A classic look at a fraction of the original price (Photo: Don Summers/Guns.com)

The MP-40 is a classic military weapon developed by the Nazis and throughout the war served as a trophy for U.S. servicemen. They were only produced for a short period of time, from 1940-1945 but it’s estimated that over 1 million Mascinenpistole 40 were produced.

These days it’s extremely rare and expensive to own an authentic MP-40. You’ll likely have to pay $20,000 to $30,000 to get one authentic. In addition, you’ll also need the tax stamp and all the paperwork that goes with it. That’s why we’re ditching the authentic version to show you the ATI GSG MP-40.

German Sport Guns manufacturers the guns in Oesterweg so you still have some authentic Deutchland connection. ATI imports the MP-40 clones for sale stateside, but at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. It weighs in at 7.4 pounds unloaded, but just like the real thing this only aids in the accuracy.

Just like the real thing this gun is chambered in 9mm and comes with one 25-round magazine. The one big notable difference between the two designs is that the ATI version lacks a stock, making it a pistol. Of course, you’re not going to get the famous full-auto either but at least you’ll save money on ammo. Speaking of, thank you to Aguila for providing ammo for this display.

All in all, this gun shot great and ate through all the Aguila we could feed it. It’s a fun gun, something to take to the range with your buddies and shoot all day. It’s an accurate gun and with the 9mm chambering it’s affordable to shoot as well.
