A Polish 9mm submachine gun chambered for .380 Auto. The Rak is a select-fire weapon that fires from an open bolt. Unlike Most SMGs firing from an open bolt position, the RAK features a reciprocating external breech bolt.
It features a relatively unusual bolt design, the bolt being its pistol-like slide which is locked to the rear position when cocked, and moves forward when the trigger is pulled. While this design makes the recoil somewhat more controllable, it makes it harder to maintain a decent sight picture.
The PM73 RAK is not known to have any attachments.
