Product Information

This is a Second World War, German MP40 submachine gun. The secret makers code "bnz" was only used on Steyr Daimler-Puch produced MP40s. In 1943 around 220,572  MP38s & MP40s manufactured by all makers. This example is correctly marked with Waffenamt code WaA623 and has the early slotted magazine port. The cherry Bakelite grips are in grear condition.

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 the SAS who would often it used in preference to other available weapons.  A fantastic example of the iconic WWII SMG.
