Shoei bring back the FG42 Type I

Well, let’s face it, you’ll probably never get your hands on a real one – and even the real-steel semi-auto-only replicas are quite expensive and hard to come by too…

So its a good thing that Shoei are going to do another production run of their fully-functioning (but non-firing) museum-quality FG42 Type 1 replica gun.

FG42-Type1

At the current time they are taking pre-orders / reservations for the next production run, and the number produced will be determined by the number of pre-orders / reservations they get.

I was the very proud and happy owner of one of these about 12 years ago, when I used to be involved in WWII Fallschirmjaeger re-enactment, and I can vouch for the exceptional quality and historical / collectable value of these.  In fact, Shoei even feature a photo of me in my Italian front FJ impression on their website.  :-)

Happy Valentine’s Day
