A while ago I finished the first of a new pattern of MP28. There are a few differences between this and the previous versions.
Firstly, I have used a new hung-back trigger, which reproduces the trigger location more realistically than previous versions. The stock wrist is also slightly thicker to allow a wire to run to a battery compartment in the stock.
I have formalised the battery compartment cover, accessed by loosening one screw and levering up the cover.
The rear sight is now a simpler, non-windage-adjustable pattern. Elevation is still adjustable via the sight leaf.
The magazine well is an all new pattern. This allows me to produce a more accurate magazine well and adds in details I couldn’t possibly do by hand. I think all will agree that these markings really do look the part and really add to the replica.
The new buttplate pattern, slightly slimmer than its predecessor.
