    I wouldn't advise it though. Stress and age fractures in the barrel that you can't see would result in a catastrophic event, I am a Registered Firearms dealer, as well as a military dealer, and trust me when one of those go.....they go with a bang

    however it does look a very nice display piece

    fxo is for the manufacturer - C.G. Haenel, Suhl

    Great relic! Just what I'm looking for as well --- an mg42 would be up next.

    Wouldn't recommend shooting that mp40 though

    I guess you see that the black colour on the reciver has gone. Will I destroy it if I try to retain the colour again?

    You will never be able to re blue it. But if you spray it matt black it looks just as good I have several that I have found and it looks good on the wall 😅
