You're looking at about $13,000.


$1500 is about the price for a post-sample; unless you're an FFL/SOT and have a LEO demo letter in hand, you can't get one. $10k will buy you a transferable sear...but not the host gun in which to use it. As an individual, you're looking at guns generally known as "transferables" - not post samples, pre-samples, dealer samples, etc.

I've seen them sell for $8000-$12000. Add an extra $200 tax per transfer; then add sales tax on top of the price.

If you can find one for much less than $12k these days you'd be a fool not to purchase it. With sears in high demand at $10k, you might get lucky and find one under $12k, but $13k is about average right now.

Get a semi...or if you have to have a full auto, think about an Uzi. A Vector Uzi can be had for about $6k, and I've seen some non-vector guns going for significantly less recently. You might also consider a Sterling, also for about $6k - I have several friends who own both MP5's and Sterlings and many of them say they would grab the Sterling over the MP5 if the SHTF.

This would be a HK94 that had been filed as a SBR (short barreled rifle). To do this yourself you are looking at ~$3500 for the base rifle, another $200 tax and another $1500 for somebody to do the work (installing 9" 3-lug barrel, refinishing, etc).

Or you could buy one somebody has already done all the work to for about $5000.

Less than half what a full-auto MP5 would cost. For what it is worth, my understanding is that various .gov agencies have switched to semi-auto MP5s for various reasons.
