I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at.

I see you're from Switzerland, which leads me to believe it's a machine gun.

The magazine size also leads me to believe that it's 7.62x51.

You are right, in my hurry I forgot to name the toy. Its a Swiss Arms SAPR 751 in .308 as you already found out, basically the big brother of the SIG SG551. And yes, it is select fire, but somehow it does not have burst, which makes me want to call Swiss Arms to ask where they left that one...

any good AR or SiG is around 3k$ in Switzerland though

jeff, one of my friend had reliability issues with the 1st hundred rounds.. failure to eject.. but these were the first batch of SAPRs, and it was with south african surplus ammo I believe. Now it runs like a charm

Thanks for the heads up Shung, I have yet to shoot this bad boy. I plan to use German G3 Surplus from Men, lets see how that works out.

I paid 3995.- plus 300.- for select fire (you gotta hate SAN for that stupid policy).

Sadly not... that would be the 551. One day I hope I have that in my collection too.


Asking how hard they are to get:
- Normal Rifles: Send a copy of your ID, criminal record and filled out form and then the police will either grant it or deny it. Depending on given information and what they found out. Costs: 50 Bucks

- Select fire Rifles: Send a copy of your ID, criminal record and a filled out form and then the police will invite you for a interview, they will ask you many questions, evaluate you and then either grant it r deny it. Depending on the given information and what they found out. Costs: 150 Bucks

Not really no, it is just something I wanted to have. I am more of a collector than a shooter. But I do enjoy both.

none of that for me in Geneva.. I got my first FA gun (an M4) 1 year after my first gun... I just filled the form, and I had my permit sent home 5 days afterward..

Also, remember to mention that you have special storage rules for FA guns. the BCG must be stored outside of the gun.

Well, actually I am incorrect.. it states that "the BCG must be locked (in a safe, for ex)" It doesnt say it can't be in the gun...

its just that many people don't have big safes for the gun, so they just lock the BCG...

but honestly, I dont see how a FA SiG SAPR is your best home defense gun anyway ;)

Actually just ordered 2'000 Rounds for 850.-. So not that bad. But I heard from some guys that the SAPR damages the brass, so it cant be used for reloading.
