Royal Nonesuch visited Mark Serbu and got to play around with a WWII vintage Sturmgewehr 44, marked MP44 and put the 71-year-old select-fire through its paces.
This iconic weapon, from the mind of Hugo Schmeisser, was the first of its class to see widespread adoption.
Sure the gun in the video above had a few hiccups, but what do you expect out of a relic? Sadly, the StG44 of Mark’s is a Post-86 Dealer Sample and in non-transferable to mere mortals unless you have an agency letter.
How about let’s repeal some Hughes Act. That’s some hope and change we can get behind.
