The MG42 is a 7.92x57mm Mauser general-purpose machine gun designed in Germany and used extensively during the second half of World War II. It was intended to replace the earlier MG 34, which was more expensive and took much longer to produce, but in the event, both weapons were produced until the end of the war.
It comes in a rugged box that you'd think wouldn't fit the GMG42, because it comes in 6 pieces that need to be put together like Lego. Installation is extremely simple and takes only a few minutes. There's the main body, the stock, magazine, the belt, bullets, and the bipod. Tim explains how to put it together in the RedWolf review which you can watch in the link above. As you can see from these photos, the gun simply looks stunning. A lot of effort was put into making sure the external finishing of the gun was as realistic as possible.
The GMG42 has a custom gearbox specially designed for it and can easily be removed from the receiver making maintenance and the ability to upgrade as easily as possible. The battery it comes with uses a mini Tamiya G&G 11.1V Lipo battery which fits perfectly inside the stock. The autowinding drum magazine is powered by its own battery which comes included and can be wound by pressing the button on the top of the magazine. Spare drum magazines will be sold separately. The barrel is made out of steel and can be removed for easy maintenance.
The GMG42 can hold its own in terms of picking out targets but really - for a suppression weapon, accuracy is not your main concern! You point in a certain direction towards your enemies and it'll mow them down with a hose of BBs. This is as close to real steel as it gets although it runs on electricity. You won't find another GMG42 that imitates the Real Steel as much as this boy does. WW2 fans, this is what you're looking for!
