    Shoot a 1st model and then shoot a second model and you'll realise the change.

    Except it's far to awesome for CA. God, you'd probably get the death penalty here (and they'd follow through on it) if you shot a gun while skydiving.

    Except that the FG-42 had a stupidly high rate of fire, and fired a cartridge far too large for the weapon's size.

    It was designed because when the Falshimjagers went into Crete they got their ass handed to them because the MP38s they were carrying were out ranged.

    This was their attempt at a kind of carbine idea, except they stuck with the big rifle cartridge, I believe it's the 8mm mauser that it fires.

    On automatic it's definitely a bit much, kind of like the m14 was. But on semi auto it's a hell of a combat weapon.

    I think there's a company making reproductions now, I was poking around last year and remember finding someone making and selling them.

    Definitely bad ass.

    isn't 10% (or 1/10th) of 10,000, 1,000 not 1,100?

    Because they lied to you, I think. IIRC, the FET rate was 11% last I checked.
