Here's session 3 of our deep dives with Mac from HMG regarding their reproduction StG44, the original StG44 and a number of other topics:
What is the percentage of parts that are 100% interchangeable with the original? Where should the line be drawn between defining something a reproduction versus “inspired by”?
Deep dive into the extractor, angle cuts and case head design of original ammunition vs PPU.
Replacing the buttstock with original or other reproduction buttstocks?
Reproduction versus inspired by?
Any chance for a full auto version or are the regulations too much of a pain in the arse?
Any chance for a “tactical” or 2017 version? Keymod? Picatinny rails? Etc?
The similarities between the MP18 and StG44 recoil spring.
What are the HMG StG44 barrel specs? Chrome lined?
Discussion on the ability to change cartridge chambering (calibers) on the HMG StG44.
With the backlog of orders, how long will it be for people at the back of the line to get a StG44 once production starts?
Is there any way to financially support HMG while the StG44 engineering effort is still on going?
How did MAC get into firearms design? Advice on how to get into the gun industry?
