MP40 sub-machine gun, Germany 1940


Reproduction of a submachine gun, made of metal and plastic, with simulated loading and firing mechanism, removable magazine and adjustable leather belt.

The MP40 (Maschinenpistole 40) was designed by Heinrich Vollmer in 1940, with the aim of equipping German soldiers with an assault weapon. It used magazines of 32 cartridges of 9mm and its effective range was about 100-150 meters. It was a very reliable weapon and it was very economical to manufacture. It had a relatively weak recoil even when firing in bursts, due to its low rate of fire; this allowed it to be more precise for the close range (urban areas, forests, etc.) than other submachine guns of that same period, but it was less effective in the open areas because of its limited reach; this was one of the reasons that motivated the design of the Stg-44, the predecessor of modern assault rifles.

This automatic submachine gun was widely used by the Nazi Germany troops (usually by officers, mechanized infantry and paratroopers) during the Second World War, a global military conflict that occurred between 1939 and 1945, in which most of the nations of the world were involved, including all the great powers, grouped in two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis Powers. It was the greatest war in history, in which these great contenders applied all their economic, military and scientific capacity to the service of the war effort, erasing the distinction between civil and military resources.

By the end of the war approximately 1.047.000 submachine guns had been manufactured, thousands of them were captured by the Red Army. It was also involved in the Indochina conflict by the French army and later in the Korean and Vietnam wars.

    I got a luger from denix and was very pleased with it so I had high hopes for this, yet it did not reach my expectations. The mag is a nightmare to load, the mag release must have been stripped or something cuz it just popped right out and will not stay, and the little button on the sling just popped right out as well. Other than that it has a nice weight to it, the bolt is pretty satisfying to pull down and send forward, the metal seems a nice quality, and is a pretty neat thing to have.

    I bought this replica and I was amazed by the quality. Unbeknownst to me many years back I got a revolver not knowing it was from Denix and I loved it to death. Later when I got this MP40 I linked the dots and looked it up and saw it was from Denix. Both the revolver and this MP40 were crafted in an amazing way with great care to detail, good weight and metal. I would highly recommend the amazing products from Denix. Godspeed.
