Funny thing about that actually...It wasn't a Schmeisser. It was manufactured by Erma Werke (Erfurter Maschinefabrik)

I've aways been a fan of the M3 Grease Gun. It was cheap to produce, decently accurate, and effective.

The one that gave the most bang for the buck was the Sten.
Dirt cheap to make, utterly reliable, and helped an awful lot of "Der Fuehrer's" followers meet lucifer.

The m3a1 was awesome. But it had its faults, so did the sten. the mp 40 was a great gun. I believe my favorite would be the m3 a1. My favorite of all ww11 individual weapons? The m1 carbine and variants.

I had always heard the M1 Carbine was underpowered, a glorified 9mm in a rifle. If I had to pick a favorite overall it would be the B.A.R.

Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but it's caliber size(30.06)

precludes the B.A.R. from being listed in the

"submachine gun" category.


But, if the selection were opened to full-size MGs,

for sheer portability and control, the B.A.R. is hard

to beat...

This **** is what killed half the soldiers in your command, mein herr!

BTW, thaT's a Lanchester, not a Sten. The magazine is inserted from the left side on a Stwen, not the bottom.
