"The best quality airsoft gun I have had.
Real wood stock
True dimensions and weight
I am generally impressed by the WW2 models that have been released in airsoft. Thompson, PPSH, P38, 1911's, Sten, and so on.
My use for it is more living history and reenactment, so I am going by appearance and authenticity than performance.
I will be giving it a patina finish and re-finish the stock for a more correct period field appearance, as well as changing the phillips screws to flat. Combined with a correct type sling and from all appearances it will look like the genuine MP-44/StG44.
Having used the German Real Steel version of this before as well as nearly all WW II small arms at one point, I can say this is more rock solid than the original. So little wobbles rattles or shakes. Real Steel of this period are generally very loose, especially my real steel MP40.
Its weight is nearly dead on. Without battery or pellets it weighed in at 9.5#. With battery and BB's It would be very close on the empty weight of a RS at 10# This would be a VERY heavy gun to tote all day.
Other reviews praise its accuracy, FPS and range and I leave it to them to carry the performance review.
This is a must have for the history buff or mil-sim reenactor to complete a late war kit.
I may add to this review, but these are my initial impressions upon inspection. "I got this gun about 2 years ago and this is what I thought of it.
Easy to get to battery
Magazine fits good and not to much wiggle
Looks very nice
Holds a lot of ammo
Heavy, Not a good gun for a lot of running unless you have the muscle to do so
Front sight is very weak (don't hit it on something or drop it)
Extra Mags are expensive
Price is a little much but it is full metal (except the stock)
Can't put a sling on it
All and all Very nice gun, and I would recommend it to a lot of people. "After having taken this to a few games I can thoroughly recommend this rifle to people who are looking for something either a little bit different, or are into reenacting like myself. The weight is hefty, somewhere in the region of about 11 pounds or so. But you definitely feel like It won't break on you. For me personally, I recommend buying extra mags and mag pouches for this gun simply due to the fact that my first magazine fails to feed properly but the 2 spares I got work fine. this thing shoots hard as well, anywhere from 400 to 450 right out of the box with .20g bbs. So I recommend using either .25s or getting a slightly less powerful spring.
Another thing to keep in mind is that BY DEFAULT, THIS WILL NOT FIT ANYTHING BIGGER THAN AN 8.4v STICK TYPE! I had to drill out the stock to get a 9.6v to fit in there and even then, it crunched the cables so much that the battery died due to loss of connection after only 3 weeks. So save yourself the headache and the money and buy yourself an 8.4v stick type battery!
Another thing you should consider doing is lubricating the magazine well to allow smooth transitions during reloads (if you ever need to considering they are high-caps!).
One of my favorite parts about this gun is the fact that you can wind the mags like a normal AEG OR you can use the butterfly key thats provided with each mag (they are all interchangeable of course) to quick wind it.
-solid construction (feels like a $300+ AEG)
-Shoots hard and straight
-mags can be quick winded and aern't too expensive
-good sight picture (for Iron sights that its)
-good weapon for reenactors
-Really good price for what you get!
-heavy compared to most ARs and AKs (STG 44 or K98k Sling recommended)
-very limited battery space
-only 8.4v stick types or lower allowed (unless you are willing to drill out the stock)
-mags seem sensitive to dust and dirt (I could be wrong) Read More Reviews Write a Review
