Is this a low-budget BATFE operation?

BINGO! Congratulations, Perdogg! Six minutes to get an identification. That’s what this whole thread was about... To see who would first identify the weapon and see how long it would take them.

I was worried because I found the pic on a liberal website and those guys identified it right away. But we were faster, I think (not sure exactly how long it took them... less than an hour, for sure).

Anyway, omg, can you imagine what stories that gun could tell if it could talk?

There is at least company that still makes the ammo, but the Soviets dumped a lot of German stuff into North Africa after the war. It would not surprise me if there were cases of ammo sitting in warehouse somewhere.

I knew this French guy who used to collect and buy/sell antique firearms who has went to North Africa and bought quite a few of these and other WWII and even WWI weapons over the years. I've also heard that they've been found in Iraq and Afghanistan since we invaded. Afghanistan does not surprise me - some of those people back up in the remote tribal areas are toting 100 year old rifles and are quite happy with them.

MP44's retail in Germany for 2000 EUR which is about $2500 US

There are some other interesting weapons in that photo, is that an M-14?

What in that photo causes you you designate that as an MP44 and not an StG44, an MP43, or one of the other versions? Just trying to learn something. :-)

It shoots a 7.92X33, very difficult to find, but not impossible. I read where this case can be made by shortening an 8mm case.

I wonder if that girl knows that the weapon she carries is probably worth more money than her entire family made that last five years?

Not really surprising. In my Third World travels I encountered a stunning variety of old and rare small arms carefully maintained in working order by local armories for decades. The African and Central American regions are most notable for this. Rarely fired, and rightfully considered a major threat to whoever was in power at the time, the gun toters were usually issued only a handful of rounds, or the magazines were kept in the possession of a squad leader, and only issued as needed. In some cases there might be three weapons sharing one magazine. One of my escorts in the Congo carried an old Sten gun, but the magazine was carried by his CO, and begrudgingly issued intermittently to my escort. In Africa, the gun is big juju. Magazines and ammo aren’t always necessary. Merely the presence of the weapon (functioning or not) will suffice.

I only see 2 weapons in the pic that shoot the same round. The M-98 and the Hakim.

Logistics for that “army” must be interesting.

Extracted this statement from Wikipedia; “New semi-automatic reproductions of the MKb 42(H), MP 43/1, and StG 44 are being manufactured in Germany today by HZA Kulmbach GmbH[18] in the original 7.92x33mm Kurz chambering.”

So, if reproductions of the STG44 are currently being manufactured, then stands to reason ammo is also being manufactured for it. Too lazy to search for that though :)

Sad that the girl in the foreground has an STG44. Quite a historic firearm and very difficult and expensive to get a real one here in the US. That one looks to be in decent shape too.

Our gun laws are shameful here.

I’m also thinking FN because of the carry handle and look of the tripod... Maybe something like the FN MAG/M240? Also, no heat shield on the barrel is a clue. But these look like Qadaffi supporters and FN is more often thought of as a NATO gun... so I don’t know really... doesnt’ help that the receiver and stock are in shadow!

Syrian military stuff is still around.

Hornady and Prvi Partisan in Serbia offer it here in the US, and the Serb ammo's probably available internationally.
