AUTOMATIC is Ukrainian company manufacturing fully functional historical weapons replicas, dummies, blank firing weapons as well as some own designs.
In 2005 a team of engineers sharing passion for military history with just one milling machine available started development of a highly precise M.P.38 submachine gun copy. All of the team members were experienced in metalwork and designing. The team also had access to M.P.38 exhibited in a museum which was used as a sample. Designing process was started from a scrap: first step was to make molds for Bakelite parts and magazine well.
Three months after the first highly detailed (with all markings) dummy was finished.
The next project was PPD-40 submachine gun followed by PPD-38/40, МР28, and МР18.
Starting from 2008 AUTOMATIC launched production of its blank firing weapons as a supplement to the dummies, which quickly became popular among historical reenactors and producing studios around Europe shooting war films.
The company started manufacturing firearms in 2016. Today the brand is known not only with its highly precise historical weapons replicas, but with its original models as well.
