The TEC 9 is a cheap open-bolt handgun manufactured in the United States between 1980 to 1994 by Intratec. It is based on the Carl-Gustav M/45 submachine gun, more commonly known as the "Swedish K". Originally it was designed as a low-cost alternative to the M/45, but never found a military market. Not wanting to abandon the idea, Intratec put semi-automatic versions onto the civilian market. It gained infamy after criminals found the open-bolt design to be easily convertible to be fully automatic.
In the GTA III Era games, the TEC 9 fires in a very slow rate of fire, holding 50 shots in the magazine. It is commonly used by gangs in Vice City, Los Santos, and Liberty City. When the Hitman skill level is reached, the TEC 9 can be dual-wielded.
