Type 82 submachine gun - 9x18mm Makarov

The PM-63 (Polish: Pistolet maszynowy wz. 1963, lit. "submachine gun model 1963"), nicknamed RAK (Polish: Ręczny Automat Komandosów, lit. "Handheld Commando Automatic"), is a Polish submachine gun. The gun was produced by the Łucznik Arms Factory in Radom, Poland, and chambered in 9mm Makarov. It was used extensively by Polish Special Ops units and Airborne units, as well as special police divisions during the Cold War. 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 cloned and produced without license as the Type 82 submachine gun (Chinese: 82式冲锋枪). The Type 82 was manufactured by Factory 9726 in Guilin, Guangxi (also known as Guilin Xinghuo Machinery), and was reportedly cloned from PM-63 submachine guns captured in the Sino-Vietnamese War.

The PM-63 RAK and variants can be seen in the following films, television series, video games, and anime used by the following actors:

The PM-63 was not actually 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.
