The AGM-1 is a bullpup, semi-automatic carbine produced in Italy.[1] The carbine is readily convertible from 9×19mm Parabellum to .45 ACP as well as .22 Long Rifle. It features a set trigger and a heavy, target-type barrel.[1] The magazines for the 9×19mm Parabellum variant are interchangeable with the Browning Hi-Power pistol.[1]
