Brand new WW2 German Guns (Mp44, Mp38, Fg42)

Has anyone out there heard of a company called Sport-Systeme Dittrich, located in Germany? I came across the name of the place while browsing an Mp44 collectors homepage, when someone signed his guestbook with the comment about buying semi-auto versions of the Mp44, and gave the name of the company. I'm amazed at the shear beauty of their replica's. These are fully functional semi-auto versions of Mp43's, Mp44's, Mp38's, Fg42 (they are currently developing both the 1st and 2nd model). There are several pictures of the firearms, including one that I really enjoyed of an employee inspecting an Mp38, with a full rack of Mp38's behind him on a work bench (that's on the 'About Us' page). Gotta love that!

I've seen semiauto MP40s advertised in recent issues of Shotgun News. They are WAY above my pay grade. Wonder if they're these?

No prices listed on the web page you linked. No word that I found on US import. All references to the law seemed to be German law.

Very interesting, though; thanks for sharing the link.

I'll sell my house, both trucks and ALL my belongings for an STG if they've got one! Even if it's semi auto!

They’re not importable because you can’t import the receivers or barrels. My thought is, if someone could make receivers and barrels, then you could import the rest of the parts and build one up. The FG-42 is a dream of mine.

Aply to ATFE to declare them Curios. A firearm does not have to be over50 years old to be a curio or relic, but due to limited production, and the historical fairearms they copy, might be enough to get it approved.
C'mon, they got the Yugo SKS approved, why not these?
Either that or they import some of the parts, and assmeble here on US made parts and recievers, like CZ-USA's new vZ-58 rifle.

I believe it does have to be out of production though.

While the MP-44 looks cool, it is rather heavy and unbalanced. The MP-40 is one of the smoothest 9mm subguns I have ever shot.

I'd love an MP38/40!
The C&R request might work, I want to re-read the rule book.
I'd definately clean out the safe to get one of those.

The one I shot (all 9 rounds) didn't seem unbalanced to me, but it was heavy. My impression was that it probably was a good fighting rifle. I know a few people who have shot them extensively and report the same thing. A good friend of mine says they're nice to shoot on full-auto...but since I only had 9 rounds, I opted to stick with semi-auto and see if I could hit targets out to 300 yards...and yes, I could. Shooting the MP44 was a real treat.

Re: Brand new WW2 German Guns (Mp44, Mp38, Fg42)

I was doing some sleuth work online, looking for possible sources for m1917 Enfields, since I became passionate about one at a local gunshow a week ago at a bad financial point in time, and came across something that reminded me of this thread I'd started. While on Inter Ordnance's new web site (I.O. Inc.) I found what I believe may prove to be the first entry point of the Mp38 made by the german company I mentioned (Sport-Systeme Dittrich).

They've permanently affixed the folding stock in the folded position (to get around the pistol with butt stock law).

Price is currently a hefty $3490.

See for yourself if interested.

Mp38

Also, if anyone is interested in P14s, Century has them

I mailed them a copy of my C&R so I can see their pricing.

i think just about everybody has, in one form or another- chinese, german, thai, indonesia, come to mind right off- it's pretty simple- as they used to say, a spring , a wire and a prayer- or just about any plumber could make one- the germans actually made a couple of versions- one with the mag straight down like the mp40- mp 2008 or somesuch

Re: Brand new WW2 German Guns (Mp44, Mp38, Fg42)

I recently contacted two of my budys in germany to see what they know about these new remakes.
According to them the guns are not very well thought of in the Fatherland.
They both said that they have a reputation for unreliability.

To say the least this was not what I wanted to here.

I would sell every gun that I owned to get a good reliable STG44 with mags and a good sourse of ammo.

Maybe once they get here to the states some enterprising gunsmith will figure out how to make them run.

Kinda likewhen they first tried brining in PPsH41 clones. Well, I would love one of the MP38 clones, and definately an MP40 clone, but not for half of what my car cost. And certainly not if it's unreliable.

Re: Brand new WW2 German Guns (Mp44, Mp38, Fg42)

I agree with Armoredman; way too much $$$$. A semi AK-47 would be more cost effective. Hey, my Bushmaster was less than half that cost. If I'm going to dish out that kind of $$ I want full auto.
And we know that ain't gonna happen ....

If these are the same guys who are making the .22 cal Mp5 clone, they have done good.....the Mp5 in .22 is a hoot to shoot and works well.
