The Pistol Mitralieră model 1996 RATMIL (also called the RATMIL model 96) is a blowback operated, folding stock submachine gun chambered in 9mm Luger used by the Romanian gendarmes. Initially developed as the 9mm PM md. 96, the developer's name, back then RATMIL, was added to the name, in order to distinguish it from the Assault SMG, also called PM md. 96.
