    Hi Adi, it is not an MP40. I don't recognise it as anything German. I think it is a local Romanian gun, the Orita:

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,

    I had my doubts too, but the seller insisted it was an MP40.

    I invite the more experienced Romanian members to share their opinion.

    Now you could prove the seller wrong and maybe get it for cheaper It might not be an MP40, still looks good though

    If it ain't German, it ain't my cup of tea.

    I would rather buy 6 gas mask cans than that... thing. I see you are a gas mask guy, and I have a crush for German gas mask cans, so I think you can understand me.

    We all have our interests eh? I know where you are coming from with the gas mask cannisters, they are just great for so many things, especially displaying helmets

    Look at the pics posted gents, it's plainly an Orita. Doesn't matter, you'll never convince everyone.
