Original German WWII Replica MP 40 Cap Plug Firing Submachine Gun by MGC Japan

Item Description

Vintage Replica Item: Only One 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. 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. Sadly the plugs and caps have all been lost, probably long ago somewhere in a backyard. 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.

This replica has definitely been used extensively and the condition shows. Almost all of the original finish is gone from the metal portions and the plastic type material has some rub marks in a few places and has some play in the movement, it just needs to be tightened back up. 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.
