Nice gun to have in a collection.
this is the one that allied commandos feared the most, the so-called Schmeisser Machine Pistol. it was powerful, accurate for it's type and ranged much farther than the thompson smg or the brit sten gun. you should read the novel, Where Eagles Dare, and see the movie too. it is by Alistair MacClean and is base on a true story of a British Commando raid on the Schloss Adler in 1943. the Castle of the Eagles was the headquarters for the Gestapo in Bavaria. it is a real place and is one of the most beautiful of the German type of castles built during the renaissance. it was burned to the ground by the british commandos in the raid, but has since been completely restored. the SS soldiers at the castle were all armed with the MP 40 Schmeisser.
No this is an MP-40. If ya want to see a M3 Grase Gun google it.lol
both are German guns right? thats prob what threw me off.
