I don't personally own an AGM MP40(though plan to get one at some point) From what I have read the gun can hold its own, but low accuracy and mag capacity hurt it and the onley differance between the two guns is trademarks and about $100.
1. Yes, it can. If you expect it to act like a submachine gun in airsoft, it will. It'll throw out a bunch of rounds, but isn't exceptionally accurate. If you want to make it more accurate or get a higher rof, you can always add an H-nub and a 9.6v battery. Gearbox is pretty easy to get into and work on as well.
2. The stock, like the rest of the gun, is metal. This metal is pot metal, and I know both Shadycadence and my stocks have popped off. I believe on both of ours the pins popped out. I fashioned new pins, and also epoxied the stock on. It's pretty strong now.
3. Not really sure.
4. The Cybergun is typically more expensive. Pretty sure that's about it. The Cybergun version also has a few mediocre trades on the receiver.
5. Build quality, as I mentioned, is relatively mediocre. It's basically a big ol' hunk of pot metal. Not too bad, and you can fix/modify it pretty easily.
I concure that the MP40 is a good value and will hold it's own quite well. Especially for the money. I have owned three or four of them and have been quite pleased with all of them. Several were rental guns and held up well and continue to soldier on. The very early versions shot at around 290 FPS but the current ones shoot at roughly 330 FPS right out of the box. Quite impressive for a short gun. Mags are affordable and it disassembles easily. My only complaint is the need to use a mini battery but with Ww2 historic games where far fewer rounds are fired when compared to a conventional skirmish this is really not an issue.

1. The AGM MP40 can hold its on against most AEG, its range is kind of crappy after 12ft, its around 300fps last time I chrono it.
2. The stock is pot metal, not too strong but it does not break off either, or at least not yet. I would not use it too much.
3. MP40 magazine are a real problem. There is only two type, one is metal but only hold 50rd the other is plastic and hold only 110. In recent skirmish, I found myself out of ammo after about 45 min of conservative firing.
F.Y.I if you have the money, get the german map case its a great dump pouch for the MP40 magazine, it can fit and extra 10 mag.
4. There is no different internally, I compare my Cybergun and my friend AGM, its exactly the same. Externally, however the Cybergun is fill with trademark from smeisser (I think I spell it wrong).
5. Build quality is amazingly good for the price. Not the best in the world but not the worst either. If you want one for cheap, Kapowwe is selling them in mix match pakage of three different gun for 159.
I hope that help.

For $99 (airsoft megastore) its a great value the person you wrote after 12 feet meant 120 feet is a good gun for the price and I would recommend it. The stocks good but a little wobbly also its good good accuracy for a cheap sub machine gun. The mags are (h x w)

I have some questions about an MP40 and don't know if this is the right place for it, but here we go.
1. Can the AGM MP40 hold its own against regular AEGs? ( yes I understand it is a Chinese clone)
Having used the AGM MP40 this past weekend at the Battle for Tolland event (2009), I’d have to say yes. Yes it holds its own against them so long as you are not trying to our suppress your opponents. Use it as a sub machine gun and not a heavy machine gun with 500+ round high capacity magazines and you will be happy with the gun.
As far as complaints against only having low/mid capacity magazines. Just buy more magazines and only shoot at targets you have +80% chance to hit.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
