Which one do you most want to have just to keep as a Full Auto toy? No monetary value but just for taking out to the range and playing with, forget such things as transferables, dealer samples and such, new or old, big or small, foreign or domestic the sky is the limit. Its yours forever and just for shooting pleasure.

I would go with the M240, I love beltfeds and that thing is just sexy! I own several MG's and my 1919 is my favorite, but if i could afford the 240 i would have it over everything else.

How about you?

Wow, it's hard to take money out of the equation given the ridiculous nature of machinegun prices but in a perfect world with free ammo, free parts, someone else to link my ammo, etc etc...I would also consider a beltfed of some type, probably an M249 para or something like it...although in that perfect world you also wouldn't have to pick just one. hmmmm....

Anyway in THIS particular world that we do live in, I'd have to go with a subgun.

Very controllable, cheap ammo, relatively inexpensive, durable (hell some are damned near unbreakable in normal use), available parts, easy to clean, etc etc. They really are a lot of fun to shoot and a good way to introduce new shooters to machineguns without freaking them out too much.

We can dream can't we?

M240 also
100 rounds of 7.62 belt feed goodness

BAR or M249.

With an unlimited amount of money I'd put on my slouch hat, get a Vickers in .303 and see how long it could go for without stopping...

Second choice would be a big toss up between a BREN gun and a BAR...

If I could only have one full auto, I'd have to go with an SMG. It would be the most useful to me... start close in, and make sure you can handle things up close before worrying about further away.

I'd probably have to go with an MP5 of some sort... maybe an SD... :)

I think I would have to with an MG3, M249, or a Mk19.

If the Mk19 isn't allowed I would have to pick Ma Deuce.

A MAG58 and a endless supply of barrels and ammo
Link Posted: 12/29/2005 10:55:43 PM EDT
I would probably want somthing a bit portable like an AN-94 but chambered to 223. Supposidly with the 2rd burst mode it is possible for both rounds to go through the same hole at 100 yards. Also an HK51 would be fun as a .308 mag/belt fed option.

All of them

But if only one, an AKS-74U
Link Posted: 12/30/2005 2:33:29 AM EDT
If there can only be one....

I'll take my M16A1.


(Although I wouldn't mind an upgrade to M16A2.)
Link Posted: 12/30/2005 2:38:17 AM EDT
Tough choice! MG42 or M240 for me.
Link Posted: 12/30/2005 3:48:52 AM EDT
MG3 or MAG58
Link Posted: 12/30/2005 5:13:21 AM EDT
i have shot a variety over the years from belt fed to assault rifles to subguns to machine pistols. the only ones that i felt weren't just a boring bullet hose after awhile were the assault rifles. i would go with AKM or and M16 variant.

Stoner 63A
That's just based purely on myth and mystique. Never shot one or even handled one. If I ever get one I might change my mind. 3 others on the "Must Have" list ahead of it.
Barring that I really like the P90.

You can own a transferable Mk19!!!! There is only ONE that is transferable. And has a price tag of $450,000

If I could only one MG I think it would be a HK21E sear gun or 23 sear gun. I know that 21 is not the most fun belt fed to shoot but, with the sear I can use it in a HK91,93,94 and other HK clones.

If money was no object I would take an M2HB and a junkyard full of cars!

does a GE minigun count?

if not, i dig the old german MGs

I'd have to go with a M16. The capability to go from rifle to SMG that easily is a big plus.

You can have a 9mm SMG, an automatic rifle chambered carbine, or (don't flame me yet) you could get a Shrike to take the role of a LMG.

Allright, im back in the real world here for a moment. MK 19, $450,000?????? Thats just crazy! Dont you have to register each round of the 40mm as a DD, isnt that a $200 tax on each one PLUS the price of the round which i have never seen for sale but would imagine it to be outrageously priced just like the gun. So you are looking at ATLEAST $200 per shot. Are these rounds even available to the regular joe if you bought the transferrable one out there? I know people have the M79's i always wondered if they just shot the 37mm out of them or what, anyone know about this?

I almost mentioned the HK21 but went for a couple more portable. It would be my top pick for belt fed as configured below. Note the semi, 3rd burst, and full auto features.

I think a nice M-249 would be cool. You can shoot it from a tripod, standing, or off of the bipod. It uses belts or mags. The recoil is light. It shoots 700-900 rounds per minute. Links are cheap. Ammo is available and cheap. Barrel changes are fast, 10 seconds or so.

Fixed it

It "eats" mags, it doesn't just use them.

I think a M16 would be the most useful.

You can convert it into a subgun if you want. And possibly a belt feed now that it appears Shrike is not vaporware. I'd only go with a sub gun model if it was a SBR and suppressed.

A registered M16 lower seems to offer all the possibilities one could need.

That said auto is only useful for belt fed sustained fire applications and for sub guns, and a Pistol Cal AR is a bit larger than a Subgun needs to be IMO. But you said just one.

MG42 OR 1919 BROWNING

Probably an M16A3
