The Haenel MP 28/II was designed by Hugo Schmeisser in the late 1920s as an improvement on his earlier MP 18/I submachine gun. The MP 28/II followed a similar layout to the MP 18/I, but introduced several new features, such as a reconfigured magazine feed taking 20 or 32-round Schmeisser pattern box magazines instead of TM 08 "snail magazines" (this feature was later retrofitted to some examples of the MP 18/I), and a fire selector switch above the trigger which included a mechanical safety. The bolt and recoil spring were also redesigned, and an adjustable tangent rear sight was fitted in place of the MP 18/I's flip-up sight.
The MP 28/II was manufactured by C.G. Haenel of Suhl, and was adopted by the German border guard, the Waffen-SS, and was issued to certain rearguard sections of the Wehrmacht during the early stages of World War II to make up for shortages of the newer MP 40. It was also exported to several countries, including Belgium, Brazil, Bolivia, the Netherlands, and Portugal. The MP 28/II was succeeded by the MP 41.
