The Patria submachine gun (Pistola Ametralladora Patria) is a submachine gun of Argentine origin.

It was developed by Major Luis Ricardo Dávila of the Argentine Air Force, and was protected by national Argentine patent 220494/5/6/7. The weapon is a close copy of the Ingram MAC-10 and features a cooling jacket/barrel extension much like the South African BXP.[1]
