I recently met a bloke who is writing a biography of Mikhail Kalashnikov and Kalashnikov told him that he had seen German soldiers using the MP-43 and had been impressed by it, but he didn't copy the mechanism, just the concept and the layout. He actually designed the prototype whilst he was in hospital after being severely wounded, and I don't think he had access to any German weapons while he did it.
