In Great Britain there is a hell of a market for replicas and blank firing firearms. Their laws are so stringent regarding guns that even some replicas are forbidden.
For instance a MKb 42 Assault Rifle replica sells for $1,895.99. This is a display piece only, (doesn't even fire blanks).
In fact it's so real that you can't:
Purchase it in California or Kansas without ordering a frame or presentation box with it.
Cannot be shipped to New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, or Minnesota because it's a post 1898 replica.
Can't be shipped to Canada or overseas.
What a waste of $1,895.99. What's even stranger is that 50 rounds of .380/9mm blank ammo goes for $45-$50. Sure glad I reload the real thing.
