Earlier this year we reviewed the German Sport Gun MP40 imported by American Tactical (ATI). It’s fun to shoot and a great tribute to WWII, but, as we said in the review, it would be really fun with an authentic-looking collapsible stock.
American Tactical stepped up to the plate, and we got a chance to check out their new product at this year’s NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.
The MP40 collapsible stock is constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum right here in the USA. The entire stock, including the butt plate, folds with the push of a button.
Installation is simple, though it requires the use of a Dremel. Users must first drill out the washers located at the rear of the MP40 then install the stock using a roll pin. The American Tactical rep told us the kit comes with instructions, and the company has also published an instructional video.
As we said in our review, the MP40’s weight makes the gun difficult to shoot for extended periods of time, so American Tactical’s new product can provide a more comfortable shooting experience.
The stock kit starts at $249.95, but it also includes a cold rolled steel magazine floor plate with a parkerized finish, a 4140 steel muzzle adapter with a ½ X 36 thread pitch, and a HDPR polyethylene thermoplastic magazine follower.
9mm AR-15 Adapter
American Tactical also featured their new 9mm AR-15 adapter. The kit fits into standard AR-15 lower receivers and uses Glock style double-stack magazines. The upper receiver, barrel, and bolt obviously have to be replaced as well, but American Tactical’s new product allows shooters to use their existing AR-15 lower if they want to move to a pistol-caliber carbine.
The 9mm adapter starts at $169.95 and includes a ten-round magazine. Visit AmericanTactical.us to learn more.
