MP40 magazine rare smooth side

CA$395.00
Early smooth “slab side” magazine for the MP38, MP40 or MP41 submachine guns. 1940 manufacture, M.P.38u.40 marked with spine stamped 98E and Waffenamt WaA815. After 1942 the design was changed from the smooth side to ribbed design to allow better magazine functioning in dusty or sandy environments, a lesson learned in North Africa. The early flat side magazines were converted to ribbed sided design, making the few surviving unmodified examples such as this one rare and highly collectable. Converted to 5 rounds as per stupid Canadian law hence the rivet visible in photos.
