Realize this had been covered about 12 billion times, however, have a friend who has the hots for an MP5 and is thinking of getting ride of his in bound WH M1 - which does not work (nothing a parts kit and/or PK could not fix ;-).

Wondering what a fair price is now days ... assuming some where around a dozen grand plus or minus a couple grand.

Appreciate any pointers on or off the board.

If we don't trade, then neither end up for sale and we just go on, and I shoot the NIB MP5 sear gun (ok, no box and is only new paint on top of welded sheet metal ......) and get by with just one Thomson (besides really "need" a '28 vs. another M1).

I'd sell my M1 WH for 8000 if I could get a 1919 for less than 9.
