I would like to see this in the flesh as i have a few denix models (bought really cheap) and to be honest they are crap but i know they have recently improved a lot, the pics of this look good and i would love to own this modfel but i cannot justify the price normally but this one seemd very cheap.

Had a look first hand at the new Denix MP41 and MP44 in the shop the MP44 is NO GOOD. I'd rather pay the extra $$ to get a quality Shoei ones. No working mechanism in the mag, butt storage space cannot be opened, ejection port cannot be opened, but the charging handle work and trigger goes click and that's about it. Basically a piece of wall hanger. Don't like the surface treatment at all but I guess that is typical Denix type quality.

The MP41 instead looks quite decent. If you have Denix MP40 then you will know how it feel the only different is the wooden lower rather then pistol grip type lower. I actually find the woodworks are VERY impressive, also if you have the Denix Garand and M1 Carbine then they are kind of similar. The ejection port is left open like the Denix MP40 as in the real MP40. Bolt works and flies forward when trigger pulled.

I just can't get pass that their MP44 ejection is not open, what a waste.

I will be buying this MP41 and looking for a Shoei MP44.

I have gone against what everyone thinks, and I have just received my new Denix StG44. (not MP44, whatever the difference is)

There's a couple of reasons behind this.
Firstly is, we have to grab whatever we can down here in Australia.
And.....since the Shoei MP44 is basically a wall hanger, as I believe that it doesn't fire PFCs, then why pay the extra money for one, when a Denix will do the job just fine?

A quick run down on what I found.
The quality of the castings have certainly improved. It looks good and feels good. It has some weight to it.
The woodwork is also good. Nice and finished off to a pretty good standard.
I think the black finish to all the metal has also improved, as to me it almost appears to be blued.
I think this StG44 appears to be as close as possible to a real gun, although I have never seen one. Smile

The only thing is that the ejection cover is cast into the side, so does not open, and some of the buttons and knobs are the same.
Magazine comes out with the release button. You can pull the charging handle back, and then release it forward, then pull the trigger. It will disassemble to a certain degree, close to an original.

Overall, considering the conditions here Downunder, I like this StG44.

It is the most important thing - that you like it :-)

I need to take a look at one in a shop somewhere to get an idea of what is Denix recently up to.
As for Shoei - yes, wall hangers. Even those rare FG42 with conversion kits are not recommended to fire anymore due to weak metal, and blowback issues with long and heavy bolts.

On a funny note: in USA "cowboy" gun replicas that you see in souvenir shops are mostly... made in Spain = Denix :-)
The "made in" seems to be displayed proudly as if to say it's better than ubiquitous "made in China". Still, it's weird that these are not made locally by specialised workshops, as certainly there seems to be a large market. All those "western history" and "ghost town" cities are sprinkled with shops and tourists, after all.

Yes, overall I like the look and feel of the Stg44.
It's letdown is that it doesn't do much more than look good.
If only Denix would spend a little more time on these replicas, like the buttons need to work, and the ejection cover needs to open.
But like I mentioned above, the build quality has improved in my opinion.

Compared to the 1911 I bought very cheap many years ago, this gun is very much improved, especially with the casting.

I would also just like to mention that there is no intention to offend anyone with my photos using the nazi symbols.
I just thought that to make the photos and gun more realistic that it would look better this way. Smile

Nice pics, thank you - does the mag have internals?

Your rifle looks great in the photos, and you cannot beat the price.

Pit.

The magazine is pretty much solid.
Take a look at this short video I found.

Ozzie you have my sympathy! Evil or Very Mad
At least in New Zealand the gun laws allow us to have bb guns like this AGM StG 44 - the parts move and the ejection port drops, and the magazine is not just a solid lump. It was a great wall-hanger and "plinker" in my under-the-house bb shooting gallery! cheers

The Deix sells here fro about the same price as an AGM bb model.



I sold it to buy some other modelguns - and plan to get a Shoei StG44 in due course....Gun City are out of stock so I will have to buy from overseas.

There's no doubt about it that the Shoei would be a far better model gun to have. But since they are basically wall hangers too, I couldn't justify the prices they are going for down here. And that's if you can find one.

It's quite strange that Jap model guns are banned from importation into Australia, yet the Denix are allowed.
