Profitability of Title II sales

Over the years, I have looked at many websites for Class III dealers that sell NFA firearms. Of course, a lot of these arms are select fire and fully automatic. Some of them are for sale, a lot of them are not, at least not to the average shooter. When you're selling say... a select fire Saiga conversion, how can you possibly turn a profit? I don't think too many law enforcement agencies are going to buy an AK.

Explain to MEH!!!

Full-auto and select-fire rifles being sold to law enforcement cost no more then semi-auto versions, so there is no profit advantage to selling them. What makes them expensive for civilians is the fact that no new weapons can be registered post-1986. The real profit margin is for people who are selling a full auto they have owned since pre-1986 when they were relatively cheap.

There's more than just MGs.

Suppressors have a reasonably good markup, as do receiving C3 transfers.

Most of the C3 dealers though aren't full-time or do it in addition to regular Title I guns, and the added perks of having post-sample toys around makes it worth it.
