German W.W.II MP-40

The MP-40 was the standard German 9mm submachine gun of W.W.II.

It was the first firearm of its type to use "modern" production techniques such as the use of pressed steel and use of synthetic materials instead of wood. It was the first gun to have a legitimate folding stock. The MP-40 became synonymous with the German Blitzkrieg. The design and manufacture of the STEN by the British was inspired by the appearance of this utilitarian gun. While out of production for over 50 years it has received wide exposure in war movies during that time and is one of the most recognized and popular submachine guns of its type. Our 80% receiver is machined from 1026 steel tubing and closely duplicates the original.

Special note on MP-40:

It is not legal to finish this receiver into a machine gun without the proper license. You can make a non-firearm (DEWAT, blank gun). You do not need a Federal manufacturers license to make a legal type firearm (semi-auto, single-shot) for your own use as long as it is not for resale. Please note also that the ATF has guidelines regarding the possession of parts sets and unfinished receivers for tube-style SMG's. Contact ATF for guidelines for manufacture of legal semi-auto rifles or blank firing devices.
