The KK-MPi 69 small-caliber submachine gun (its full name was Kleinkaliber-Maschinenpistole modell 69) was designed in GDR (East Germany) during late 1960s and mass-produced in 1970s and 1980s as a training weapon for NVA (East German army) recruits. Unlike most training small bore rifles, it was designed as a select-fire weapon.
Patterned externally after the Kalashnikov AKM assault rifle, which was produced in East Germany as MPi-KM, the KK-MPi 69 submachine gun uses simple blowback action and fires from closed bolt. It has an AK-type hammer-fired trigger and AK-type safety/selector lever on the right. Furniture is made from brown plastic, and a single stack, 15-round box magazine is mounted inside a shell of the 7.62x39mm 30-round AK magazine.
