Interesting thought. The FG42 was only about an inch and a half longer than an M4 carbine. It would seem like a perfect weapon for the panzer-grenadiers who were transported by half-track or truck. If the original model had been designed for ease of production and they had the capacity to crank them out quickly, you could see the Heer saying "We want those". With a proliferation of FG42s and then STG44's the German squads would have had some awesome firepower.

The FG 42 was very advanced (like so many of Germanys wonder weapons) it remains elusive as a airsoft offering as it was quite tiny in demensions and very unconventional. A cool weapon indeed. Schmittys from way back when remains my favorite custom gun to date. What ever happened with the cad design machinest guy who was coming along nicly on his?
Please don't tell me that like so many he got to the feeding and actually firing part and got stuck. This is what hapens with 90% of these efforts unfortunately.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
