    Well seeing as how the FG42 was only a ww2 era gun for the most part.

    I would suspect if you had a transferrable FG42 you'd break the 100k mark, and then if you wanted to spend the $400 on a ZF-4 scope to make it a sniper if you had the mount.

    The FG42 was pretty much a fallschirmjager specific item. Not many were made, not many were brought back.

    And god damn they're loud as shit.

    I knew one guy that found an FG42 in a river/lake in I think Belgium. But it was way beyond repair due to 60 years of water damage.

    Im sure he could have sold it to atleast get a g43 or some other semi ww2 sniper.


    I nevy people in europe that find stuff like that or people that find unexploded rounds in the woods.

    Maybe this is what the guy found:

    although its a g43, it could possibly be what they found. But still incredibly cool

    I know someone who has one of each type of the two type of FG42's made during WWII. They're both authentic and transferrable. Needless to say, they are locked away in the bowels of his collection. I think there were around 800 of each type made. As far as WWII weapons go, they really are pretty damn rare.
