    Hi Gary, that is excellent !! How did you attain this ? Right now i am looking for a receiver and bolt to restore my mp40 to a presentable non-firing display. If you have any suggestions i would greatly appreciate it.

    Again, looking at yours makes my mouth water.

    rgds, Ty

    Hi Ty,

    This is a pre 86 Dealer Sample that I bought from a fellow dealer back in 1995. I don't recall who the importer was at the moment.
    It lived in CA from 1995 till 2005 so you were close for a while!


    Cheers
    Gary

    Hi Gary, you sure have a real beauty there. Fantastic example of an MP40. Not very many in this condition left. I'm jealous, the only non-bolt WWII guns I've got are an SVT-40 and my Garand. Enjoy that baby. By the way, what factory was that produced in? I have never seen "fxo" on a rifle.

    Hello,

    cos was the code for the Merz-Werke, Gebr. Merz of Frankfiurt am Main. fxo was the code for C.G. Haenel Waffen und Fahrrad Fabrik of Suhl and they were a subcontractor for this particular weapon. What I liked about it is the machined magazine well which was made for the earlier MP38 and then married to the later MP40 reciever so it is an example of a transitional MP38/40. Also it is not a matched weapon but rather a completely matching upper and a completely matching lower assembly married together.


    Cheers
    Gary
