  1. What If?

    Well, it seems like you are worried about the price of the gun and how much you paid for it. I bought whatever machine guns I have because I like them and I consider them holy relics so they are priceless to me no matter what happens. I bought mine not as an investment but for the fun and historical factor. Buy what you like because you like it and don't worry about what if. Remember, at the end of the day, all we really have is today. Yesterday is gone never to be repeated and tomorrow is guaranteed to no one. Enjoy it and forget about the what ifs. I fully expect mine to be "worthless" one day because the registry will be frozen just like in Canada. I will enjoy mine while I can.
  2. 9mm Ammo Question

    I have about 1000 rounds of the South African New Generation ammo. It is packed in the red boxes and is sealed. It is the REGULAR ammo and NOT the +P ammo, Is this just shooting ammo or is it collectible? I bought 2000 rounds of this stuff about 20 years ago. I shot 1000 rounds and kept the other 1000 because it is really primo ammo. I was trying to find more but none is to be found anywhere that I can see.
  3. Advice for first time Buyer please!

    My suggestion would be a nice MP40 tube gun by either Wilson or Erb. I have owned an Erb tube gun and it was the cat's ass and I have shot a Wilson tube gun also great. The prices on C&R MP40s seems to be dropping so maybe you could pick up a nice one in the 18k range or so. They are too much fun. I assure you that you would love it. You would also need to buy a parts kit as parts can be a bit of a challenge.
  4. What do I need to know about mk760

    Uhhhh, listen up, I am going to tell you everything you need to know about the MK760. Are you listening? DON't EVER THINK OF BUYING ONE!!! They are nothing but trouble. Ask me how I know. I owned one and could never get it to run right. I tried different clips, different ammo, finally, I sold it to a guy but told him hey, you will need to tinker with this because it doesn't run right. He told me he was very handy and could get it to run. He never did get it to run right. If you want a good, fun, and RELIABLE gun get yourself a nice Powder Springs Mac 10 in 9mm or 45. You will love it. You will NEVER love the MK760. Hope this helps and please listen. Take care, Haenelistklasse
  5. MG's as an investment

    I would have to say that MGs are not an investment for me not money wise anyway. They are instead an investment in fun. I think many guys buy them because they think they are a great investment but all you need is one politician to start the call to outlaw these "dangerous weapons" because "nobody needs a MG" and "it's for the chirrun". I really enjoy the ones that I own and a lot of times just like looking at them like a person admires a fine piece of art or a pretty woman. I am fairly certain after collecting for over 20 years that they will probably be outlawed one day but I enjoy them for the here and now because when you think about it that is all any of us have anyway. And to answer your question would I buy a MG knowing that in five years it would be worth half or less? Hell, yes!!! In fact, the ones that I currently own will probably be worth half or maybe even worthless. Would I do it all again? Yes, I would. To be honest, if I had a wife, I would probably tell her they are a great investment too. Just remember to do something nice for her too because you did kind of hoodwink her.
  6. Next mg

    I would have to say that if you want a "modern" SMG then you can not go wrong with a Powder Springs Mac10/45. They are great guns. In fact, my one time at the Creek, I shot an MG42, an MP5k, an MP5A3 and a Powder Springs Mac10/45 fully suppressed and the Mac was my favorite gun. Another good choice is the Smith and Wesson 76 but it may be a bit more than what you want to spend. DO NOT buy an MK760. They are total junk. Ask me how I know. If you want to go "classic" then you should look for a nice Beretta 38/42 or 44. Again, this may be a bit more than what you want to spend but it will be worth it. One other great choice is the MP40 by either Erb or Wilson. I have owned an Erb and they are great guns and have shot a Wilson and they are also great. Again, you may have to save a bit more but you will not be disappointed. Well, I hope this helps. Take care, Schmeisser Guy

  11. Tax stamp question

    Hi, your cancelled NFA stamp is of interest to stamp collectors and are actually eagerly sought by them as they are pretty rare I guess. I would say the value would be somewhere between $25-$50.
  12. WTK: Value of Steyr Model 1908

    Hello, I was thinking of posting a duplicate Steyr I have but want to know what would be a fair sale or trade price on it. It has some pitting and the mag is replaced but has a really cool serial #111104. I have never fired it and the finish is maybe 70% or so I guess. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. Hello, I have for sale or trade a nice shooter grade HK94 rifle. I have owned this gun for the last nine years and have shot it about 800-900 rounds. It shoots perfect and is a 90% finish gun. It has wear and patina on the high points. It is coded IH and has a fixed stock. This gun was not a safe queen . I believe this gun to be a California Department of Corrections gun because it has a stenciled serial number on the side of the receiver. Comes with three (3) aftermarket mags. Sorry, I do not know how to post pics but can send pics to your email or phone. It may take me a day or two to get them to you. I may also be willing to do a partial trade for the following items. 1) A nice shooter grade World War Two Luger with about 50%-60% finish. 2) MP40 mags, 3) A shooter grade Colt .25 caliber pocket gun with about 50%-60% original finish. 4) May also consider a World War Two Mauser with Nazi proofmarks again a shooter grade gun is fine. I value my gun at about $2200 but will work with you if we do a trade. Would prefer half trade half cash but am open to offers. My email is or call or text (307) 670-3039 MDT. If no answer, please leave your name, phone number and a brief message and I will get back to you.
  14. WTT: Very Rare Advanced Collector C&R MP38/40

    Have talked to a fellow collector and he talked to a German MP40 expert at the Show of Shows and the MP40 expert said that the giant E on the receiver is a Gate Vilnius mark used by Lithuanian forces during World War Two. This is the same mark used on some Browning Hi Power handguns.
  15. Hello, I am looking to trade a very rare early production MP40 coded 122 40 which is early Haenel production. Serial number 2460a and also has an IRS #xxxx. I would rate the finish as a conservative 80%+, 100% matching which includes the endcap, trigger guard, stock. receiver tube, rear site, bolt, firing pin, sling ring, barrel, front site, barrel resting bar (aluminum), magwell. This gun has all the very rare early features to include the square hook front site, slab side magwell, hook style cocking handle with rare unmodified receiver. I have talked to Alex Cruiming ( and he said the gun is rare and only six out of 600 MP40's in his worldwide database have this code. This gun also has some unusual markings like a big letter E stamped on the top of the receiver. No one knows what this is for. Also this gun has 8,82 stamped on the barrel which stands for 8,82mm as the Germans were experimenting with different size bullets. Also has triple proofmarks on barrel (waffenampt 37). Gun is not for sale for trade only on a Form 4 in Wyoming. I have fired this gun about 200 rounds and it ran great. What I am looking for in trade. a) A nice shooter grade C&R MP40, original finish (at least 40%-50% finish). Your gun MUST have the ribbed magwell plus the push button cocking handle. Mismatch gun ok. I would want your gun plus cash on your end for my gun. or b) May consider an even trade for a really nice C&R MP40 (90%+ original finish or so), 100% matching. Again, your gun MUST have the ribbed magwell plus the push button cocking handle. May also do an even up trade for a shooter grade gun that has an interesting or bizarre history. I do not know how to post pictures but I have taken about 2 dozen pics and can send them to your email or phone. Email or text/phone (307) 670-3039. If no answer, please leave name, number and a short message. Also if you are serious about this gun, I HIGHLY recommend you come and see this gun in person.
