AMAZING attention to detail! This rifle looks, handles, and feels exactly like the original! All parts that appear to be metal - are. All parts that appear to be wood - are. When you slide the stock in place it feels tight and solid with ZERO wobble! Takedown is completely without tools or any special tools. The stock uses a standard push-pin and when removed the entire trigger housing assembly swings down allowing the bolt group to be removed...VERY "military" to say the least! The steel, spring-loaded, steel ejection port cover is a nice touch that shows just how far the designers went to create authenticity. The gun also functions flawlessly...I've shot a variety of high-velocity loads and so far experienced zero failures of any kind. The STG also has a last shot bolt hold-open that works...one could and should consider this for their SHTF planning!
The rifle came in a sturdy wood crate with everything locked down by wooden keepers. The "rumor" is that wooden crates will only be part of the initial offering which means they are likely to become collector's items at some point. The fact is this STG-44 is highly likely to become a collector's piece...it's just that well done!
