You'd be surprised at the accuracy the Germans found acceptable for the StG44. The appeal of the system was the use of burst fire. If you send a 3-4 rounds burst downrange the odds of hitting are better than 1 out of the K98. As I stated earlier, Sturmgewehr! has all the info you could ever want. As to the name game post, this has already been addressed in another thread. Why bring it up here?? BTW the StG44 wasn't the only weapon that could be rendered useless by a ding in the receiver. The MkB42 (W) was immediately ruled out because of this possibility. Any Allied or Axis sheet metal weapon could be ruined by a ding. Today, H&K weapons can suffer the same demise. I've bought many cheap SP-89s because the receivers were damaged by people attempting to stamp info per NFA regs.
