The Firearm Blog has learned that German Sport Guns will be shipping out at least 1,100 of their 9x19mm NATO MP40 pistols to a wholesale dealer in the U.S. Looking at American Tactical’s website, it shows the 9mm pistol available for $649.95, ready for shipping to an FFL. However, we also learned that the MP40s will no longer be coming with their wooden chests, and instead will be in cardboard boxes, unlike their GSG .22 LR brethren that came with the chests. So far we haven’t gotten any word about the SBR version with the under-folding stock. Based on the success of the pistol version, ATI and GSG might release the SBR variant, in addition to kits wherein someone could convert their pistol MP40 once their ATF paperwork came through. In fact, ATI is currently working on trying to get these kits out to the public, pending ATF approval.
From the product description-
American Tactical & GSG are excited to bring to the United States the very first reproduction of the original WWII MP-40 in 9mm.
Manufactured as a pistol with no stock, this replica classic firearm is the closest version of an MP-40 to be importable in decades! While maintaining a close overall appearance to the original WWII firearm, the GSG-MP40P is manufactured with all new parts to US regulation specs for importation.
This firearm ships in a cardboard box, wooden crates are no longer available.
Comes from the factory with 1 25 round magazine and a loading assistance accessory
Additional Magazines are in stock and available for order by clicking the link by the photo of the mag below.
The GSG-MP40P is a new manufactured pistol and is only a replica in appearance to the original MP-40. This pistol is not compatible with original WWII MP-40 parts or magazines.
American Tactical is currently in the Research & Development stage of creating a 922(r ) compliant stock kit for those who want to SBR this pistol under NFA regulations, so stay tuned!
We covered the 9x19mm MP40 pistol status being approved by ATF, and have paid attention to its development over the past year as well, but this is the first time the pistol MP40 has officially gone on sale in the U.S. For many Second World War enthusiasts, this is the closest we can get next to an actual Class III MP40 from the era.
