A closed-bolt blowback-operated submachine gun, the Reising Model 50 saw action with the U.S. Marines in the Pacific as a substitute for the M1 Thompson, though they found their best success as defensive weapons for war-essential industries and as patrol carbines for American police forces. Blade front and elevation adjustable peep rear sights, with a flash hider/muzzle brake, cooling fins on the barrel, three-line Worcester address/"PAT. PENDING" near the ejection port, and three-position selector/safety on the right side. Smooth pistol grip stock with a cocking lever on the underside and a lightly ribbed buttplate. Included with the lot are five extra magazines, spare springs, and a spare firing pin.
Excellent, with 98% of the bright original blue finish, showing oxidization on the buttplate and mild handling marks overall. The stock is very fine, with some cracking on the right side of the butt and around the buttplate screw holes, along with mild dings and scuffs. Mechanically excellent. The finest Reising Model 50 submachine gun we have ever offered at auction.
