We are now getting between 1-2 thousand spam mails every day that we sift through to see that we don’t delete legitimate mail. This is a big time killer so until we get the site setup better we are going to ask that if you want to comment or ask a question etc you send it to us at email@example.com . As of today all bulk spam here will be deleted and the hour or so will shift back to making rifles. Thanks!
Here is where we would like to post pictures of customers and the things they have purchased from us – as well as a brief comment good or bad. I would like to extend this invitation to anyone who has EVER bought from us any of our products or had us finish out someone else’s “started to build”. You can even post a comment to this without a picture. This is not a “discussion forum” But bad comments go up with the good – as long as you actually owned it and can supply a serial # to legitimize your right to state the facts. : ) We should have done this years ago but oh well, now is as good a time as any I guess. Block out your face and post anonymously if you like – and if you know anyone that might like to make use of this page let them know.
One last thing, I don’t think I can set this up to post directly so try it and at worst you can make it as a comment and if approved it then posts – at least that’s the way I think it works. Rick
Can’t say how this came about past it was almost last minute and such but with permission I will say the fine folks at HMG stopped by on their way to the Shot Show yesterday. And since I have been watching all the press about what they might be coming out with and having no more knowledge up until that point than anyone else I feel compelled to share! A picture to follow – if it ever makes it from my sons phone…..
First I have to say what a nice bunch of folks that seem to have a very solid grip on a huge project. I did not get to shoot the rifle but from watching them put it together from a bag of parts and handing it to me, and then looking over the stampings and the thought behind how it all goes together I have to say Wow! Actually there is way more than that to say but it will all start coming out after shot without a doubt. I can tell you I am no stg/mp44 expert so when you tell me it is missing this crease or rib etc I will not be able to argue but what I can say is it looks awesome to me – and feels good – feels like what I think feels right. I can say our shop would have never been able to pull this off at this level – ever.
Mac knows the business of making things and where to go to get things done right and it shows. And there is no doubt in my mind after talking to him, and seeing where they are already at, as to the level of commitment to see this through. They of course will have to have time to sort through any new weapon stuff – they may already have. And these guys don’t give off any small outfit vib – this is no small time thing – looks like their intent is to build a bunch of these! Did I already mention there was more than one receiver in that bag just waiting to quickly be put together?
In closing I will say I have no other reason to post this than to share after my fortunate chance to do a hands on of their upcoming rifle. No I do not have all the info you will want – they will – we here at SMG don’t know STG’s. But once I decide on caliber I intend to own one woohoo!
Hi Rick, just letting you know I received it on Monday and everything looks great. I got the zf4 scope mounted last night. I can’t wait to try it when I get some ‘safe’ newer ammo for it. I will return the warranty card to you as soon as I can. I’m very happy with it and am also very impressed with the case you sent with it. Thank you Mr. Smith and I hope your new year is going well!
Got it, excellent work. It rivals my Sig PE57 in workmanship. Whats the turnaround for another?
Bill @ triggerwork.net – they do custom trigger work!
Got to see the fine town of Decatur passing through for the event this weekend. The FG-42 worked beautifully. Not a single misfeed! Every time I lit up the 82nd guys during a contact they all were saying ‘what the hell was that!’ They saw the huge muzzle flash and knew it was their turn to take the hit
I took a great photo just before a group walked into our ambush (attached). The photo sums it up tucked in camouflaged with the FG on the bipod.
Hi Rick, I received the manual today, Thank You. The rifle shoots great, I tried it out with different
8mm ammo everything from 198 gr. match to 150 gr. reloads. It works great and is the most pleasant
full size 8mm military rifle to shoot. The only problem I had was with some FN 8mm made in Portugal,
the bolt wouldn’t fully close ( 3 out of 40) but that is an ammo issue. I am very happy with
my rifle, It looks great and shoots great. You do EXCELLENT work. Curt
Our first contributor! THANKS! We hope to have many more!
