They were a development of the earlier MP38 and served the Nazis and German armies throughout the war. They were a very well made, reliable weapon and were as good as any other design in use at the time. They were very popular with allied troops and were still being used by the SAS in the Gulf states well into the 1960s were their reliability in sandy conditions was appreciated.
