its a sweet piece of machine
why is it a red X?
trust me, its not a red x
Ive shot those many times. ... : DOD :
If there's one thing the krauts can do, it's build an automatic weapon.
all matching serial numbers dated 1942 used on the East front. (vs russians) shoots 9mm pistol ammo which is good because its cheap. fun fun fun gun its, amazing there is nothing like it in the world. and btw its full auto .
Very nice! If you don't mind me asking, what do those run these days? I never see them for sale on the boards.
$1,000 - $2,500 USD they are getting more rare,a nd harder to find i just saw one on sale on ebay with a de-milled recever/action for 900 but you can get action for about 100.
do you need one of those permits or whatever to buy a WWII era auot, like a BAR or something?
oh yeah, DoD rules
yea you need a Auto licence and you can pnly buy from a class III dealer but ATF has some wrid rules regarding historical firearms cheeck there webpage.
it's the same NFA crap for them all. kevin, the owner of advanced armament has 3, count them, 3, sturmgewers, 2 fallschirmjagers (one of each production), and at least two MG42's. in addition to one of just about every more common machine gun. he's also got a bunch of jap stuff, circa WWII. in fact, all his crap gets used for movies a lot. he did every small arms sound effect in Pearl Harbor the movie. i think he did some for saving private ryan too.
i'd give large amounts of money for the chance to run a box of 8mm Kurtz through an STG42. mainly because the ammo is that expensive.
i can get you 8mm kurtz if you want it send me a PM
oh, if i had something to shoot it in, i'd do it. but i don't know the guy. a friend of mine does, and even he will probably never get a chance to shoot those STG's.
they jam alot i they guy i got the Mp40 has a few StG44s and they are awsome, if you strip it and strip a Ak-47 next to each other, they are almost identical, expecialy the gas recoil system.
I might get to shot an M1917 A1 soon though
there's a semi-auto 1919 up at my dealer. along with a bunch of transferrable machine guns. there's an M2, an M16 or two, an Uzi, and a few other little things. some suppressed stuff, like the ruger MkII's. there's some SBS's, and post-samples of the G36 and G3.
.50BMG=too expensive to shoot. my friend would've bought an M2 by now if the ammo weren't so damned expensive. another friend is saving for an M82A1.
hehe, gotta pay to play
M82 is just scary, but so damned cool
i read somehwere that certain peoples are trying to get .50 BMG banned across the board
LA failed to do it, but they tried to ban the ammo inside the city limits, which would be a de facto ban on the firearms. would've been overturned down the road, but it would've taken a long time. it's rediculous, because there is nothing for lawmakers to fear from .50 BMG unless they plan on taking action against owners of .50 firearms that would result in retalliation with those firearms. in my opinion, the ammo is so expensive, and the firearms that shoot it are too, for that matter, that there are far too few people to even worry about. after all, when's the last time anyone committed a crime with .50 BMG? you can't just walk into a bank or convenience store and hold someone up with a rifle that weighs 30 pounds and kicks like a mule. as for .50 machine guns, there has been only one documented case of any registered machine gun owner committing a crime with that machine gun, and it was a cop who murded someone.
it's a power issue. to lawmakers, the .50 cartridge represents power. to take that away is useless from a practical sense, but it strikes a big blow against firearms owners in general. that's why they're trying to get rid of it.
Like Chris Rock said, "Why don't they make bullets cost $5,000 each? So then, if someone wanted to kill another person, they'd be like 'I'd shoot you, but its too expensive' ".
trade ya mp's....5 for the 40
