That's really interesting. I sat through the whole thing which is rare for me.

is there any relationship between the STG57 and the FG42? or do they only look somewhat similar?
Yes chauncy, the Swiss were heavily influenced by the FG42 in respect to the design of this rifle. However they wanted the simplicity of the roller lock system also (no gas) so what you have is a cross between a FG42 and a Cetme/ Stg45. other rifles coming out in the west at that same time (mid 50's) were the FAL and M14.

HDH.
