I'm not sure how many Italian members we have, but having watched this, it actually looks pretty good for a low cost, last ditch SMG. Lightweight (What soldier doesn't like that?) and simple. The grip safety is something I'd expect out of California. Having said that, its a simple effective way of eliminating involuntary ammo expenditure. (Honestly, when looking at it, I wondered if a experienced soldier could put rubber bands on the magazine well and temporarily deactivate the safety once in actual combat with the bands, basically leaving the weapon safe when not under immediate threat.

Also, a non reciprocating bolt handle on a cheap SMG from 1944? Interesting.

Anyway, a obscure weapon from a country underrepresented in a lot of WWII stories, I thought the board would enjoy
