Heat is always going to effect accuracy in any weapon especially lighter weight barrels , bull barrels and machine gun / heavy barrels are more made for heavy abuse like that , and when your spraying your not necessarily looking for pinpoint accuracy

Yeah...I'm a little intrigued, but just as something to use at the plinking range. I don't know, I've been looking for something fun to spend about a grand on...this might fit the bill. I just don't want to spend that $$$ only to have it be a total pos after a couple trips to the range.

I think if I had a extra grand to spend I would be looking at another AR / AK / or something else to add to my collection ,

Why not just buy a full auto gun? Not trying to be a smartazz but if you sell you AR your over halfway there. I guess I could see how it would be a cool toy for someone totally strapped for cash. Just curious.

The last price I found was 15,000 plus the tax stamp for a full auto and semi auto selector M-4 A4 colt. It takes about 6-9 months to clear the background check and the ATF can invade your home to check the status of the weapons location without a warrant. Class 3 license holders get inspected at least two times a year.

I apologize for my ignorance. A quick google search revealed that they sell for around $7000. Someone I work with has several full autos and he said he got his for $2k + the $200 stamp. He never mentioned anything about the inspections.

Yeah...I have ZERO desire to navigate the hoops required for class III.

Just something different, that's all. Seems a cheap toy that would be fun.

I don't buy guns to sell later. The only time I have sold a firearm, it was because the more I used it, the more I grew to not like shooting it. My AR's don't fall into that category.
