    Hey, there's a friend of mine, that is asking 500$ for a m3 grease gun. Here in my country they are legal, there is no tax or any kind of fine to own submachine guns. I think it is too cheap, I don't know if my friend is crazy or something, but he shooted it in his backyard to show us how it works.
    What do you think?

    In the US a transferable grease gun is a $18k+ item. I would absolutely buy one for $500 that was legal. Jump on it, the grease gun is simple and crude, but they work. Basically the US answer to the British STEN.

    I was issued a M3 while in the US Army. Definitely nothing fancy but they work. I don't know what the going rate is in Uruguay is for one so can't help on that. I would love to own one myself.

    Buy it. See if you can find a wire stock from an M3A1, so that you don't have to carry around a separate magazine loading tool.

    other than being expensive to feed (remember it can eat 500 in ammo in less than an hour)
    what's not to like
    it came from a time when they needed CHEAP, quick reliable weapons
    compared to the time and COST of a Tommy (M28) a M3 was basic plumbing pipe, stamped parts...)

    Didn't they also have a slightly slower cycle rate than the Thompson, helping with accuracy and ammo conservation? Seems like I read that or saw it on TV.....

    Cyclic is about 450.............buddy has one & honestly, one could easily shoot a semi of different design faster..........Downside is that single position feed mag.....wear your thumb out topping it up. Friend's piece is actually surprisingly accurate even with that heavy long bolt travel. Utterly reliable tho.

    Sounds like your country has some sane gun laws, tell us about 'em!

    Y'know, I recall finding an M/3A1 when I was stationed in Alaska........thing had been flattened by an M60 during a winter maneuver.......had a most interesting configuration, kinda like an oddly drawn letter "U". Wish I'd kept the thing!
