I believe you've got the "rate of fire" and "muzzle velocity" mixed up, in any way they are the same according to the data I've got
Rate of fire: 650 rpm
Muzzle velocity: 650 m/s
Weight (empty): 4kg
- As I've never seen the StG 45 fired, few have, my guess is it ejects top right.
- The troop trail StG 45 was to have the bakelite handguard.
- The troop trail StG 45 was supposed to be issued with the 10 round magazine, but as the Haenel 30 round also fits my guess the latter would have been adopted as standard.
Yes I got this data too, from the Swedish page. But note how on the little tableau next to the StG45 on the last pic in your last post it clearly says (small but readable): Kadenz: 450 Schuß/min meaning "Rate of fire: 450 round/minute". That's why I'm confused.
As you've said Buddy Hinton's StG shows considerable difference from the steel guard StG in the last post, I might write him an email later as I'm curious whether his version is a protoype with a troop trail hanguard or a "final version". The steel handguard looks somehow more finished: The slot for the charging handle is much smaller for example. Note also how the fire selector is the other way round.. I also doubt the narrowing bakelite handguard would fit on the "other" receiver.
Thanks for the reply, though. I'll keep on searching.
