GSG has been on a roll lately when it comes to bringing historical firearms back to life in .22lr form. There’s the GSG 1911, the GSG STG-44 and now the new GSG MP-40 Schmeisser. The one pictured is the prototype and according to the reps from GSG we can expect these to be available later this year. The officially licensed Schmeisser also comes in a wood crate just like the STG-44. Pricing should be under $600 or so, but that’s not been set as of yet.
The MP-40 was always one of my favorite guns in all those WWII movies, so it’s safe to say I can’t wait to get one. And if you’re holding your breath for a .22lr Thompson, GSG claims they tried to bring one to market but were unable to. Hopefully we see one eventually, I’m talking to you Auto Ordnance.
