Boxed STG44

I really like what was done to box in above post. Is it possible that the sling be left on the rifle and the components be stored in their respective areas with no interference? Taking the sling one and off each time can get "old" very fast. Also another magazine would fit nicely in the slot where the sling is stored.

Pictures I have seen in wartime movie footage showed real STGs being issued to troops and the covering of the STGs was just a few boards protecting the rifle. Nothing fancy like a box. One has to remember this was late in the war when many short-cuts were taken to get the equipment to the troops as fast and cheapest as possible.
