Sport Systeme Dittrich BD 38: the «Schmeisser» is back!

Sport Systeme Dittrich BD 38: the «Schmeisser» is back!

The forerunner of the iconic MP 40 sub-machine gun is back in a collector’s grade, made-as-new semi-automatic closed-bolt version that would be civilian-legal in many jurisdictions – if you can afford it, that is

Sport Systeme Dittrich out of Kulmbach (Germany) manufactures the BD 38, a civilian-grade version of the MP 38 sub-machine gun

Sport Systeme Dittrich first introduced the BD 38 in 2005

The MP 38 sub-machine gun was first engineered in the second half of the 1930s by Heinrich Vollmer, an engineer at ERMA-Werke in Erfurt, Germany. Based upon the MP 36 design by Berthold Geipel – ERMA’s founder and owner – the MP 38 also integrated some features from Vollmer’s signature projects such as the EMP machine-carbine and the prototype VPM 1930.

Fast-tracked for adoption by the German Wehrmacht in 1938 and used extensively during the first year of World War II, the MP 38 was later modified upon suggestions from the German Army itself to make it cheaper and faster to produce by the numbers.
That would gave origin to the iconic MP 40 sub-machine gun, whose service years did not stop with the demise of Nazi Germany but continued in many Countries for years, with countless armies and several insurgent, guerrilla and even terrorist groups extensively relying upon the MP 40 up until at least the 1970s.

The MP 38 and MP 40 were often incorrectly refered to as the «Schmeisser» by Allied forces, and the name stuck in popular culture. However, neither Hugo nor Louis Schmeisser had anything to do with the development of either variants, although Schmeisser’s patented magazine was used.

In modern times, the MP 38 has become one of the many historical firearms made available to civilian shooters, collectors and re-enactors thanks to Sport Systeme Dittrich, a gunmaker headquartered in the German town of Kulmbach.

Sport Systeme Dittrich carried on a fine work tracing back the original blueprints and even some of the original manufacturing machineries to manufacture and launch a line of historical firearms whose high level of compliance to the original designs and quotas quickly rose to popularity and success among gun enthusiasts worldwide.

Among those historical replicas is the BD 38 – a civilian-grade, semi-automatic version of the original MP 38 sub-machine gun that has been made available in 9mm Luger for international commercial sales and in 9×21 IMI for those Countries where 9x19mm is forbidden or restricted to civilians.

Depending from local laws and regulations, the Sport Systeme Dittrich BD 38 can be classified as a handgun or as a long gun. Configuration may thus vary depending from local provisions concerning the features of handguns, long guns, and short-barrel rifles: it may feature a fully extensible underfolding stock, or it could be locked permanently in the unfolded or folded position, or totally removed; or it could feature a permanent barrel extension.

Technically speaking, the Sport Systeme Dittrich BD 38 is a semi-automatic, locked-breech firearm. The original working system was tinkered with to adapt the design for civilian sales, and that was pretty much the only design change that tells the BD 38 apart from the MP 38.

Originally, Sport Systeme Dittrich also offered a semi-automatic open-bolt variant of the BD 38. It however went out or production after some Countries – chiefly Canada – issued ban-and-confiscation orders on grounds that an open-bolt firearm could be «too easily converted to full-automatic fire«.
The closed-bolt version is of course technically much different from the open-bolt variant, and could not pose such a problem (if the open-bolt version ever did at all). This means that the closed-bolt variant could be viable for import in those Countries that banned the early open-bolt variant.

Sport Systeme Dittrich still manufactures the new closed-bolt version basing on the original blueprints and largely using original techniques and materials.

The entire upper receiver – which hosts the magazine well, the bolt group, and the barrel – is entirely machined out of steel and entirely brunished. The frame is instead manufactured out of aluminum, and features a reddish bakelite shell; the same material is used for the grip panels.

The 24,8 cm (9.76″) barrel features six right-handed grooves, as well as a hooded blade front sight and the quintessential frontal support for firing from a fixed position. The rear leaf sight is instead mounted on the upper portion and can be set to engage targets within 100 or 200 metres.

IWA – Sport Systeme Dittrich’s SG-11, a Modernized FG-42

This is a pretty cool item I ran across here at IWA, spying it out of the corner of my eye as I walked through the aisles. My brain screamed “FG-42” but something wasn’t quite right. I stopped and asked the man at the booth what it was and sure enough, he told me it was a modernized FG-42. Turns out, the guy I was talking to was Bernd Dittrich and it was his company. Aesthetically the rifle is different, but it retains the same operating system as well as a few classic design cues. The name is different as well, being referred to as a Sturm Gewehr rather than a Fallschirmjäger Gewehr.

Chambered in .308 rather than the original 7.92x57mm, the rifle is offered in two length, SG-11 (320mm barrel) and SG-12 (500mm barrel). You’ll notice there added a full length Picatinny rail above the barrel as well as a section below the barrel.

As you can see, it utilizes the original-style magazine which Sport Systeme Dittrich manufactures.

The SG-11 utilizes a folding charging handle but unfortunately, it’s on the right side of the gun, making the manual of arms a bit awkward. I do like that they incorporated an AR-style grip, but I’m not a fan of the CAA model they included kn the display guns. While the stock is inspired by the original sillhouette of the FG-42, accommodation for an AR-style stock would be interesting.

Additionally, they offer an SG-13 which is chambered for the 7.62x54R cartridge. They also manufacture working reproduction firearms. A sampling is seen below. Unfortunately, these are not yet available in the US but Herr Dittrich told me he has been scouting factory locations.
