I bought a replica G43 from Japan.

I spent over £1000 including the rip off import duty !

I already owned the sight ( it came with my Airsoft MP44 !!)

Deac MP44's seem to be over £1,500 - Airsoft are cheaper.

Depends what you want it for - I re-enact & attend Airsoft events, so I have both.

As you can see, my G43 has dummy brass rounds.

As LAH650 was saying within our group we have recently obtained a 1943 dated MP43 ,as only 19,000 MP43s were accepted into the German armed forces by January 1944 it makes it a much rarer piece than a normal MP44.
The G43 is also a rare hybrid,as it is has an early receiver from ones previously rejected and used when they became short of receivers
It has kept its original 1944 G43 markings but is stamped ac 45

In "Hitlers garands" the G/K43 bible it is classed as very scarce

Both stock waffenampts are present and parts are WaA 359 for Walther at Zella-Mehlis,2 K43 mags and original sling as well.

Just returned from Luxembourg where weapons of these 2 types saw much use,remember its not MP40s and K98s all round!!!!

Hi
Its an early made G43 marked receiver with ac 45 stamped on as it was previously rejected due to quality issues and rescued from the scrap pile and reused and stamped in 45,everythind about it is correct according to Hitlers Garands book one mag is aye K43 and the other is gcy K43,and its new spec

Reidmuller, are you looking for an original stock or a new one ?

There is a chap in Germany that makes new stocks to order.
