Genar SMG

The Genar submachinegun was a development of the TZ45, which was developed during WWII and manufactured into the 1950s. We don’t have much more information on the Genar, but we do have a nice set of photos, thanks to our friend Roberto Allara in Italy.

    Fascinating! What is the spring around the barrel for? Looks like a straightforward blowback SMG, but there’s this extra spring. Is it for cooling? Maybe a recoil buffer, but for 9mm? Not on the TZ45…
