I love this rifle
MP44 was actually The first assault rifle. Hitler wasn't impressed at first demonstration of this rifle so he canceled that project but development continued in secret.
It became base for a lot of modern assault rifles like AK/s 47,74,107... or Hk G3A3 which is very similar.

The model name is actually STG-44.

Excellent render!

yeah, the original designation was MP44 to hide development from Hitler who had insisted on manufacturing only machine guns, not rifles.
Once he discovered it he wasnt happy, but after trying it, was so impressed he re designated it Sturmgewehr (assault rifle) hence STG-44

you are right however as my production model should have that designation ..

It was the first modern assault rifle, but the Russians made the first automatic repeating rifle during the days of the Tsardom. It was the Fyodorov Avtomat, though it was not as popular as the Mosin Nagant. The STG-44 was probably the first automatic repeating rifle that used a good-sized magazine.

Sim, what you have there is actually an STG-44, the prototype production model was actually the MP-43, not 44. It's not a commonly known fact, so don't sweat it :P

If you really want to get technical, it was both, plus the MP43/1 which was modified with the addition of a screw end for a grenade launcher that as far as I can tell was never produced. And there were two prototypes made before the MP43, called the MKb42(H) and the MKb 42(W), which were made by the Hanel and Walther companies(respectively).

Excellent! The only thing I might note is that German wartime 7.92x33mm Kurz ammunition was steel, not brass cased.
