German WWII Replica MP-40 Cap Plug-Firing Submachine Gun by MGC Japan - Near Mint Condition w/ Extra Magazine & Carry Case

Item Description

Vintage Replica Item: Only One Set Available. This is a fantastic extremely high quality German WWII Maschinenpistole 40 / MP 40 "Plug Fire" replica gun, made by the well-known Model Gun Corporation (MGC) of Japan. This is, by far, one of the absolute best examples of one of these MGC MP40s we have ever had the pleasure of offering! It appears to have never been fired, or handled very much at all! Comes with reproduction Leather Mp-40 Sling, Extra MGC-68 Magazine, and Reproduction MP-40 Gun Case.

The finish on this replica is astounding. The faux bakelite plastic furniture is not cracked or broken anywhere. Only showing some scuffs where the folding stock rubbed against it. Unlike current replicas, the MGC has a steel receiver, frame, stock, etc! The only portion that is pot metal was the pressure-bearing pieces, such as the barrel and trunnion, as per Japanese law at the time.

These are incredible replicas that are almost superior to a dummy gun made from an original MP-40 Parts Kit, which generally is welded. These models disassemble just like the originals. One can cock the bolt with the charging handle, pull the trigger, and the bolt slams forward! Unlike a much more expensive dummy gun that has none, if any, moveable parts. On an MGC, everything works!

These work with replica "cartridges”, which have small caps "plugged" into the front of them, which are then detonated by the replica bolt. These were ejected like real spent cartridges, and could be reloaded with additional caps. Please note that this example may or may not function with caps. We have no way to test and do not guaranty plug fire functionality.

This example does not have a serial number on the barrel indicating that it is an earlier import. The back of the receiver is marked MP40 / MGC 68 which we believe represents the year of manufacture as 1968.

Other than that, this is a very nice replica and feels almost the same as the real thing! Great for reenactors and collectors alike.

The MP 40 (Maschinenpistole 40) is a submachine gun chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge. It was developed in Germany and used extensively by the Axis powers during World War II.

Designed in 1938 by Heinrich Vollmer with inspiration from its predecessor the MP 38, it was heavily used by infantrymen (particularly platoon and squad leaders), and by paratroopers, on the Eastern and Western Fronts as well as armoured fighting vehicle crews. Its advanced and modern features made it a favorite among soldiers and popular in countries from various parts of the world after the war. It was often called "Schmeisser" by the Allies, after Hugo Schmeisser, who designed the MP 18, although he was not involved in the design or production of the MP40. The weapon's other variants included the MP 40/I and the MP 41. From 1940 to 1945, an estimated 1.1 million were produced by Erma Werke.
