SOLD - Rare German MP35/1 Submachine Gun with Nazi Reich Finance Markings
|Maker:||Junker & Ruh|
4/16/18 - This is a very nice example of a scarce German MP 35/1 submachine gun that was manufactured by Junker & Ruh in 1943. This style of submachine was originally designed by Bergman & Muller in Denmark in the early 30's and is known for its rotating bolt and cocking mechanism. This is the later, short barreled version of these guns. The short barreled version was heavily used by the German Police and SS units in late 1939-40. This submachine gun is all original and matching, with R.F.V. proofs on the left side of the bolt which indicates that this SMG belonged to the Reich Finance Ministry, and was given inventory number 3188. The bluing rates at about 90% with most of the finish loss on the muzzle or near the end of the barrel. The stock is in good condition but does have some surface scratches, as well as a small chip (near the wrist, on the left side of the stock). The stock and buttplate are numbered to the gun and matching. This gun has been test-fired and the mechanics are all in proper working order. Comes with one original 20 round magazine. Chambered in 9mm. Excellent bore.
