MP41 Schmeisser Machine-pistol
Here’s the latest acquisition, an MP41, manufactured by C.G.Haenel of Sühl. Haenel was a prominent small arms manufacturer. It was founded in 1840 and it’s demise dates to the end of WW2. In 1921 it hired a man, Hugo Schmeisser, who became their chief designer. There’s quite a story behind the design and manufacture of this particular MP but I won’t go into that here. This weapon was functional when I got it and unfortunately I was responsible for it’s demilling. Luckily it seems to have it’s original MP41 stamped magazine with it.
