Its unique cam recoil mitigation mechanism reduces recoil significantly with delayed blowback operation for accurate and controlled firing. The retractable buttstock allows CPW to be handled and carried like a conventional pistol for easy concealment for law enforcement and security forces. stengg.com/en
