MG 42 Coming Soon to Evike

evikemg42

North American airsoft retailer Evike recently posted a picture of two Maschinengewehr 42 replicas on their Facebook webpage, claiming they will have the AEG soon. The real MG 42 was a general purpose machine gun used by the German Wehrmacht during World War 2; inspiring the modern German MG3, American M60, and Belgian MAG, the MG 42 still retains the record as one of the fastest rate of fire single-barreled man-portable machine guns.[1] Japanese airsoft manufacturer Shoei is accredited as one of the first to replicate the MG 42 for airsoft use, however numerous attempts have been made within the past five years from multiple companies, including Zeta Lab and recently G&G Armament, to produce a more economical version. Setbacks such as the arrest of ACM and CYMA owners, along with confiscation and temporary suspension of airsoft gun production for companies A&K, JG, and DBoys, in 2009 had halted what would have been a certain release for the airsoft machine gun. Though Evike has not disclosed a price or release date in its Facebook post, airsoft shops in China at this time are allegedly accepting pre-orders for an MG 42 for the 30th of September 2013.
