The FG 42 is one of my all time favorite assault rifles, it's unique and innovative design continues to give this rifle an aura unlike many others. Specially designed and build for the Fallschimjager, a German airborne infantry unit in World War II, the rifle's design lives on with items like the flip up sights on the AR 15, which owe their beginnings to the FG 42. Very few have been able to fire a FG 42, ever fewer have fired a full auto FG 42, and I consider myself very lucky to be in that group. If you are someone who loves historic weapons this is a must watch.
