ATI/GSG MP-40 Pricing and Shipping Estimate

gsg-mp-40

American Tactical Imports (ATI) showed off their sweet looking all metal .22LR version of the German MP-40 submachine gun a few SHOT Shows ago with different shipping dates every year. Well the reps at ATI confirmed today that their MP-40 will be shipping this summer with an MSRP of $539.95 (note the GSG STG-44 retails at $499.95). It will come in a wood crate just like the STG-44 as well.

    Forget the .22 make a 9mm

    • Frosty_The_White_Man

      Would it be that difficult to manufacture MP40s & Grease Guns in centerfire calibers? They’re both stamped guns…

      • Jeff Smith

        I may be wrong (someone please correct me if I am), but I think manufacturing it in 9mm (or anything other than .22) would prevent it from being imported into the US.

        • Lt Dan

          You are correct. No .22 = no import. Besides if it was made for 9mm the cost would jump to the ceiling and people would bellyache about that too.

          • Martin M

            The cost is already on the high side. On a historical note, the MP-40 cost 60RM to manufacture, which was equivalent to about $24. Adjusted for inflation, that was about $386 in 2012 money. Of course, when you made just over a million of them (Mp-38 & 40) you certainly have the economy of scale.

          • Lt Dan

            Using Nazi Germany’s wartime production model to calculate cost really does not translate to 2014 USA and Europe.
            But you’re right, slave labor does keep the cost down.

      • Eric S

        Not difficult to make, but making a profit is another story. I think the SSD replicas ones go for about $3k US if you could get one imported.

  • Rich Guy

    Make it in 9mm, lose the stupid sight rail, loose all plastic unless is for the grips and that has to be real bakelite, profit.

    • Duray

      First sentence says “all metal.” Sight rail appears removable. Chill. Count your blessings.

      • Martin M

        It’s odd because it LOOKS PLASTIC. I think it’s the finish. It doesn’t looked blued, nor does it look parkerized.

        Anyway, I think it’s nice they included a removable rail, but it doesn’t say anything about a replica original rear sight.

      • floppyscience

        I’m assuming this “metal” is the same cheap zinc/aluminum alloy they use for their pistol slides. If that’s the case I’d personally rather have polymer.

  • Spade

    As was said, make it 9mm, lose the dumb rail.

  • BRENT KAPLAN

    I want a fg42 22.wm

    • Eric S

      Well, for $5k you can have one in 8mm or .308 hypothetically.

    • Zebra Dun

      LAWDS! give me a PapaSha in .22 lr and while at it make me an M-14 in .25 ACP.

  • Esh325

    Because the reason people buy historical WW2 firearms is so they can throw ugly rails on the top of them.

    • jamezb

      Looks like the idiotic rail is just screwed down into the rear sight dovetail, … hopefully implying they include a rear sight to replace it with, allowing you to throw the offending rail as far as you can after removal.

  • mikee

    Schmeisser has become the urban myth surrounding MP 38s and MP40s. Hugo Schmeisser had nothing to do with the production of these SMGs. If a name had to put on the side of the receiver at all it should have been ERMA, which did most of the development of these small arms.

    • floppyscience

      Oh well. The “Mosin-Nagant” was never actually called that and Nagant had nothing to do with it but I don’t see people using the rifles’ proper names any time soon. Once something sticks, it sticks.

      • mikee

        Yea, You’ve got a point there. Just like all German tanks are “tiger” tanks and AKs are AK47s. It ain’t necessarily so!

        • gunslinger

          you’ve seen the news infographic on how to name weapons?

          • mikee

            I’m not quite sure what version infographic you refer to? However, the layman, politicians and the MSM are clueless.

          • gunslinger

            this little gem. more of a joke, but still

          • mikee

            Good One! I like it. The sad truth is that there are actually people who believe this c***p.

    • Zebra Dun

      Well, We could go back and name it the Bergmann.

  • jamezb

    OK, when were we planning on starting our “Dump the stupid NFA/SBR rule” campaign again? I don’t want a fake .22-sized suppressor tube on my ….fake .22 caliber 9mm…

  • jamezb

    I guess brown Bakelite was too much to hope for.

  • Victor

    Why would you do that? Why would you mount a rail on an MP40? That’s like having an M1 Garand with plastic furniture and painted in cryptek pattern.

  • Cymond

    I’m honestly surprised that there’s enough of a market for 22LR MP40 clones to be worth competing.

  • Lance

    I don’t get the dumb rails if you want a good looking WW2 era SMG look alike dump the 1913 rail!

  • maxpwr

    Dump the suppressor and the rail. At least the rail is removable. Doubtful that the dumb looking suppressor is. Nothing historically accurate about that.

    • gunslinger

      probably need it for the 16″ barrel requirement? and having a long barrel with nothing on it looks just as stupid. but yes on the rails

      oh, and .22 ammo anyone?

      • Maxpwr

        I understand what you are saying, but I’d rather keep a blank black 16″ long barrel than a “suppressor” and passing that off as somehow historically accurate because there is probably one photo that maybe shows an MP40 with a suppressor on it from WWII, but 99.9999999999% of them didn’t. Just give me the longer barrel. If H&K still made HK94s in 9mm, I’d put up with the 16″ barrel rather than putting a dumb fake suppressor on it. Though, one could argue, there are probably more MP5s with suppressors ever attached to them than were ever used on MP40s during WWII.

    • Zebra Dun

      Is there a Krumlauf as an accessory attachment?

  • Zebra Dun

    I haven’t seen any .22 lr ammo for about six months.
    Without ammo it’s just another toy wall hanger.
    I’ll have mine in 7.62 x 25 mm Tokarev please.

  • 1GigNig

    Is it open bolt?

  • charles

    its cool but we need to do something and come down hard on the feds and atf to get these stupid laws changed so we can have a repro semi 9mm mp40 or a full caliber semi mp44
