Barrel replaced by “cos” in 1942.

This is a very fine example of an original WWII German MP40 Submachine gun as used by all German forces. These MP40 SMGs were highly prized as war trophies even during WWII and are even more desirable today and are probably the most sought-after WWII SMGs. They are called a “Schmeisser” or Machine Pistol, which stems from the model designation of Machine Pistole, while in reality the MP40 is a true submachine gun, firing from an open bolt using the 9mm Parabellum round, same as the Luger pistol.
