Product Information

The Second World War German MP40 submachine gun is without doubt one of the most iconic and instantly recognisable weapons of WW2. Its innovative design and reliability made it an excellent weapon. Originally conceived for use by airborne troops or Fallschirmjäger, with a clever folding stock making it compact and easy to carry whilst parachuting, they became issued widely throughout the German Wehrmacht to all branches of the armed forces. This example was made in 1943 by Steyr (bnz) and still retains many original parts. Steyr made MP40s were stamped with the Waffen acceptance WaA623 which can be seen on all major component parts of this gun.This example has two very interesting feature. The first being the very rare late war wooden grips. Very few are known to exist. These grips are well worn and fit perfectly. The second is the over stamped number 7 in the serial numbers on the barrel and receiver. During production the serial number was incorrectly applied as 6008, the mistake was spotted and the 8 over stamped with a 7. Proof that mistakes were made and corrected. 1943 saw the tide turning for the Nazis as the Russian and African campaigns were costing many German lives and Allied bombing was crippling German infracture and weapons production. 

Deactivated to current specifications with moving parts and the ability to be cocked back in the safety position and released under spring pressure from the original telescope plunger. Included in an original 1942 dated magazine and leather sling.
