The MGP-15 is a submachine gun designed for issue to special forces made by SIMA-CEFAR,[5] updated with a longer barrel and other features. The name was changed from previous MGP models due to modifications, including a change to a barrel with a threaded muzzle, usually fitted with a screwed-on muzzle cap, that allows a suppressor to be quickly screwed on.[6]


Like all MGP submachine guns, the weapon can utilize Uzi submachine gun magazines.[6][7] A folding butt stock is provided, so arranged that with the butt folded along the right-hand side of the receiver the butt plate can act as a form of foregrip.[8]
