Er... it looks nothing like the FG42, in terms of calibre, size and configuration, the only thing they have in common is they're made of steel and wood :roll:

Yeah im no gun expert I just liked the look of the FG42 and the wood and black of the other gun reminded me of it...I hadn't seen a picture of a FG42 since about 2years ago so I forgot exactly what it looked like but hey....does it matter?

I'll grant you there are some similarities, like for example the "straight through" muzzle-to-butt configuration to mitigate muzzle rise, yet the FG42 was still chambered for a full powered rifle round and thus cannot be considered to be a true assault rifle. The EM-2 took that concept further in a more compact bullpup configuration, couple with the lower powered 7x43mm intermediate power round as pioneered by the WW2 era Stg-44 rifle.

Yeah but isn't there two versions of the FG42? A rifle version with the scope thats semi-auto and the full-auto version? Well anyway we are starting to go a tad offtopic :roll:

AFAIK all FG42s could fire either semi or full auto and they all had dovetail grooves capable of taking a scope but they were rarely fitted with one, I think you're referring to the Gewehr 43 - but yeah, off topic :wink:

I think it would work, though it might not last too long.

get your hands on one of these, they're not too expensive:

The trigger's already there, all you have to do is attach the cloud chamber and you're in business :wink:

There is a really nice mod for those things here: http://www.bunkerboyz.com/phog/showthre ... 357&page=1

Doing that mod would keep the pressure around 800psi instead of it dropping instantly from a 12gram.
