WWII Weapons Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Sorry to sound harsh, that was not my intention. Thank you for the reality check. I actually am not registered on the WW2AA boards so I have not seen this evolve, and I am not saying that FG42 is ######, it's quite amazing in fact. I just wanted to let people know their not alone!

Well, I just finished sexificating my M1911 clone. Here's some pics - I'll try and get better ones tomorrow when the sun is up.

It's hard to see, but I've done it in Gunmetal to make it look, well, metal, and the controls are in matte black. It's got a very subtle two-tone effect going on that works really well. You can't tell it's not metal till you pick it up. :D

Nope, FG42 was semi and full auto, it just wasn't very practical on full auto ;) But yes, quite why the Luftwaffer command insisted on a 7.92x57mm select fire weapon with a maximum capasity of 20 rounds is anyone's guess...

 

Makes about as much sense as making a full auto only rifle that fires .30-06 and uses 20 round mags...

If that's the springer Luger, i'm pretty sure it's either Academy or Hap Dong (ask Snowman, he's got my old one)

Whatever it is I've had it for years. Pretty much useless as far as matches are concerned but it's a pretty cool little collector's piece nonetheless.

I have a friend who does costom work building this for me, this it as its coming along...

 

The initial mockup.

The muzzle brake fresh off the lathe

note that the cocking handle, dust cover, grip frame, and rear sight are all real steel parts!

The grips and stock are being made out of cherry wood, it will have a side mounted electric drum magazine, the charging handle moves, and the barrel is going to be removeable on the side somewhat like the real steel.

 

He is debating to put these into a limited production so if you think this might be something your interested in send me a pm, otherwise comment and be prepared for more pictures as he informed me it will be done in about a week!

I will, one day, own one of those CYMA M1A1s (The Cybergah version, though...I'm a sucker for trademarks.) with a wood kit, like the one in Dukeman's post...that, is one b-e-a-utiful SMG.
