I AM LOOKING FOR TUBING, BLUEPRINTS OR ANY TEMPLATES FOR A PORTUGESE F B P SUB-GUN. INFORMATION ON THIS SUB-GUN IS VERY HARD TO LOCATE. THE FBP WAS MANUFACTURED AFTER WW2 AND LITTLE IS WRITEN ON IT. ANY INFO WILL BE HELPFULL.
Freedom is not free. Some will perish to preserve it for the many. Just as our Forefathers did before us, we must take up the battle and not waver. Victory is our only option.
Ever ordered any of their blueprints before? Are they original blueprints for the firearm or are they blueprints for an approved semi-auto reciever?
the only thing thats going to be different is your I.D.,which will match to your bolt after you mill it down. You can order that 4130 tube from any number of suppliers
This was a link I happened to find. I couldn't tell you one way or the other if they are originals or for semi......Originally Posted by Kyle
Prexis/Sten has blueprints and 80% receivers

My copy of "Small Arms of the World" has some info on the Model 48 F.P.B. The trigger is a direct copy of the one used in the M3 SMG. "It has a massive bolt and a telescoping operating spring assembly as originated by Erma and made famous by the MP38 and MP40." There is also a section view of the internals in the book.
Take a look in my photoalbum:
This weapon is a combination of features of the German MP40 and the American M3 "Grease Gun", and was designed by Major Cardoso of the Portugese Army. Extensive use was made of steel pressings, and the result was a reliable and inexpensive weapon. 9 mm Parabellum, 32 shot detachable box magazine, 500 rpm, weight 7.65 lbs
