What is the opinion of the current price for class 3 firearms. Is the downturn in the economy making them drop, and if so, is it temporary?

I have the opportunity to buy some at significant discounts from the prices when I looked last year. I really do not want to put that much money into guns for the long term, but if I can sell them in a year or two, then I would do it. What does the group think about the short term and long term price trends?

I would not buy an nfa item for an investment!!!! I would buy it because you want it. There are too many unknowns to say the price increases will be permanant. With one swipe of a pen everything could change.


The prices right now are lower than they have been but who knows when they'll go up again. Nfa is a toy not an investment.

I second that motion!

That and I hate to hear about that happening. I wish every machinegun was owned privately by individuals who collect and/or shoot them, not just to make a buck. That being said, would I buy some MG that I really didn't want at a steal and turn it to use the profit to buy a MG I really want? Yeah, I guess I might. I just wouldn't tell folks.
