The MP-7 is CAL's answer to the Picon P-90, itself a compact weapon with a retractable stock and a folding vertical grip. The MP-7; however is chambered for the 4.6x30mm cartridge, a specially designed, armour-piercing round with a muzzle velocity nearly as high as that of many modern rifles. This ammunition is unique among submachine guns in that the bullet is made almost entirely of a hardened steel penetrator instead of softer brass or lead.

The MP-7A1 allows a conventional 20-round or 40-round box magazine to be fitted within the pistol grip (the former being comparable in size to a 15-round 9 mm magazine, while the latter compares to a 30-round 9 mm magazine). The weapon features an ambidextrous fire-select lever and rear cocking grip. It has an extendable stock and a folding front grip; it can be fired either one-handed or two-handed. It is compact and light using polymers in its construction.

The MP-7 also has rails that allows the users to attach any accessory they wish to use.

The MP-7 is available in two variants: the MP-7A1 (4.6mm) and the MP-7A2 (5.7mm). The MP-7A2 (uses 15- or 30-round magazines) was developed at the request of the Colonial Military who wanted a compact weapon for issue to pilots, vehicle crews and special forces units and chambered in the standard 5.7mm round.
