Another real-world prop. This is a non-functional reweld job of a W.W.II Finnish sub-machine gun, the "Suomi."

Basically original parts. Filled in various missing bits on the receiver with scrap metal, welded it all up, filed it down and painted it with various passes of cold blue and plumming solution to achieve the proper well-used look. Barrel and shroud still break down, trigger pulls (and safety safes) but the receiver tube is now a solid block of metal and you can't even cock it, much less chamber anything.

Took way, way, way longer than it should have, and the machinery of a small metal shop to boot.
