Manufactured by Bergmann from the mid-1930's until 1942, the MP35/I incorporated an interesting and advanced feature of an easily removable barrel for cleaning and maintenance. Pressing the detent button with the head of a cartridge on the underside of the forearm forward of the trigger guard allows the user to rotate the muzzle and barrel assembly forward of the rear sight 90 degrees and then remove it; an extremely nice feature. Another interesting feature of this weapon is that it fires semi-auto with single pulls of the trigger and if automatic fire is desired, one need only pull the trigger to the rear and hold it. Receiver serial number is the only visible external serial number. Safety is on the left side of the receiver below the rear sight, which is graduated out to 1,000 meters. The tab to the rear of the safety is a bolt retention latch, which one need only to depress in order to remove the bolt for cleaning. This is an earlier production specimen with a one piece walnut stock. Top of receiver markings indicate it was issued to railway police as the seventh weapon for a particular precinct. The model was supplied primarily to security forces and SS formations. For those who are familiar with them, they are a highly prized example of German milled steel submachine gun manufacturing. This weapon includes four original 32 round magazines. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is extremely fine to near excellent. Original lustrous blue finish is starting to fade in places with typical light handling marks, bruises and dings on wood stock from use. Bore is near excellent, shiny and bright. Bolt face is also extremely fine. Mechanics are crisp. This is a select fire machine gun. An exciting offering for the collector of high quality World War II era German machine guns as well as for the discerning shooting enthusiast/collector/investor. From the estate of noted cartridge collector and World War II veteran William H. Woodin. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4 AS CURIO & RELIC ELIGIBLE.
