You are welcome to order our exact zinc and aluminium MP40 Schmeisser replica with a plastic handle and detachable magazine. It was a submachine gun (in German called Machinenpistole) and it constituted an improved version of MP 38. It was used mostly on the Western and Eastern Front between 1940 and 1945. However, it is associated with not only World War II, but also Korean and Vietnam wars, to name but a few. MP40 Schmeisser was an automatic weapon (550 bullets per min), but it was also possible to control trigger pulls so as to perform single shots.
