The Portuguese FBP is a 9 mm submachine gun developed from a design first conceived in 1940 by Gonçalves Cardoso, an officer of artillery.
World War II halted development of the weapon, which resumed post WW2 and the gun was put into production in 1948.

The FBP SMG was produced by the Fábrica do Braço de Prata weapon factory at Lisbon, whose initials FBP gave the name to the weapon.
Selected for service as the m/948 in 1948, It utilized the collapsible wire stock of the American M3 submachine gun.
The FBP was primarily issued to officers and NCOs in the Armed Forces and security forces.
In service, it was used in combat in Angola, Portuguese Guinea, Mozambique, Portuguese India and Portuguese Timor.
It was eventually replaced in service by the 9 mm UZI.
