Finnish M/31 Suomi SMG, with muzzle brake, deactivated
Alright you foreigners, listen up. In Finland we
know knew how to make guns. When you can't calculate material strengths, you gotta make it over the top. Besides if it's heavy as hell, it'll kick less and work well as a club. Got it? This thing was great in its time and was made in too little numbers. The SJR (muzzle brake) model was the later edition which saw service starting from the Continuation War.
Please note, these are only sold domestically, NOT shipped abroad. Domestically these are sent via Matkahuolto company because the Finnish national Postal service refuses to ship them.
Made extremely well of good materials, the Suomi SMG became a strong symbol of wartime Finland. Of course, as these were made to last, they also saw service for a long long time and kept in the inventory until the 1990's. From the bitter experiences against this weapon the engineers of the Soviet Union came up with the PPSh-41 and PPS-43.
These are deactivated to the new specs: the barrel is thoroughly perforated and blocked, the bolt is machined to a 45-degree angle, welded shut and the firing pin removed (charging handle still works), and the magazine is permanently welded to the receiver behind the catch. Moreover, the whole inside mechanism is welded shut too, so the trigger does not move either.
With the SMG you get a deactivation certificate with matching serial number to the one found on the receiver.
These are assembled from various parts, so the numbers of each tidbit might not match.
