How is the MP38 cheaper than the MP40? I thought the latter was made more cheaply of stamped metal, rather than machined parts?

according to Gander „Enzyklopädie deutscher Waffen 1939-1945: Handwaffen, Artillerie, Beutewaffen, Sonderwaffen“, p.52, the 60RM figure may have priced in the non-recurring costs for new production machinery and tooling for the stamped sheet metal parts of the gun.
