I think it would make an awesome pistol carbine too. I wonder what the accuracy would be like on one.

Well, apparently some company called Valkyrie Arms makes some semi auto reproductions of the M3A1s. Doesn't look like they have any in stock though.

with what they designed, probably not anywhere near an M1 Garand!

Wikipedia actually says they are more accurate than the Thompsons they replaced. Hmm. A good barrel would probably help too.

So that's three things to do. Make it semi auto, make it a closed bolt blow back design, and make it accurate.

If it could shoot as well as a regular pistol at 25 yards, I'd be happy.

That buzz saw is sweet! Is that a real AK or a semi-auto?

Semi on the AK. 3 different cycle rate kits for the MG. Still 8mm.

Nice! I understand the conversion on the 42, but I much prefer the original caliber. I've always lusted after a 42. What are the cyclic rates on it and how hard is the ammo to get?

Show off your sub machine gun and as much info about it (since I have little experience with this genre of firearm)
I'm thinking I like the MP5 the best, but PLEASE change my mind..

I still have a few other purchases in mind before a sub machine gun but can't hurt to add to the list
Check us out. We are doing 49 MP5 builds this year. Long story short on that is that all manufacturers get hit with a 10% excise tax when they make 50 or more firearms. So, this year is 49. We have (2) full size MP5 pistols for sale and (2) reverse stretch for sale right now, all in 9mm. Next batch of 5 will include a 40sw full size, a 10mm full size, a K model in 9mm, full size 9mm and a reverse stretch 9mm. After that, should be another mix but will include an SD as well.
Ours are going for $2650 this year, then on to $3000 next year.
All come standard with a picatinny rail, tactical mag release and H-Series Cerakoted by the industry leader (Red Creek Tactical).

Joe of Dakota Tactical builds some beautiful clones, I do have to say that. I have yet to meet him, but my understanding is that he is a great guy to boot.

Jeff of Parabellum Tactical is a great builder as well.

Hope this helps.
