    I would like to buy another, maybe 2 more, machine gun or NFA weapons and not looking to spend more than $20k.

    I really want to buy a 1919a4. But I've also thrown around the idea of purchasing a tube MP-40 and an M-79. But I also would like an M1 or M1a1 Thompson or an MP43/44/StG44.

    I'm already up on one beltfed. So what would one do? Comments and other firearms suggestion welcome. (Not big on the HK stuff or M16 variants)

    you could probably do a tube 40 and m79 for under $20k, but an mp44 or thompson your going to be paying close to $20k for either.

    I personally would go with a 203 instead of 79 :o

    Yeah. I know the Thompson or the MP-44 will be in the upper teens-$20k range. Just don't know which one I would want.:hs:

    Yeah that would be a tough choice for me too, I think I'd probably lean towards the Thompson though for ammo reasons.

    I want an MP5 or something like that :wtc:

    I just can't see spending the money on these weapons.

    I was thinking that also. But nless I got some sweet deals on both. I'd have to pass on one or the other for a couple of months.

    Pfft, If I'm dropping $40k+ on a gun it'll be a MG-42.

    Granted I do love shooting my friends. Maybe one day if I get incorporated and buy Pre-Sample guns.

    I've seen them anywhere from $25k-$45k.

    Well I'm not buying from that guy. But I''ll be happy to "attempt" to sell them at that price.

    are you on crack? 30k?


    I have no idea why you would buy an mp44 unless you had some sort of caliber conversion.

    Not hard to reload ammo plus people offer box ammo. Expensive, but what the hell.

    And yes Thompsons are on the hefty side. But I'm not planning on running a marathon with it.

    a guy that lives near my grandparents has one and let me handled it when I was 15 or so and I couldn't believe how heavy it was loaded. I don't recall if it was semi or f/a but he kept it loaded and hanging on the wall in case someone broke in :mamoru:

    I'd hate paying for a 100rnd drum. $7500 can be a tough pill to swallow to carry 100 rnds....
