The Bergmann MP18 was designed by Hugo Schmeisser in 1915 at the Bergmann Waffenfabrik factory. It was designed to fulfill the requirements established by the German Rifle Testing Commission. When the weapon was completed it was designated the Maschinenpistole 18/I or MP18/I. The weapons finished and the parts all fitted by hand at near commercial grade quality. The MP18/I went into production in early 1918 using the 32rd snail drum magazine used in the P08 Luger. Issued in the final stages of World War I at least 5,000 MP18/I were built and issued before the war ended. The weapon was outlawed for German Military use by the Treaty of Versailles but small quantity was issued the Weimar Republic for police use. The Weimar Republic weapons are converted to use MP28 stick mags as the 32rd drum was also banned by the Treaty of Versailles. The design was improved upon and manufactured in Belgium for export as the Schmeisser MP28/II
