The Gustloff Volkssturmgewehr (originally called the MP 507, often erroneously known as the VG1-5) is a last-ditch semi-automatic rifle made by Nazi Germany.
The gun was designed by Karl Barnitzke of the Gustloff-Werke, and was intended to be used by the Volkssturm. Production started in January 1945 and lasted until the end of the war; roughly 10,000 were made.
The Gustloff Volkssturmgewehr used a unique gas-delayed blowback system, which was very similar to the one used on the Grossfuss Sturmgewehr. However, the Gustloff Volkssturmgewehr's gas system did not work as reliably as the Grossfuss', due to the gun's crude design.
