Reiben (author)kennyboy 22008-12-09

kennyboy 2 (author)Reiben2008-12-09

how old are you becuase if you are older than 14 you must not have a life if you're still playing with knex

CraigDH (author)2009-03-12

can i had some? the mag is rubbish and the whole gun looks bendy

dynno97 (author)CraigDH2009-03-12

OLD MODEL. thats like V2 my better one is V3 And no it is pretty stable.

TheDunkis (author)2009-03-10

My stock isn't even my stock. This was my first posted gun and already it compares to your "best". It wasn't the most realistic but neither was yours. Your sight is too low. Yours doesn't even use the magazine. Mine actually shoots knex pieces. Mine is indeed full auto. In fact mine is selective fire. You can shoot semi or full. Yours is overall messy. If I were to redo my Stg44 (which I was planning on doing at one point) it would crush yours.

TheDunkis (author)2009-02-20

I don't really find it any better than mine. No matter I'm making a new one which I'm hoping to capture every detail.

dynno97 (author)TheDunkis2009-03-08

Now mine is officialy better

TheDunkis (author)dynno972009-03-08

Lol whatever you keep telling yourself that. Considering this is my first replica I could hardly care less if someone tops it. How about you try to show up my UMP-45?

dynno97 (author)TheDunkis2009-03-09

I dont build Post-WW2 weapons

TheDunkis (author)dynno972009-03-09

...then how about Trauts's tommy?

dynno97 (author)TheDunkis2009-03-10

I have no hinge pieces.

I_am_Canadian (author)dynno972009-03-10

Now, what makes you think that, eh?

dynno97 (author)2009-02-20

A word of advice, try to make the mag curved.

TheDunkis (author)2008-02-18

dangit! i didnt think anyone actually tried making an mp 44 before. Well anyways heres my version of an MP 44 with an attempted curved magezine that works quite well actually although the last round will jam. I've got a video too. I've updated it a little since then though so it looks even more like the real thing. I was able to change the rbg mechanism from just semi auto to full auto without losing the single shot option. All I have to do is figure out how to slow it down and modify the rest of it just a little more and it will be one of the best guns. Yours is a good attempt though.

kennyboy 2 (author)TheDunkis2008-07-25

it's not called a mp44 it's a stg44 there is no such thing as the mp44

TheDunkis (author)kennyboy 22008-12-06

Really old sorry for reply but I just want to state that yes there is such a thing as the MP44. That was the name of the weapon before it was approved by Hitler. It was secretly produced under his nose. Actually it started as the MP43 and then I think it made a short transition from the 43 to the 44 and then Stg44.

kennyboy 2 (author)TheDunkis2008-12-09

and he named it sertgwhemhier just so everybody woudn't try to develop it and it came out very late in the war

TheDunkis (author)kennyboy 22008-12-09

Alright where is your source? Go here. For the sake of pointing out some of the important things to save everyone else time-Even the term "assault rifle", is no more than a translation of the German term Sturmgewehr alright so I was right the name was Sturmgewehr which means storm rifle or basically assault rifle. Next point.
In April 1944 the designation of all MP-43s was changed to MP-44, with no actual changes made to the design. At this time there were plenty of glowing reports from the German troops fighting with MP-43s and MP-44s at the Eastern front. Seeing these reports, Hitler finally approved the mass production and issue of the new “wunderwaffe”, and in December 1944 officially christened it the Sturmgewehr, or Assault Rifle, 1944 (StG.44 Alright so I was right once again it was known as the MP43 and switched to the MP44 before it was finally approved by hitler and turned into the Stg 44.

You're right though it came out too late in the war.

kennyboy 2 (author)TheDunkis2008-12-09

ok so lets start this over firat of all you never mentioned anything about mp43 to mp44 and it does not mean storm rifle it means asssualt rifle it says so in you're paragraphand you forgot that hitler sentenced one of his scientists to death for making them and i watched a docomentry about it and one of hitlers scientists helped the americans and i figure it would be pretty accurate information if it was one of his scienists PS:I would like to end this silly fight and i apologize and please do not take this next question personnaly it is a straight out question, how old are you???

TheDunkis (author)kennyboy 22008-12-09

Lol your source happens to be a documentary that you might not remember all of completely? I found that a lot of things in those are just people's opinions. Either way have you been reading? Two of your comments ago in this chain says: it's not called a mp44 it's a stg44 there is no such thing as the mp44
I just said that actually the MP44 did exist. It was the Stg44 before being called. So I'm right Stg stands for Sturmgewehr? That literally translate as Storm Rifle but their context of "storm" means the same thing as "assault"
I never intended to fight just to give out the correct information...which you kept shooting down. I happen to be 15 which you could have easily figured out by looking at my profile page. I happen to be very interested in weapons and WWII so put them together and...yeah.

TheDunkis (author)TheDunkis2008-12-09

Woa sorry I didn't say that right. I meant it was the MP44 before being the Stg44 (and MP43 before the MP44 just because of year change I take it)

kennyboy 2 (author)TheDunkis2008-12-08

no becuase hitler made it named the sturgemhuier 44 then the ammericans called it the mp44 becuase it means machine pistol and mp44 was easier

TheDunkis (author)kennyboy 22008-12-08

wasn't it sturmgewer which was storm rifle or basically assault rifle? And the germans called it the MP44 which does indeed mean machine pistol or in other words their sub-machine gun because they had to produce it secretly. Hitler didn't like the whole idea of an intermediate round so to hide the gun they called it a sub-machine gun. When they finally showed the gun to Hitler again and he approved of it he then named it.

kennyboy 2 (author)TheDunkis2008-12-09

yes but the gun was actually developed by hitlers right hand weaponns scientist and hitler thought that they had no time for that but he did approve he just wanted the A bomb first

TheDunkis (author)kennyboy 22008-07-25

Congragualtions on replying to one of my oldest posts and telling me something I already know.
