Kotlas automatic carbine

A few years after the development of the Netsch self-loading carbine in 1919, another Czechoslovakian automatic carbine appeared. This was designed by Maj. Kotlas in 1922 and was tested by the Czech Army, but not adopted. Although reportedly not a submachine gun, it had the characteristics of an SMG-type weapon and was chambered in a pistol caliber.
