Our take: The most highly anticipated and authentic World War II replica is finally here! The NEW AGM MG 42 (Maschinengewehr 42) full metal airsoft AEG machine gun is truly a thing of beauty. Highly regarded for its durability and simplicity, the MG 42 has a proven record of reliability that has finally found its way into airsoft. This truly unique 16-pound, airsoft medium machine gun, based on the infamous weapon used by German Armed Forces during the Second World War, has so far proven to be a ruthless AEG when put to the test. From the receiver to the ventilated handguard, this rugged World War II replica features a hefty, full metal build. This includes the rugged, folding bipod, mock charging handle and flip-up iron sights. For added authenticity, this machine gun even comes with a real wood stock for storage of mini type or LiPo batteries. Similar in design to its real steel counterpart, this MG42 AEG can easily deliver a high volume of high velocity suppressive fire. This MG42 AEG, configured to fire in full auto only, shoots up to 420 FPS (w/ 0.20g BBs) with an impressive rate of fire (use higher voltage batteries to increase ROF). Thanks to an auto-winding drum mag, you have up to 2,500 rounds at your disposal to provide cover fire and light up your targets. While the MG42 machine gun by AGM is geared for actual airsoft applications, this replica is just as perfect for World War II reenactments.
NOTE: This airsoft AEG comes with a rechargeable battery, however, you will need four (4x) AA batteries to power the 2,500-round auto-winding drum magazine.

Battery Charger Recommendation: Airsoft Megastore recommends the use of a smart charger to avoid overcharging the battery (overcharged batteries may cause decreased airsoft gun performance and may shorten battery life significantly). Smart chargers not only shorten charge time significantly (up to 800% faster charging) but also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
