Which machine gun? Login/Join

posted Hide Post
My first NFA purchase was a Serbu Super Shorty. The dealer though knew my background and brought a large sample to test fire. The absolute most fun was his integrally suppressed, SBR, select fire, 10/22.
That would be my grail gun for sure and I'd have a lot of money left over to buy ammo with!

A BAR would be nice, as would an MP5 with the integral suppressor (might was well dream big), an FNC or an Swedish K / M76.

My personal list?

A few sear packs for the AR series would be high up there, just because the possibilities are endless. And some flavor of MP5.

If I was going belt fed it would be M60 all day. It doesn't get much more iconic and if I'm buying a belt fed, I'm buying it to be the coolest guy at the range. The Gun Of Rambo or bust.

For you?

You're about to spend tens of thousands of dollars on one gun. If the Colt Thompson sings to you, grab one. Just make sure you buy a fedora and some pinstripes to go with it!

Say what?? A bowler, a leather bomber jacket and a big cigar for a-chompin' are the only M1 Thompson duds.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'

Sorry gents, I completely forgot about this thread. It's been a crazy couple of months...

Thank you for all your responses. As I said, this is currently a hypothetical situation. I have a few other things I need before I blow that kind of money on a toy! However, I definitely will be doing so when I can justify it to myself.

MP5 or HK sear pack is definitely on the short list, as is an RDIAS for an M16. I really would like to actually SHOOT the thing, so it'd be extraordinarily convenient if I could slap a .22 upper on it and blaze away. I am set up to reload mass quantities of 9mm, .45, or 10mm also, so that wouldn't be a terrible option.

I tend to shoot by myself, and recoil isn't a huge factor. Belt fed would be sweet but I'm not sure I want the hassle.

My MG experience is limited to a couple of civvie M16s and most of the current issue FA stuff - M4s, M249s, M240B and M240L, M2s, and my all-time favorite weapon system, the HK MK19. I was an infantry guy so I got a lot of trigger time on many of those systems.

I think the obvious choice is an M16, but what I really want is a worn-in Colt Thompson 1921. It's a toy anyway so who cares if it's .45 or 5.56.

Or MP5? 10mm is in my wheelhouse also.

Alternatively, point me in another direction...

For $40k, on a single gun MP5.

Alternatively go for three guns with the $40k.

M11/Nine for it’s flexibility with all sorts of modern day options, look toward Lage and Practical Solutions.

S&W 76, for it’s shear simplicity and perfect rate of fire, not too fast, and not too slow.
Very enjoyable to shoot, quick and easy to clean.
Just a tube, spring, and bolt to bounce back and forth.

John Andrewski Sterling for it’s very cool Storm Trooper image.
Have never fired one but looks darn cool.

That is certainly an attractive option now, considering the new AR and Suomi conversion kits available for the M11/9.

(A base MAC is kinda meh after the initial "wow" factor that you get with any full auto wears off.)

Awesome photos!

RogueJSK, I was unaware of those conversions for an M11. Definitely a cheaper way to get into the MG game, while still offering versatility... hmmm.

Probably a commercial Thompson gun, with cooling fins, a compensator, and the drum magazine.

But a modern 9mm, like an H&K would also be a lot of fun.

And if price is no object, and an unlimited ammo budget, a mini-gun and a M2.

Look at where Churchill has his left hand while shooting the STEN. He knows what he is doing. Frequently pictures show people holding the magazine while shooting a STEN. That can cause jams. Churchill was very knowledgable about guns.

IIRC, he carried a broomhandle Mauser in WWI.

Those are just so cool.

There are full auto versions Wink

He did carry a Mauser C96, but not in WW1. It was during his earlier service in Sudan during the Mahdist War and in South Africa during the Boer War. He actually owned three C96s.

During WW1, he was issued a Webley revolver, but carried a privately purchased Colt 1911.
