I paid 1000 bucks for my RAPID FIRE 1919 semi. that included the Israeli A6 accessories, MG42 AA tripod, 2- 250 round cloth belts and a manual.
Same reason FALs and such are worth more parted out- everybody wants to build their own. Try plastic model kits- the built items are worth nothing compared to the boxed kit.So with parts kits prices climbing, how come the semi guns dont sell for more ? Maybe there should be a pinned thread on who makes which new parts ?
I think it depends on who built the gun. The low end I've seen, from any normal vendor has been about $2500. Private sales, home builds, there's been some cheaper stuff out there. The old days of Allied Armament builds at $900 are long gone. I am at about $3,000 for a USGI spec build on new receiver parts. But I've been too busy catching up on existing work to build anything new for sale.So with parts kits prices climbing, how come the semi guns dont sell for more ?
hehehee, I like your style. Never, ever, pass up a chance to stir the pot!!Try not to sprain your digits typing too fast, but I just saw that Doug Oefinger of DLO has an ad in Subguns dot com selling some of his 1919a4 parts kit stash pile. All early and NICE. I think I may have seen saw-cut mentioned.
Annnnnd, there OFF!!!!!!!!!! :rofl:
