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 email@example.com 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!
Below is where I will put any new information relating to the MP38/40/41 that I read on the web or hear from other enthousiastics. If you have anything interesting please let me know at info@mp40.
15-7-2015: The MP40 is not only a "collectors item" but also in use for criminal activities in Australia. Just check the flame surpressor on the MP40 (below)
28-06-2015: Very nice collection of MP38's and MP40's of Kevin Wheatcroft. Look at the 3th picture from above.
22-3-2015: Interesting "cross over" Steyr produced MP40. It features the specifics of a late Steyr produced MP40 like the red bakelit fore grip and the 2 sided barrel nut but it still has the earlier grip without rim (not the integrated Steyr grip). This type can be considered as rare. Aproximately 13000 have been produced.
