    Initial impression of the Matrix (S&T) MG-42

    It's the same gun but in 7.62x51 NATO rather than 7.92x57 Mauser. Cosmetic differences include: MG3 bipod lacks the height adjustment screw that the MG42 has. MG3 flash hider looks different MG3 rear sight is graduated out to 1200m, the MG42 sight goes out to 2000m The MG3 also lacks the flip up AA-rear sight of the 42. There are separate AA-sights for the MG3, but they are not mounted on all guns. Feed tray is shorter (shorter round) and the way ammo boxes attach to the side is different. Top cover is also slightly different, but not by much. Newer MG3's have polymer buttstocks and grip plates, but older bakelite furniture is still correct. Blued steel is correct for both guns, while some newer MG3's have a dark gray parkerized finish. After the war, MG42's were slightly modernized into the MG59 and put to use in the West German Bundeswehr. A bit later, the 7.62 MG1 was developed, which then turned into the MG3. Most current MG3's were purpose built like that, and are not refurbished MG42's. All German MG3's are manufactured by Rheinmetal, while many other countries use guns manufactured in Turky and Pakistan. The Yugoslavian M53 is a straight up MG42 clone (same caliber too), the only visible difference being the wooden buttstock that's a lot more chunky than the MG42 and MG3 buttstocks. M53 parts (and demilled M53's) are a lot cheaper than original, genuine MG42 parts. So if you want real steel parts for your MG42, old Yugoslavian surplus is what you want to look for (except for the fugly M53 buttstock) *goes to put more rails, m4 stocks and magpul stuff on my Shoei MG3*

    Well, the MG-42 is just a few cosmetic parts away from a modern MG-3. I hope someone will release an IdZ-kit for the S&T

    From my trip to Berget 9: I'll try to get some short movies up during the week. I didn't get a whole lot of action captured on film though, as my camera was either out of battery or it had a full memory card whenever stuff happened. It's mostly just driving.

    WE G39C GBB

    Yeah, my nozzle came pre-trimmed from RA-Tech (I bought a "custom" jobbie from them) and I had to lengthen it with a piece from an old pen to get it firing below 350 with the NPAS. Amazingly it's holding together, though I really really want a new non-molested nozzle for it...

    WE G39C GBB

    So, with the NPAS opened all the way my G36K chronos at ~490 with .2g BB's. All the way closed it's at 390-420. I need it to clock in at sub-300 fps with .2g BB's for CQB. How do I accomplish this? It came with all the original parts in a small bag, so I can install the original floating valve, if that helps. Someone mentioned shimming it to reduce fps? Where should I put the shims? It's also got an RA-Tech inner barrel and hopup. I don't know how much of an impact these parts have.

    WE G39C GBB

    Yeah, the cosmetic gas block and piston. On some photos it kinda looks real (ie; on the G36 and G36K the block itself is further out on the barrel than on the shorter G36C), but on others it kinda don't. Some good pics of the WE G39K without its handguard would be nice.

    WE G39C GBB

    Does anyone know if The WE G39 and G39K have the correct length gas piston and not the shortened G36C-piston? Also, I see RA-Tech have developed an NPAS-set for the G39 series, but I haven't seen it at any retailers. Where would one normally buy RA-Tech parts? I'd really like one of these G39's, but I'd like to have it fire at less than 350fps with .2's. Preferably less than 300 for CQB.

    Where did you get that black plastic/bakelite stock?

    Great shot of me at an event in Sweden this weekend: And yes, I believe that white streak leaving the barrel is a BB Cute Deer, DarkLite :3

    Looks like it would have been properly shaped normally. It does seem like you wear it too low in the back, and too high towards the front, though.

    G&P GBB M4A1 family

    If that magically happened, I'd take the WA, as it has more aftermarket support, and Inokatsus forged receivers are probably the coolest thing I've ever heard of in airsoft. Also, the WA has a more realistic bolt (it looks more real with the bolt pulled back). However, your scenario won't happen, as the WE gas system is just much more effective than the WA. Less gas is wasted, etc. So even if the WA was as cheap as the WE and had a similar metal body and cheap-ish mags, I'd still pick the WE. If I was in the market for a gas-in-the-mag gun, that is. External for me, thanks
