My father grew up in rural early 1950's Czechoslovakia and fondly remembers finding a military rifle out in the woods with his buddies. They had fun polishing it up, bringing it back to life, and taking shots at trees with it. Word got out pretty quickly though and a local police officer came knocking at his home asking for it be turned in, and so it was... Incredible to think that this was a common childhood experience for so many generations of Europeans following the war.

the best thing I found in a old house were a bunch of silver coins from the 40s. but can you imagine buying a old house and finding a stg in the wall. for those of you who dont know a company is reviving the stg 44 to shoot 7.62x 39 55.6 and other rounds. they are a bit ppricy but if you want a cool looking rifle pick one up. ebay also sells replica "worn" stg stocks according to the company those fit on the rifle.

Ian Mccollum and Karl Kasarda of Inrange TV on Youtube have been following development of the HMG STG for quite some time. Its been neat to get updates on these guns. Not sure if I will be taking the plunge, but I'm sure glad that there is tangible interest in breathing new life into these old war horses.
