I just have to start by saying that the MP40 was the first machine gun I ever shot. I was about fourteen when I got to shoot it, and I immediately fell in love—and really what’s not to love here?
It’s got good balance and feel, it has a good rate of fire, it’s simple, and lastly it works. The thing is just a workhorse of a machine gun. I honestly have no idea how many were produced, but if it’s not in the millions I’d really be surprised. When you picture a WWII German soldier, you picture one of two things: a K98 or an MP40.
I mentioned on the video that my MP40 is a tube gun. Y’all are probably wondering what that is. Well, a tube gun is basically built on a non-original receiver. You take a kit and a new manufactured receiver and make an MP40, a Sterling, or a Sten, etc. Of hgh dopa 250 capsules course, if you make it after ‘86, it’s a post sample, but there are quite a few transferable tube guns. They don’t command the same, stupid high, price as an original gun, but they run just as well. In fact, you are probably better off using a tube gun as a shooter than an original. The reason is that if you break a part on a matching gun, you cry. It is no longer matching at that point. Its value and, to my mind, part of its history is gone.
Now, on a tube gun parts can be swapped in and out, and the value and history of the gun isn’t changed. As a matter of fact, tube guns may be made to a higher standard than what can be found in some military production lines.
So that’s a little about the MP40 and the one I have in particular. I hope y’all dig the video.
