Since its a machine gun it is controlled by federal law (possibly in addition to state law). The ATF will not approve a Form 4 (which is needed to transfer a machine gun to a different person) if the applicant is under 21 years old. I assume that you know that MP-5s (that a normal citizen could buy) are currently selling for ~$8000, right? Kharn

keep in mind, not full auto. i saw one for 3590.00 the other day. its semi auto not full auto. so, i dont think it is technically a "machine gun" but can i get it when i am 18, which i hope so. but i will wait till i am 21 if i must.

Jesus Christ, hk 94?? Someone has wayyy too much money. please do share the wealth with me =D. BTW, the Hk-94 is a 9mm caliber. I'm pretty sure you cannot purchase any handgun caliber until you are 21, so i suggest getting a 91, or 93...hehe much more fun. 91 packs that bigger .308 punch.
