MG42 Machine gun at The Range 702


The MG42 is known as a highly reliable and easy-to-operate machine gun that was extensively used by the German army during World War II. For a gun that uses full power service cartridges, this weapon stands out for its unusually high cyclic rate averaging about 1,200 per minute. The MG42 makes a distinctive sound when fired, leading to many nicknames including the “singing saw” or “bone saw.” This air-cooled, belt-fed, open bolt weapon is a lighter version of its machine gun predecessors making it more portable and versatile. The functionality of this weapon had an obvious influence on other gun designs, including the M60’s belt-feed mechanism and the FN Mag’s trigger mechanism. You’ll definitely want to try firing this machine gun if you’re looking to experience the capabilities of a historic and influential firearm!

Great assistance from staff!

Attended the Range with my brother and his sons and father-in-law for our first time (my brother’s second) and had a great time. Super equipment and assistance from the staff. As a car Moody’s novice who’d never even touched a gun before, it was very interesting and exhilarating, and at 60 (this was a birthday thing for me!) it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to make some noise!!
