Default Mac 11

I have a select fire M-11 that I bought years ago. There is one just like it at a gun shop near here for $3800. I have never had a problem with the gun but I have had problems with the cheap plastic mags.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

I'll reiterate to check your local state laws.

In that price range the only options I know of are the M-10 and M-11. If you go with either of those I HIGHLY recommend getting the LAGE slow-fire upper kit, make the gun much more controllable and fun to shoot, also allows for the ability to mount a red-dot. The mag's are definitely the weak link with this gun.

Good luck with your search.

I suggest keeping an eye out for one in an auction. Every one in a while here in southern indiana you can find an auction with one machine gun in it. And most of the time they go for reasonable prices because people don't want to mess with the paperwork.

To give the OP a direct answer- yes- there ARE full autos that a private citizen can own in the US- IF your state laws do not prohibit it.

Only those full autos already registered with the BATFE by May 1986 can be transferred to a private person. NO ADDITIONAL full autos can be registered except by dealers supplying Law Enforcement AGENCIES or the military.

The transfer must take place thru a machine gun dealer in your home state. You must be 21. not prohibited from owning a gun, apply to the BATFE for approval of the transfer, file the application, together with your photo, prints, approval from local Chief LEO, payment of a $200 transfer tax, and a jar of Crunchy Peanut Butter. (Just kidding about the peanut butter) Approval seems to be running 6-9 months.

Since there is a finite supply of pre 1987 guns, prices are up. A Mac will run you a few thousand. An M-16 about $15,000. An M60 belt fed- Jesus wept.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
