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

    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 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.
