FG 42, Fallschirmjäger Gewehr 42

Assault rifle used by german air force paratroopers during WW2,it uses the same ammo , 8x57 mm IS, than the other german weapons K98, G41,G43k, MG 34 & 42 hence giving quite a strong recoil unlike the STG 44 using a 8x33 Kurz cartridge with mild recoil.the very low barrel and mechanism axis makes it a controlable rifle especially that semi auto shooting is done closed bolt hence very accurate and full auto , open bolt to help cooling that means bolt stays open every time trigger is released between bursts.
