Bbl. 9 9/10”
Hooded fixed blade front sight, rear sight is windage drift adj. 2 Piece folding leaf. Of all the German WWII era SMGs, the MP40 may be the most iconic of them all. Its slow cyclic rate combined w/ decent sights & pleasant ergonomics make it as fun to operate as it is interesting to look at. It utilizes a very simplistic, yet incredibly smooth open bolt firing mechanism. The recoil system is typical of German over engineering consisting of a 3 piece telescoping rod w/ a captured spring that doubles as the connection point for the firing pin which slides inside of the bolt.
The safety mechanism is an extremely simple design which shares commonalties w/ other WWII era SMGs. It consists of a rearward notch that interfaces w/ the cocking handle holding the bolt to the rear. Manufactured in 1941 by Steyr-Daimler-Puch AG as designated by receiver code “bnz.41”. This MP40 utilizes a 3d generation mag. housing which includes the ribs for strength & square notch facing the shooter. Waffenamts appear on multiple parts as well as makers codes.
