Beretta MP 38/42 parts kit. Please review pictures and ask any questions. Please note that the bolt and other parts are covered in grease. "Originally designed by Tullio Marengoni in 1935, the Modello 38A (M38) was developed from the Beretta Modello 18, itself derived from the Villar Perosa light machine gun of World War I fame. It is widely acknowledged as the most successful and effective Italian small arm of World War II. The 1938 series was extremely robust and proved very popular with both Axis forces as well as Allied troops, who utilized captured examples. Many German soldiers, including elite forces such as the Waffen-SS and paratroop forces, actually preferred to use the Beretta 38 in combat. Firing a powerfully-loaded Italian version of the widely distributed 9x19mm Parabellum cartridge, the Cartuccia Modello 38, the Beretta was accurate at longer ranges than most other submachine guns. Fully-automatic or single-shot fire was selectable by the use of two triggers. The Model 38 had a wooden stock, was about 800 millimeters in length, and weighed about 3.3 kilograms when loaded, with an effective range of about 200 meters."
