    Originally. He uses a .308 barrel for now. Easy to change up though.

    Looks like like a blast. I'd love to see that bump-fired.

    Wasn't the MG-42 the one nicknamed the German "buzzsaw"? And that one you're shooting - semi-auto, right?

    Yes. My son is quite the fabricator. He bought one that was cut to pieces and slowly refurbed it. While the Stens and the Uzi took a few hours each, he spent 35 hours on the "Buzz Saw".

    It shoots a few rounds, then wont chamber. So he has to recharge the thing a few time to get through a belt.
