Re: MP40 bnz from my collection

Fantastic, just fantastic. To actually be able to own one demilled or functional is beyond many persons dreams. A true prize. Interesting to see all the markings and those serial numbers. Go ahead and laugh. Been thinking about this, but markings on it all all wrong or missing on this replica. :roll...

Can I repost these on my K98k post rather than just a link? I will actually post both- a source link and repost the photos. http://www.surplus...
