Grease gunEdit

I've heard from people who've played the demo at QuakeCon that the 9mm SMG is an M3 Grease Gun. 20:33, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Grease Gun is a .45 SMG. Nitty Tok. 20:35, August 28, 2010 (UTC)
I thought a grease gun was a device used by mechanics to apply automotive grease (such as in a lube/oil/filter job). :P --Kris mailbox 21:53, August 28, 2010 (UTC)
That's how it got the nickname, from the appearance. Anyway it is plausible, as Grease Gun was in 9mm too. 22:33, August 29, 2010 (UTC)
The M3 Grease Gun was designed to fire .45 ACP, but it came with a conversion kit to fire 9mm ammunition.Grand Cookie 09:20, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

Good Find Edit

very good job,i figured as there was a 9mm Browning Hi Power there would be a submachine gun,other weapons can be found here

9mm Pistol or this puppy? Edit

I just got the game today and I found and repaired one of these out of the doc's place. At first I immediately replaced my 9mm pistol with it, but now I have to wonder: Should I switch back to a 9mm pistol? For starters, the pistol does more damage per shot. I'm sure the SMGs rate of fire makes up for that, though. The big problem here is the fact that this weapon is not really all that common. I haven't found a second one yet, and the one I have is eventually going to break. The 9mm pistols are common and very easy to find and keep repaired, and what's more, the pistols can be modded. Still, I can't quite decide which one I should focus on keeping. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Depends. If you're trying to take on a group at close-medium range, the SMG is far superior. By contrast killing single enemies at medium-long range is easier with the pistol. Just have 'em both. They share ammo. {{SUBST:Signatures/YuriKaslov}} 02:54, December 24, 2010 (UTC)

About the note section.. Edit

This weapon DOES have a "slide" (or more correctly, a cocking handle) that moves on the side of the weapon; it is the crank on the right side of the lower reciever, just behind the magazine well. A video of the M3 (not M3A1) detailing this:

This rusty thing? Edit

In Fallout 2 we got cool guns like the P90c, MP9, G11, City-Killer, etc, but in New Vegas, why is it that the only 9mm submachine gun is a vintage World-War 2 rusty piece of shit?Samiam22 07:47, April 9, 2011 (UTC)

No one appreciates the classics anymore. But after 200 years, there isn't much that wouldn't be rusty. Great Mara 09:23, April 9, 2011 (UTC)
