The Zastava M92 is one of the derivatives of the popular M70 rifle and maybe one of the most "controversial" weapons ever made by Zastava Arms. The weapon is considered by the most as a carbine, by many as a submachinegun and it is even imported as pistol(To match US laws). It was designed by Crvena Zastava(Now Zastava Arms) as a submachinegun and it is used by many professionals in this role even nowadays.After the war in the Balkans, the rifle was widely exported in several countries, where its initial designation changed to "carbine"(Mainly because of the caliber it is chambered in).Nowadays it is still manufactured and considered by Zastava Arms as a submachinegun.
