If you load 29 rounds instead if thirty, it helps reduce jamming. Something to do with the way the spring works in the magazine.

I can understand why you think that it is a possibility. The STG and the AK look very similar on the outside, but the interal mech. of an STG resembles much more that of an MP5.

If I'm not mistaken, the StG44 is closer to teh SKS than the AK

I don't understand this big fuss about Kalashnikov "stealing" anything from StG-44 as some like to call it. as far as it goes every self loading weapon is somehow related to the earliest operational semi automatic weapons and I think the first "assault rifle" if you may call it was the Fedorov automatic rifle as early as in the 1920's, or atleast soviets back then considered the 6.5mm Arisaka cartidge an intermediate cartidge so

I must agree on the big fuss. The M60 was a copy of the FG-42, so whats the big deal about the AK and STG?
