I was in my local pawn shop buying a little Ruger MKII to cut down on ammo expenses and saw they had a Tec 9 for sale $299. It had barrel threads (don't know if Tec 9 even made any post bans before shutting down). I have a Cobray M11 and love it (simple, fun to shoot, no socially redeeming qualities, absolutely no practical application).

So I have been thinking more and more about that Tec 9. Are these things complete POS and a waste of money or is this a decent deal? The last owner appeared to not have the same respect as most of us do for firearms because there was rust on the threading and probably more elsewhere. I think it just needs some TLC.


Anyone? If anyone has one let me know what you think. If anyone hates or loves them, let me know!

That be straight up gangsta, maybe next you can get a lorcin .25 to match it. In all serious though, I would get it. While its not the most reliable, its a good novelty gun and will make any anti pee his pants.

No gangsta, just typical Alabama boy. I like my Cobray a lot. Simplicity in design, EASY to work on and fix, and fun to shoot.Just wondering if the Intra-Tec was similar but it sounds like not. I guess I will just stick to Cobrays as my novelty "gangsta" gun and my FALs and AR's for the serious play. When I go to the range most of the old gun guys look at me like I am some little punk POS anyway when I pull out my Cobray. They may flog me if I pull out a Tec9! I was wondering if these may one day have some value due to their notoriety?

Its ghetto-FABULOUS. I'll lobby to have you banned if you buy it. [):)]

Not accurate and has a reputation. On the other hand, they function and shoot fair enough. For that price, go ahead and grab it. Goofy fun shooting cans. AVOID THE TEC-22; it's the poster child for "jam-o-matic!" Mike

Not a bad price. Mine is a little picky on ammo but otherwise a reliable gun. I couldn't get rid of my Tec-22 fast enough.

decent for the 300, the one I am accustomed w/is as reliable as a morning shit!

VERY FUN!!!

I bought one about 8 years ago. I sold it last year. It was okay. Not terribly accurate but fun to shoot. Mine initially wasn't feeding well with one mag. Very tight mag fit. I left the tight mag in for a couple of months and it seemed to run fine after that. I sold mine when I got my UZI as I wasn't likely to shoot it much anymore. I sometimes wish that I had kept it but I don't think I would buy another, FWIW. My tastes are a little more upscale now. You can get a semi UZI for about a grand, SBR it, and have a really nice shooter. Ohio Rapid Fire also has MP5 Clones if you are interested. These are both more $ obviously. I would say that $299 is a pretty good price on a preban TEC-9. You don't say if it is used or new, though. edited to add: [url]www.vectorarms.com[/url] has UZIs for $875. Add $200 for tax stamp and you are all set. Mags are cheap. Think about it if you can swing it.
