Hickok45 has no trouble getting his hands on some of the most iconic weapons of the last century.
In this video he shows off a classic German MP40 sub-machine gun on full auto.
The MP40 was the sub-gun of choice for the Nazi army in WWII. Designed in 1938 by Heinrich Vollmer, the MP40 was used throughout both the east and western fronts. The Maschinenpistole 40 (Machine Pistol) fires 9x19mm cartridges are a rate of 500-550 rounds per minute.
With an effective range of 100-200 meters, the MP40 was the weapon of choice for squad leaders, paratroopers, and some infantrymen. The MP40 features an open-bolt blowback action available in full auto only. The relatively low rate of fire allowed single shots to be fired with controlled trigger pulls.
