    Default FG42 semi

    Hey guys, I was wondering how good the SMG 8mm FG42s function? Do they feed, fire, and eject correctly??
    Thanks, Titan

    LOTS of information in this very sub-forum.
    Some P38 "experts" are yo-yo's who, for some reason lost on me, can't or won't accept the truth when it's staring them in the face.

    400 rounds with 3 f2f but that was found to be a single mag. Other two mags have been flawless. I posted the data for a potential buyer because Wilhelm was having trouble with his so it’s a data point. Mine has some of the improved parts so I haven’t had his issues, and I believe he’s resolved the issues he was having as well.

    Some of the early ones (including the one I own) had problems, Rick fixed them under warranty. I suspect the new ones are good as gold.

    After repair my FG42 has been flawless.

    Mine has been perfectly reliable since the bolt was reworked by Rick.

    I had a few fteís the first few hundred rounds. It was from the first batch. Itís been flawless the last 500 or so. I think it just had to be ďbroken in.Ē

    That looks to be an original stock.

    Yes original stock and couple other things. I grinded some more detail into the receiver and finished the rifle mismatched phosphate.
