Probably in the neighborhood of $5k, and the SMG-FG42s wouldn't be semi only

Not that surpising ..Though only one mag and not correct scope mount is a issue

The last ones up for auction at RIA etc hit that or so

FG42 are rarer guns then say a STG44 or the like ...Sure 200k is way too much but in this case not as crazy as other fa like what M16 or MP40 go for

Wasnít meant to offend. Just a commentary on the Hughes amendment and how if made turned full autos like this into unobtanium for most of us.

I guess if I sold my house and truck, I could buy this rifle and push it around in a shopping cart as a homeless bum

Not sure why it seems to be becoming a trend that folks send viewers off the forum, when a simple sentence could alleviate any of that BS.

The item in question:

Just selling a gun to buy an entire house paid in cash is all...

If you check out FN's military line of M249 semi automatic prices that's probably what it would be around, maybe a bit more due to it's historical legacy/age.

*sigh*

A "contentless post" is one which tells you nothing, but makes you click offsite to figure out whatever it is is trying to be said.

While they don't violate our formal rules, none of the mods like them and many get deleted.


Bluntly: This isn't a link farm - it's a discussion forum.

Yeah, your probably right, I just don't pay attention to such things.

Mental note; Don't post threads that immediately link to other sites.

Wow - that is a lot of beans.

More than I would spend - unless of course I git the Mega-Millions lottery LOL

And even than...well I am a frugal man, so probably not even than.

Still, nice to see one out there in the wild, as it were.

An original FG42 magazine sells for as much as one of the new semi auto reproduction rifles which is about $5K.

Even without Hughes that rifle would fetch a similar fortune, I’m no expert but I’d its all original it’s worth as much stupid bans or not

Indeed.

Only a couple thousand were made, so it could've been classified as a "Curio & Relic" ( which would've allowed it to bypass the NFA )
