    None without the proper paperwork and tax stamp.

    I know for sure you can in Arizona, all you need is the Tax Stamp. You won't be able to walk out with the gun same day though, as they'll do a federal background check or nationwide background check, something like that.

    This should help you, it has a list of all the states on the bottom of the page. It also has information about the forms and requirements to own a Class 3 weapon.

    You can in FL, as long as you do the BATF dance.

    A civilian cannot buy a newly manufactured machinegun,they have to be owned prior to 1984 IIRC and can be transferred from one owner to another with proper fees and documents.An transferable M16 will run you around $15,000.a Mac 10 will run around $3500

    I don't think NJ would issue the paperwork. I hope I am wrong.

    You need a class 3 FFL dealer in your state to advise and, if possible, assist you with the purchase. Sellers/potential MGs can be found here:

    On the paperwork you also need a Chief Law Enforcement Officer IE Chief of Police,Judge etc. to sign off that it's ok for you to own one

    A friend of mine applied for and received his class III license/permit here in GA. It was somewhat costly and the wait time was fairly long. He did purchase an M16 - I think he said he paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $12k. It would be sweet to have a fully auto firearm - but I am cheap. NJ could prove to be tough to get a class III - then the firearm. Multiple hurdles.

    I believe the cut-off is early-to-mid-1986 (May?). And those prices sound about right...if you can even get someone to part with one.

    I suggest you do your own research.

    A good place to start is the BATFE web site.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    May 19, 1986 to be exact. Anything before that is fully transferrable to civilians except imported machine guns imported after 1968 (the GCA of 1968 banned importation for civilians, but SOTs can have them with no law letter). Anything after that is SOT or LE/government only. The machine guns I make are LE/.gov only.

    MACs and Uzis are going to run about $3-4K, M16 are around $8-12K, the HK family is $15-25K, and belt fed is usually 6 figures. Most can be had between $3-9K for the most part. Prices are dropping due to the economy. Most common guns are around $8-12K.

    ETA: According to my site, NJ's state court must issue a permit/license to obtain full auto and this is rarely issued.
    07/02 FFL/SOT since 2006
