Maxim SMG

SMG 08/18 (without feed box and front grip)

The Maxim SMG and SMG 08/18 are the unofficial names for an experimental German submachine gun based on the MG 08/18 (the upgraded air-cooled version of MG 08/15). The gun is fed from a multi-column en-bloc clip which held 8 column of 10 9mm Parabellum cartridges. The clip is inserted into the left side of the feeding box and pulled upwards into the chamber by a rack mechanism within the gun. When a column is emptied, the clip is pulled to the right, putting the second column in position. When all rounds are fired, the empty clip is pushed out through a slot on the right side of the feed box. [1]

This item has a Codex entry: SMG 08/18
"The SMG 08/18 takes the mechanism of the MG08 machine gun, and scales it down to the 9mm parabellum round. It feeds from a unique 80 round clip."
