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!


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.


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.

07-03-2015: and new supply of MP40's and more

01-03-2015: Rare MP38 offered at Henrik's website http://www.raskantik.com/visprodukt.asp?id=4268&katId=NEWS
