    10 round mag StG44

    I own a shortened mag that actually came with a vet bringback Erma Mp44 so I have no doubt if it’s authenticity. It was picked up during the Ardennes offensive and it’s obvioussly field made. My thoughts on this are some troops did indeed cut down one mag in order to have the ability to shoot...

    StG 44: 3xxx aj/45

    I love aj block haenels because they are so varied. I have a even later matching numbers 59xx aj which is all bonderized phosphate accept the furrel which is blued. Mine also sports the “plain barrel” muzzle nut delete and the same type of front sight. Interesting my is an earlier style receiver...

    Mp43/1

    Another thing to note. I believe the barrel definitely came from your receiver and while the bolt and receiver match, the carrier is from an Erma instead of Haneal rifle. The stock looks like a “b” block so while the furrel on the stock doesn’t serial match, that would’ve come from another...

    Mp43/1

    No problem. Here’s a couple pics. You can see the barrel lot number and the serial number is the small one near the front of the barrel. Like I said, i think only a block and early b block serial Mp43/1 serialized the barrel like this and then no serials. Sturmgewehr (Mp43/ Mp44/Stg44)barrels...

    Mp43/1

    Just a FYI the barrel may be from this receiver. That number is not a serial number but is a barrel lot number. You see them on most Mp43/1 barrels. Only the early a block MP43/1s had serial numbers and they were further up the barrel past the gas block. I have a matching MP43/1 a block that has...

    I think we have a winner! Definitely wouldn’t want to spend FG42 money of that.

    Thanks. I still can’t believe you sold your beautiful FG. That must’ve been some heartache after getting it all together.

    FG42 Magazines for Review

    I’ve been racking my brain on that second mag.... it’s gonna drive me crazy until I can figure it out. Pretty sure it is not a ZB mag though. And it doesn’t look German. That’s a weird floorplate too. If anyone knows it’ll help my OCD.

    FG42 Magazines for Review

    The second mag can’t be an FG magazine. If you look at that thin extended channel on the rear of the mag. Would never fit into a FG magwell. Congrats on that first magazine find. I hope you got a good deal. Any FG42 mag is rare as hell and the 10-rounder E type.. I’ve never seen one for sale. I...

    The first is an original FG42 10-round mag.. that i would kill for because my original type 1 has no working magazine at the moment.. The second one? Not an FG42 mag.. Know that for sure. almost looks like an M-14 mag. But it’s not. I know it’s definitely not an FG mag though Hope u don’t mind...

    SSD's PTR44 / BD44 In Detail The Semi Automatic MP44

    I had a question that I’ve always wondered... you obviously had real deal sturmgewehrs and the ptr44 out on the same day. Besides being semi, does the ptr44 “feel” like the original when shooting? I have an original and it is a pretty fun and unique rifle to shoot. I love the sound and feel of...

    Is your friend Clay’s MP44 a PTR44 or did he have a zf4 railed attached to an original? Looks parked. Nice photos. Thanks for sharing

    Sauer 38H Police

    Love the 38h. I have one very similar serial wise but your condition looks even nicer. I love the decocking & re-cocking mechanism. Beautiful firearm you got there.
