What was that..? You need to use some Red Army types as bad guys for your James Bond: 007 RPG? Well, here’s their latest subgun/PDW, the QCW-05 in their proprietory 5.8x21mm DAP92 cartridge (their answer to the 5.7x28mm):


The QCW-05 stands for “Silenced Assault Gun, 2005” and there is a 9mm version, the JS-9. The weapon uses a split magazine that has two staggered ammunition tracks to crowd 50 rounds of 5.8mm into it; the JS-9 uses standard 30 round H&K MP5 magazines. The round is a 43-grain steel-core bullet moving at 1500 fps (with the suppressor) with an energy in the low 9mm range. A simple peep sight on the bullpup’s carrying handle works adequately, and the charging handle is protected by the carrying handle, as well.

PM: +1   S/R: 2/10   AMMO: 50   DC: E/H   CLOS: 0-8   LONG: 20-60   CON: n/a   JAM: 96+   RL: 2   COST: $16,000

GM INFORMATION: Without the suppressor, the DC is +1 for both ratings, CLOS 0-9, CON +4. The JS-9 follows:

PM: +1   S/R: 2/10   AMMO: 30   DC: E/H   CLOS: 0-9   LONG: 25-65   CON: n/a JAM: 99+   RL: 2

The JS-9 gains the same bump in DC and CON as the QCW-05 when the suppressor is removed.


QSZ-92/CF-98/QSW-06 “Silenced” Pistol

There are several versions of this pistol in the Chinese 5.8x21mm or 9mm Luger cartridge in service since the mid-90s. It is a full-size service pistol, usually issued with a suppressor. They look, for the most part, very similar.


In 5.8mm, it has a 20 round capacity, in the 9mm versions 15, and uses a rotating lock breech short recoil system that provides fairly low recoil impulse. The controls are easy to reach and use and ergonomics are surprisingly good, save for a very long double action trigger pull. They have a relatively low service life on their barrels, compared to service pistols like the American’s Beretta M9, or the Glock 17 with an expected use of about 10,000 rounds. They are a popular import weapon to Canada.

PM: 0   S/R: 3   AMMO: 15/20   DC: E/F   CLOS: 0-8   LONG: 12-18   CON: +1   JAM: 98+   RL: 1   COST: $600

GM INFORMATION: The second rating on the AMMO and DC is for the 9mm version.
