The StG 44, or the Sturmgewehr 44, introduced in 1943 was the first modern assault rifle. It’s a rifle that’s on my wish list that I will never get to own. They’re pretty rare and very expensive, however you can try and snag one from the huge cache found in Syria if you want to risk it. There is the .22lr version from ATI that’s pretty sweet, but with .22lr still in short supply I probably wouldn’t shoot it that much if I bought one. I, like many others, would love a modern StG 44 copy in a more readily available caliber, well Hill & Mac Gunworks says they have one in the works. The HMG Sturmgewehr will be available in 5.56/.223, 7.62×39, .300 BLK and the original 7.92×33mm Kurz. It will use standard AR magazines and accept all standard semi-auto HK-style trigger packs. It’s due out later this year, pricing is TBD. Check out hmgunworks.com for more info.
