    Default Type 1 FG42 Heads Up

    Just received this from Rick at SMG....

    Finally there, just a few weeks away, and time to call for money. Expected delivery is by the end of this month. I have waited until everything was looking good and we had shot a rifle built of all production parts and it looks / handles really nice.

    We have really put a lot of work in the rifle and think you will be pleased. We are pretty happy with it, except for taking a lot longer time than anticipated and about breaking us in the process.

    My cashier's check went out this AM.

    Look at SMGs superb operation, and compare with the HMG stg44 goat fu*k fiasco.

    HMG decided to offer a gun that hadn’t even been made yet.... in four different chamberings. That should’ve been a massive warning sign.

    Are there any options in the way of a repro scope mount and suitable scope for these?

    Meopta make scope for the FG42G, but no one makes a ZFG scope for the FG42E

    Was the ZFG the only scope used with the E.

    I have a 1946 era ZF4 made by Meopta and a split ring new made mount for my Type II SMG.

    Once my Type I arrives I will look at machining a ZFG mount and casting a dummy scope. If it's feasible I'll offer these for sale.
