    Why are MK760s and SW76 harder to find

    I recently got my MK760 after a year and I was looking at maybe getting another and it seems there are not many on the market anymore.....I know the Class III world is weird I was wondering what’s going on?

    Probably because of 'supply and demand' - cheaper NFA guns allowing for more people to enter the world of automatic arms. Prices are rising, political climate isn't too good, etc. Soon as they become available, someone immediately jumps on it and it is SPF (sold pending funds). I got my S&W 76 maybe 10 years ago, then I waited to find the Gemtech suppressor like you see at the top of the page - that took me 5 years.

    You have some good points, in the last year the prices have really jumped......sure glad I got my MK760 when I did.....most other machine guns are beyond affordable for most people.....
    How do you like the suppressed SW76?

    The S&W 76 with reloads of 147gr you only hear the bolt slap, very quiet.

    I too am looking for a suppressor for my M76. Is the pictured Gemtech a preferred suppressor for this sub-gun? Would it be still in production or a discontinued product? There is a lot of companies advertising suppressors for 9mm full autos. Any opinions I get on a suitable unit is appreciated.

    To the best of my knowledge, Gemtech was designed specifically for the S&W76. It's basically a suppressor built around a ported barrel, with (I think) about 16 baffles all held in place by the tube. Dr. Dater designed it, but it was sold by Long Mountain Outfitters (Henderson, NV). If I remember correctly, LMO has the exclusive rights and I waited at least 5 years before a batch came up for sale. The contact person is Dan Shea, he just might still have some sitting around in a back room.

    What's the going rate for S&W76? Maybe I'll part with mine.

    Ruben Mendiola has 5 S&W 76's left. $13,995.00/ea. I bought mine in 2015 for $9,995.00 (excellent condition) so that tells you what appreciation is doing in the market.

    I wouldn't exactly call the S&W76/MK760/SW76/BRP/Stemple a rare gun (although amongst those manufacturers there are certainly degrees of rarity, plus the Swedish K in either C&R or tube built is rare comparatively.) Ruben's had those five S&W76s for a while probably since they are priced at the very top of the market. I believe the current price is about $12k - $10k is a great deal and $14k is very high. I paid $8.5k for mine in the summer of 2016.

    I paid $7.5K for my 1st SW76 several years ago and $9K for the 2nd two years ago. They seem to sell in the $12 range now days.
