Wow just incredible.
Arguably the most advanced battle rifle of its time.

An original transferable FG42 recently sold at RIA for $260k

Forgotten Weapons has a few very good videos on both the original and the SMG repros.

Awesome machinery, possibly the most advanced design of WW2....and my 2nd favorite magazine-fed longarm.

Really nice piece and most have no idea how old it is....

8mm German Mauser= 7.92x57mm. Usually a ~170gr bullet at ~2600 fps.

30-06= 7.62x63mm. M2 ball was a 150gr FMJ at ~2500 fps.

Very similar in ballistics. I have a Kar98 in 8mm and an M1 Garand in '06; and barnyard ballistics testing (ie. watermelons, water filled milk jugs, pumpkins, etc.) show both cartridges to be in the same class. Neither would be frowned upon if the need arose to defend my homeland in 1940...or for that matter, 2014

And a side note that SMG offers a version in .308; which would be my choice.

I agree one bad ass looking weapon..would like to fire off couple hundred rounds and check results. Surprised it isn't on Feinstein's ban list..for you know us veterans are all crazy.
