I want one, but I sure don't want the ammo bill.
With enough ammo.
We all want one. But I don’t think dunking a hot gun barrel in cool water is a good idea.
Oy, you should have heard me trying to explain to a young liberal that “fully-automatic weapons” are not legal for people to own.
Unless it’s a gun dealer with a Class III permit.
Of course, that’s twenty-year-old info.
Has it ever changed?
Looks like a cross between a SAW and a 240...
BLOCKED! For later
If I ever had an opportunity to get one, it would have to be a package deal that includes an accident prone boat.
If your life depended on it you would think so.
It's a cool idea though. :-)
I take it you got a sinking feeling.
I'm gonna ruin this thread yet.
german weapons videos always have cool music. the LEOPARD 2A6 is a great video.
May machine guns be transferred from one registered owner to another?
Yes. If the machine gun was lawfully registered and possessed before May 19, 1986, it may be transferred pursuant to an approved
You do require permit/license and tax. You are not required to be a dealer.
I sure wouldn’t want to be packing the ammo for it at my age. My shoulders hurts just thinking about it.
Class III are still legal but less and less are available.
Toys for very rich people.
Always wanted to buy a HK MP5 but I’ve more important things to think about.
Now that’s an awesome weapon for the Special Operations Units.Outstanding.
I remember when the MP5K semi-auto was about $1800 at gun shows.
Of course, this was still America back then.
Regular citizens can own select fire weapons. Requires the $200 tax stamp, background check, ATF Forms, signed off by Sheriff, etc. Could take months.
The real kicker is no new select fire weapons have legally been added to circulation since 1986. So they’re becoming very expensive. I think there’s even a couple of miniguns in this category. Last time one was up for sale it was running $250k.
Thanks for the info.
I’ll take one suppressed please!
(on a side note I guarantee there’s a whole bunch of swat teams just licking their chops wanting one of those so they can tote them to their no-knock parties too)
Oh, momma. I’m in love. That is sustained fire.
But can privates and corporals also use this machine gun or is it only for generals to use?
Full auto is legal to own in most States, but law requires registration with Fedzilla (BATFE and local top cop) and payment of $200 tax to Feds.
The mis-named “Firearms Owners Protection Act” of 1986 specifies that no full auto NOT registered with BATF in 1986 may be registered with them. Therefore, the supply of legally ownable, legally registerable full auto firearms is fixed ... and the price is through the roof.
IMHO, a plain reading of the Second Amendment and of the Miller decision clearly indicates that this provision of the FOPA is unconstitutional.
Sweden tested this LMG against the MAG-58 (M240G), the G3, and the M60E4 and decided to buy the M60E4.
Yeah, somebody referenced a $250k gun earlier in the thread.
Generally speaking, I think it's corporal punishment of private parties.
Yep. Saw it as I read down-thread. It’s complete madness ... even if I could afford to feed it, I can’t even remotely afford to buy it. I see “Class-III” stuff at gun shows, some times. A clapped-out MAC10 or similar might have a $15,000 price tag ... and that’s a cheap gun.
Back in reality-ville, there’s no technical reason why a full-auto “M-16” would be any more difficult or expensive to manufacture than a semi-auto “AR-15”. In a free country, the latter wouldn’t even exist, as it is a bastardization of Gene Stoner’s design.
The M60E4 didn't pass this test. Don't know how the H&K would have done, but the recoil on the M60E4 is worse too.
That depends on which state in which you live. Here in Ohio, we can. You still gotta pay the gubmint $200 and go through the FBI background check. But unless you go through that, you still can't.
Was thinking the same thing. H&Ks response to either/both?
But what a fantastic weapon! My all round favorite of any crew served.
Nice, but check out this modified old war horse:
Every yatch should have one ... right Travis?
The durability is great, but I'm not impressed with the groupings.
Roger. And that 1986 law was passed under Reagan’s watch. Select fire weapons are generally overkill, but if we’re trying to fight a tyrant and his army, laying down suppressing fire could be VERY useful.
If you’re ever in Ohio you are welcome to come shoot my MP5.
just plain pain and shear wow.
i would love to see the target he was annihilating
Methinks there are none transferable, courtesy of the Hughes Amendment. May he roast in the New Jersey section of hell.
What’s the box thingy underneath for?
Looks a lot like an MG42 with a new stock and improved belt feed: the hand lug for changing the barrel looks identical.
If the alternative is either the gun being inoperative from overheating, or being overrun by whoever caused it to overheat, I would think I would dunk it.
The bad news is that "Law Enforcement" is permitted to buy them and you get to pay the freight.
Thank you Ronnie Reagan.
It’s the accuracy that impresses me. It actually makes it worth putting a scope on it. What would be really cool is if they put image stabilization software into the scope that compensated for the repeatable fraction of barrel jump such that the image would hold where the barrel would return for the next shot. It would be a sort of feed-forward image control system that would augment the value of the scope considerably.
Deer Santa, I wanna Ma Duce, a BAR and a M1917 an’ a trailer load of ammo.
Santa is gonna need a bigger sleigh!...;)
