  • I don't believe it to be worth what they are asking to me...but it would be a lot of fun.

    I haven't shot that type of MP5 but I get a chance to shoot an MP5SD and MP5K and they were both awesome to shoot. The MP5SD was really awesome because of the suppressor.

    Really fun but expensive to purchase as a transferable.



  • I would get a class 3 dealer license just to be able to play with "dealer samples"...but I don't own the house I live in and I'm not gonna ask permission of the owner. :)



  • How does transferable/nontransferable work? This is part of the side effect of living in California

    Can't you go down to the local GS get a tax stamp and then buy NFA items?

    So if I wanted a suppressed sbr with the 3 position fire control group couldn't I go get three stamps then build one?

    I'm planning ahead.

  • Local GS would need to be Class 3 licensed FFL

  • Right. Assuming of course the appropriate licenses are in place.

  • Even with the Class 3 you could not buy a new Full Auto. The reason they cost so much now is the transferable FAs are limited to units existing prior to, I believe, May 1986. Anything made after May could only be transferred between manufacturers and dealers.

    This is not really how this works.

    You must first purchase the item you want and have it transferred to a dealer in your state via a form 3. Then you file a form 4 with the atf to transfer said item from dealer to you (or your trust). The atf charges you the $200 for the stamp when paperwork is filed. When the atf approves the form 4 they attach the stamp to the form and return it to your dealer. You can then take the item home.

    Now the catch on the select fire/full auto is that in order for an individual to own one it must have been manufactured and registered with the atf before 1986. Anything made after 1986 cannot be transferred to an individual or a trust.

    If you want to assemble an SBR you can do so. This requires a form 1 instead of a form 4. File the form 1 and pay $200 tax. Atf will approve, affix stamp, and return it to you. At that point you can then assemble parts of your SBR. If you have a short barrel for an ar you need a pistol lower as well until you receive your approved form 1 or you could get in trouble for intent to assemble SBR.

    I'm also guessing that none of the three are legal in California.



  • @dddoo7

    You are correct sir. Nothing fun out here.

    All I want is a suppressor. Just one.

    "Just one" is how it always starts. It is a sickness.

    This is correct. There are pre-May dealer samples and post-May dealer samples that are available to Class 3 and other classes of dealers. If you give up your SOT status you can still keep the pre-May dealer samples that is why they are more valuable (cost more) than post-May dealer samples. If we bought a post-May dealer sample, as a class 3 dealer, and decided to give up our SOT we would have to sell/transfer the post-May dealer sample. That is why they cost so much less. You can get a post-May dealer full auto AR or AK for around $1k as a dealer but a pre-May dealer sample is many x's more in cost.



  • So just to make sure I understand, average joe American, cannot get a full auto unless it was made prior to may 86?

    I have to be a dealer or something to get one made after that?

    I have no particular desire to waste ammo that fast, but what the hell is the logic behind that?

  • Even Lightning links cost about 10 gees because of that liberal logic.
