8-7-2012: To my surprise I found out by coincidence that the Army Museum in Delft, the Netherlands is keeper of a collection of 46 MP40's. After contacting them I recently received serial information of 42 MP's of this collection, which is great and will help to further investigate the output of the manufacturers of the MP40. After adding these serial number to my list I will publish it here again. Please let me know if you want to recieve the list in other formats than PDF so you can use it to do your own data mining.
30-6-2012: Interesting authentic video footage (at 0:13) of MP40's being test fired by the elite division "Gross Deutschland":
12-6-2012: I have been working on a new page about the "Prototypes". I'm describing the M.K.36,III, the EMP36, The MP38 (L), a prototype of the MP38 and a MP40 prototype made by Merz Werke. Please geive me your feedback and let me know if you have more information on prototypes of the MP38, 40 and 41. firstname.lastname@example.org

9-4-2012: Drill Sgt. Gunny comes to a nasty conclusion which we need not necessarily have to agree with.................................... The "Chopper" VS the "Schmeisser"

4-3-2012: Interesting link where you can find some e-book downloads and digital articles of MP40 related books. Most of them in Russian but also some in English. Otherwise nice to watch the pictures. Unfortunately not all links seem to work.
26-2-2012: For the collectors under us who have $ 95,000 laying around there is this fantastic opportunity. A MP40/I. Currently I have identified 6 MP40/I. 2 in the USA, 1 in the UK, 2 in France and 1 in Austria. Probably there are a few more. It's a mystery why the MP40/I was on the main regulation D 97 + "equipmentlist (Vorschrift D 97+ "gerätliste") since it was issued in very limited quantities. The MP40/I was equiped with the exact same dual magazine system as the MP3008 prototype. A few mp40's from different factories (different codes) were rebuild and equiped with the dual magazine feeding system. The MP40/I was never newly (of factory) produced. This MP40/I is also featuring in Frank Iannamico "Blitzkrieg". It's currently offered for sale at this website together with some MG's.

5-2-2012: Interesting picture (to the right) found on the internet that shows a painted white MP38 as well as the pouches. The MP38 is equiped with the early safety strap. It shows that there are more versions of this safety strap since some are attached to the barrel and barrel protector other are attached to the receiver muzzle. Most of them seem to be improvised in the field and not manufactured.
