    fuck the story. Every time someone has a story the product is either fucked up, or they want too much.

    If I were spending $295k on a weapon it would have rotors or maybe even afterburners.

    So can somebody explain this to me... I thought there was a lot different in full auto compared to semi.. but the way it looks off these pages is the only thing that really means anything is the sear... so you spend $14,000 for this tiny piece of metal...

    There's really not a whole lot of difference in full auto guns and semi auto guns.

    While the guns arent worth but $1500, it's the stamp and that one piece of paper that's worth the extra $12,500

    I thought a stamp was $200. (which you'd have to pay ontop of the $14,000... and if what I understand is correct you'd need to pay that per each caliber you want it registered in as well...:dunno:

    and aren't that different.. I seem to recall a thread on here going off about how liberals always say that and claim that all the nig nogs run around with converted full autos but in the real world there's a lot different in a full compared to a semi and it's pretty hard to come by one...

    Yeah the stamp is $200 as proof of the tax paid, but the gun is only really worth $1500. It's that $200 tax stamp that gives it that extra $12k price increase, simply because then its a Pre-86 transferrable item. If that gun doesnt have a stamp, it's worthless to the regular public. If there was no current bans; we'd all be buying M16s at $1k a pop factory, less for conversions etc.

    And anyone with any mechanical knowledge can make a machine gun or a "auto" sear etc. Just depends on if you're an honest citizen or not.

    For all we know there could be. We've changed an AK to a post sample MG in under 20 minutes. Drill one more hole, cut a small notch and put the parts in. Anyone with a little machine skills could replicate an auto sear and there you have it, a MG. I'm sure there are plenty illegal MGs floating around or buried in people's backyards. I just wish the NFA would go away so I can afford a legal MG.

    its not so much the NFA, but the 1986 ban (i think) :dunno: cause if people could import, or manufacture and register machine guns the market would stabilize, no?
