RWA MG34 AEG Now On Pre-Order
Making a choice for your airsoft Christmas gift just got harder with RedWolf Airsoft announcing that they are taking pre-orders of the RWA MG34 AEG... "The MG34 was considered to be the world's first general-purpose machine gun and was the finest machine gun in the world of its time while under the deployment of the German Army. It was first tested by German troops aiding Franco's Nationalist in the Spanish Civil War. The MG34 has an effective range of over 2000 meters (>4400 feet) and had the ability to sustain a rate of fire up to 800-900 rounds per minute. It was light enough to be carried by a single soldier giving it a substantial advantage over other machine guns.
It took part in many wars, but that information is all boring. It's now time to get into the juicy tidbits of the MG34. When it comes to 1-1 replicas, you won't find anything closer than the RWA MG34. Everything was meticulously designed and crafted from metal and wood to best replicate its Real Steel counterpart.
It comes in a box that you'd think wouldn't fit the MG34, but it comes in 4 pieces which needs to be put together like Lego. There's the main body, the stock, magazine and the bipod. The manual will explain how to set it up but a RedWolf review will also be up soon so you can visually see how it's meant to be put together. Once it's put together, it's quite the looker isnt it?
The internals is something you wouldn't ever see from any other airsoft AEG. It's a custom gearbox especially designed for this MG34. It has 7MM bearings and has magic going on inside to make it run like a dream. It has a custom made motor, also designed and crafted by the RWA magicians. The battery it comes with and uses is the Large Deans PEQ 1300mAh 11.1V 20C Lipo Pack which fits perfectly inside and can be bought if you want some more. The barrel is made out of Aluminium and brushed to make it look like steel. The magazine, bipod and upper receiver is actually made out of steel and doesn't need any further brushing. Believe it or not, the wood is real wood and was made to look as authentic as it could in relation to the Real Steel version.
But enough about the bits and bobs. How does it shoot?! How can I put it simply? It shoots like a dream. At 30 rounds per second, it does what a suppressive weapon is meant to do. Accuracy? Who cares! It's a suppressive weapon, you point at a certain direction towards your enemies and it'll mow them down. Will they feel it? It really depends on the power restrictions of different countries. When we send it somewhere, we take into account the country's power limits for airsoft guns and what the customer wants. You want it at 460 fps? Sure, so long as the laws in your country permit you to use it!
This is as close to real steel as it gets although it runs on electricity. You won't find another MG34 that imitates the Real Steel as much as this one does. WW2 fans, this is what you're looking for!
