A refinement of the World War One era MP18 SMG, the MP28.II was part of the last generation of "heavy metal" SMGs, prior to the transition to the MP38/MP40 models for the Germans. Blade front and two-leaf rear sight graduated "100" and "200", with a ventilated receiver that doubles as a heat shield for the barrel and a magazine well marked "M.P.28.II/SYSTEM/SCHMEISSER/PATENT". The underside of the receiver bears the serial number. A manual hook safety is integrated into the receiver, with a "D" and "E" marked pushbutton selector switch built into the trigger guard. Fitted with a smooth pistol grip stock with grasping grooves on the forearm and a ribbed steel buttplate. Includes a brown leather sling and some spare parts.

Rating Definition:

Good, with 80% plus refinished blue overall, showing a plum tone to the magazine well, scattered handling marks, covered pitting and general wear. Numbers are mixed. The sanded revarnished stock shows some dents and scratches overall. Some screws and pins are absent from the magazine well and sear assembly, and the barrel and the mechanism needs work as the trigger does not release bolt. 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) that is classified as a "Curios or Relic" as defined in 27 CFR, 478.11. These weapons are still subject to the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
