I believe the real MP 44 fires semi auto from a closed bolt and full auto from open bolt, so this would be fine as it would appear from the bolt cocking handle position to be in semi auto mode.


No, closed bolt on semi or full ;)

Plus it's actually better not to touch the bolt as it interferes with the hopup, unless you file it down a fraction as reprted elsewhere on the Comrade in Arms website.

Some slight size differences to the original MP44 but something that most of us can live with.


What are those differences though? If we aren't using these for airsoft, but reenactment, we want to know about cosmetic differences...

The fire selector is higher up than it should be.

And the angle of the pistol grip is out slightly to accommodate the motor :)

The main differences between this replica and the real MP44 is the selector lever slides instead of being a pivot type, the grip is slightly out in shape and size, barrel has a slight downward position, pistol grips are metal not wood, the dust cover on the ejection port opens to show gears and not a bolt and the very slight dimension differences between this and the real thing, plus the weight is a few pounds lighter. The stock has a bit of fit wobble, which is a feature of the real thing like the MP40 too and some fixing pins are a bit loose, all easy to sort out. Still, a real deact MP 44 is around £2000 and this one is around £200, so I can live with these imperfections :D Even the excellent Shoie replicas which are around £800 are also off in some areas of detail. Certainly a good buy for what you get in my opinion, I am totally happy with mine and if you want the extra correct detail it is worth modding it yourself, give is a weathered finish and from a step back you would have a hard job telling the difference between it and the real thing unless you were a real expert and knew where to look. At a reenactment event if you saw a guy walk past with a worn or weathered one of these you would think, wow, he has an expensive MP44 deact. Also this replica produces a loud Bang, bang, bust fire, noise on full auto which does pass as a good sound effect, better than shouting bang, bang with a deact at a public show display or going click, click. :D

I bet you I wont. The misplaced selector switch and mishaped left side pistol grip are just too obvious.
Dont get me wrong, I have one on the way but I wont be compromising my re-enacting standards by passing it off on a display.
It's a typical Chinese product, almost right but not quite.

My AGM MP44. Still needs a bit of work on the stock as I'm not happy with the colour.
