As promised, photographs of the finished G43 build. Remember, this was converted from an M14 AEG, so it isn’t a 100% accurate replica.
This is shown with the short M14 magazines, the standard M14 magazine is much longer but these are a pretty good stand-in for the original G43 mags.
Side view of the receiver, showing the scope rail.
And with scope mounted.
A close-up on the foresight. This wedge sight and full hood should make for fast and easy target acquisition.
The underside for those interested. Unfortunately due to the location of the battery compartment in this AEG, the classic German sling mounted through the side of the buttstock was unfeasible. As a result I have kept the original sling swivels.
This project has sparked a lot of interest so this model will be available as a kit and as a complete gun.
