PSA is resurrecting the STG-44!

by Hop

STG-44 reproductions have been in the works from Hill & Mac Gun Works for a while, and now Palmetto State Armory is onboard to bring it across the finish line! The STG-44 reproduction is part of PSA’s new “Battlefield” line of retro inspired guns. There area few modern touches such as a new magazine pattern, and a tweaked gas system to help make the gun more shootable, but the look and feel is faithful to the original.

    I've always been curious how manufacturers can manufacture a faithful reproduction of the Stg44. Dumb question: but do the blueprints still exist?
    In any case, that's neat, and I wonder if we'll one day see polymer Stg44 mags ..because why not? :)

      @xavier Tear down several copies, scan them, find an average size for each part. Figure out available metals that will perform when forged/cast/stamped/machined. Build and test until reliable.

    I have a .22 version and it is almost to the ounce the same weight as the original. Next to my M4 "clone", it is a heavy weapon !! :-)
