How rare is a transferable M16K LaFrance weapon?  Seems like I read somewhere that only a dozen or so exist in the transferable state.

Anything he did is sort of rare in that he only did so much work?  Most all of his designs are sort of experimental type, but he took a lot of different approaches to solve common issues.  He's still around, saw him at the SAR show a few years back, certainly someone has his contact info and you could ask him directly?  I first met him at that show and he seemed to be very open to communication and a genuine nice guy.  Hopefully someone can PM you his contact info?

Six year old contact information at the end of the 2014 SAR story.
