I have a demo letter for a MP5 A3 post sample SMG. Whats a ballpark price for them? I was going to guess about 1k-1.2k.

Depends on the condition. A decent police trade in will run you about $1100-1300. One in new condition might run $1500 or so. Clydes Armory had some posted on Strum yesterday in that used price range. Good luck Andrew.

I've seen them for $995-$1400. You can get a new one for $1600 or so. Like said above, clydes had some they just posted for $1100 or so.

dont mean to hyjack but, why are cut up mp5's 1800 when police trade ins are 900-1000?

i want to build a semi mp5 and it kills me how much they want for kits. i wish i could just buy the post sample and cut it up myself. yeah i would probably cry doing it but at least i woudl have a chance at affording a kit. end of rant.

Like most things buying individually is more expensive than a completed product (cars, guns etc) Also since post 86 samples are restricted in completed form and parts kits aren't there is a market thats willing to pay for it.

People are willing to pay for it. Why wouldn't you double your money on it if you were a dealer selling parts kits? Pay $900, cut it up, sell parts for $1800. Profit.

no i get that, and im all for making a buck (supply and demand etc) but i just wish i could find a loophole so i could get my kit for a price i could afford. i mean i can buy a vector for about 1200-1300 or a kit for 1800 and then a flat for 200 more plus 922 parts and i just wish i could build it myself. its like how me and a friend just got some century 93's because it was cheaper to get those than buy kits and build. but..... of course one doesnt work and now has to go back.
