Having taken a close look at this original Erma EMP submachine gun yesterday, we are out at the range with it today. Like several of the interwar SMGs, the Erma was designed with a magazine well long enough to accommodate 9mm Steyr (9x23mm) ammunition, and it was offered in several different calibers. The 9mm Parabellum magazines have a spacer at the rear to hold the rounds forward for proper feeding.
In addition to Erma production, the EMP was copied by the Spanish La Coruña arsenal in the 1940s. Spanish magazines are readily available, and I am curious to see if they will work in a German EMP…

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
