Germany’s World War Two FG-42 Rifle was its most creative.
This airborne troop machine gun was the best of all worlds.
Watch this video and see a rare style World War Two reproduction go through some ammo on the range.
When Nazi Germany needed a fast shooting lightweight machine gun for their infantry, the FG-42 was up for the job.
This SMG reproduction FG42 is chambered in the .308 Winchester caliber, and it’s a sweet shooter. Several shooters get to try out this impressive piece of history, and all are impressed by the lack of recoil.
The FG-42 was copied by the U.S. military to become what is now the M60 machine gun.
