Question: will it be a similar price point as the GSG5?

or I could just read the other thread...

Has there been any thought about offering the MP40 in 9mm? I imagine such an option would spark interest in other crowds, too.

What if it was imported as a pistol like the Draco or the Mini Draco? I thought that pistols aren't subject to 922(r).

Just thinking out loud here since I would definitely love to own a 9mm MP40, reproduction or not.

Chirs,

Thanks for getting the stg44 stuff squared away and going for us. Do you know the time frame of when the mp40's will be imported? Expect them the same time next year July 2013 like the stg's?

Keep up the great work!!!

So what comes after the Mp40? Any ideas floating around?

Ppsh41 or a Thompson maybe?

What extension have you planned for the GSG-MP40 to have 16" barrel? Add a fake suppressor type tube? Or just stick out the barrel? The barrel length is an unfortunate problem since MP40 is such a nice little sub gun.

Also I hope you will have a pistol version (with locked closed stock) with the correct barrel length. That way some will at least have a correct looking MP40 as a pistol version. Also it would make the SBR route easier to do.
Link Posted: 9/1/2012 10:53:49 PM EST
I really hope they go the pistol with a locked stock route. The originals had a ten inch barrel.
A full 16" length barrel with or without a faux suppressor would be fugly IMO.
Link Posted: 9/2/2012 4:57:49 PM EST








I would like the rifle so I could form 1 it and make it a SBR. I won't buy the fixed stock pistol.

To be honest I would LOVE to have a .22lr PPSh-41 replica more so that the MP-40

Yeah, you don't want that Puma. Lots of issues. It requires a round with 1300 FPS at the muzzle, but it is picky with ammo. Only shot stingers for me. It also had some parts break regularly. There are a couple threads in the 10/22 section with this.

That’s a terribly inaccurate replica. GSG could do better than that.

"That’s a terribly inaccurate replica. GSG could do better than that."

+100 to that; GSG knows how to build replicas!

And also,

A drop-in rimfire conversion kit for HK93/V93/C93 owners

A 3/4-scale Garand or 1918 BAR or M14 or FAL in .22LR

And use the curved mags from the GSG5 for a .22LR Sterling replica!

And some rimmy bullpups too;

FAMAS replica
L85 replica
AUG replica

Lottsa possibilities with the GSG methods of a "firing system in a shell"

I just bought a GSG StG-44; putting aside $$$ for the GSG MP-40...and would buy a GSG FG-42 as well...

Back to the GSG MP-40...I'd prefer a long barrel w/folding stock...Correct MP-40 barrel thread protector and let the barrel itself stick out...

Yeah that looks like garbage, could have made a decent PPD-40 replica or even a M49, but even then they would probably still screw it up.

Will additional magazines be available for the MP-40?
Link Posted: 1/23/2013 7:47:48 AM EST
I've got a GSG-5 and an STG44. Soon as an MP40 is available I'll buy one of those too. (How's THAT for an informative post?:>)

Gonna be interesting to see what GSG comes up with for that. Also, we're going to give it a shot, but a pistol version with a dummy underfolding fixed stock is a long shot too as ATF may consider the design of the mag & magwell as a grip forward of the pistol grip....therefore AOW. We will see when we send it to FTB for testing.


As far as the straight mag, actually there is a curve option. Remember the 9mm mag is wider than needed for .22. So there is room for slight curvature inside the "9mm" mag body. Question is how many rounds? My guess would be 10 rounds cound be fit curved inside a staight 9mm sized mag body.

I used to have a West Hurley Thompson 1927A3 (.22). What they did to make it look decent is they offered a 10 round .22 mag that was actually a .22 magazine fit inside a straight Thompson .45 mag as a fuctional display mag. Then they offered a curved .22 mag (that looked nothing like an original) that held 30 rounds for plinking.

That said, that's what I would do, offer a replica straight "9mm" 10 rounder to get the curvature right for feeding and then offer with it an off the shelf curved 25 round GSG .22 mag for plinking. This way we'd have the best of both worlds.

So far as offering it as a pistol, the ATF has approved other fixed stock "pitsols" like this recently - PPS43C, TNW KP44, to name a few. I'd really like to see this offered as a pistol, cause a 16" barrel on a MP40 would look goofy IMO
Link Posted: 1/25/2013 11:29:18 AM EST
I agree, I would like to buy this as a pistol and then sbr it. I imagine that it will look funny with a 16" barrel.

Link Posted: 2/7/2013 10:17:39 AM EST
I'll buy one as soon as I can.
Link Posted: 2/7/2013 11:58:01 PM EST
I've got a GSG:

- AK-47
- STG-44
- 522SD
- 1911-22

I'll be adding the MP-40 to my above list, when they become available. Can't wait!

Cheers!

Unless Feinstein gets her way.

I am somewhat confused...In this thread, you state -

Why wouldn't the GSG MP40 in pistol configuration (and a 7-rd magazine) be legal in New York under the 2013 SAFE Act???

Why MP40 isn't "safe" under the NY SAFE act? Cuz this gun looks too evil. Kidding aside, they probably have some clause in the law to say guns with GSG guts but in a different shell would still be banned.

need an update on this. any news?

Sadly those of us in Kolorado could really use the *magazines* right NOW :( I've always wanted an MP40 and thought this would be ideal - never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that one would come so close and yet be so far out of reach. Sniffle.
