I know there's a finite number of them out there. I came across one today that was within my means and got to thinking if this would be a good use of money. I might take it out 2-3x per year to run some rounds through it. No need or intent to sell for a profit, but am wondering if this is a good place to park some money in a toy I can also enjoy once in a while.
Depends on what it is and details. http://machinegunpriceguide.com/ tracks them generally.
I'd suggest that many of my pre-ban semi-auto guns have appreciated mor YOY than my transferrables.
That was a good read. The one I'm looking at has a nice upward trending price slope in one of those graphs. But do these ever top out? I'm not wild about going on the NFA registry. But even some of the entry level FA guns seem to be doing better than stainless steel Rolexes.
Specific answers to vague questions are hard. Which version of which transferable are you looking at? Value on these is hyper-specific to make/model/maker/details of the actual gun. Think of it as a classic car (e.g. Hemi Cuda) that's been maintained/restored by a known master of a shop.
It's an MK760. I don't know what all it comes with and I don't know much about these, but have been reading a lot in the last day. I may go back today and look more closely.
So an MK760 vs a S&W? I was just looking at values on them a month ago. Seems $12-13k is the low side of fair. Extra mags helps as they’re increasingly hard to find
Went back today. It's $12.5k and comes with two mags. Meh. I found a way better deal on an NFA forum, cleaner gun, lower price, more mags, probably no sales tax, etc. I'm going to be doing something in this area soon, just have to find the right deal. No hurry at all in getting the gun in my hands. Just want to lock in on price.
When it comes to transferables a little here or there is not as important as dealing with a trustworthy seller or SOT. You'll be waiting quite some time and it's a used car in value in play.
That MK760 must be the one at Scottsdale Gun Club. That one was on the market back in when they first opened in 2004. I think it sold for about $6 K. Talked to one of the guys there about 2 weeks ago. He said that the owner just decided to sell it off.

Yes, that's the one. But it's a total beater compared to a few others for less $$ I'm looking at. I don't think I want to spend what it costs to get to the next level of machine gun and I really didn't care for the Mac 11 I shot long ago.
Well, I bought one, way cleaner and cheaper than the one at SGC. I'd love to discuss this stuff more, but am not sure where this thread belongs. Now the long wait begins.

Yeah, the closest match is the Suppressed Weapons subforum. That's where most of the NFA discussion is taking place.
Divided we stand.

Rick - You are going to LOVE this MG….I owned one for 10 years (my stupid a** sold it many years back) and the best way to describe this MG is - It runs like a top of the line sewing machine….Without question, IMO, the closest MG in quality for the price that you can get to an HK…..Mine ate anything I fed it and the only extras I had were extra mags and a second barrel. Also - no recoil either….
Congratulations on your investment and purchase. I still kick myself almost weekly for selling my MK760 and my AC556.

That looks super clean. Nice score!
Divided we stand.
