Featured Firearms

Welcome to Featured firearms! I'll be putting out a new featured firearm every Saturday!

Weapons differ in class, and range in timelines from the early ottoman empire to today's prototype firearms!

* Inspired by the SHOT show, one of the countries biggest firearms shows, held in Las Vegas


Today's featured fire arm, is the German Maschinenpistole 40, or MP40!

Cheaply manufactured from metal stampings, the MP40 was incredibly simple, and was mass produced at the outbreak of the war. even though it was cheap, it was an effective Urban or Close Quarters submachinge gun. It was favored by vehicle crews and lightweight paratrooper teams as it was small, could deliver supressive fire in an instant, and fit in and out of vehicles. However, it was prone to misfeeds and jamming of the user held the magazine as a foregrip.

"Auferre, trucidare, rapere, falsis nominibus imperium; atque, ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant."

"They plunder, they slaughter, and they steal: this they falsely name Empire, and where they make a wasteland, they call it peace."
