Was going through a catalog from a Swiss shop and thought some might find it interesting to see what's available "over there."

There's about a 1:1 dollar to franc rate about now, .98 usd to be specific... so you can get an Aug for 2950 or so.

Here's the catalog





Never seen a stock on an M9 either...



and finally, a product that used to made by Steyr...

I guess in Europe rules for short barrel rifles are different than here. Would love a shoulder stock for my M40 and my
SPP.

Can't you SBR it and add the stock? I'm not real clear on the NFA rules, so I don't know if that's an option.

Yes, I believe he was saying in Europe they don't differ from "class3" to "regular legal" like we are hit with in the usa

They have to register them all anyway, so short barrel, long barrel, makes no difference.

$200 tax stamp + what it costs to engrave the receiver. Then a pain if you ever want to sell it.
Haven't felt that making a SBR out of a pistol is worth it.

I'll take the 9mm version thank you very much.

The 9mm Para is sweet.

Switzerland is a beautiful nation. They appear to have excellent gun laws and they have enough nuclear fallout shelters to shelter their entire population. Not a bad deal.

Does anyone know if they sell just the 9mm barrel, bolt, and mag adapter in Europe? Would that even work in an US made AUG?

I have a client in Austria. I wonder if there is any way to get myself a kit. (legally of course)

Pete Athens of PJs sells 9mm kits.. He might be able to sell what to want.

I don't think your client in Austria could get you a barrel here legally

$3k for a semi automatic? No thanks. We get them cheaper here!

Yeah and doesn't the government issue them a machinegun anyway when they do their service time that they get to keep for life?

Granted, the prices may be figured differently over there. I.e. The 280 franc mosin.

Repeal the NFA now, or lower the stamp price. It's for our children...

Lol @ that. You think $200 is too much in 2010? Try $200 for a stamp in 1934, when it came out.

If this calculator is accurate, the ATF should have raised the stamp to $3,300 to keep up with inflation.

$200 sucks, but it's nothing compared to how bad it used to be.
