MP 3008 Geraet Neumuenster 3D model
The 9×19mm MP 3008 (Maschinenpistole 3008 or "machine pistol 3008", also Volks-MP.3008 and Gerät Neumünster) was a German substitute standard submachine gun manufactured toward the end of World War II in early 1945. Also known as the Volksmaschinenpistole ("people's machine pistol"), the weapon was closely based on the Sten Mk II submachine gun, except for its vertical magazine; some had additional pistol grips.
The MP 3008 was an emergency measure, designed at a time when Germany was at the point of collapse. Desperately short of raw materials, the Germans sought to produce a radically cheaper alternative to their standard submachine gun, the MP 40.
