DescriptionRemanufactured by Wilson Arms Co. of Brunswick, GA, using numerous original WWII MP40 parts assembled onto a newly manufactured receiver.

The rear receiver end cap stamped: "MP40/bnz/43" over the serial number. The various parts have mixed numbers; however, they all appear to be original parts except the barrel, which appears to be a newly manufactured replacement. The left side of he barrel is stamped "764" on the left side. The bolt is stamped "2829" with a double Waffenamt proof. It has dark red bakelite lower receiver cover and grip panels. The original markings and proofmarks are still clear and visible on the various parts. Includes two magazines total, both stamped "MP.38U.40".

ConditionVery good as assembled with 95% of its current blued finish as applied when it was remanufactured. The bakelite grips and sides of the trigger housing are all in very fine condition showing only light handling marks overall.

SHIPPING CHARGES. All shipping charges must be paid by the successful bidder prior to delivery of the firearm. If Rock Island Auction (RIAC) is asked to ship the purchased lots, there will be a separate charge for such shipping. Shipping charges will be based upon what it costs RIAC to ship the purchased lots to the purchaser. All items must have shipping insurance; this insurance is mandatory. RIAC will not charge any labor charges for shipping. RIAC is not liable for any acts of omissions in packaging or shipping.

RIAC will arrange for packing and shipping at RIAC’s earliest possible convenience. RIAC will attempt to ship as soon as possible; however, due to RIAC’s high volume of absentee bids, shipping can take up to two weeks after full payment is received. In the case of crating or any exceptional packaging, the purchaser will be charged RIAC’s cost from outside agents. Purchaser pays shipping, packing materials, and insurance charges.
