    Default Need an educated advice M2 belt-fed .50

    I would love to add M2 to my gun collection, but I'm overwhelmed with the too many options out there.

    Should I buy transferable full auto or semi-auto?

    If semi-auto which manufacturer has good repetition?

    Should I get the QBC or Regular HB?

    Thank you in advance

    I did a TON of research when I bought my semi auto in 07. Central wisconsin armory was my pick. Stay away from TNW.
    I had trouble in the field and called ed, he walked me through it. The guy builds works of art IMO.

    How deep are your pockets? A running semi-auto cost 15-20k while a transferable (if you can find one) goes for @ 70-90k depending on condition from what I've seen. Their may be kits out there for cheaper, if you have the ability to build out a semi. I'm sure there's a few guys on here that know where to find something like that.

    I Heard that price vary by make and condition.

    In 2008 I found a transferable full auto Browning M2 in an excellent condition for $15,000 at Vally forge gun show and I spent $10,000 on a Barrett that day, I regret not buying the M2 every day.

    I hate driving far. If someone would have one close to me I'd go. I have about 800rnds I'd like to burn up (all colors).
    I want to reload some fresh stuff afterwords for future use.

    Back then transferable right hand side plates were 15-20k I can only imagine what they are today.

    Didn't you have two barretts for sale here years ago? I kick myself in the ass for not buying them, they were dirt cheap.

    The ones posted here were about 6k each, brand new. It wasn't that long ago either. Probably 6 years or so.
