The M56 submachine gun is a Yugoslavian submachine gun chambered in 7.62×25mm Tokarev, designed for use with the Yugoslav People's Army. Initially a state-funded product, it saw use in a number of conflicts following the breakup of former Yugoslavia including the Vietnam War, Lebanese Civil War & Gulf War. The M56 is a clone of the Nazi German WW2 MP 40 submachine gun, easily distinguished from the MP 40 by its increased length and curved magazine. While inexpensive to produce and easy to maintain, the M56 also proved to be quite effective at range over its German counterpart; its 7.62 mm cartridge providing significantly more penetration over the 9×19mm round found in the MP 40.This is an excellent, M56 sub machine gun. Deactivated to UK specification in 2006 the weapon’s trigger moves, The cocking handle marked ‘Ukoc’ (brake) & ‘Otkoc’ (unbreak) rotates as it should and its magazine can be removed. This example has excellent metal work throughout, with folding stock that fits snugly and functions perfectly as it should. It has the correct grooved plastic grips and plastic stock. The rear of the breech housing is stamped with Yugoslavian crest and number ‘E-71365’. The weapon has other un-matching stamped codes which are most likely parts / stores numbers. The breech has a hand etched number ‘71365’ which matches the breech housing number. The bottom of the magazine has a stores/ parts number (numbers illustrated in image 2). The price includes deactivation certificate & UK delivery. Sn 17699:8
