Q:

What is an Airsoft MG42?

A:

An airsoft MG42 is a gas- or spring-powered pellet gun modeled after the German machine gun. Airsoft is a combat simulation game that utilizes realistic-looking weapons that fire small plastic pellets.

The MG42 was among the most feared infantry weapons used during WWII. It could fire an impressive 1,200 rounds per minute and was equipped with a barrel capable of being swapped out in a mere six seconds. This notoriety led to several airsoft gun manufacturers producing pellet guns visually identical to the original weapon. They are particularly popular with groups that don authentic gear and uniforms to recreate historic battles.
