See This Incredible German MP 3008 Sten Machine Gun Copy

The MP 3008 is the German copy of the British Sten Submachine Gun.

This copy was meant to be a cheap stop-gap weapon that was made in haste.

Watch Ian from Forgotten Weapons explain the inner-workings of the German MP 3008 machine gun.

If copying something is truly the most sincere flattery, then this machine gun is a labor of love. Well, we certainly know that was not the case with this epic copy.

The Nazi German military of World War II needed a cheap quick to make weapon. They looked to the British Sten Submachine Gun for the answer. With a few changes their copy became known as the German MP 3008. This was also known as the Gerät Neumünster.

This cheap weapon did not turn the tide of the war. It has, instead, become a historical weapon with a great story to tell.
