Does anybody know of a place where an Average Joe like myself can purchase semi-automatic versions of the BAR, Sten Gun, MP40, Thompson, etc...? Are there even any in production? What kind of prices am I looking at? Thanks in advance for any help....

http://www.ohioordnanceworks.com/ has BARs and various iterations of semi-auto Browing .30's

http://www.auto-ordnance.com/ has tommy guns

as far as semi Stens, MP40's etc., to the best of my knowledge, nobody currently makes one. http://www.philaord.com/index.html has receiver castings if you want to roll your own for most of the above.
Stens are not the most difficult of machines to fabricate; getting one BATFE approved though...plans and tube templates are widely available on the net, but I don't know how reliable any of them are.

Anyone else?

Valkyrie Arms (http://www.valkyriearms.com/) makes a copy of the M3 for $750. They also have a copy of the Browning 1919A4 for $2,850 and a copy of the DeLisle carbine for $1,450 without the NFA hassle for a suppressor.

Ohio Ordnance Works (http://www.ohioordnanceworks.com/) makes a copy of the 1918A3 BAR for 2,850 with a Bakelite stock.

Auto Ordnance (http://www.autoordnance.com/) makes several versions of the Thompson with prices starting at $935.

Semi Auto Sten (http://www.semiautosten.com/) has a kit that you can use to build a semi auto Sten out of a parts kit, or you can buy a completed rifle. I'm not sure how much all that runs, but I think the parts kit and conversion will be leess than $500.

Special Weapons LLC (www.specialweaponsllc.com) was supposed to be making a MP40, but I haven't heard anything about it. I don't know if they're making it, or how much it will cost because I can't bring their site up.

Any other specific models you're interested in?
