Wonder where the ammo for the Stg44 is coming from? Iirc it was a 7.92mm short, but could be wrong. I also read somewhere on t'interweb that ammo was in short supply for the Germans when was in service, so doubt there was shed loads surplus stashed away somewhere after the last unpleasantness.

Guess if you weren't in the infantry it would go over your head like a stack of blankets at 30,000 feet.

We found shitloads of STG 44 in Baghdad. one of Saddams sons palaces near BIAP had dozens. Somewhere I have a pic of an ODA all holding Stg in each hand.

ISTR the East German border guards used them well into the 1950s, so someone in the Soviet bloc was obviously making the ammo post-WW2.

I saw a video the other day with a storeroom full of STG44's in Syria. From what I hear they came from ex-Yugoslavia (with ammo presumably!).

I loved my STG 44's in Medal of Honour; European Assault.

Much better than the Tommy gun or BAR.

there's been M1's floating around Lebanon for decades, that one looks quite tidy too....

the East Germans made it from the end of WW2 to atleast '88 looking at some headstamps. the Yugos the same, theres a few munitions companys (mostly in eastern europe) who do production batches to this day.

semi-auto stg-44's are made for civvies today, I'm looking into bringing some into the UK as section 1 stright-pulls along with FG-42's (this is a LONG term plan due to licening requirments and legal issues and quite a while away)

GSG are making a semi-auto .22lr version, it will be in UK shops soon. if someone isnt allready importing it.

Neah it's the lens making it look longer.

Thats another AK, it's got the curly mag and the sov block sling with metal rings, you can also see the gap between the front edge of the mag and where the hand guard starts.
