How can you tell they are all Semi ? The Uzi has a 10 inch barrel, making it at least an SBR. From what I can see of the bolt, it is not slotted though the picture (or my eyes) are not that clear.

I think second from the right is a Czech Scorpion.

See http://world.guns.ru/smg/smg26-e.htm

Under the picture at this link, http://media.militar...r-Gun-Works/aad, it says that they are all semi auto only.

Don't care what the caption says, there aren't any Walther MPK or MPL semi's. And although there are a few semi Sten/Sterlings, most were full length rifles and very few SBR's.

In short, I think the caption is wrong.

Third from the right is a Franchi LF-57. Some semi versions were imported in 1962 with 16 inch barrels. Some of those may have been converted.

Believe the one below the TSMG is a Yugoslavian M49. Their version of the PPSH 41. The one below that is a Yugo M56. These both shoot 7.62 x 25mm.

I invited the website owner to join www.machinegunbooks.com and to explain how he knows that these guns are all semi-automatic. blink.gif smile.gif Regards, Walter

One of the preceding pictures states they are legal in Canada. I wonder if that has anything to do with them being semi-auto, even they look suspiciously like they are full-auto. The picture also sais all the firearms are owned by only three people.

To the best of my knowledge in Canada a full auto gun could have been converted to semi by welding the selctor switch. A friend of mine imported many Bren guns, welded the sw and registered them in Canada as semi autos. - not any more however. These could be semi's
