I need clarification on that. Last I checked "transferable" MP5s were selling for about $50K and up. And there was a shortage of them on the market.

Perhaps the ones you heard about were only Law Letter or NON-transferable?

Heck even semi-automatic MP5s from HK are worth a few grand as potential hosts. I am very confused by your post.

ANY amount of shipped ammo, whether it be 1 round or 1 MILLION rounds. We have to pass a background check to purchase ammo.

That I can see. If I'm a police department I'd prefer 223 caliber M16s to MP5s.

Have you checked out the Holosun SCS MOS???? I'm not a Glock guy, but those things look NICE for them. Still waiting for them to make one for a gun I own and then I will jump on them..........

You prefer the Holosun over the Trijicon RMR?? In my opinion the RMR has always been top dog

Just a great footprint on the MOS system. Looks like it was from the factory. Such a nice package on the Glock.

i got the .22 WMR version and people go crazy about the bang and fire of that tiny tiny round

the design of the AMT is just great. a nicer grip (wood) and some updated details would make it a really cool pistol... too bad they died

.22 wmr is really fun!

I was wondering how it was even fired like that! Should be no visible dot when looking thru the wrong way, right?
