Hi E, yup. i saw an ad in a gun news rag that had a repo listed at $1,400 or $1,500. It is a ripoff but, they are playing on everyones "need' to have a German SMG. If interested? ill go look for that Ad in the news rags-that had them for $269.00-which IMO, is a great price for these ;-)) Ill be headiong back to that store later today after I check on some Tim Conway tickets I want to get for his appearance here in Feb. Thanks again on the thanks for this piece-i am grinning like a baboon.
