I do recall observing the muzzle flash from the FG 42, though - a ball of fire about a foot in diameter, clearly visible even in broad daylight!
Here is my Fg42 -
It is a Krieghoff 1944 parts kit, that has been reconstituted as a 922r compliant semi-automatic - (it is not one of the ones made by SMG in Texas)

Can anyone recommend museums in Japan with Type 11 LMG, Type 3 HMG, or Type 10 Grenade Discharger? I have an interest in Taishō era Japanese weapons, but I am not too familiar with the museum collections in Japan.
