GSG Mp40
 
Just saw the video, been waiting for this one. Looks like a great candidate for my first SBR.

Wonder how those straight mags will feed.

Looks pretty sweet. If I didn't have the hk mp5 22lr I'd check it out for sure, well I won't lie I'm still considering it now lol. but just fyi it is not a sbr the mp5 also comes with a "suppressor" attached if you unscrew the look a like suppressor the barrel runs the length of it. A true sbr requires a tax stamp. But usually you can convert them but you have to get a tax stamp before doing so. Also alot of the gsg's I have handled are very "cheap" feeling. So watch out for that.

Yeah, i was thinking of having it converted. There is a class III smith in my area.

I love the MP40 but just don't think that I could stand to own one with a 16" barrel and a fake suppressor, same deal with the Thompson, I will buy at least one of them and SBR it.... One day, I hope so anyway.

Ya the only reason I did go with hk mp5 22 was because that gun is known to be suppressed and several government agency's use suppressors on them so it looks natural.

Im upset they didn't make this stg 44 and mp40 in 9mm I guarantee a ton of people would buy them. 600$ for a mp40 in .22lr is way to high though, it should be around 450-500
