For one thing this just isn't the rifle, it also includes a matching scope & mount (extremely rare) AND the grenade launcher...which I will have to check my "Death From Above" book...is incredibly rare as the K98k launcher isn't compatible. As far as shooting them, they are notorious for basically shooting themselves to pieces and not lasting more than 5,000 rounds before self-destructing. I do own one of the SMG Guns semi auto FG-42's in .308 and it is an awesome gun to shoot...and is MUCH cheaper to boot.

Anyone know the production number for the FG42? Best I could find was 3,000-5,000 total.

Rare to Scarce.

The biggest irony of this is that if the Hughes amendment would to be repealed these wealthy machine gun collecting guys would fight the repeal tooth and nail. It would reduce the value of their investment by prob 80-90% in one day. It would only hurt a few 10,000 collectors at most but would be great for the rest of us.
