It looks similar to Ultima MG42, but not quite the same. In the mean time, pictures will have to do. Click to supersize, with thanks to my well informed friend.

Because the super Japanese marketing team of decided
Hey if we put and RAS on the gun we can mark it up fo 50 dolla
from owriginal pwice and sell it to silly American military phanatics

Now say it in a cheesy Japanese- American accent
and you will see the anser.

No the real reason is because so you can add a scope or a red dot silly rabit

maybe they were looking at an MG3 when they where designing this one? the MG3 being the modernized version of the MG42, it MAY have a scope mount. it's always a possibility....

I Think itís an MG2.(two) The MG2 was basically a Left over ww2 MG42 re chambered for the 7.62mm nato round, which would explain the MG42 blunderbuss style Muzzle. The Post war modern style Drum mag also means its not an MG42.

And yes, you could mount optics on the MG2 (two) If the weapon is not equipped with a rail, even a Brain dead monkey armourer could attach a rail. And I believe some of the (very) late war versions of the MG42 had a way to mount the Vampir IR system that Germany developed very late in the war, although that Equipment was extremely rare, and certainly didn't use a weaver rail.

I am not 100 percent sure, but I believe the MG3 is just an Anti-aircraft, or aircraft mounted version that is lacking the but stock. I think the most common version still in use today is the MG1. Which is not a conversion, but leaves the factory chambered for 7.62, and doesnít have the Cone on the end of the muzzle.

Of course, someone could look it all up on the internet, and find out for sure.

Lets get a few things straight here:

MG42
  • German World War II machine gun
  • Chambered in 7.92x57mm Mauser
MG1
  • MG42 produced by Rheinmetall
  • Rechambered for 7.62x51mm NATO
  • Retained wood stock of the MG42
MG2
  • Wartime (Pre-1945) MG42s chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO
  • Consisted of all MG42s that remained in service with the Bundeswehr up until 1958
  • Still retained wood stock
MG3
  • Chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO
  • Synthetic stock
  • Improved feeding mechanism
  • AA sight
  • Ammunition box from which belt feeds from
  • Capable of using drum magazine
  • Of various manufactures

Have a nice day .

Don't forget, gentlemen, that this little number is 1220mm long.

I can see me whacking that into every tree I run by.


EDIT: by way of comparison that more than half a foot longer than an M249 MkII

If they come out with that i'm buying one, they should make sure it has a very, very high rate of fire, as the real MG42 had a high rate of fire.

I would like to see these China manufactures come out with a line of AK100's.
