Article about: Hi, Thats the first mp.40 that I have seen stamped like yours. I am used to seeing them the other way around. Is this a common thing? Also, it looks like you have a bfa on the end of the bar

    Hi,
    Thats the first mp.40 that I have seen stamped like yours. I am used to seeing them the other way around. Is this a common thing? Also, it looks like you have a bfa on the end of the barrel.... is that a real one or one of the copies that are made here in Jersey, Channel Islands. I hope yours is an original one. There is a guy here who makes repro ones as well as K.98 winter triggers, he takes them to Beltring and the such like and sells them in quantity to the dealers who I don't know if they know they are wrong or not...or if they even care. Anyway you are adding to your collection which is always a great feeling...keep it going.

    Hello Terry, Great collection you have there, and your Mp40 has arrived, cracking it's an early 5th variation only made by Steyr in 1943/44 and you don't see to many of them about. Great stuff, Jonathan.

    Hello again, I just spotted that there are 2 pages to this thread, not too clever in the computer dept. but the 5th variation does indeed have stamps/marking done differently. So Terry no fear it's a good one, so no one will be wearing your Mp40! Jonathan.

    Hello Terry, here's a couple of pictures (I hope) that show the differences, mine is the most common, the 4th variation. with the usual markings, the underside of the grip frame on yours should be different too. Also I can't spot it from the pictures of yours but some of the 5th variation did away with the telescopic spring and used a cut down Mg42 recoil spring instead. No doubt to save money and time, but this increased the rate of fire as well. Jonathan.
