Product Information

A Second World War, German MP40 submachine gun. The secret makers code "FXO" was only used on C.G.Haenel . The date code "42" refers to 1942 as the year of manufacture. This example has lots of matching numbers and is fitted with rare aluminum painted grips and two sided barrel nut.

The MP 40 was an innovative design in both terms of manufacture and as a weapon of war. It was made using stamped steel and Bakelite parts and had a very clever folding stock arrangement making it an ideal compact weapon for the German Fallshrimjager (paratroops). The MP40 was issued widely throughout the German army with infantry divisions and SS units receiving them first in 1940, and was only in production from 1940 to 1945. It was also a favourite with Allied troops and was a prized trophy, often it would be used in preference to other available weapons if captured. Deactivated to current specifications. A fantastic example of the iconic WWII SMG.
