I hope they make it an MG3 instead of an MG42. Main reason: I have no WWII German loadout, it would be expensive to make one. But a Modern German loadout is easy and inexpensive to put together.

But this is aimed towards the WWII crowd, also, that's the gun right up there. I doubt they're going to up and change it, now.

You call an extra $5-50 dollars expensive?!
You obviously haven't been airsofting enough to call echo1 expensive. At least be glad you don't have to pay $2k plus for it like with the Ultima mg42.

The minigun by CAW is about $3000, so no surprise there.

There won't be a $5 to $50 difference! When the E1 M249 came out it was about $100 more, and came in a crappy case, with no box mag!

The only crappy part is that I bet the MG 42 will come with an 8.4v or 9.6v, if any, which atleast for me, and considering the gun, is unnaceptable. You will have to put $100-$150 into it to bring it up to the right rate of fire. You're gonna BURN through ammo if you do that though...

That's because CAW is a airsoft company based in Japan. AGM is in china.......
E1 m249 is $100 more but it does come with a box mag, I had one and it came with it. No crappy case though.
The crappy case was A&K.

They are pretty much the same gun externally.
The only differences are the rear AA sight and the feed tray with belt holder.
In fact the early MG3's were just WW2 mg 42's with a different feed tray and barrel to shoot 7.62mm or .308.
If you were the set a MG42 and a MG3 side by side you really would have a hard time telling the difference
I have read there are still a few WW2 receiver guns in service but I don't know if there is a way to confirm it or not.
I think it is a great testament to the overall design that is is still being produced and used 67 years later.
I recently read that the Italians have experimented with a kit to convert them to 5.56 mm or .223.
That would be insteresting to see

The muzzle booster is different on the later MG3s and not all MG3's had the folding AA spiderweb sight. Mg42's do still pop up in Africa, central and eastern Europe and Asia.
The Spanish CETME Ameli is a .223 LMG that closely resembles the MG3.

Don't ever mention COD EVER it is the most sorry game ive ever seen. I get sad when I decide to play it and hear them say give me another clip! And I find out they are using a thompson or m1 carbine. Or the dumb tank on tank battles.. and the m3 rounds piercing tiger armor. I laugh or get mad.

They could add a quick-change barrel on their to acess your barrel and hop.


And I have studied the 2 guns closely to avoid asking this question but I cant. What is the difference between the mg3 and mg42? And yes I know one is around 70 years old and the other is around 60 years old but what is the difference?
