Stats / Data
The Vigneron was a submachine gun manufactured in Belgium during the 1950s. It was chambered for the the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge, and was used by the Belgian Army until the 1980s.
After World War II, the Belgian Army was largely equipped with a mixture of British and American guns. The Belgian army wanted to replace these weapons with modern designs, preferably designs of Belgian origin. Several designs were submitted to the Belgian army, and by the late 1940's the army would hold submachine gun trials. Among the designs tested were the Imperia (a modified/improved STEN gun), the RAN (a design from Repousmetal S.A.), numerous prototypes from FN, and the first model of what would become the Vigneron.
The original Vigneron submachine gun was designed by a retired Belgian army Colonel, Georges Vigneron. The weapon featured a simple blowback design, and was made out of stamped sheet metal and a plastic grip frame. It used the standard 9×19mm NATO cartridge, feeding from a 32-round double-column single-feed box magazine. The gun was designed with a long 302mm barrel, which featured a compensator and cooling fins. The design of the compensator and the cooling fins was reminiscent of the Thompson submachine gun, which isn't all that surprising given that the Thompson was one of the many American weapons in use with the Belgian military at the time. The barrel of the Vigneron was replaceable, and was held in place with a knurled nut. One of the Vigneron's primary design faults was that the barrel could be fitted upside down, and despite this being a known problem, the fault was never addressed. A hinged dust cover was fitted to seal up the gun when not in use, and was designed to automatically open up when the bolt was cocked.
The Vigneron's design was influenced by a number of successful WW2 designs. In addition to the compensator and barrel cooling fins being derived from the Thompson, the Vigneron's wire-frame stock resembled the stock of the American M3 Grease Gun, the bolt was nearly identical to that of the British STEN gun, and the magazines drew heavy inspiration from those used in the German MP40.
The original model of the Vigneron, designated the M1, was adopted by the Belgian army in 1952. The first series of Vignerons were manufactured by the Societe Anonyme Precision Liegeoise in Herstal, Belgium. Some parts were subcontracted out to the State Arsenal at Rocourt in Liège, who eventually began making complete guns. Other Vignerons were fabricated by the company Ateliers de Fabrications Electriques et Metalliques or AFEM in Brussels. Some time after the adoption of the M1, an improved model began to be produced. This updated model, the M2, featured a number of improvements. These included the addition of a protector for the front sight, a stronger spring for the dust cover, and a modification to the rear sight.

She claims to disdain scale model kits and the like and feels that only the real thing - be it cars or planes - are more fun, but due to difficulties in acquiring the actual article, she secretly makes models of them out of metal.
