German FG 42 Type II Museum Quality Replica Non-Firing Automatic Rifle by Shoei of Japan
Replica Item: The FG 42 (Fallschirmjägergewehr 42, "paratrooper rifle 42") is a selective-fire 7.92×57mm Mauser automatic rifle produced in Germany during World War II. The weapon was developed specifically for the use of the Fallschirmjäger airborne infantry in 1942 and was used in very limited numbers until the end of the war.
It combined the characteristics and firepower of a light machine gun in a lightweight form slightly shorter (but considerably bulkier and heavier) than the standard-issue Karabiner 98k bolt-action infantry rifle. Considered one of the most advanced weapon designs of World War II, the FG 42 influenced post-war small arms development, and many features of its design, such as general shape, stock style, gas-rotating bolt operation (itself copied from the Lewis gun) and sheet metal and plastic construction were copied by the US Army when they developed the M60 machine gun.
Japanese company Shoei manufactures the highest quality, most accurate machine gun replicas on the market today. However, their FG42 has been out of production for many years. When it originally came to the market the retail value was $2500. Now that no more are available these have become nearly impossible to find and deactivated original FG42 are never encountered and the one that did emerge in the UK in the early 2000s sold for over $30,000.
This example is Serial #00475, with a 20 1/2" barrel. This replica is not capable of being fired. The rifle is made of metal parts which are in excellent condition and have very little to no handling wear. The top of the receiver plate is marked "fzs/u", similar to the original German markings. The laminate wood forearm and buttstock are excellent and the rifle features a brown plastic pistol grip. Other features include flip-up front and rear sights, a folding bipod and a spike bayonet. The original magazine is missing but an original MG13 magazine is included to complete the look. The magazine is dated 1939 and is Waffenamt marked in multiple locations.
This is a quality 1:1 scale copy of the FG42 paratrooper machine gun popular with modern re-enactors. Shoei manufactured these replica guns to be an exact copy and to be disassembled and operated the same as the original. These are all steel, everything moving as needed, fully cocking when the charging handle is pulled back, and trigger to fire the bolt forward. The best of the best in replica dummy Firearms which has now become a collectible in its own right.

Muzzle of barrel has RED PLUG as required by US LAW. Not available for export or in some US locations. This is a Blank-Firing Only gun that can never be engineered to fire a live round therefore no license of any kind is required to purchase this item. These are constructed of an alloy totally unsuitable for use in a firearm and any attempt to convert these blank-firing or stage prop pistols to take ammunition other than those listed above many cause the pistol to explode and could render the user liable to prosecution, and or subject them to great harm.
International Military Antiques, Inc., nor any representative thereof, can accept any responsibility for injury or damage of any description arising from intentional or accidental use of these guns. Persons not qualified to do so should not attempt to disassemble these units. USE WITH CAUTION!
BLANK GUNS ARE NOT TOYS! Never ever point your blank gun at another person (except for movies, plays etc where that type of behavior is expected). Even though they don't shoot a projectile they can be mistaken for the real thing.
Do not carry your blank gun in public. It should NEVER be carried on the street, hidden on your person, or left carelessly in your car. Do not leave it where it is accessible to unsupervised children or irresponsible adults. If a police officer sees you with one he will shoot first ask questions later. These blank guns look and sound real.
Wear ear protection when firing blank guns. The 8mm round is very loud and can damage hearing. When using a blank-firing, stage prop pistol, always fire them with arm fully extended and at a safe distance from any other person. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. NEVER point any blank-firing or stage prop pistol at any person.
When blank-firing stage prop pistols are fired, gunpowder gas is vented forward and sideways through the front of the cylinder, NOT from the muzzle. This gas is hot, and may contain small particles of powder debris. At arm's length it dissipates harmlessly into the air, but if your hands, face or other parts of your body are in close proximity to the vent hole it can cause burns, cuts or abrasions.
