Introduction: Walther MPL (Maschinen Pistole Lang)

Picture of Walther MPL (Maschinen Pistole Lang)

Well, here I am again. I don't think you guys are getting tired of seeing my stuff, are you...? Probably not, no. Anyway...

The Walther MPL is a German weapon developed in 1950. The gun itself is pretty, has a original mag capacity of 32 rds. (imagine that...32 rounds, what a novelty! XD) , and is (I am told) fun to use in Black Ops. Its total length is 18 in., and is rather large for a SMG, but who cares, as long as it looks cool.

My MPL is comfortable, has a mag capacity of 15 - 16 rds. (tan connecters or green rods), and looks almost exact. It is 18 in. long, and is easy to use, with its comfortable trigger and smooth handle.

Great looks
Looks almost exact
Mag is effective
15 - 16 rds.
Shoots rods or connecters
Great range when muzzle loaded
Sights are kinda cool
Its a SMG... o.O what?
Nice pull-back length
Has safety (if you pull the trigger "too hard" it will "lock up." This keeps the FP from blocking).
Range:    0 to 50 ft.
Has separate chamber

Kinda top heavy
To heavy to hold in pistol cup grip
Not at all accurate
Front sights are not far enough back (this really doesn't matter)
I don't have a skeleton stock for it (to make one like the original is impossibly hard)
Kinda piece consuming (this can be totally prevented)

I love this gun. It is amazing, effective, and it looks great! It does require some broken pieces, but most people should have those by now...and if you don't, GET SOME. Seriously...! I am thinking about several different guns right about the Uzi Pro?

Really great gun, maybe build a litlle wire stock or something
are you gonna post it?

Thanks man. No, I'm not gonna post. :-(

Oh okay I guess after the M16A1 I'll be able to build this of off the pictures :)

Meh, this gun is not that great. I'm glad you like it, but I suggest you make an Arsenal Shipka or one of the IWI Uzi line.

Please post some comments here!

Thanks, and thanks for the help bro. Would you like to collaborate on a Uzi Pro (see image below)? I am not sure if you have already started something else, but this sight desperately needs a good Uzi.

Thats an interesting project. I agree that this sight needs some good uzi's. The stock will be interesting to design. It will probably have the same problems as Im having with turning my mp5k into an mp5k pdw. With how compact that will be it wont be easy to incorperate a folding stock unless you make it use one of the full auto concepts,which would mean you couldnt have a barrel or you would severly limit range. There are some pin fired concepts that me and some other people have created that could work but you could only expect about a 20 ft range.

I was planning to leave the stock out. I have never liked Uzi stocks, and this one would be particularly ungainly. Well, I am not going to mess with a full auto concept, but thanks for the suggestion. What do you think of the MPL?

Better than what I did one time, its a very nice gun,does it shoot green rods? I agrea with you about the uzi stock. You could create a custom style uzi pro with a full m16 stock.

XD, that would be awesome!

It can shoot green rods or tan connecters.

Ok,if you could make it hold grey connectors that would be awesome, because then you effective range and accuracy might go up.

Maybe, but I am now working on a Uzi Pro with some other people, so this gun is gonna go. :-(

Ya,cant wait to see it =D

=D) (Double chin man!)

double chin man is being hunted by wolves.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo! Don't die double chin man! You are too young to die!

Lol, to late =p


Lol that's the sorta thing I wanted to do XD

Well, I can add you to the collaboration list...along with honey cakes (XD, I love that nickname) and BlackShadow12...?

Ok that would be fun, a 4 way collaboration :D

Alright, I'll add you. :-)

I havent started anything else yet and I could try to make one.

O.K., BTW, check your collaborations list above your 'ible list on your homepage.
