Discussion relating to the S&W 76, Swedish K, MK760, Stemple, Port Said, and the rest of the family.
Here is a multi view side by side comparison of the S&W 76 and MK 760 mags.
The main things to note:
1. Different base plates.
2. 76 has a metal follower and the 760 is plastic.
3. Holes sizes for round count.
There have been some questions concerning how (and how much) to file Suomi and Swedish K mags to fit the S&W 76 and MK 760. This might help......
A new book called My Life Journey with Smith & Wesson by Dwayne W. Charron, former director of research and development at Smith & Wesson, has recently been release. The book reveals the behind-the-scene story of several Smith & Wesson firearms, including the Model 76 submachine gun, which will be...
There are at least two different kinds of production S&W 76 magazines, which I detail with photos below. This post deals with prodcution S&W 76 magazines, and NOT tool room magazines which are different in design.
There has been some opinion stated here and elsewhere that S&W 76 magazines...

The bolt on the right is a Smith OEM bolt. I picked up another non-Smith bolt a couple of years ago as a spare. As you can see from pics there is a difference in the V notch, but other than that both bolts are identical in terms of dimensions. I have cycled both bolts through in the FA position...
Just filled the Form 4 out today. The wait begins..... It's very nicely built and the mag lock up is really great! It's a little ugly but nothin a Andrewski Re-Finish can't fix.
The 1st generation Tubes had serial numbers that started with "L-XXX" This is a 2nd generation tube and it starts with...
I've built several UZI's and AK 47's and now want to build a couple Swedish K's. I have 2 de-milled kits and need the other component's to finish. I've inquired Indianapolis Ordinance and see they have upper receiver tubes, lower sheet metal, smaller diameter bolt's, 16' barrels, and rivets. My...
I have found a source for speed loaders for the M76 magazines. They work on the original S&W mags as well as the Suomi magazines.
They are made by RAE Industries: https://www.raeind.com/

I'm selling some S&W 76 parts I bought from Scott Andrey some years ago since I sold my 76. Parts listed in the classified section.
I am currently creating the drawings for new production S&W76/MK760 SMG bolts. I have found some large variation in the bolts I have measured. I need more bolts to measure to get correct numbers to make new bolts.
I need to borrow your factory bolts. I will need the bolt for a week or two to...
Hi all, wanting to know what the going rate for m/45d kits are. I received a Swedish kit with selector-lever lower, a spare bolt, and one of Philly Ordinance's 80% receivers. It's nice, but I am not really wanting to hold onto it.
What would a good asking price be?
I am thinking of selling my MK-760. I runs well and is in good shape. It is a S pre-fix California gun. It is on a form 4 is AZ. Thanks for price suggestions.
Where would be the best place to sell a S&W 76, as far as the most viewers, potential buyers? Should I show the serial number? I've never sold a NFA item, but need to help fund another purchase. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
I have finished the prototype 76/760 SMG extractors and I am happy with them. I have put them up on our parts website at: EXTRACTORS
I am going to see how many of them sell before 9/5/16. Your card will not be charged until we are ready to ship. At that point I will determine how many I will make...
