F.N.A.-B model 1943 submachine gun
Of all the submachine guns that I have played with or examine I find the F.N.A.-B model 1943 to be one of the very interesting ones. This submachine gun was design and made by Fabbrica Nazionale d’Armie in Brescia,Italy between the years 1943 and 44. The entire receiver was machined out of bar stock making it very costly to build.
Machined magazine housing. A good view of the magazine housing release.
The magazine folded forward.
A view of the inside of the lower receiver and the locking area at the front of the receiver.
It is interesting how the entire fire control group is attached to the upper portion of the receiver and the lower housing is just a shell.

Even the top cover is machined

The rear sight and machined front section of the upper receiver.
Now on to the Bolt. A basic Kiraly operating system.

Back of the forward bolt.
A great deal of time was spent machining this weapon out. It is a beautiful weapon.
