The Shoei FG42 (Fallshirmjägergewehr 42) Type 1 is one of the most beautiful replica weapons we have ever seen! Designed specifically for the Paratroop regiments, it was made to be as powerful as a light machine gun as possible but with SEMI AUTO function too! It needed to be short and light, in fact the request was "as close to the KAR98 as possible!" :p Umm, yeah right. It also has a fold down steel bipod and a super cool and very nasty spike bayonet which is deployed at the push of a button and pulled from the gas tube, reversed and clicked into place. It is completely made of steel, no alloy or plastic to be found here. The grip/heatshield is the correct wood and beautifully finished to match.

Lovingly hand crafted in Japan, this iconic and extremely rare weapon is stunning, with the care and attention to detail so obvious. This is the non-firing, fully field strippable model and comes supplied with TWO standard 20rd steel box magazines - twenty rounds (2x replica cartons of ten) are supplied with this package. The dummy rounds are bespoke 7.93cal and machined from solid brass and copper. they cycle correctly through the replica mag and are ejected from the gun as you cycle the bolt. The magazines are exact replicas of the real thing and as such, real mags also work in this replica gun - if you can find them.

If you want to see a real FG42 running, then have a look here: BOOM!
