Deactivated Old-spec Czech wartime ZK383 SMG

C477 - Old-spec Czech wartime ZK383 SMG - no foreign stamps
A rare and very good condition ZK383 sub-machine gun as issued to the Wehrmacht and specifically the SS during WW2. These were extremely high quality guns finished to pre-war standards with milled and machined, not stamped components. Some were sold commercially before the war to Portugal and various Latin American countries. Once the war began all production went to the Heer with most ending up in SS issue as they particularly valued its excellent quality, smooth operation and accuracy.
The examples sold to South America and Portugal generally had the national emblem stamped on the receiver, whereas this has none indicating it stayed in europe during the war where it would have been issued to the German army following its overun of Czechoslovakia. It was accurate enough to be fitted with an 800m rifle-type sight, a bipod and a quick-change barrel for use as a light machine gun. It also featured a dual-rate of fire with a weight added or removed from the bolt by the operator to vary the rate of fire from 500 to 700 rpm respectively. It was very easy to strip without tools. As highly finished as a few other pre-war guns such as the MP34 and Beretta 38 it was, as with these SMGs, highly prized by soldiers due to its excellent finish and reliability. A very high quality wartime SMG in very good condition, this example is deactivated to old specification and can be stripped, cocked and dry-fired.
