Shoei MG42 Blowback



Full-metal replica of German WWII MG42 machinegun. Features almost identical construction and finish as it's real counterpart, but what is most amazing is it's strong blowback mechanism that allows very real shooting experience! The recoil is sufficient to move the gun even when installed to real Lafatte tripod.

This MG42 has been manufactured in similar way as the original MG42's were. Highly skilled in sheet-steel stamping techniques the Japanese manufacturer recreates Wehrmacht MG42. Great for airsoft re-enactment combat games, display, collection and even movie productions.

The gun inlcudes the following:

  • 250 round "magazine"
  • Steel bipod
  • 5 fake dummy rounds
  • Metal belt link
  • 2 feet of 6mm hose to connect to a remote system
  • A SP Green Gas Adapter (This is to be used with special cans of Green Gas from Japan*)

*Please note, we do not carry the special green gas cans from Japan. These are not available through Airsoft Extreme. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Hopup is adjustable and is located on the right side of the gun, the panel next to the barrel can be removed and a large brass knob rotates to adjust hopup.
  • The 250 round magazine is located under the feed tray. Simply open up the feed tray and you can access the magazine.
  • Rate of fire is not like the real MG42. It is more like an M60.

Please note that there are 2 types of external gas sources you can use. If you are not familiar with them, the first is CO2. The standard for most paintball guns on the market. It is cheap, easy to use and available at any paintball field or store. HPA or high pressure air is a step above CO2. It does not freeze on extended periods of full auto fire and is much more consistant than CO2. The bad part is, the tanks are VERY expensive and finding places to fill them can be a challenge. Most paintball fields and stores can fill them, but not all.
