Overview[edit | edit source]
Allegedly designed by a Lebanese combat veteran, the SerLea ACE is a double-barreled, blowback-operated, magazine-fed open bolt fired submachine gun chambered in the 9×19mm Parabellum round. The weapon has twin barrels, twin magazines, and twin bolts, with a ratchet type synchronizing device with a sear/cam that holds the moving bolt after firing the round, releasing instantly the rival bolt vice versa to turn the weapon into a single high rate of fire submachine gun. The weapon may fire one barrel at a time only if one magazine is inserted. The barrels come with cooling fins and a compensator in the muzzle. Ejection ports are on both sides making the SerLea an ambidextrous weapon. Cocking handle is at the rear behind the pistol grip cocking both bolts at the same time. The weapon also has a vertical foregrip between the barrels for recoil handling.
The SerLea was allegedly marketed to the Los Angeles Police Department but saw no sales. A blank-firing prototype was loaned out for movie work.
