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




What do you think about this video?

feed me: Grease gun all the way.

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

Nathan Drake: favorite to least favorite
1: tommy gun
2: mp40
3: grease gun

Rebel Rhymes: It's not even called a 'Schmeisser'. It's an MP40. It was lighter than a Thompson, more controlled rate of fire and quicker to reload.
Thompson mag well system is well known for being a poor design.
Also the Thompson was never even designed for any 'Military', I was brought to market as a Police/Civilian Firearm originally. (That might account for it's weight & fiddly reloading)
Thompson is a better quality weapon with superior .45 hitting power. I'd agree with that completely.
But it is slow & expensive to manufacture, too heavy and has magazine well design flaws.
That is why it was replaced as a service weapon with the M3 Grease gun, simpler much lighter and cheap and fast to produce.(although it also had reliability issues)
MP40 was in my opinion a much better SMG all round. Germans make very good smgs. MP5, MP7 etc.
I'm not kissing Germany's ass, It's just a historical Fact.

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

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

The Ithuriel: Americans say: the grease gun is crap, and the Thompson is the best gun
Everybody else says: the grease gun is crap, and the MP40 is the best gun

and please don't call the MP40 schmeißer....

David Rozbořil: 16 people complain about PPSH-41 not being included in video

Di Hu: Are these test results accurate? Three shooters' capability in shooting are different. Different shooting results here really mean nothing. An unbiased test should let 3 sub-machine guns to be shot by the same shooter.

Christopher Bennett: Having shot two of the three I can say that the gun I would want in battle would be the MP-40. I loved shooting the M1A1 thompson but did not like the sights and reloading takes practice to get fast at, also it tends to rise alot more then the MP-40 in full auto. MP-40 was smooth and very controllable in full auto.It is a breeze to reload even in the dark, also it uses classic iron sights. But both weapons are a part of history and great fun to shoot.

NOVA: Yeah so the M3 is more controllable because of it's slow rate of fire, but what if you just need fire superiority to quickly overcome an enemy at close quarters? Imagine 5 soldiers with M3s shooting 450 rpm with 30 rnd mags, that suddenly are faced with 5 communist soldiers with PPSHs shooting 1,000 rpm with 71 round mags. If the firefight ends very quickly, doesn't the side that can put more bullets down range have an advantage?

Simon Watts: freak, what bullcrap! Thompson has higher rate of fire and climbs more than MP40. 

Bat Guano: Yes, yes, we know the MP-40 was designed in 1938 by Heinrich Vollmer with inspiration from its predecessor the MP 38, and it was often erroneously called the "Schmeisser" by the Allies, despite Hugo Schmeisser's non-involvement in the weapon's design and production. Yeah, and all the gunners are "chicken-winging", but that was not frowned up then in the time before infantry body armor.

faffaflunkie: Yeah- but the 9mm- unlike the .45- still can penetrate when it gets there at 75 yards.

Rahleyboy: Being very familiar with all three weapons, SMGs are limited by their pistol cartridge to close-range, urban and heavily-wooded fighting. In open, rural areas, the rifle cartridge dominates because if it's longer range. Unfortunately, the GI couldn't pick and choose the weapon that he was issued when going into different combat zones.

eogg25: That's pretty good shooting with the grease gun. they should have included the BAR

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