MP-40 (1:1)
The iconic submachine gun of the Wehrmacht!
About this creation
This redesign of my earlier MP-40 is much more accurate to the historic weapon, featuring improved dimensions and proportions; my older version was large, clunky, and covered with studs. My new model features a removeable magazine (which now fits INTO the magazine well, unlike on my older version), a pull-back, spring-loaded trigger, a sliding and locking bolt, and, of course, the Maschinenpistole 1940's special folding stock, which I've thickened a little bit to improve its durability.

[Overall Dimensions: 25" long (stock folded), ~32.5" long (stock extended), 2.5" wide, and 11.75" from top of sights to bottom of magazine.] Total weight: 1.7 lbs. First completed around June 15, 2011; deconstructed.









(Note: The best way I've found to keep the stock folded underneath the receiver is to attach a 1 x 6 plate to the latter; the ends of the plate overhang the sides of the stock-end and keep the assembly folded.)










My assembled German weapons collection (that is, before I constructed my Karabiner 98k recently).


Thanks for looking!

Quoting Centurion Cone This is really cool but could you make some shooting guns? please? :)
No, thanks; aesthetics and realism are my top priorities when building guns. My models could never function/operate as realistically as they look, and I am unwilling to sacrifice their visual advantages to add a few "working" features. Also, there are several other builders out there who do an amazing job with the functional weaponry, so I'll leave that to them for now.

Nice! This one is more accurate than any other MP-40 I've seen. Most people make it way too small.

Quoting Hawx 163 when will you make a gewher 43?
Well, until recently, I was planning on building the Gewehr '43 as the German counterpart to the M1 Garand in my WWII weapons collection, but the gun didn't see very widespread use during the war, and is not as well-known as the Mauser 98k, which is now the rifle I'm planning to build. If I build the semiautomatic Gewehr, it might be a ways down the road...Thanks for your interest! ~Cole
