Semi-Auto only, and if so how much would you shell out for one?

The real deal 9mm semi-autos go for over $3,500.

GSG-5 fires .22 and is under $600.

They are going for about 3.5K Euros a pop this side of the pond, with a suppressor that is.

The HK-94's will be high as people buy them to add Full auto trigger packs or SBR projects,

The Vectors earn a Meh,

There is this one company called Special Weapons the make a clone, which if one is offered to you for sale you should run the other way.

you are paying way to mutch.. Brügger & Thoment will built you a new ones for 2/3 of that price, you can even choose the caliber.

You can but most of them you should avoid.

Especially Vulcan!!! Trust me:banghead:

Also avoid Special Weapons as well, I've been down that road also and I don't like talking about it:fire: Basically avoid any clone making companies with the Bailey name attached to it.

We can't, here in the states. "Sporting purpose" and all that BS.

I heard that RDTS, IGF, and ORF offer services relating to civilian MP5 guns from a friend. Sadly, I have no idea what those abbreviations stand for.

Yup as much as I would love to have a MP5, I have to settle for an UZI and TP-9. I refuse to buy anything but the real deal because all of the clones are made so poorly and so overpriced that they don't deserve the title "clone".

I pick it up tomorrow. :D So ill let you know around tuesday when i get to the range. But my uzi is pretty sweet. Since the semi-auto version fires from a closed bolt, its alot more accurate then most people give it credit for. Mine is an IMI, but when vector was up and running, you couldnt beat their $625 uzi price tag. Now they are running around the same price as an IMI uzi which makes your choice quite obvious.

These are all pretty well known folks that deal in NFA items in some way or another.
