View Full Version : Bison 9mm

January 4, 2002, 01:53 PM
I'm curious to know if anybody has seen one of these things before. If you haven't, it's a 9mm SMG based on the AK frame. It's blowback operated, 700rpm, 64 round helical magazine, etc. It uses the 9x18 "special". It's supposed to be more powerful than the standard 9x18. Anybody actually seen one of these? Anybody have any data on the 9x18 "special"?

Google search, the muzzle velocity looks ok, probably a 90 grain bullet though.

Haven't looked at the links HKLVR posted so this may be a rehash but the ammo is higher pressure (velocity) and uses a bullet of a different composition and shape to defeat hard targets. it will, however, use the standard 9x18 without a problem. I wish I could say I have actually handled one but I haven't had the opportunity. I did paw over the supressed 9mm AK variant last month. While I am not an AK fan I would likely make an exception for that one.

I've had the chance to hold (not shoot it, thoug :( ) a Bizon-2 this year. It is simply blowback operated design. Available in choice of calibers - 9mm Short AKA .380ACP, 9x18mm PM/PMM, 9mm Luger and 7.62x25mm TT (latter - with the 32 rd curved box magazine, others with helical drums). The helical drum is very comfortable to hold, the rear grip currently is shaped more like of H&K MP-5 than of AK-74 (very comfortable). Overall, it is a great police entry weapon - a hell of a lot of short-range firepower, very controllable, available with noise dampers, LAMs, red dot sights etc.
