  1. Advice on next FA wanted please!

    After picking up my third MG, an M1A1 Tommy, I have the full blown addiction. Given i also own an Uzi and an AC-556, I have the .223, 9mm and .45 Fas covered. What would be a good next gun? I wouldn’t be opposed to an AK but I was also wondering on the opinions on belt feds? They seem like a lot of work to haul, set up, take down, and they seem to not be even worth the effort for less than 500 rounds per session. Any opinions or suggestions on a good next MG are appreciated, thanks!
  2. Advice On AK/ Krinks Please!

    I have decided that My Next MG is gonna be an AK, and I'd really like a Krink in 5.45, so my questions to you all are what are some pros and cons of the Krinks in 5.45 or 7.62 Vs the Full size AK? what are some ways to go about finding one ? I'd like one thats already had the snot beat out of it as i am young and like to shoot and i don't want to pay top dollar for a safe queen because i plan on treating it like an AK after all! I already own an AC-556 folder and am waiting on the ATF for an M1A1 tommy and an Uzi as well but I still have very minimal experience in this hobby. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hey all, i live just down the road from knob creek and have never missed a shoot, i even shot them with my dad when i was younger, but now as he has passed and i have my own MG with two more on the way i was wondering if anyone on here is shooting this April and maybe had room for one more? i have plenty of ammo to share and could help clean up after, set up, clean weapons, chip in for fees, etc... Thanks! ive know the guys at knob creek all my life but they tell me the shoots booked up full.
  4. I started the long wait back in November on a WW2 Savage M1A1 Thompson and I now realize that I know absolutely nothing about them or how they work. so what are some of the ins and outs of them? the good the bad and the ugly? some of the things to know as well as quirks and/or faults of these guns? is there a way to modify the reciever or an existing drum to make them fit and if so is it really worth it? is one maker objectively better than the rest? thanks in advance!
  5. Thompson Vs AK for next buy thoughts on each?

    thanks! i think im ggoing to go with the Tommy, now the question is should i look for an M1, the M1A1, the 1928? what are the pros and cons of each? which ones work the best? thanks!
  6. I've narrowed down my next purchase to between a Tommy or an AK/Krink, which ones do you all prefer over the other? what are some of the quirks, benefits, or drawbacks of each if you can? whats the best way to go about finding and buying one?thanks!
  7. WTB AK Shooter

    Looking for a shooter quality full auto transferable AK. im not lookingg for collectors safe queens, im looking for something thats already been shot a lot becsause im gonna shoot it a LOT more. i have funds in hand ready to go, 7.62x39 preffered but 5.45x39 would be nice too. thanks!
  8. Next Machine gun, buyers advice please!

    i bought a B/G bolt on an IMI receiver, ive considered M16s, but as i already have an AC556 i feel one .223 is good for now, but definitely not out of the question.
  9. I recently picked up my first MG, a Ruger AC-556, and am waiting on the stamp for an uzi i just purchased, but i now have full on machine gun fever and am looking for my next one. What is a good option for someone young just now getting into the hobby? i have the opportunity to buy a a powder springs Mac 10 for 7,000 but it seems like a step down from the uzi and an HK sear for 25K but that seems pretty steep given id have to buy the guns too. i was thinking maybe a shooter condition AK or Thompson if i can find one. im not looking for some unfired safe queen, whatever i end up getting will be shot A LOT, but what is some advice you all can give me? thanks!
  10. does anyone know of an aftermarket stock or brand making them that will fit a Ruger AC-556? i want to put mine up so it doesn't get too worn in while i shoot mags and mags through the rifle. rails would be nice to have but just a plain synthetic would work too.
  11. Uzi advice for buyer please!!

    I have the opportunity to buy a full auto transferable Uzi (reg. Bolt) for the price of $11,000 out the door, i am only 22 and completely new to collecting machine guns, so is this a decent price? the gun looks like it was made yesterday and fired very little if at all. and from those of you who own Uzis, what is the good, the bad, the ugly? the quirks and things you like and dislike about them? thanks all!
  12. WTS Ruger AC556-F

    Hello, I am local to louisville and would like to buy your Ruger, My name is Alex and my cell is 502-216-6093. Thanks! i have cash in hand though it sounds weird given the ATF wait.
  13. WTS: Group Industries HR4332 Uzi SOLD

    Hi, if you still have this uzi for sale i would be interested in buying it for a first time MG. My cell is 502-216-6093 if oyu would like to call or text me, thanks!
  14. I have recently decided to take the plunge and buy my 1st MG. I have decided on something historical such as an STG-44, Thompson, or maybe a Maxim/Vickers. I am only 22 so I have practically zero experience in this field. is all of the paperwork something to be scared of or is it just a little more red tape? Which of those guns listed would be best to last or if there are some that aren't listed what are some other good choices? and how could i best go about finding one for sale for a good price? and is the process of buying one from out of state harder than ins state or just different? thanks in advance!
  15. I have recently decided to acquire my first full auto and am completely new to the Class 3 "Process". I have decided I want something German, and was thinking about an MP-40 or an STG-44 or maybe an MG-42 if I could find one, but no one I have talked to has seen an MG-42 for sale since the 90s. My question is, are these weapons, being as old as they are and will only get older, will they hold up to time and are they worth the hassle of tracking down parts and ammo if I get an STG-44? I know that I will turn every head at the range regardless of if I get a WW2 weapon or a more modern HK fleming conversion. Any and all opinions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
