Very Nice!!
Now tell me is the FG-42 & MP-44 the real thing? How do they shoot. I've always thought the FG-42 was a real cool rifle they should have made it in 7.92 x 33 they would had a real winner.

Unfortunately they are very well done clones, that shoot the same ammo as the originals.

Thanks for all the kind remarks. I enjoy the study of military Firearms and doing good Gun Porn.

You have an awesome collection. I've admired your other posts as well.

Of all the rifles you've owned, what are your 2 or 3 favorites ?

My main focus has always been on the German stuff. My favorites as far as collecting are the G/K43 and the K98, for shooters I like the G3, FAL, AK and M1/ M14 in that order.

Thanks,
