Title 18 United States Code 922(o) states no new machineguns can be made for private ownership after May 19, 1986.

There is a limited number of transferable guns on the NFTR, and a very large demand for these machineguns.

"If you want to play, you have got to pay."

It is much cheaper to pay for a legal registered machinegun than to become a convicted felon and owe a $250K fine.
