The Šokac P1 was a Croatian submachine gun that was produced by Đuro Đaković Holdings.


The Šokac submachine gun was developed around 1991 to meet a requirement for domestically-produced small arms in the newly-independent Croatia. It was produced and used by Croatian paramilitary and militia forces during the Yugoslav Wars throughout the 1990s and into the early 2000s. About 6,830 were produced in total.[1]


The Šokac was a basic copy of the Soviet PPSh-41 submachine gun using a straight blowback action and a cheap stamped steel construction. It was chambered in the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge and fed from MP 40 magazines. The folding stock was taken directly from the Sa vz. 23 and the stock could only be folded with the magazine removed. As with the PPSh-41, the safety was forward of the trigger.[2][3]

A model with an integral suppressor, known as the P1S, was said to have been developed.



  • The Šokac was named after the Šokci, an ethnographic group of South Slavs mainly identified as Croatians.
