Roger, the recoil is not bad for a 8mm. Compared to a K98k. I have fired both models, and have handled this particular rifle. I just fired a full auto M14 a couple of weeks ago, and it's recoil and controllability are far worse than the FG42.

I was surprised to see the video online.

The guy in this video is a very skilled shooter, and I have seen his videos before. Most who fire full auto arms don't do it properly.

Sergey, 3 hours north of me (in Russia that would be like a trip to the grocery store..) there is a large MG shoot twice a year, with 100s of full auto weapons on the line. Come on over!!

Seems can be really very fun especialy when you drive there on osm car and then back without
PPSH is the first submachine gun which I shooted from many years ago and definitely one of the best for combat on ww2 days, fast and easy for use machine, but FG42 is the perfect for it aims and dream..
