    Templar, what is the difference between the two: tube gun or CR?

    I bet the Russians have crates of these sitting in warehouses just like all the other captured German stuff. Maybe someday...............

    The MP-40 and the real AKM were always about the only two weapons that made me seriously consider Class III paperwork, hassle, etc.

    After seeing prices in the tens of thousands of dollars for some fully transferable guns, though, I decided these were rich man's toys after all.

    That's a beautiful MP-40: certainly better than the one I considered going after several years ago.

    Yup.... You have to wonder what all the Russians have still in warehouses.

    Zane,

    My choice of a FA weapon that I would serioulsy consider would be a select fire BAR without a doubt. After hearing my Dad taking about using one is the guard and the Bonnie&Clyde stuff along with reading about Marines using it in the Pacific I just want one of those damn things!

    If I get a F/A My choice would have to be a M16, though I relly don't like it, it is the most versatile..

    Nice Jack, you people with money make me sick..

    We all love commie guns here, so lets embrace the Communist ways.. Redistribution of wealth.. Everyone send me $100 dollars to help fund my broke ass to buy a MG..

    PS: I'll let you all shoot it..
    Repeal FOPA NOW!!!!!

    20 rounds of good ole USA 30.06 in FA will put a large grin on your face

    Seriously though, I see the BAR as one of the more interesting and historical weapons of the pre WW2 and WW2 era.

    Also for visceral effect it's big, it's bad, and it has bad ass fire power. I'm not super interested in blasting links of 500 rounds or 75 round drums all day. My second choice might be an MG42 in FA if I ever win the lottery maybe I could have at least one of these fine guns.

    Tube guns are parts kits built on registered after market receivers. Basically like a Romanian AK parts kit would be built up onto a Global receiver, except these aftermarket receivers were registered prior to the Sept. 1986 cut off point as machine guns.

    A Curio and Relic is an actual un-cut, unmolested bring back that was registered with the ATF when it was brought home or during the 1968 Amnesty.

    There are some states where the only Class 3 full auto stuff is C&R, no tube guns.

    Curio and Relic machine guns, whether they are sub machine guns, M2 Carbines, assault rifles, or "real" machine guns, are much, much more expensive and more collectable.

    A bring back C&R MP-40 is now over $12K or $14K easily.

    A well put together tube gun is slightly more than half that.

    Subguns like the MP-40, Sten, Sterling, Swedish "K", etc. are referred to as "tube guns" because the receivers are basically steel tubing.

    My Sterling is a tube gun. DLO registered the sheet metal tubes as machine guns with ATF right before Sept. of '86. They were not built up though.

    A year and a half ago, John Andrewski, Stan's son, started assembling unissued Sterling Mk. 4 parts kits from New Zealand onto these registered tubes.


    Hope that helps.
