By late 1941, the German military was in great need for more general-purpose machine guns, as production of the MG34 was not sufficient to match the brutal needs of the Eastern Front. The MG42 design has been accredited to Mauser-Werke, who made extensive use of sheet-steel stamping production techniques to quicken the production time and lower the costs. Thanks to the innovative locking system, the MG42 was a reliable and efficient weapon that could fire an incredible 1,200 to 1,500 rounds per minute. The tearing and ripping sound that the MG42 produced with its high rate of fire contributed to its nickname among Allied soldiers: “The Hitler’s Buzz Saw.”

This airsoft replica is manufactured in a similar way to how the original MG42s were. Highly-skilled in sheet-steel stamping techniques, the Japanese manufacturer creates the Wehrmacht MG42 the way that no replica maker ever has done. The Shoei MG42 has been added with a strong gas-operated blowback mechanism that recreates the weapon’s blowback when it fires the lightweight 6mm ammo to distances of up to 50 meters. This is great for reenactment combat games. WWII Guns provides an English manual for this gun and a free package of extra dummy rounds for the ammunition belt.

Gallery 1: Muzzle & barrel jacket
Notice the beatiful shape of parts, the well-made cooling holes of the barrel jacket and the mount for air-defence sight (available as optional part).

Gallery 2: Bipod
Notice the intricate details of the bipod. The bipod is fully functional and attaches and removes like real.

Gallery 3: Receiver, cocking handle, feed tray, rear-sight, barrel exchange lever & grip assembly
Notice the extremely well-detailed receiver, functional cocking handle (operates exactly as in real MG42), superb stamping job of the rear-sight, real wooden grip of high quality and the functional barrel exchange lever. One of the photos display the inside mechanism for blowback and BB firing. The mechanism is not present in display versions although trigger remains functional.

Gallery 4: Ammunition belt & dummy cartridges
What would the MG42 be without the ammunition belt? Here you see real 50rnd ammunition belt attached with dummy cartridges. Real 25rnd ammunition belt and ten (10) dummy cartridges are included with this replica. Spare ammunition belts and cartridges are available as optional accessories.

Gallery 5: Stock
The stock is made of real wood and is extremely well finished with all the butt groovings in place. It can be disassembled in seconds - exactly like in real MG42.

Gallery 6: Side profile
This MG42 model is so large that it is difficult to photograph it in its entire beauty. With its impressive authentic 1:1 size it does make a really impressive display piece and is even suited for combat gaming. Some have wondered the high price of this replica, but once one understands the extremely high quality of materials and workmanship, superb small details and all the realistic features, the price will turn out to be very reasonable in the end.

Please note that there are two types of external gas sources you can use. If you are not familiar with them, the first is CO2. The standard for most paintball guns on the market. It is cheap, easy to use and available at any paintball field or store. HPA or high pressure air is a step above CO2. It does not freeze on extended periods of full auto fire and is much more consistant than CO2. The bad part is, the tanks are very expensive and finding places to fill them can be a challenge. Most paintball fields and stores can fill them, but not all.
