It is fair, but good luck finding the barrel, and the mp44's marstar has cannot be imported into the country. IOC is working with the company that makes the guns marstar is selling. They are having to produce some parts in the usa to make them import compliant. Much like the fals ect... Also Like I said, unless you have a registered mp44, you might want to see what the deal is with making a semi from mp44 parts kit. Im sure someone has done it, but I would be sure of the legalities first. You will probably have close to the cost of a new, legal, nonrewelded semi auto in this gun once you get through with it and I can only imagine it would be harder to resell a home made semi than a factory made one for the same money. That is just my opinion and personally I cant imagine having over 4000 bucks in anything that wasnt nfa or shot less than 1 moa, but again, thats just me.
