    Ernie is in Willow Grove.

    Ernie also has two operational GE Mini Guns and a third receiver for one. He shoots them at Knob Creek.

    The aircraft gun looks to be a MG-17 Zwilling flexible mount gun, like used in the gunners position in the Stuka, and many others...that is so cool....

    Does Ernie also happen to be into lockpcking and have a pretty decent size YouTube channel? Just so happens this lockpcking guy has two minis and a receiver also. What are the odds of someone having 3 of these bad boys.

    Depends on what type of guns, your are talking about. Something like a C and R mp40 660 steyr 1940 gun, could be easily talking 30-50k. Poulin's Just had a auction with a extremely nice 1940 660 code MP40, all matching including bolt and it sold for 19k plus 18.5 percent. which IMO Is a good deal. Seeing How Morphys sold one in the spring of 2019 auction and it brought 46k, ans it was a FXO 41 Haenel gun all matching. Or I just picked up a Dewat Japanese type 99 LMG for 6K Plus 20 percent. Regular price on these 99 LMGS pull about 10000-18000.

    So is the code 660 MP40 one of the most valuable and rare variations as far as MP40s go, compared to say an all matching but later gun?

    Yes They are out there in the registry, but are very rare to come across ALL matching. IF you are looking for one of the earliest MP40s to add to your collections. That is a gun that has to be on the list. There, and then if you are looking for late war MP40s, your search would lead you to the BNZ44. Which is believed production ceased I believe in October of 44 for BNZ.
