Yep.

Hosing down the popup targets that are 800m away sure is fun

I wonder what the .gov pays for those??

Link Posted: 1/3/2006 1:45:39 PM EDT
who would spend that much on a NFA item?

I mean how many MP5s, M16s, MG34s could you buy for that amount?

Link Posted: 1/3/2006 1:52:41 PM EDT
brand new post samples from FN direct cost around 6k, 175k is the going price for the few that are available to civilians. Thats a price for someone who makes 300k or more a month, not for us regular working fellas. Hell i've always said that if i win the lottery i'd buy a mini gun and they run roughly 300k maybe even more. I've seen transferable M249's (SAW) go for 150-175K, Its crazy if you ask me but there is a market for these and they are very rare. McM

I'll take two. I think it would be nice to have a spare.

I refuse to buy someone 3 2006 Corvettes for something I'd shoot once and put it in the safe afraid the next time I shoot it'd depreciate $40,000
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 3:31:00 PM EDT
Holy Shat! Looking at that makes it easier for me to spend 15K on a m16 or 6K on an uzi..

damn 175K - my god...Maybe Bill Gates?

I'd rather have the M240B than (3) Corvettes for the same price. The Corvettes will depreciate horrendously over a 10 year period, and they will tear up more!

if i had the disposable cash to afford one, i would shoot it until the thing fell apart. guns are tools, and in this case a tool to make me smile. guns dont make people smile sitting in safe. they make me smile when im melting barrells.


like i said, if i had the cash, by the end of the day of me getting it, it would have around 2-5k rounds through it.

it would be around 50-100k by the end of the year. (10k$ worth of ammo anyone?!!)

So I have a "wasn't in the military" question.....to be transferable, it would have to be a pre '86 machinegun.....so did those have side-rail ( I assume picatinny, or 1913? ) attaching points 20+ years ago? Just an observation....struck me as a more "modern" addition.

I'm not shure how much the gov pays for those but they pay about $400 for every m16 they might pay about 6-700 for each one

I bet they pay even less than that for those M16s and SAWs.

I remember talking to a local Police officer who said they were getting rid of all thier old Colt Carbine (full auto) for new Colt M4s, even though they planed to lease them for 7 years the entire police force would get new M4s for 7000 dollars on a lease. ...... And the police force is pretty damn big too.

I would guesstimate that the gov pays around 400 to 500 for one of those pieces from FN. And even less for an M4 or M16
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 5:31:34 PM EDT
@$%# that, if you really want to go shoot one of these things, I'm sure you could take a trip to some country and shoot one for less than that. 175K for a gun seems way too much. You could put that money to better use...

That 240s fun to shoot and all, but for a real good time you gotta have THIS



ETA:
Unit Replacement Cost: $13,758
Your probably gonna end up paying 250,000 If there were any transferrable one available.

12,000.00

at least the Marine Corps did.
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 5:48:23 PM EDT
If you join the Marine Corps you will get to handle it but it will be the M240G, and its not yours so you dont have to worry about ruining it and the spare barrel when you fire off 1000 rounds!!!

No.
See the two-tone look? The top cover isn't orginal.

For $175K it better have all the original parts
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 6:40:35 PM EDT
It must be built off a FN MAG58 or M240C receiver the M240B didn't come out until some time in the 1990s. In 1986 the Army was still using the M60 and M249. But the Bradleys IFV had the M240C back in the late 70s.

OMFG! That thing is worth as much as my house!

And it's IN STOCK too - somebody better get it quick!

(Nice catch SIGthusiast. Good conversation piece alright)
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 10:27:42 PM EDT
The top cover is anodized aluminum that is why it is different colored. It looks to be a genuine article. But as far as I know the M240B did not exist at the time of the 1986 gun control act. It has been retrofitted though because the handguard rail system (introduced in 2002 or so) did not exist at the time of its serial number 27,xxx. I like impact but they always charge way too much for their stuff when it comes to Class III. I wonder how it ended up on the market-maybe there is a loop hole in the 86 law that nobody knows about. Or they purchased one as dealer sample and are just dangling it as a carrot for that much money because they know none will will pay that much for it or question it.

Noticed that to.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 8:34:20 AM EDT
If I remember correctly, the guns were originally purchased by Dan Shea (of Small Arms Review fame) direct from FNMI in SC.. As long as the receiver was registered before 1986, thats all that matters...

Qualified on one.. Nice.. Allot more reliable then an M60, fires a bit faster, but I would not want to hump it through the woods...

The US Military pays for about $6000 for an M-240B. The M249 is around $3000, and the M-16A2 is around $450.
