NFA Class III
- FNMI M240B belt-fed machine gun: Chambered for 7.62x51mm NATO
(.308 Win). One of a handful of these weapons available to civilians (See:
Why so few?). "New-in-box" condition; never fired.
Developed from the Belgian MAG58 machine gun, the M240B is the current
medium machine gun fielded by the U.S. military. The rate of fire
is operator-adjustable between 750 and 950 rounds/min. In the "B"
configuration, the machine gun is setup for infantry use, with heat
shield, bipod, buttstock, and handles. The same machine gun is also
used as a vehicle weapon on tanks and APCs, and any M240 can be converted
between the various options (vehicle, infantry, etc.). The manufacturer
claims unsurpassed reliability of 26,000 mean rounds between failures.
$175,000 in cash or trade.
- H&K HK21 belt-fed machine gun: This machine gun uses
the roller-delayed blowback system made famous by the H&K G3 and
MP5 series of weapons. This particular weapon is chambered for the
7.62x51mm NATO rifle round (.308 Winchester). All parts of the weapon,
except the registered sear, are newly manufactured. The registered
sear can be used in any compatible H&K trigger group, including
those that fit convertible MP5 and G3 weapons. $25,000.
- Colt M16A1 assault rifle: This is an original, Colt-manufactured
M16A1 lower (collapsible stock) with a short-barreled M16A2 upper.
Lower receiver is pristine; upper receiver has never been fired.
This is a true assault rifle - selective fire (safe, semi, auto),
detachable magazine, and iron battle sights. Fully transferable,
and registered for all available caliber conversions (9mm, .45, .22,
and .50). With the short barrel, this M16A1 is effectively an M4, with
collapsible stock. As the upper receiver is not a firearm (under ATF
rules), the owner can add any desired upper, from a .22LR conversion to
a .50BMG bolt-action upper. $18,000.
- H&K MP5K sub-machine gun: A compact version of the famous
MP5 sub-machine gun. Chambered for 9x19mm ammunition (9mm Luger,
9mm Parabellum). The MP5K fires from a closed bolt, with ghost-ring
sights, making it one of the most accurate compact weapons available.
The MP5 series SMGs are highly prized by police forces around
the world, and the MP5K is equally popular for those needing very
compact firepower. With a rate of fire of ~600 rounds/min, the MP5K
packs full-size firepower in a tiny package. Comes with magazines.
This weapon is a conversion, from a H&K SP-89 (semi-auto version).
- Briefcase for MP5K: This briefcase can hold a fully-functional MP5K
inside, with remote trigger. The weapon can be fired from the
briefcase handle, with spent brass accumulating in the case. Usable
with MP5K weapons.$1,500.
- Cobray MAC-10 sub-machine gun: Compact, high rate-of-fire (1000+
rpm) sub-machine gun chambered for 9x19mm ammunition. The MAC-10 is a
simple, reliable, boxy sub-machine gun. Many movie heroes and villians
have used a MAC of some form (the title character in Blade has
a modified MAC). Although not as well-used in law enforcement circles
as the H&K series of weapons, the MAC-10 is a decent, inexpensive
machine gun that is fun to shoot. $3,400
- Interport Sten Gun: Reproduction of the
classic Sten gun (Mk II) from World War II. A simple, reliable design that
fires from an open bolt. The weapon has simple sights, being designed
for high volume of fire directed at a general target, rather than
precision sniping. Chambered for 9x19mm ammunition. This is a fun
sub-machine gun best suited to plinking. $3,700.
- Group Industries Uzi: Newly manufactured Uzi sub-machine gun,
using a registered receiver. This is a transferable Uzi, chambered
for 9mm Parabellum (9x19mm). An Israeli design, the Uzi has seen
action around the world, and is a common SMG in use by military and
police forces. Reliable and frighteningly accurate for an open-bolt
design, Uzis are fun to shoot and easily capable of hitting reasonable
targets at 100 yds with burst fire. Rate of fire is ~600 rounds/min.
This Uzi comes with forward pistol grip, 4 magazines (2x 25 round, 2x 32
round), suppressor (dry, no maintenance type), red dot sight and mount, sling, and folding stock.
$8,500 with suppressor.
- Barrett M107 Sniper Rifle: This is the military version of the
M82A1 sniper rifle which is typically seen in gun stores. Perfectly
legal for civilians to own (except in CA), but very difficult to find for sale in
any condition. NOTE: California bans this weapon, as it has a removable
magazine, pistol grip, and is chambered for .50BMG. The rifle is
semi-automatic (only), using controls identical to a standard
AR-style rifle. Chambered for .50BMG, the felt recoil is no more
than a standard 12 gauge shotgun. Due to the .50BMG's speed and
mass, this rifle can hit targets at ranges of at least 1500 yards.
Anyone wishing to try extreme range marksmanship should consider a
.50BMG rifle, and this is one of the best. This rifle comes with scope
and hard-sided transport case. Two 10 round magazines are included.
Manufacturer claims an out-of-the-box accuracy of better than 1.0 MOA
(12" at 1200 yds) with factory ammunition. Used condition, with <150
rounds fired total. Not Class III. $12,000.
- Magnum Research Desert Eagle: Semi-automatic pistol chambered
for the awesome .50 Action Express. The best description of an Eagle
in .50 AE is "Hand Cannon"; firing one is an experience that is almost
universally addicting. This pistol comes in a 24k gold finish, including
the magazines. Desert Eagle pistols are manufactured in Israel, and
imported by Magnum Research. This handgun model has been in many movies,
and the gold finish gives this pistol a distinctive style. Although
firing one of the most powerful handgun cartridges available, recoil is
manageable for even small stature shooters. This is not recommended as
a defensive firearm, but is exceptional for target practice and hunting.
New-in-box, with one 7-round magazine. Not Class III. $1300.
Purchasing a Class III Firearm
Most of our weapons for sale are classified as a Class III weapon under
the National Firearms Act of 1934. This means that additional paperwork
beyond the typical BATF forms needs to be filed for a legal transaction.
In addition, there is a $200 transfer tax on each Class III weapon.
If you wish to purchase one or more of the Class III firearms available,
please contact Practical Defense International to begin the paperwork
process. It typically takes 2-6 months to clear all paperwork for a
Class III transfer.
To purchase one of these firearms, you will need to have a local
firearms dealer who has a Federal Firearms License (FFL) and that can
deal in Class III weapons. If your local dealer doesn't know about
Class III weapons, please contact Practical Defense International, and
we will try to locate a local Class III dealer for you.
Some states regulate (and may prohibit) the possession or transfer of
Class III weapons. Please find out from local law enforcement if your
state prohibits Class III weapons before contacting Practical Defense
International. We will not transfer a weapon to a person in a state
that prohibits Class III weapons.
