    Recently i saw a video ,about the civil wars in Africa, and--to my surprise-- i saw a weapon that matched greatly the german MP-44!It had some differences but these could be a result of some minor modifications... Is this possible or my eyes mislead me??

    It is quite likely. There are lots of MP-44s still in circulation, they got handed out to other groups when the Yugslavians and others disposed of them. They are still found in Iraq today.

    You can occasionally find the mp-44 in ethiopia and somalia.
    I've seen some pictures of fighters with the mp-44.

    Kind regards,
