FG42 (Fallschirmjägergewehr 42)
The FG42 was produced for the Luftwaffe paratroops and appeared in Italy and France. The magazine fed from the left side and it had a bipod and integral bayonet. This was a remarkable weapon, being designed to replace the rifle, machine gun in the light role and the sub-machine gun.
It has been reported that only 5000 were produced and it is surprising that the Germans did not make more of them. Some have a wooden butt, whilst others have butts of stamped steel.
High recoil, but a damn powerful round and high rate of fire made it vicous at close range.

Jul 24 Word of the Day
It’s an acronym standing for Can’t Remember A Fucking Thing. It’s usually used to describe embarrassment at being unable to remember someone (CRAFT moment); going onstage as the lead in the latest theatrical performance and your mind goes completely blank (CRAFT situation); the next morning after a night when you got pissed as a fart and woke up in bed cuddling a traffic cone and a string of fairy lights wound round your prick.
