Neither my gun nor my ammo budgets are currently unlimited... hoping to change that.

I'll probably end up getting a shooter 1928 commercial Thompson, with the eventual goal of getting a shootable but all original 1921 Colt. They're just too cool.

I have MP5s (sear guns), UZIs (Vector/Group full-size), M16s (factory Colts), and a S&H sear FNC.

Still on my purchase list are a Swedish K, M60 in e4 or e6 configuration, and a Steyr AUG.

Personally for $40k I would be inclined to buy a HK sear in an all German MP5 host. My MP5-N is my favorite shooter. That said, I also love my M16s. You could buy a factory Colt M16 and have $15k to spare.

Re: the Thompson, every time I start thinking I want a Thompson, I shoot one and am reminded that I don’t actually like shooting them.

If money were no object, I'd love to own an interwar 9mm European SMG. One of the early generation of pre-WW2 SMGs, with high quality production using milled steel and wood, before everyone switched to cheaper stampings during/after WW2.

Something like a MP28/Lanchester, MP34, MP35, Erma EMP, ZK-383, Suomi M31, Beretta M38, etc.

I've got a Colt M16 with uppers, the original 20" 5.56 it came with but also a Colt 10.5" 556, Colt 9mm Commando smg, Colt LMG in addition to some aftermarket uppers one in 5.7, an Ares Defense Beltfed in 223, no-name 7.62x39 and CMMG 22LR to name a few.

HK Registered Auto-Sear and several hosts in 9mm and 223

and lastly, Cobray M-11 with a 6" and LAGE upper

I wasn't able to get into the FA game until after 2012, but even then the firearms themselves were under $40K it the other uppers, hosts and accessories that put it way over your budget


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink
