The Sturmgewehr 44 was originally developed in Germany during World War II, and is well-known for being one of the first modern "assault rifles" to see major deployment. In honor of the Sturmgewehr, German Sport Guns has released the GSG Schmeisser STG-44—a replica model that's dialed back to semi-auto and chambered in .22 LR. It's being imported to the United States by ATI.

The GSG Schmeisser STG-44 is designed to retain as many of the original specs as possible. Called the "Schmeisser" STG-44 in honor of the Sturmgewehr 44's original designer, it makes for a unique and historical plinker.

You can get a closer look at the GSG Schmeisser STG-44 in the video below, hosted by American Rifleman Editor-in-Chief Mark Keefe.
