Default STG 44-I'm planning to buy one and need a review

Hello all!
I'm planning to buy a STG 44 but I don't know it well.Some people say that it is a great rifle, some other say that buying it equals to wasting money.

I would like to hear an review from someone who owns it or, at least, knows it better than the average guy(I mean...I would like to hear/read the opinion of an expert or has shot it a lot).

Thanks in advance!

Are you talking about the true German STG44 Sturmgewehr? Or one of the modern .22lr copies? I've heard the modern .22s are good quality and a blast to shoot. Getting your hands on a true STG44 would be difficult, then you have to get your ATF tax stamp, and 8mm Kurz is hard to find.

They are great weapons. There are 2 problems. 1st unless you hand load ammunition is hard to find and when you do find some expensive. Parts are hard to find and VERY expensive. I have an all matching 90% MP 44 that I will not shoot for fear of a broken part and a matching MP 44 becomes mismatch depending on what part is broken. They are much nicer to shoot than an AK 47.

Must be nice to have near 20k to drop on an original stg44 if that's what you're talking about. I'm not even sure about the price but I could swear (without googling) that a functioning stg44 would be worth easily over 15k. And yeah, like the other guys said, you'll need a tax stamp for a full auto. Honestly though, if you do find/buy one, please post pics so I can drool over it.

I was already warned (the price).I was thinking about buying a yugo captured one(many people don't know that the rifle was still used by yugo paratroopers till the end of the '80)-I hope to save some money.

I checked online for one for sale in the US. I was unable to find any. I believe the prices are creeping closer to $40k for a transferable example.
The third world still has and uses stg's. Some were made after the war and others were captured. Germany built a half million during the war.

Default STG/MP 44 Prices

For an all matching 80%-90% STG/MP 44 non dewat all matching the prices run from 18K to 20K. Most of the ones I see for sale do not fit the above criteria and sell for 16K-17K.
My 90% all matching, non dewat Mp 44
