German Sport Guns, GSG, was at SHOT Show 2015 showing off what maybe their coolest product yet–an MP40 in the original 9mm caliber. GSG makes a MP40 now but it is in .22LR. That is mainly what they make, reproduction military arms in .22.
All of their guns are imported to the US by American Tactical Imports.
The new MP40 in 9mm has initial approval from the ATF at the time of the show. The representative at the booth said that they will be sending the ATF a working gun in April for final approval. Once that is obtained, they will begin production and importation. The guns will be sold without a shoulder stock (as pistols). If you file a Form 1 and get a stamp for an SBR, they will sell you the folding stock like the originals had.
These are not 100% true to the originals. The internals are different on the action. There was a bit of a language barrier with the rep at the booth, but I understood him to say that it had to be changed due to ease of full auto conversion. The original MP40 fired off an open bolt. The new Thompson’s had to be changed for similar reasons. Another change will be the addition of a safety.
If all goes well with the ATF, they hope to start shipment to the US later this year. MSRP is projected to be in the $550 range.
