Welcome to the one and only website that is solely dedicated to the german Maschinenpistole mp40. This site’s purpose is to gather and spread information about this famous worldwar 2 submachinegun as well as get in contact with mp40 collectors and enthousiastics.

I have tried to be as careful as possible in writing down the information although I know a lot of information is still missing. If however you feel I’m giving the wrong information or if you have additional information please drop me an email info@mp40.nl and I will add or correct it. Any new information or photo's are very welcome as well off course! Although I enjoy investigating everything related to the mp40, I want to clearly state that I don't want to glorify war or the political system that developed these weapons in any way. Also I want to mention that owning and collecting these guns is subject to local laws and regulations.

Enjoy this website!

The first page about MP40 manuals contained a lot of mistakeson the website but this new page covers in detail all known MP38 and MP40 manuals.
