On FOX NEWS CHICAGO just now. The news reporter called it a "machine pistol."

I may not know much about guns, but it's just a 9mm pistol!

Stupid news reporters!

Those are semi-auto.

Stupid news reporter: "But it don't look no different!"

They did not catch the guy who did the latest shooting! So how do they know it was a tech 9? I saw the Police and some politician talking about it on the news and it seemed like a political move to already say that it was an assault weapon before they even know for sure!

Reporters' Intuition?

There could be over 800 crimes committed with handguns in the city and 2 with assault-type weapons and they'll scream for a ban of some kind.Idiots!

There is/was a full auto version. The original Swedish model was a submachine gun. However, the chances of the gangbangers having one of the original subs is pretty slim, I would guess.
I suspect it is another case of misnaming a semiautomatic firearm.

The "Tec-9" is not nor ever was a full auto firearm, nor can it be converted.

A previous variant, the KG9 was able to be converted and there was a prototype MP9 submachine pistol that never saw production.

npd23,
We're talking semantics now. Yes, according to strict terminology, you are correct. I was simply talking about the original forerunner of the TEC9, the KG9.

Yep. Externally they look similar, and one derived from the other, but they are definitely not the same gun.

That's interesting. IIRC, Manuel Noriega carried and used a full auto KG variant.
