Produced in Germany from 1963 to 1987 these high-quality guns were widely exported and used officially by German police forces, the Mexican navy and the Portuguese Navy. U.S. Navy SEALs also used the MPL (including the shorter barrelled “MPK” version) in Vietnam.
Whilst the gun is a conventional blowback design, the bolt is cleverly placed above the barrel, permitting a shorter overall length. A selective fire switch is also on the left side of the receiver, behind the trigger.
