Operating principle: Non-firing replica that can be cocked and disassembled like real FG42. This replica does not fire plug fire cartridges or projectiles, and it has been specially-designed not to be convertible to a real firearm.


The Fallschirmjaegergewehr 42 ("paratroop rifle model 1942") was specially requested by Luftwaffe for the German paratroopers after combat experiences had shown the need for specialized small arm for paratroops. Despite long list of difficult requirements the German industry was able to deliver the fully automatic and lightweight FG42 that was ultimately to become one of the influental small arm designs of the war. The lightweight Fallschirmjaegergewehr 42/I (FG42) was a cross between an automatic rifle and a light machine gun that provided Fallschirmjaegers with a powerful automatic weapon chambered to rifle cartridge. The Luftwaffe's requirements included that the weapon be a compact size (for transport inside planes), sufficiently durable, semi & full automatic, weigh no more than a standard rifle, and possess capabilities for hand-to-hand fighting, grenade launching and sniping. All these were achieved but FG42s were produced eventually only in very limited numbers and hence had little impact on overall war effort despite their advanced features.

Mechanism wise the FG 42 was considered to be a air-cooled and gas-operated weapon. The straight-line configuration of the weapon mechanism was intended to reduce the recoil of the weapon system, but due to the relatively lightweight and heavy caliber, the FG 42 was difficult to control when fired in full automatic.

Despite the limited numbers manufactured the FG42 saw combat in major battles such as the Monte Cassino, Normandy and the Battle of Bulge in Ardennes.


This is a museum-quality replica FG42 that is fully-functional and field-strippable like the real FG42. It features a functional spike-type bayonet (replica), functional rear & front sights, a cartridge ejection system and an operational cocking lever and system that uses dummy 7.92x57mm Mauser cartridges. The highly detailed and sophisticated full metal and wood construction of this reproduction will satisfy reenactors for its details & quality. Indeed, this reproduction model is displayed in renowned war museums in Europe and is everybit as good as the famed MP44 reproduction.
