Thats the one. I know some peeps who run a wholesalers and they just got in a few of these but the price even at wholesale cost seems too high for what can be expected from the normal s&t stuff.

For that price you may as well buy a beta projects one, which i can highly recommend, mine cost me £268 delivered inc fees etc ftom ehobby. From the pictures in the link it looks to be a copy of the beta one.

Just looking at the pictures ,the front sight is the correct shape and the little brackets that stop fingers going into the ejection port and in front of the barrel are the right shape,the bayonet fitting at the muzzle is off set correctly as well so the little details are better ,the beta project version is of the Canadian version not the British version and has all those things wrong from a British point of view .the stock looks a little flimsy on the side's ,hopefully the battery is in the back this time .

I have the Beta one and it is the british version, all as you discribe it also has the semi and full auto capability. The Action one is the one you are talking about which is auto only and noly has short (40rd BB's) style mags. Plus god awful screws on the outside holding the internals in place. Some pics of mine

Lol, thats why I thought it was a copy of the Beta one as it has all the 'right' bits on you mentioned. All that aside, to the op, it's bit limiting for WW2 games. I have mine for cold war (said in hushed tones on the WW2 forum :lol: )

You could always cut down some of the sterling mags, but you'd only get about 15-20rds at a best, rough guess.
