Schmeisser Vs. Thompson Vs. Grease Gun -- WW2 Submachine Gun Shootoff




What do you think about this video?

TheHigherVoltage: I wonder how many new recruits familiar with firearms and basic physics actually bought into this propaganda.

The lightest .45 with the shortest barrel gets the most hits? Really?
And the heavier .45 with the longer barrel somehow gets less hits? Really??
And the easiest to control caliber... a 9mm...with a recoil buffer to boot...somehow gets the least hits out of all of them? Really???

Starlesslemon: Lmao, the mp40 has almost double the effective range of a Thompson

Noah got lego: Wonder if this is true or just propaganda

AssasaMan X: It's all just like cars. V4, V6, V8. They all serve different purpose, and will all get the job done. Thompson is the V8, power,speed, and you must control the accuracy.

grungefreak10: Naturally, videos like this must be taken with a grain of salt, as biased as they are. Still, experts have agreed that the "grease gun" (so named because it looked like the industrial oil dispensers) were an improvement because they were more accurate and didn't waste rounds. Still, if you were going toe to toe with the Nazi forces, you shouldn't let videos like this lull you into a false sense of security.

lino klein meuleman: shooting at 75 yards,the thompson and the grease gun,lucky to hit anything,at 50 yards .

Segvvolf .308: haha this is how bad myths with firearms begin.

Segvvolf .308: propaganda...

Wes Anderson: Marines liked the Grease Gun.....It was light, yet serious....nice mix🇺🇸✝🇺🇸

Avery Faucheux: out of all of these i would probably take the m3 .45 caliber stopping power in a compact package. the mp40 is the worst out of all of them, the 9mm round has longer range than the 45 but an smg isn't very affective past 50 yards. the m1a1 is the most well made but that's it's biggest downfall you can make 3 m3's for price of 1 m1a1 it is also the most accurate but is a little to heavy an bulky to use in close quarters. three amazing weapons but I'd take an m2 carbine over all of them

Gj23jk2: The low rate of fire is what made the M3 more "accurate" (really just more controllable) at full auto. There's nothing that makes any of those three SMGs more "accurate" than the other; they are all straight blowback, and all have roughly the same barrel length. But you don't get nearly as much muzzle rise at 300 rpm instead of 500 rpm.

I'd take the Grease Gun if I expected to be shooting at 50 yards; the extra control would be very useful. I'd take the Thompson if I needed to clear a house or a bunker; the extra rate of fire might save my life if I ran into multiple bad guys at close range.

Dayum girl: Grease gun all the way.

CB1942EO: schmiesser developed the MP18 smg of ww1. was used in limited numbers in ww2. mostly by police.

Nightmare Bonnie: favorite to least favorite
1: tommy gun
2: mp40
3: grease gun

PANZERFAUST90: So three guys of different skill levels test one gun each, and this somehow proves something.....

Bo Bo: The German gun in the video is called a Schmeisser. Actually the US misidentified the name. Schmeisser was the German company who made the magazine and its name was stamped on the magazine. It was actually the mp40. The original grease gun M3 was a disaster and had frequent jam issues. It was replaced after the war with an improved model m3a1. It actually saw little combat during WWII as the Thompson was the preferred gun. The film was made basically for propaganda as the MP 40 for accuracy was far superior.

Darkzz Lord: i really don't think that this bullcrap actually helped recruits all that much.For freak sake it probably made everything worse for them

spitfiremark14: German pay for their rate of fire...?? 550rpm isn't that fast Thompon is like 600-700Rpm so WTF is that guy talking about? also kind of funny how nearly every military on earth is using 9mm Luger in some way or another.

Ry Cullen: the thompson was the best in reliability

Mr. Hyde: I love these military made videos. Is there a name for this type of film?

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
