What would you be willing cough up for a fully functional semi auto clone down to the nazi proofs (not sure if that is allowed by law) with 7.92kurz by say someone like wolf?

Just curious.

Assuming its 100% American made, around $700.

Assuming it has alot of original parts, like the grip/stock, bolt or barrel, handgaurd, etc. over $1,000.

You can get ammo by Hornady for $19/20 now, so obviously SOMEONE has a bunch of them. I saw a 60's era catalogue listing them, so they were in the US in a large quantity at one time. What happened to all of them?

Oh and for Wolf ammo, I suggest 130gr. Hollow Point. Casing type wouldn't matter to me, berdan or boxer, steel or brass. It would need to be less than $10 a box though.

Not talking at all about kit builds, talking complete clone builds from the ground up, there is no source to my knowledge of kits or readily available parts.

They would be two grand min. I wouldnt want it in the kurz ammo either, too hard to come by and i doubt wolf will make any. I know someone who has a real nice pristine example and i have shot it, its fun but the ammo is just outragously expensive. I'm not a fan of German guns but i'd buy one if it was under a thousand, it would be a nice addition to a collection, something different. What i have my eye on is the ppsh41 MGS is supposedly comming out with, ammo is cheap, parts are cheap, mags and drums are cheap.

Not just yes, but hell yes. Up to $1500. Mags would need to be made too.

Last time I saw complete parts kits available they were north of 1K. :shock: I think for a completely made US rifle you would have at least $2,500. The DP28 just released by MGS is $2600 and they use Polish? parts kits.

The issue is lots of R&D to produce a semi auto based on a full auto and relatively few sold.

Hell yeah I'd buy an StG. 44 if the price was right :wink: 1k max
1k max? sad sad sad.....come on bump that up to $1200-1600 :goof:
$1200-1600... maybe only if it was really nice :cool: Hell if i saw one in person I would probably drop 2k on one on the spot! You look at all this stuff online and think "Hey thats nice" and when you see it in a store you just flashback to the last time you saw your balance on an ATM receipt wondering if you can afford it :lol:

Rumor has it that they are going to make one for the German civilian market.


They already make a MP38 for the civilian market. It costs about $2000, which is relative, since a Saiga will cost about $800. They made the MP38 because the machined receiver is cheaper to make in small numbers then a stamped receiver. The MP38 sold here seems to be made from original parts, and still fires from the open bolt.


Also, German gun dealer told me that he imported a handful of Semi auto Mp44s from Russia. They were converted at the Molot factory.

As for ammo, Yugo company makes modern, brassed cased 8mm Kurz.
