The Pindad PM2 is a submachine gun based on the Pindad SS2, using a similar receiver (although changed to use 9×19mm ammunition), grip, and folding stock. It is designed to exceed the performance of the popular German-made Heckler & Koch MP5. It has a standard MIL-STD-1913 rail on top for optics and comes with a suppressor.

Specifically designed for Close Quarters Combat operations, the PM2 is marketed primarily for military special forces and police Anti-Terrorism teams. The PM2 meets the needs of urban warfare operations, with Pindad having developed non-lethal rubber bullets for the weapon.

There is currently no intention for the local government to purchase the weapon, however foreign buyers are interested in buying the firearm.
