MG42 Machinegun Replica
Thanks to G&G company another treat for historical replica enthusiasts and fans of historical airsoft has arrived on the market. A long-awaited replica of a well-known, pressed into service in 1942, Maschinengewehr 42 - MG42 machinegun replica. A construction that in the hands of soldiers of Third Reich (and not only!) has spread fear along almost all fronts of WWII and as the years went by has become legendary.
At first glance (and feel!) it is apparent that this is no toy, but a solid piece of work. The size and details of the original were imitated as best as possible, furthermore the full-metal construction has allowed to provide a significant weight - almost 11 kg without a loaded magazine. Polymer parts include: pistol grip linings (as in the live firearm original) and ammo belt from the magazine.
The replica is made mostly from steel, namely: the bipod, barrel cover, flash hider, entire receiver, magazine and all mechanisms connected to barrel release and reloading are made from steel. The outer barrel was made from a zinc and aluminium alloy. Gearbox was made from 6061 aluminium with the use of CNC machines. Polymer parts include the feeder/magazine finish, round dummies and pistol grip.
The stock of the replica, exactly as is the case in the live firearm original, was made from natural, lacquered wood. The Hop-Up adjustment ring is located under the dust cover. Solid, steel bipod can be lock and folder under the barrel. As the live firearm original was adapted for shooting down planes, so does the replica feature appropriate “L-Kimme” iron sights.
In order power airsoft “Saw of Hitler” (as it was called by Allies) a dedicated, specially designed and reinforced gearbox was installed inside the replica and inside it, among others set of steel gears and metal 10mm oil-free bearings. Features a 490mm long and efficient inner barrel. The gearbox features a quick spring change system.
MG42 is fed with an electrically spun box magazine that is a loyal imitation of the original. Its casing was made entirely from steel. The magazine can store up to 1700 BBs and is powered by a 7,4V battery.
The set includes:
- Li-Po 11.1V 1100mAh, 12,21Wh, 20C battery
- Li-Po 7,4V 430 mAh. 3.18 Wh, 20C battery
- charger adapter
- charger with a balancer
- ammo belt with round dummies

It is the spped of bb, while its leaving the innerbarrel of replica. This speed is measured in FPS (Feet Per Second).
1 FPS = 0,3 m/s
1 J = 99 m/s
1 J = 326,7 FPS

Indications v2, v3, v6 does not mean the level of advance, but only shape of gearbox skeleton which was used and selected by the manufacturer depending on the capabilities of the body of the replica.

|Diameter of bearings in GB [mm]:|
The length of the replca is measured between the two most distant points of each other. Different models have several of these values, because of its design allows to increase or decrease it length (eg. folding stock or extended flash hider).
|Inner barrel length [mm]:|
This is a value that includes the weight of the replica, magazine and other accessories that are include in set without a battery, charger, cleaning rod, etc., etc.
rechargeable battery is characterized by high efficiency
current-carrying capacity, but there are disruptive effect on memory.
Should be unloaded and loaded in the full cycle, ie, it is recommended
to fully discharge, and after unloading must charge the battery
immediately without leaving it for a long time in a discharged state.

Hop-Up system is used for overclocking bb during the shot (putting it in rotation), through which, it extends its flight path. Acting laws of physics make that bb lift up, while the gravitational force take it down. Appropriate adjustment of Hop-Up, will compensate for these two factors, which result in long and straight flight for longer distance and be greater focus shot (to improve accuracy).
Blow back is a simulation system of the cocking lever - it imitates the work of it as the equivalent sharp. This system raises the realism and adds a lot more experience during shooting.
