    The MP 40 was the most widely used Sub-Machine gun in the early war years by the Wehrmacht & SS units. Able to fire single shots or multiple round bursts it was a weapon to be reckoned with and was still in use up to the end of the war.

    SS-Unterscharf├╝hrer fires MP40 submachine gun, two spent cartridges from it appear in the upper right hand corner of the picture. Standard infantry weapons, such as the MP40, were used throughout the Waffen-SS.

    I kinda like the MP 40. Here is my heard. The top 5 are an MP 38 & 4 MP 40s - all different years of mfg.
    The bottom 4 are "new tube" guns with all original parts. These are my shooters.
