StF8 done and gone. What a successful comeback of a legendary (crappy) OP. Thanks to everyone that came and helped make this one of the best.

Post Update:: Shoei MG42
Shoei has given some updates on the progress of their WWII era MG42. With design still being in the prototype stages there is no clear price point or release date. Also of interesting note; the initial run of this design will be build to order. Pre-orders are the only way to get this gun in your hands upon release time. Shoei has commented that if big enough demand shows itself that they would not be against mass producing them; however with an unknown price point that remains to be seen. Here is a video of the inner workings and a link to the original article.

Mildly concerning. WWII airsoft just doesn't have the pull to fully support guns like this. At least they claim a "more attractive price" than the air model. Hopefully affordability will make it available, but at the same time I'm almost ok with preordering one and having a rare collectible piece.

Having that thing mounted on the War Pig would look sick. However I would much prefer this model since it would probably be more reliable and last longer; albeit cost 3x as much :D
