I’m not sure everyone realizes just how beautiful a piece of war the Maschinenpistole 40 (even if the Thompson is more superior and the MP40 will burn you if you hold it wrong, and oh god, if you get dirt in it, it’s all over for you) really is. This post is all about the aesthetics of the weapon, just look at it. Lovely.
