Replica German WW2 StG44 / Sturmgewehr by Denix
One of our most popular replica weapons is the quality all metal reproduction of the famous StG44 Sturmgewehr.
Regarded as one of the most ground-breaking weapons of WW2, it was also arguably the world’s first true modern assault rifle. It inspired design elements of a number of post-war 20th century weapons.
Designed by Hugo Schmeisser for the 7.92 x 33 Kurz cartridge, it provided effective volumes of fire to German units in the late war period, especially on the Eastern Front.
The Denix replica is a faithful metal replica of this historic weapon with timber butt stock and the ability to cock and dry fire and also to remove the magazine.
