The 5.8×21mm cartridge is a Chinese armor-piercing firearm cartridge.

The cartridge was designed for replacements of 7.62×25mm Tokarev–chambered small arms for the People's Liberation Army that would offer a wound as large as a standard 9×19mm Parabellum round.[3] This round is offered in both a standard, and subsonic version.[1] Both the QSZ-92 pistol and the QCW-05 Type 05 submachine gun are produced in this caliber as well as 9×19mm Parabellum.[4][5]
