View Full Version : MP 38 Replica BFNG
09-26-2010, 3:40 pm
Photos scrounged off the internet of a very high quality replica blank firing MP38, made in the Czech Replublic. It is of machined steel, with new bakelite stock furniture and correct aluminum grip frame. It is said to fire Fiocchi 9mm blanks at the correct rate of fire using original magazines.
Note the careful reproduction of all markings. Yes, Erma was still making MP38s in 1941.
Parts are said to be interchangable with originals.
Little is certain in life, but I'm certain that this will never be approved for US sales!

You are SUCH a tease....
It would be really nice if they were available here in the USA...

Yeah, I want! I'd have one in a heartbeat unless they were really expensive. Then, it would be two heartbeats!
Noticed that another MP38 replica is now being made in the Ukraine. It appears to be of much lower quality, though. I guss that epoxy was one way to secure the stock struts to the pivots! The markings are just wrong:

Must have surprised the hell out of the dog!
The markings on the Czech gun are much closer to original, but you'll notice that the font used for the serials differs just slighty, probably to prevent the parts from being passed off as originals (?).

I thought that maybe the font used for the serial numbers of the reproduction pictured above was off just a bit, looking more Russian than German. No, the font and size are exactly right. See the photos of the original MP-38 linked below and compare. Look in particular at the small case b, which appears on both pieces. Now that's an accurate replica! Sweet.

The original ad for the BFing MP38 is a few years old, there is no response now - when it was first up, I contacted the seller, and he said he had successfully shipped a number of his guns into the US.
I didn't want to risk the importation part, having dealt with customs a couple of times and got lucky, I felt it was pushing my luck.
You are going to see a lot more BFONG's in the US, now that 9.3mm is being produced by three different manufacturers, also, 9mm PAK is an option. There are 5 different full auto BFONG's produced in 9mmPAK - I used the Beretta (Jackal) full auto in two movies, it will only be a time before an industrious manufacturer decides to build a more accurate WW2 blank firer (I have the SSRoom MP40, and I like that a lot. But, do want a more original looking one, too.)
More to follow on this subject - I am in the midst of a deal - will report with result.
The mp38 are 2100 euros shipping is $100 to the USA I've shipped 3 to the US without
Any problem, i mark the the package replica, film prop,

Could you tell me please, how much is the MP38 blank firer and is it importable into the US?
I do not have an SOT or Class 3 papers, I do have an 03 FFL, but it is not good for importation so of little use with this, anyway.
Cpngratulations on a great site and what looks like a flourishing business.

I recognize the SSRoom MP40. What's above it, that has no charging handle cut out?
I have bought a few items from William Haywood, including a nice set of reproduction MP40 pouches and a Zf4 box. He has been a reliable gentleman to deal with.

Yes, he seemed like a straight shooter. It was not his word that worried me, more the importation process into the US.
Above the SSRoom Mp40 is a BNZ MP40 kit built around an aluminum receiver.
