    I have never seen anything like it before, maybe a prototype? You have a really special weapon there, how did you acquire it?
    Best Regards

    I have never seen an MP 43 that looks like that! Mine sure doesn't. This one shoots 9 mm parabellum? That's different, too.

    Hi,

    This is effectively an extremely rare FnaB 43 : Fabbrica Nazionale d'Armi, Brescia, made in Italy in 1943.Less than 5.000 are products, but all the SN fund are not under 5.000 and not over 5.999. a few hundred were furnished in italian RSI (Republica Social Italia) forces , the rest was delivered to the german wehrmach under MP 43(i) code.
    Cal. 9mm
    Use beretta magazins (20, 40 shots)
    After the ww2 most of this weapons were delivered to the algérian rebelion forces (FLN).
    Two terorists of the Italian "Red Brigade" were equiped with this MP when "Aldo Moro" was killed.
    Regards
    Carfin.

    Hi,

    The first serie delivered to the RSI italian forces looks like that (photo).
    The rest delivered to the german forces were produced with a larger trigger guard to use the gun with gloves and all italian markings were milled.

    All the guns Ihave in my collection are deact.

    Regards.

    Hi Klinger,

    The gun comes from a french officer who served in the algerian war.
