Yes, exactly. Until 2003 everything looking lika a full automatic assault weapon was banned in Germany, no matter if it was a real semi-only firearm, a dummy/deact, a low-powered air gun or a toy.

So this is a 10-year ban only ranged from 1993 - 2003 (similar to US's Sunset Clause - the ban automatically lifted if not renewed) or something happened back in 1993 but 10 years later the ban regarded as unnecessary?

Well, we had a bad shoot-out at a high school in the town of Erfurt with lots of young people killed, so our weapons law got changed in 2003, banning some kinds of weapons and making acces to fire arms even harder. The strange thing was that the assault weapon look-alike ban was abandoned, maybe this was due to European regulations.
I forgot to say that the assault-weapon look-alike ban was very old and propably a result of the lost second World War. Only the Marushin kits were allowed to be sold and bought until 1993, but it was strictly forbidden to assemble them within Germany. A court decided in 1993 that the kits can not be judged in another way than fully assembled "assault weapon" models. So the kits had to be taken off the German market.

PostSubject: 1973 & 1977/78 vintage Collector's Armoury RMI Unique Imports catalog pics   Wed Jul 01, 2015 7:00 pm

Hello everyone,

This is my very first post! I took pics of my two old catalogs to share on my Flickr pg. If anyone needs a better scan of a certain section, just let me know.  I could still shoot myself for throwing out all of the 80s ones I had growing up!!  (I paid a pretty penny for these two on feeBay over the the last few yrs.) The artwork is so cool!

Due to the forum's newbie rule, I will have to wait until I can put up the flickr link once my first 7 days expires... In the meantime, if you can't wait just go on flickr and look under my user name, which is the same as here. enjoy, Royce

Thanks! I found a 1986/87 issue today on ebay that will be arriving in the near future, so I'll add that one as well. I was in the original Collector's Armoury store in Alexandria, VA back in 1982 and it was awesome to see in person! I was a broke kid but was still able to get 3 repro german badges and my brother bought a P38, which he still has in the box. We used to take it to school for book reports etc and no one would care... sad how times have changed.

Hello!  No, it's okay I understand. I'm so excited to have found a mint 86/87 copy, so I can't wait to be able to share it with the others.  One thing I just noticed while going through these two catalogs is the fact that there was no 1:1 scale Mp40 even offered! I'd love to see that 2/3 scale mp40 today though; I bet that is worth some money!

PS: Cerwyn, would you be able to copy the above links to this section (http://mp40modelguns.forumotion.net/t1967-rmi-replica-models-incorporated) on RMI? I will add to the RMI info as I come across more goodies!  Thanks!!  -Royce

Hi Royce,


No problem, I'll add the link to the RMI section when I see it.


The only 2:3 scale model MP40 I'm aware of is the "Junior" version. I'll have a search through the Forum's pages about them. As the "Junior" label suggests it was aimed at the children's market as an exclusive toy.

Not that i like to brag but i have 2 of these scaled down mp40's. one is complete and fires (though not got it working really well on full auto yet) the other has a few bits missing. Its a very accurate copy and a great model, never seen any spare mags or parts for it though.

Yes, I'm sure they are really rare! I have been buying & selling on feeBay since 1999 and I have never seen one go up for sale in the US. I did own a 1/4 scale M60, but it was kind of crappy in person, so I sold it. Do you have pics posted on here of them? I'd love to see them.

I just photographed the 1986/87 catalog for anyone interested; that was one of my favorite issues! It is located under my albums on my 'pedal2metal' flickr page; have fun!

You are very welcome! I added some more RMI ads (from 1971) showing how "cheap" the guns were then, and also two stories I found recently, one on RMI's pfc guns and the other a 1968 story on Nakata, which could very well be the first time replica guns are introduced in America! Both stories are in the History section. Enjoy!! -Royce

As promised some Photo's of the mini MP40. Not the best pics done very quickly with my phone but it gives you an idea. the full scale model is a Nakata.

I've always been under the impression the 2/3 scale "Junior" models were made by Marushin too

It's very surprising to see the scale model next to the original sized one.
Nice piece for a collection!

Thanks for posting those comparison pics Claymore -

I always liked the miniature MP40's - just not sure what I would do with them, lol.

Now if there was a miniature FG42, or MP44 - those would be nice.
