Hi,

Check the visible collar tabs: you can see the NCO Tresse and one rank eagle (exclusive for LW). That is for an Unteroffizier.

So i would be glad if somebody could add any pics! I would be especially happy about pics with american captured weapons!


Hi,

In fact it is not a PPSh-41 but a genuine German EMP (Erma Maschinepistole). :wink:

Is this not the German copy of the Sten? The MP3008?

I dont think so.
The MP (IMHO a MP-40) on the pic is bigger than the MP3008.
The MP on the pic also doesnt have the bolt on right side like the MP3008.

Looks like a Russian PPD-40, note the wooden hand rest forward of the magazine well.

BTW, thanks for the wonderful pictures.
