Hi,

Lots of people still asking about the MP-40. I've been putting it in these threads but everyone is still asking so here you go:

The MP-40 has always been planned to follow the STG in the timeline. Since day one we have said, STG first, MP-40 second.

Until full production is up and running on the STG and distribution begins, GSG will not begin any development on the MP-40. This is because creating a new gun is ridiculously expensive. Like the STG, ATI & GSG have already locked down the rights to the gun with our partnership with Schmeisser. Just like the STG, ATI will own the overall rights to the gun by owning the equipment it is made on. But, until the STG project becomes just another day at the factory for GSG, they have all their people focused on the STG development so it is 100%. After that, then the MP-40 officially goies into development, which is why we don't expect to have one for testing untill 2013 some time.

Gun development is not fast, trust me, I do all our government end stuff here. It will exist, but not tomorrow, not next week or even this year. But it will eventually. The STG will be here at LATEST by this summer. Thats already set, so don't get worried about that. But keep this thread around for this info.

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.

Anything over .22lr caliber would not meet the 'sporting purposes' criteria for importable firearms. So, we'd have to bring in a heavily modified and neutered version only in that case. Then, if you wanted something as simple as Hi-Cap on the mag, the gun would have to be 922(r ) compliant. This would require actually manufacturing tooling here in the US to make the correct parts etc. Not cost effective. We expect the retail price on the .22 to be between $450 & $500.

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?

Development wise, estimate would be early 2014 at best guess right now. Figure time frame: STG was started in development in Jan 2011, hit the market in July 2012. So that's....19 months.

We haven't gotten that far yet. Thompson isn't going to happen though unless the royalties wanted by Kahr Arms go waaaaay down.

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.

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.

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

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"
