SED Maschinenpistole

The SED machine pistol was designed by Rolf Ziegenhahn, a gunsmith from Suhl, then part of the East German DDR. It was a blowback-operated, select-fire weapon with a forward grip that could hold a spare magazine. It was intended to be presented at the ninth German Socialist Party Conference in 1976. Made only as a prototype, the SED was never used by East German military or security forces and probably suffered the same drawbacks as the Stechkin APS.
