ZK-383 - 9x19mm. This is the base version with folding bipod and detachable barrel.

The ZK-383 is a submachine gun of Czechoslovakian origin. It was designed by the Kouck√Ĺ brothers in the Zbrojovka Brno weapon factory. Production started in 1938, mostly for export to South America (Venezuela and Bolivia). After Czechoslovakia was occupied by Germany, a number of ZK-383s were supplied to Bulgaria where it became their main SMG during World War II. The Waffen-SS also used it under the designation MP 383(t). After the war ended, production continued until 1966 (different sources also say that it was manufactured until 1948 and used until 1966). About 20,000 were manufactured.

The ZK-383 existed in three versions: standard, the police model ZK-383P that lacked the folding bipod and detachable barrel, and the post-war ZK-383H that had an underslung magazine instead of the left side attaching magazine on previous versions.
