drops back and down (decreases recoil and weapon jam)! Plus, this little bitch houses A.45 cal round which packs a huge punch and is fairly accurate for what it is!
Hell yes! Super V is one of my all time favorites. The only bad thing is that it goes dry of bullets, like, über fast. But I mean hey! Check out that RPM; sick! :O
Why on earth is this not the number one SMG? It's got everything for heavens sake! Pinpoint accuracy, damn cool power and very little recoil. For me this is my fave!
A smg that fires.45 cal at 1200 rpm with minimal kick back and muzzle climb in a compact and futuristic frame. What is not to love?
Half as heavy as the mp5, extremely accurate, rust proof,
Copied the mp5
The best ever sub machine
It's slow, but accurate; cheap, and can be made by a car company in the 1900's; can be changed from.45 acp to 9mm rounds, not to mention a.45 acp suppressed M3 is silent, really silent.
On the other hand, I would really like a new, modern, and even lighter variant; with the same heavy bolt (since that was the exact reason why it exists). The Philippines remade their M3's, adding some camo paint, a sight, and a suppressor; perfect for infiltration.
Cheap to make, very reliable, can be controlled with one hand,
Something but still good
Tiny and reliable
These guns are being popular in battle royale games like FreeFire and PUBG
Manufactured & Designed in 1940 at Germany. The MP-40 is considered one of the most used firearm by soldiers.
This awesome sub should be way up the list, even above the Thompson, being highly proven on the battlefield with fine German engineering and ultra reliable.
I have one, super reliable, impressive technology.
Most reliable magazine in any SMG to date, in strong contrast to its brother the STEN
Very reliable and accurate,
Simple and effective
Should be number one it sprays 30 rounds of 45 in a few seconds and is concealable
Forgetting its low range, rate of fire and low ammo because of its RPM, it's the best SMG ever...to me
2nd place gangster gun. 1st is the Tommy Gun. But this SMG will outshoot pretty much every gun when it comes to rate of fire.
Its most compact smg ever made
A tmp was made after the steyr aug. An auto pistol. Somtimes used by the marines.
This thing is a beast! I play airsoft and played with this for a year and it is the best gun on the field!
How is this not first? It's the most accurate out of all of these rifles with a high rate of fire and reliable it also has a devastating round.
I hate it
Amazing Smg! Futuristic look but Itś not all for show, it reduces the recoil a lot as well.
.45 cal and very little recoil is a winner in my book. A bit expensive though but Itś really a uniqe piece to own. - Dan
This weapon was still being used by Australians in Vietnam, excellent SMH and perfect in jungle warfare...
Always compared favourably with other ww2 weapons. Drop it in the mud and it still worked.
Never fired one but held one. A bit crude and not at all a pretty but as others would testify, if you positively and absolutely need rounds down range, the Owen was unstoppable.
Reliable and fulfills the ideological and doctrinal needs of a submachine to a Tee. Nothing better
