The Saab Bofors CBJ-MS was first shown in August 2000. It is an unusual weapon in several respects, not least because it is meant to fulfill the roles of PDW, assault rifle and, with the addition of a proprietary bipod and 100-round drum magazine, light support weapon. The gun features a top-mounted Picatinny rail for mounting optics, a two-stage trigger for semi-and full automatic fire, a collapsing wire stock, a grip safety, a threaded barrel, and a hollow foregrip which can be used to hold a spare magazine.
