The weapon uses the 9 mm Parabellum cartridge and has a wide variety of possible attachments. The weapon can mount a silencer, grenade launching attachment, and a variety of muzzle compensators. The submachinegun also has a integral folding stock.

The submachinegun is made of stainless pressings and has an ambidextrous safety. The weapon fires from an open bolt but there is a civilian semi-automatic model that fires from a closed bolt. The standard police and tactical model can be fired in semi-automatic or fully automatic mode and has a rate of fire of 1000 rounds per minute. The weapon does not have a fire selector.
