    Just out of interest how can the massive price be justified? Does it have some historical importance or something?

    Not being funny but I could have 10 of them built from scratch for that price given economy of scale etc.

  3. I believe that US Federal law requires full-auto weapons to have been in private hands before a certain date in order that they may be sold into other private hands, thus drastically restricting the number in circulation.

    Supply and demand and all that.

  5. They have to be registered before 1986 although there is an arcane rule for mp44s and the like that are turning up as veterans die off.
    Basically anunfired gpmg goes for $$$$$$$ and will probably never be fires as it keeps going up in price as no more automatic weapons are allowed by law.
  6. I wonder how these slip though?
  7. Loon built it himself so as a federal firearms dealer he could have it to sell to police forces etc.
    thats how fps russia gets his toys.
    Law departments can have machine guns etc.
