What a waste , these Stg 44 were to be shipped to a arms dealer in Europe who had done a deal with the Syrian Government . I dont think they will see much service with the rebels as they do not have the ammo .

The Stg44 / MP44 were not produced after May 1945 . While used by many forces after WW2 these weapons were of WW2 manufacture and were Waffen stamped .

So the run of Stg44's used by the East Germans, Czechs and Yugo armies were all war made versions and carried across up into the 1980's , what of the version made by the Argentenians, I was told they made a version , would that have differed widely from the war made ones or just similar?

Yes , all the MP44/Stg44 used by the Eastern Bloc countries were wartime models .
Yes , Argentenia tried to make a version of the MP44 but this was not a success and was a post war copy.
