I have a question concerning the M3 9mm conversion.
Here in Italy many M3 were delivered to partisans, especially on the Langhe area (South Piedmont) and the central Liguria. These deliveries took place on the February/April 1945 on SOE controlled areas.

The question is that withnesses tell that these guns were not .45 born and then converted with the conversion kit but were produced in 9mm.
Also the markings on the receiver told 9mm and were different from the common SMG.
Was the M3 ever build in 9mm on wartime?
