The undisputed star of the upcoming Rock Island Premier auction is this transferable full-auto German FG-42 paratrooper's rifle. Only a few dozen of these are in private hands in the US, and they are an extremely advanced design for WWII. Hammer price for this rifle at auction was a phenomenal $260,000.
