The history of the MP40 dates back to pre-World War 2 era. The MP40 (German: Maschinenpistole 40, English: Machine Pistol 40) is an open-bolt, blowback-operated submachine gun chambered in the 9×19mm cartridge. It was designed in 1938 by Heinrich Vollmer and was based on the earlier MP38. The MP40 was designed to be more cheaper than the MP38, using stamped metal parts rather than machined ones. 

It saw extensive use by the Axis Powers and its allies in the European theater during the Second World War. From 1940 to 1945, an estimated 1.1 million MP40s and its variants were produced
