ATI MP 40 (.22LR)

    Along with the Stg.44, ATI plan on importing a clone of the famous German MP 40 Maschinenpistole chambered in .22 LR. It is a very nifty gun.

    One problem with importing a replica of the MP 40 is that it has a very long tubular receiver and a short barrel. The gun pictured in the photos is actually classified as a short barreled rifle (SBR) but is quite a long weapon. ATI has two options to address this, either they shorten the receiver and increase barrel length or permanently attach a faux suppressor. They are thinking that the latter option is more likely and plan on building authentic faux replica’s of German WWII suppressors.

    Don’t expect to see this gun before 2012.
