    Hon it would take 10k to replace my M82 today;)
    Yes there is something about hitting a 12" piece of steel @ 1,000yrds with a semi auto .50BMG that makes it worth it to me. My MG34 and Sass's MG42 are worth several times the above amount. It all depends on what you want and like I guess.

    Well you need at least one so as to arm that one brother in law who never seems to have any gear when he shows up. Or maybe i'm the only lucky sucker to have one of"those" in laws. :rolleyes:

    My first centerfire rifle was an SKS, all decked out in Tapco plastic. :rolleyes:

    I sold it to fund my first AR, a Bushmaster A2 post-ban.

    I remember those days. My dad was offered a crate of them back in the 80's for $500. There was 10 per crate, packed in cosmoline. He still mentions to this day how he should have jumped on it.
