Originally developed in the late 1960s, the S&W Model 76 was designed to fill the niche of a lightweight and compact 9mm SMG after the American special forces community was cut off from sources of the Carl Gustaf M45 "Swedish K" SMG; the Swedish government, neutral in the Vietnam War, was uncomfortable with their exports being used in the conflict. Fixed blade and peep sights on the tubular receiver, with an ambidextrous "FULL"/"SEMI"/"SAFE" selector switch, perforated heat shield, smooth pistol grip and a side folding buttstock with rubberized covering. Included with the lot are 21 extra magazines (several of which are not for the gun) and a commercial loading tool modified to accommodate the Model 76 magazine.
Excellent, with 90% of the original matte black phosphate finish, showing scattered bright rubbing and light handling marks. The grip shows some chipping around the lower hinge and light scratches, while the stock shows some light scratches on the rubber cover and good lockup in in the hinge hardware. The magazine catch is a bit stiff, otherwise mechanically excellent. NOTE: This weapon is a National Firearms Act (NFA), fully transferable Class 3, which is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, (BATFE) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
