Daniels Rapid-Fire Carbine

We had a reader send us some photos of an odd submachine gun that he was looking for more information on. Well, it’s a new one to me – perhaps someone reading this knows more about the history of the piece?

It appears to be a copy of the Bergman MP18, and the magazine well is marked “Daniels Rapid-Fire Carbine” and the selector lever is not like a Bergmann, or other contemporary subgun I’m aware of. It is a registered, live machine gun, and the owner says it is dates 1929 – does anyone know more about these guns?
