Default GSG MP40

From your experience (both self tested and returns/complaints), what's your opinion of th 9mm GSG MP40? You've sold out pretty quick in the past and I'm just wondering what your customers have said. Granted, you have zero control over the reported issues, but just want to get a general idea.

From some reviews I think we'll see some used ones up for sale soon.

We have not had any returns or complaints on the MP40 pistol thus far and the one we use at our range had been doing just fine. All of this being said they have only been out on the market for a few months .

Default GSG Mp40

Well mine won't be one of them up for sale. Out of the box mine ran great with 115 gr Perfecta, Federal & Blazer brass. No failures, no problems. Up close it looked as good as the pics, fit n finish were better than other GSG imports I've seen.

Mags seem to sell out fast though so plan to pay $35 a pop for them. But I've paid that much for most of the metalform Colt SMG mags I have.

One thing that I've not seen mentioned much is the little speedloader this thing comes with. I'd planned to toss it in a drawer and use my Maglula pistol loader (which does work) but the included loader actually works pretty good and also has a half moon protrusion on the side for quick unloading.

Honestly, I expected this thing to have some teething issues and a long break in period. It's a new design and probably isn't going to sell in BIG numbers, being a replica. It's not really very practical compared to my AR 9mm pistol with a brace. But it's fun. If you want a WWII era weapon like an M1 Garand, M1 carbine, Thompson, or K98 Mauser, you can get one. But if you're a fan of the MP40 and don't have $40k to drop on a real one, this is a lot of weekend fun.
