I agree the previous post. There are a finite number of these guns around esp. the colt guns. If there are a few left out there that are in premium condition it is because of the fact that they were not used much in the first place.

It's funny, everyone seems to want that pristine piece but not the discipline to keep it that way. I feel the one I have should be enjoyed but with care so I can pass it along in the family. This is important in all machine guns, as no more will be added to the registry. What we have is it...

The biggest problem I have is finding a place to shoot. Only one indoor range in my area will let me fire full-auto, and that range is over 15 miles from my work or my house. My other choice is to drive 150 miles to my brother's farm. If I had convenient access to open shooting, the ammo bill would be way higher.
