RWA MG34 review
Eirik Halvard Norseth
Wait for G&G MG42.
The RedWolf Airsoft version of the Viva Arms MG34 is a un-skirimishable decorative wall-hanger.
It is unable to hold its own drum mag due to the bent hooks on its feed tray, the hooks are prone to bending during rough trans-ocean shipping due to the packaging.
The stock is secured by a catch that on my specimen was slightly out of spec which resulted in it becoming stuck half-seated and so it is now permanently attached prohibiting the disassembly required to use the box it came in.
At least one of the smallest screws, this one on the top cover is permanently lose and cannot be tightened no matter how much you torque it.
The front barrel assembly which the bipod is attached to is not secured tightly making the gun unable to rest on its bipod without swinging upside down.
While the upper is made out of aluminium the lower, the grip, trigger, etc. are entirely made out of plastic and considering the sling is meant to attach to the pistol grip you would have to rest its entire weight on a ~5mm thick plastic sling point.
The "double" trigger is copied but as the trigger can move side to side you have to be careful and take time to feel your way, if not the trigger will become stuck and you have to release it again in order to retry firing.
The following is merely a thought and is really outside my area of expertise: The gun comes with no MOSFET for a machine gun with 11.1 volt battery meant for continuous suppressive fire, I would suspect the trigger contacts might fail after much use.
The finish is nicely applied but to black and not gunmetal grey which gives it a toy-ish look. The finish also wears fast. All in all, wait for the G&G MG42 as I am quite disappointed with this.
Samme jeg postet på Ehobby's produkt side men vet ikke hvordan de gjør det da de må bli godkjent før de blir offentlige.
