Spitfire 45 thoughts...

The Spitfire (Eagle Arms was similar) 45 is likely one of the cheapest full-auto open-bolt carbines you can purchase. They sell for around $4,000.

Now, I've seen these things. The upper receiver is steel and fairly well constructed. The lower receiver is aluminum and most look like heck - cheap and ugly!

Some time ago, I saw where someone beautified/modernized one of these full-auto Spitfires. I can't seem to find the pictures and information again, but BOY, did it look good! Personally, I'd say that it really raised the value of the gun, perhaps by a couple thousand dollars. Does anyone know what I'm talking about, or does anyone know of others who have "re-made" their Spitfires to something that looks like quality?
