    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    What was the purpose? Evaluation? Training? Or was there a plan to manufacture and use the weapon?

    Most likely an experiment to see if they could produce this weapon quicker and better than the ones they already were using. In a war, speed and quality is important.

    Most likely they didnt produce them because of the mag sticking down. Even the germans favored the ppsh over the Schmeisser.
