H&R Reising M50 Submachine Gun - USMC marked


Recommended Posts

Here is my dad's legally registered Reising submachine gun. This gun has a PM 2 mark where the barrell attaches to the receiver. According to "The Reising: Submachine Gun Story" Book by Frank Iannamico, those marks denote United States Marine Corps use.

 

The case is made by Federal Laboratories. The case was made for police and para-military types, but a few did make it into military service.

Coool. Hows it shoot?

It shoots very, very well. He has had it for over 20 years and he has never had a jam with it once.

Sabre,

Thanks for the compliment. Dad and I both are collectors of militaria. He has collected guns, knives, holsters, and web gear since the 50's. When I started collecting, I started collecting uniforms and web gear as to avoid having to compete with my dad at the gun shows. :lol: It has worked out well, as he looks for items for me and I do the same for him. I have very fond memories of our time spent together collecting. :thumbsup:

Nice to hear it shoots well! I've heard that a lot of their problems don't show up in civilian use because private owners either have worked out mechanical issues or can give them better care and operating conditions than the field. Very cool.

My dad is metculous about cleaning his guns. I always joked that my dad was teaching me how to field strip and clean guns while other fathers were teaching their kids how to play baseball or football! Actually...that isn't too far from the truth. :lol:
