By 1942 Germans had working assault rifle design Mkb42 (H) that had passed it's combat debut but before it could go to mass production it needed design refinement and Hitler's approval of which the latter was negative. To avoid Hitler's wrath production was continued under new designation Maschinen Pistol 43 (MP43) and after minor modifications MP44 was introduced.

Due to the glowing combat reports and numerous requests for MP43/MP44 from field commanders Hitler changed his mind in late 1943 and subsequently the program received high priority status. Hitler then named the MP44 as Sturmgewehr 44 (StG 44), apparently by his instinct!

MP43, MP44 and StG44 were mostly used in the Eastern Front until the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944. It appears Waffen-SS was able to scrounge best of the production leaving little to the Wehrmacht, but in course of the war the StG44 appeared even in remote battlefields like the Kurland "bridgehead".

Ammunition was in short supply as the 7.92 x 33mm kurz cartridges had not been used before in vast quantities.

Field reports indicate that the increased firepower of individual soldier helped Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS units to fight off superior enemy forces. Captured examples were used by Allied soldiers , but many of the 400,000+ MP43/MP44/StG44s were never effectively distributed to the front line units as Third Reich infrastructure was collapsing under weight of Allied offensive just at the time when production had started to reach significant numbers.

Since MP44/StG44 is extremely rare gun in modern days few have had the possibility to experience it in person. This extremely well made replica allows you to grasp the concept and feeling of the gun. 1:1 size, full metal and wood parts, German serial numbering and many other details can be found from this replica MP44.

This is gas blowback version that produces very real like shooting recoil thanks to the new system. You can shoot 6mm BBs to the ranges of 50 meters making it possible to use in airsoft re-enactment games. Magazines have been made very realistic also from the inside, they will take only 30 rounds each.

AIRSOFT & AIRSOFT GUN GUIDE
Basic information about the hobby

Airsoft explained
Airsoft is paintball-type recreational game that is played in indoors (CQB), outdoors and at organized mass events that range from World War II re-enactment to fictional Special Forces operations. The common point of all of these events is the use of airsoft guns and airsoft gun accessories. Airsoft started as a hobby in Japan back in 1980s and is now common in many other countries.

Unlike in paintball BB hit from airsoft gun doesn’t leave a mark, but stings a bit. This allows use of smaller and more lightweight pellets that hurt less and make less mess. This also allows completely different design of the airsoft gun when compared with paintball guns. Many of our Japanese made airsoft guns are highly detailed products that have incredible attention to the detail. You will be surprised about how well some of these airsoft guns are constructed.

Airsoft guns explained
Airsoft guns range from affordable light powered 10-year old toy guns to serious hobbyist custom guns that cost several thousand dollars a piece. They are either spring, gas or electric operated and have special features such as various blowback mechanisms or accuracy barrels.

In most countries owning airsoft gun doesn’t require license or special arrangements.

The typical accessories you need for airsoft gun
The basic items to have to get started are BBs, power source (battery or gas) and protective goggles or mask. If you use Tokyo Marui Automatic Electric Gun (AEG) you will need battery charger for the batteries unless you already have one. It is also good idea to have battery discharger to maintain battery lifespan by discharging the batteries before re-storaging them after use.

Shoei gas blowback guns require special tanks (please see accessories section).

Maintenance and ease of use
Airsoft guns are quite maintenance free and simple to use. Occasional injection of silicon oil will be mostly enough and basic external cleaning after use in outdoors.

Safety
Fundamentally airsoft guns are designed for paintball-type gaming and hence are in safe power levels as long as protective gear is worn. It stings a bit through your clothing when BB hits you. Use of protective facemask is mandatory to protect face and eyes. The pellets are lightweight 6mm and 8mm BBs that weight typically around 0.25g each. Effective range is generally about 20 meters for pistols, 40-50 meters for submachine guns and 50 meters for rifles and machine guns.
