Buddy Hinton is a well known collector. His home page is sturmgewehr.com. He also posts on Gunboards.

For you who do not know, the ATF pics are from the display room of the US governmental agency Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms who when they confiscate weapons either destroy them or keep them for display/study. ATF is the governmental agency most feared by US gun collectors.

I really think those are replicas and what is up with this supposed Stg 45 folding stock variant?

Hello
Look here: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewIt ... m=41092416 This folding stock version is probably a fake - I think this was discussed before. Notice that shoulder stock can't be pulled in place while the magazine is in.

Regards

Ak-47 has the same problem btw, but i also think that the Stg45 in the auction is a fake.

Folding stocks should be able to clear the magazine

Post by Rogerbutthead » 29 Mar 2006 01:08

The folding stock AK47 should clear the 30 round magazine. I haven't had problems - as long as the buttplate is aligned correctly.

I don't know if Buddy Hinton is the guy with the FG42 collection. I have heard rumors and pics supposedly from a guy who has a collection that no museum can match. I don't know who he is. Certainly, if I was him, I wouldn't be advertising it in public.

Ehm sorry could you explain it for me pls? Do you mean that its possible to fold out the stock when the magazine is in the gun? On the picture it seems that it isnt working but i could be wrong. A little explanation would help. :wink:

And is it a folding stock of an Ak-47 on your picture? It looks quite different to the pictures i had posted above.

The pic is of an AK47 folding stock. If you unfold it in that position, the magazine should clear through the gap in the stock.

I never tried it with a 40 round magazine and certainly a drum magazine won't clear it.

The person that owns the Stg 45 in that picture also owns 13 FG42's. I had the opportunity to look at his collection in Feb. No, he does not live in Texas, and his collection is amazing.
