I have an opportunity to buy an MP5 (HK94) the real McCoy. But it means selling off almost my entire collection of firearms to buy her. I'd have to sell my AR, Beretta Strom, some handguns, an AK......


I really want that MP5, it's always been a favorite of mine.

Would you do it?

if its that good of a price, buy it, flip it (for a profit), and spend the money on investments to buy one later.

Selling your black rifle is like letting go of your child’s hand wile they hang of a cliff, its immoral. I say nay.

You think that anything full-auto is expensive now? You'll kick yourself hard if you don't do it... you'll probably double your money in 5 years at this rate.

Edit: Make sure you keep a .22 pistol for cheap range fun, and at least a cheap police trade-in type of pistol for defense.

I say do it.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 3:50:53 PM EDT
No. Unless you have oodles of money I suggest you don't do it. I had an affinity for those many years ago but do the cost benefit analysis. Are you going to shoot it? After all it is a 2500-3000 gun. Where are you going to get parts? They are not cheap.

I could buy one but the mags cost a ton, parts availibility is okay but costly and I have to sell off some of my guns?

I'll keep what I got before I part with everything to get just one rifle.

Is this an HK94 or a true MP5? If its a HK94 you can find them as low as 2300.00 over on the HK boards..... If its a true mp5 class III item id be all over it if I knew I could get enough outa my collection...
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 3:51:45 PM EDT
Well which is it? MP5 or HK94?

Are you buying a Full auto transferable MP5 or a semi auto HK 94?

I have a HK94 and it is a gun little carbine. I got a good deal on it, $2,700 with the box and 5 mags, before the CA DOJ HK 94s hit the market. The DOJ HK94s were selling for $2,300 to 2,600.

It is you call if it is woth it. The HK94 is a lot better than a SW5 or Bobcat BW5..of course.

If you are buying a full auto HK MP5...then YES of course you should buy one. I really want a transferable MP5, but I can not bring myself to sell of most of my semi autos to buy one.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 3:57:56 PM EDT
No guys, it's a HK94, not the full auto MP5. Sorry, when I said the real deal I meant an HK and not a Bobcat or SW model.

Price is 3200?

I see...

If it doesn't have the fun switch and the associated profit potential, then don't do it.

To add more info...

It was one of the California DOJ rifles that was redone. It is 100% new condition.
Comes with Surefire Rail system NIB, 5 HK LEO curved mags and 2 POF curved mags, HK_Dude's fake suppresor kit for this particular rifle, and the original accesory kit of sling, lock and manual.

This puts a whole different coat of paint on things.....then no, I wouldnt sell a bunch of semi auto firearms to obtain a single semi auto that looks different. If you were talking about a full out Class III purchase, then yes...go for it. For a semi auto that only looks like an MP5 - no, I would not liquidate my stuff to get one. But thats me.

So you are buying Chapperjoe's HK 94? It is in good shape from the pictures. It looks a lot better than mine.

The mags are $50 bucks a pop and the Surefire rail is not cheap.

So you have to ask yourself what are you going to use the gun for. Plinking, range time, collecting, etc etc.

If you read his first post, he already has a Storm, was wanting to sell it among other guns to buy the HK94... I know the rilfe he talking about, its ChapperJoes in the EE... Super nice but not worth giveing up all your guns for .... Chapper is a fine guy with lots of toys, seems to have more money at times than anything else. If i had bought as many guns as he has in the past year, id need to build a garage safe room to hold them all..... Not sure what hes after now, but it must be nice to sell off his HK94...

Super nice rifle, but again.... Dont sell off multiple firearms, exspecialy when one of them is nearly the same gun by caliber and size,,, just to get something because it looks cool...

No fucking way. Subguns get boring real fucking quick.

Edit: and a fuckin' 94? Not even a real MP5? Yer fucking nutz for even thinking about it.

Shit no.

Get a Bobcat Weapons gun (have a gunsmith go through it) or have Ohio Rapid Fire build you one. I saw on the interweb that Bobcat Weapons will no longer be making there HK94 clones, but they may be selling the tooling to Vector.



edited to add

You could build an SBR 9mm AR for a lot less, almost build two for $3200. They are pretty cool too. The 9mm AR is my next project.

If I had to I'd sell all except for my CCW piece and a single AR for home defense to fund a weapon like that. The rest are just toys really. This is assuming its a full auto 94. Otherwise, HELL NO.

If the AK is nothing special, sell it, The beretta as well. Both are easy to come by in the future.

I'd go with selling guns for half the cash, makes it a bit easier and doesnt depelete your collection thus far.

Then no.
You guys need to get your terminology straight.

yes

expecially if its an SD

A $3200 carbine that shoots a pistol round?

No thanks.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 4:57:52 PM EDT
Hell no.

If I was in your position, I'd buy a Colt LE6450, a stack of factory 32 round mags, SBR it and come out of the deal a lot better than taking the H&K option.

What are you gaining and what are you losing?
Is having a shoulder fired weapon is a pistol caliber
worth giving up one in a rifle caliber?

I wouldn't do it.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 5:15:36 PM EDT
Nope
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 5:20:47 PM EDT
No why bother with a handgun cal rifle, not good for SHTF not good for home defense not good for target.

not worth it.
