I have recently decided to acquire my first full auto and am completely new to the Class 3 "Process". I have decided I want something German, and was thinking about an MP-40 or an STG-44 or maybe an MG-42 if I could find one, but no one I have talked to has seen an MG-42 for sale since the 90s. My question is, are these weapons, being as old as they are and will only get older, will they hold up to time and are they worth the hassle of tracking down parts and ammo if I get an STG-44? I know that I will turn every head at the range regardless of if I get a WW2 weapon or a more modern HK fleming conversion. Any and all opinions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
