MGP-79A

Notes: This weapon was designed and manufactured in Peru; it is a basic blowback submachinegun that is very solidly-built. The barrel and jacket may be easily removed and replaced with a silenced barrel. Though the MGP-79A has not been manufactured in nearly 18 years, it is still a very common weapon in the Peruvian Army and police forces, as well as among the Shining Path guerillas.

MGP-84

Notes: This Peruvian weapon is a compact submachinegun designed as a concealable weapon for internal security forces. The weapon is very compact, with no exposed barrel, a telescoping bolt, and magazine well in the pistol grip. It uses Uzi magazines or Peruvian-made magazines which are interchangeable with Uzi magazines. The stock folds to the right, folds nearly flat, and locks securely so that the butt plate can be used as a foregrip when the stock is folded. The barrel retaining cap may be quickly unscrewed; this reveals threads for the attachment of a suppressor or silencer. The MGP-84 is no longer manufactured as of 2006, but is still in wide issue to Peruvian troops and police.

The MGP-14 Micro is basically a reduced-size version of the MGP-84. It uses a shorter barrel and has no provisions for a stock; however, it does have a folding foregrip and an additional manual safety on the left side of the weapon. The MGP-14 is actually heavier than the larger MGP-84; this is due to the use of heavier steel in its construction and a heavier bolt to reduce what otherwise be a runaway rate of fire due to the small size of the weapon.

The MGP-14 Pistol Carbine is essentially identical to the MGP-84, but is designed for semiautomatic fire only, and primarily meant for police forces and civilians. In addition, the weight is greater due a heavier bolt (borrowed from the MGP-14 Micro). It is otherwise identical to the MGP-84 for game purposes, except for the inability to fire on automatic.
