Yes WALL ART and for the one you shoot still a valuable MP-40 as the years go by less and less around.And parts will soon dry up.Nobody is finding any hidden stash anymore in the world.And for anybody new coming into the market the GSG will be what they get.
Since many can not afford the entry into just one gun let alone a few now.I remember when o.o. Landies was selling them for $5,000.00 each.and mags at $25.00, Now forgotten history.
And when they brought in the pre samples for under $1,500.00.
Yes laws and market destroyed it all.
And can never turn back that page again.
so will be happy with the cheap shoot and not WALL ART....
In old age.
I remember seeing C&R MP40s advertised in the Shotgun News back in the day being advertised for the "crazy" price of like $2000. I didn't have the money and thought that even a minor ticket would keep you out of the game. Those were the days looking back on it now.
