I would like your help with a question.

I am a weapons collector from the Netherlands and I collect snipers and long range weapon and DMR weapons. I have a decent collection but I'm looking for information:

Who can tell me which SubMachine Guns snipers use for backup and CQB?

I have an MP5 in my collection myself but was curious which unit uses it as a Sidearm or Submachine gun outside the sniper rifle. (I already have pictures of a unit from Australia.

I want to use this for a book. So if you got some photos that would be perfect. :love:

I really hope you guys can help me. :)

I think snipers with smgs sound really dumb. Akin to plate carriers and ghille suits. They don't really go together.

Some m4/mk18 rifle would be my guess. Mk25 sig.

Not being an operator, I can only speculate. If you are on a 2 way range as sniper and you find yourself needing to use a smg much less a handgun you've probably made quite a number of compounding bad decisions.

Lots of good info here:


MP-5, Swedish-K, Skorpion, Sterling, suppressed Sten, Welrod, CZ75, P38... depends on the era. And the unit. And the nationality. And the mission.

:)Would you please please share some pictures of it with an SMG and sniper? Just an picture is oké.
No. Not a chance.

First off, that would be a copyright violation.

Second, not going to cost our HMFIC @lowlight book sales by stealing his content and posting it here.

Third, historical/book research involves using (and often buying) books for that research. Not getting internet folks to post it.

You have got some great leads here. And I am sure more info will continue to flow in. But do do your book research the proper way. And don’t forget proper citations of this thread when doing your bibliography and end notes.

Here is a pretty good starting bibliography.

As long as you are on Amazon.... everything to the Left of Deep Black.

My friend Martin Pegler’s book is highly-recommended. For modern operational doctrine info Coughlins book is excellent. And McBride “A Rifleman went to War” is must read from a foundational sense.

Don’t forget to cite SH under research assistants.
