American Tactical of Summerville, South Carolina & German Sport Guns of Ense-Höingen, Germany have teamed together and are excited to bring to the United States the very first reproduction of the original WWII MP-40 “Schmeisser” in 9mm.

Manufactured as a pistol with no stock, this replica classic firearm is the closest version of an MP-40 to be importable in decades!

While maintaining a close overall appearance to the original WWII firearm, the GSG-MP40P is manufactured with all new parts to meet the US regulation specs for importation. The GSG-MP40P is a newly manufactured pistol and is a replica in appearance only to the original MP-40. This pistol is not compatible with the original WWII MP-40 in parts or magazines.

The frame is constructed using Zamak 5, which is a zinc die-casting alloy commonly used in Europe due to its combination of strength, ductility, and fluidity

Comes from the factory with one 25-round magazine and a magazine-loading accessory. Additional Magazines are in stock and available for order.

American Tactical is currently in the Research & Development stage of creating a 922(r) compliant stock kit for those who want to SBR this pistol under NFA regulations, so stand by!
