Looked really nice until they showed the fireselector, wtf?

Them 44's are really sweet.... a Shoei one is one of my dream modelguns.

I really want one of these but price is the problem, saw a shoei one at a ww2 reenactment converted to 9mm blank very very nice. the chinese airsoft one is supposed to be pretty good its n AEG full meta wood and for something like 199 seems like a great buy, not seen one in the flesh though.

Even though the AGM electric MP44 isn't a GasBlowBack Airsoft gun, it's still worthy of a mention here just because it IS an MP44 Very Happy

I will, however, move discussions about it to the Airsoft section to keep the Shoei category specific to that Manufacturer.

The AGM MP44 seems to be proving extremely popular with reenactors.

I've seen photos of one in particular having been blued and lightly "weathered", it's wooden stock re-finished in a darker shade and it looks rather stunning.

I believe the cocking handle can be moved the full disance to simulate cocking unlike the AGM MP40 so conversion to simulated blowback might be easier...

I'd like one, but I might just wait to see if they launch a GBB version in future Very Happy

I just found this topic. And yes I have an Airsoft StG44! [or MP44]

I've compared it with the real deal with a friend's collection and it's impressively similar externally and compares in weight (about 9 lbs vs 11 lbs).
The Airsoft mags will fit the magwell of a real StG44, but not vice-versa. The real mags are too big in thickness.

Apart from the obvious selector switch and the dummy cocking handle the only other thing I don't like is the wood colour.
I've had one go at re-staining it, but it's still not dark enough to look like the real thing. So I'll have another go at it soon.

Even so, it's a nice gun to own - until I can afford a Shoei! (NZ$2500!)

After staining and with a repro sling - un-oiled


Before


If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask and I'll try to answer or find out.

Wood colour is clearly off in the first picture :-)

This model makes a good "beater" that you can just carry around, without worrying that it gets dinged.
As a collector I wouldn't take Shoei out for a reenactment ;-)

I agree with you!
I just checked Gun City's price, and it's dropped to NZ$1999 ( $2000 really!)
I might be tempted if it can drop a few hundred more! Very Happy

Try Ricky of Tokyo Model - I think they still have a couple left Very Happy ...

Gun City's price simply ridiculous (but save you all the hassles though)...
