"Short to medium range submachine gun with high rate of fire and mobility. Best used in close quarters."
— In-game description

The Bearing 9 is a machine pistol featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It was introduced in the Operation Red Crow expansion pack and is available for use by both SAT Operators.


The Minebea PM-9 (also known as 9mm Machine Pistol in the Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) or as the M9) is a Japanese-made machine pistol manufactured by the Nippon Miniature Bearing Company, otherwise known as Minebea.

In-game, designated as the Bearing 9, this machine pistol has a high rate of fire and a rather large magazine capacity. Its recoil pattern is challenging to control as the horizontal recoil is quite unpredictable. Therefore, this weapon is best suited for close-range engagements, while anything above mid-range will require careful tap-firing.


  • High rate of fire
  • Good damage output


  • High and unpredictable recoil
  • Lacks grips

  • The Bearing 9 was originally classified as a Submachine Gun.
  • The weapon has two empty reload animations, one for using the iron sights and one for using any sight attachments on the weapon.
  • The odd designation is likely a reference to what Minebea stands for (Nippon Miniature Bearing Company).
