  1. MG's as an investment

    Everybody has different interest. For me it was a bucket list thing. I have been interested in cars and guns all my life. Had 7 Corvettes and lots of guns and 1 Sendra M16(paid around $3k for the M16 if I remember correctly) before I/we had kids. We had one birth child and adopted 3 other children. After the children started coming along it was by by to the M16, most of the guns and hello mimi van. Right before I turned 60 and the financial burden(not really what I would call a burden because I love all my children) I thought man I would like to check off some bucket list stuff. I looked at a new vette but it was hard getting in and out of that thing as I was not as agile as I was when I was younger , bad knees ect. There was other stuff I thought about but was still very interested in MG's so I went that route and am very pleased. If I had more interest in the Corvettes I would have went that direction knowing full well in 5 years it would be worth about half what I paid for it. The $ gain/loss never played really into the decision. I really enjoy the MG's I have. Just got my first beltfed (HK21) and not sure if I can stop without an M60 though the ATF wait time really puts me on the fence. So in the end Im very happy with the choices I made, my wife is ok with it so I guess it all worked out well. Even though I feel the country is really in a bad place, in the end Im glad I live in a country where I am able to get the things I want. We get to own MG's at least for the time being so how cool it that! I hope my sons will be able own them during their lifetime if they so choose.

    WHAT GIVES YOU THE MOST JOY TO LOOK AT? That one is easy(for the moment) Mike-My HK 21, does that count for getting out of my short pants Nice to see you posting lately always enjoy your prospective and knowledge!! Thanks Tommy
  3. MG's as an investment

    Well I have spent more than that but have no objection to them being removed from NFA. I don't think that will happen at least in my lifetime but if it did I would be ok with taking the hit I would and buying some really cool toys that are out of my price range. More $200 sears, Cheap HK receiver guns, HK21's, M60's and SAWS. Where do I sign up :) As you said and im 100% with you "I think we can both agree that regardless of our reasons, machine guns are freakin' cool.!!!!!!

  5. MG's as an investment

    I was able to get my wife to go along with that thinking. I was able to get a couple of HK Sears and an M16 out of the deal. I told her I was 60(couple years ago) and I would like to enjoy myself for a bit before the end (raised 4 kids and got them thru school). Was able to put everything in a spread sheet and she can sell the stuff when I pass(She is 11 years younger). Told her I could always buy a Vette or other sports car but good luck getting anything near what I paid for it after I was gone. She was OK with that so Im all good

  12. As long as it is registered and transferred to you you can swap the parts out. There are videos on youtube showing how to do it.
  13. Looking for a PS90 as a Birthday present for my son. He is not much of a gun person but has said on multiple occasions he would like one of these. Looking for a decent priced one, will pay fair value. Not an SBR to much wait time. If you have one or know the location of one please let me know by PM. Does not have to be new as long as it functions correctly. If we decide to SBR it I will do it on an e-mailed F1. Looking to deal with someone that has a history on here, HKpro, ect. Please PM me with cost, location and pics if possible. Again if you don't have history don't send me a PM as I will not deal with you. I have lost money to a scammer in the past and I don't plan on doing it again. Thanks for your time Tommy
  14. I had this happen to me several years ago. It is sad but now I will only deal with known dealers(even for the extra $'s) and known members on here and HKPro. It is very sad that people have no honor in todays world!! The extra $'s are worth the piece of mind for me. A couple months ago a guy was trying to sell a HKG3K and had nice pictures(They were all my pics :() Sorry this happened to you! Tommy
  15. Maples 50 M2HB 38,500.00

    Thanks for the pics and someday maybe I can afford one of these also. At present Im working on getting an HK21 as my first belt feed thanks much for the pics that is one nice looking gun! I could most likely get the gun but the ammo would break me!!! Thanks again for your time Tom. Tommy
