i went to shooters world and they had one and i think it looks cool but i dont know much about it

if i do buy it i plan on doing a Form1 Sbr so i can throw a stock on it

shooters world had theres for around 850ish i cant remember, is that a good price for one of these? it comes with a 10 round mag but i know they sell 20/30 round mags so thats not a problem.

i want to know if they're reliable and worth it i do have a 9mm ar im building but i have 5/6 ars so im getting bored of them lol

i wanted a Zennith mp5 but that $1500 price tag is still too rich for my blood lol

Image

this is what i want when i get the form 1

I have 2 buddies who have done the SBR on these. I think they are a great value. The aftermarket support can get you a better trigger pull and maybe a few goodies. They seem to be quite reliable. I went a different route with a SIG MPX but only because I found it local for a good price. I know my buddies got theirs over at AlphaCat Armory (local, Surprise AZ) but not sure if in stock.

With 41F on the way get what you want now if you use a trust, before it gets more complicated.

Gallery of Guns listed local guys with $750-800 Pricing in their 6/27 email. You can get the trigger pull down to 5# for under $10 with a spring kit.

While I like the MP5 Clones the Scorpion, is a lot cheaper.

I went the scorpion route last month. I read that it puts much less gas to face with the suppressor than the MPX, which I later confirmed shooting them side by side. As a lefty, I like the (mostly) ambi controls.

Cz is doing a 15% off sale for July 4th. They sell their 30 round mags for cheap there.

As a pistol, with the Osprey45 on it

Once the stamp came back

As a suppressor host it smokes the MCX. Mags are half the price too.

F Y I, I haven't shot any steel case through my Scorp so don't count on that. I've sworn off of steel cased ammo after too many fail to extract in different firearms.

My Scorp will look very similar to that as soon as my stamp is out of jail. Should be within the next couple weeks if wait times remain constant.

Gunmag warehouse has had 30rd mages for $15. Currently out of stock but the price is still $15.

The new 30 round mags at czusa are 922r compliant, saves $5 per mag over the non 922 that require a kit. I ordered 9 more last night for $159 shipped with their holiday sale.
