Banned?

Being sarcastic because it's semi-auto?

There are those who would ban all semi autos. I was being sarcastic, as if a gang banger would get this one.

Dunno why the price.

From the link I see it's an experimental prototype.

Serious (rich) collector's only and not for carrying or ordinary shooting practice.

I assume so. Certainly can't get replacement parts.
Cliber is an oddity too

Here is a guy firing a Steyr Mannlicher 1905


At around 2:22 he realizes that he broke it :o also :D as a collector :x

Thing is that modern loaded ammo might be hotter or less hot than the stuff the gun was designed for. I have one of those and I really don't think that I'd fire it. Maybe. But I sure as fuck wouldn't post a video showing me breaking it.

I could see buying it and donating to the West point military museum. They are thin on Mausers for some reason.
