The PM-63 RAK is a Polish submachine gun, used extensively by Polish Special Ops units and Airborne units as well as special police divisions when Poland was an active member of the Warsaw Pact. In Polish, referred to as the Pistolet Maszynowy "RAK" PM-63 the gun was produced by Z.M. Lucznik, Radom, Poland, in caliber 9mm Makarov. It was well known amongst gun scholars, due to being one of the few actual submachine guns being issued behind the iron curtain in the post-war period (between the late 1940s and early 1970s). In China, the PM-63 was copied and is produced without license as the Type 82 submachine gun (82式冲锋枪)

RAK is an acronym of "Ręczny Automat Komandosów" that means: Hand-held Commando Automatic Pistol (SMG can be translated as "Pistolet Automatyczny" - "Automat"), or SMG designed for Commandos.

Trivia Special

The PM-63 was not really used in Red Dawn contrary to many inaccurate reports. The character of Colonel Strelnikov used a Finnish Jatimatic 9mm submachine gun, since the filmmakers at the time could not acquire a real PM63 due to the Cold War and subsequent import ban on Combloc weapons during the 1970s & 1980s.
