F1 Submachine Gun - 9x19mm

The F1 submachine gun was designed at the Australian Lithgow Small Arms Factory in 1962. Originally known as the X-3 prototype, it appeared in 1962 as a possible replacement for the obsolete and aging, but reliable, Owen Submachine Gun. It was adopted as the F1 by the mid-sixties, and served well into the late eighties, when it was officially replaced by the 5.56mm F88 assault rifle, a license-made version of the Steyr AUG. The F1 is a simple, reliable, and was a popular weapon during its service life.

The F1 submachine gun is a blowback-operated, selective-fire weapon which fires from an open bolt. It uses a tubular receiver with a top-mounted magazine. The cocking handle is set at the left side of the weapon, and does not reciprocate when the gun is fired. Its slot is covered by a sliding dust cover. The weapon is made in a so-called in-line layout, and the front of the buttstock slides over the rear of the receiver and is fixed there by a special catch. For disassembly, the gun is unloaded, then the catch is pressed and buttstock pulled off the receiver toward the rear. Then, the bolt and return spring are removed. Sights are of a fixed type, and the weapon feeds from top-mounted Sterling SMG compatible 34 round magazines that are offset to the left. The rear sight can be folded for more comfortable carry. Unlike many other submachine guns, the F1 can be fitted with a standard rifle bayonet, which is attached to the right of the perforated barrel jacket.
