question to the gun enthusiasts here

So after years of enjoying the Stalker series, and having completed CoP a number of times, I've decided to try shooting guns in real life at the gun range as a hobby. I know I'll never be able to shoot probably half of the guns in Stalker out in the real world, but I figure I should be able to try a number of them.

This past week I purchased a Bulgarian made PMm Makarov to use in shooting classes and I love it My main question is how many of the guns featured in Stalker can be legally used in the US like my Makarov? I know many of the NATO arms can be found, though the Warsaw pact stuff isn't always obtainable.

Not a whole lot on the PMm, but I'm told it's quite a lot for its size. It does hurt your hand a little if you shoot off a lot of rounds quickly.

I didn't say they were impossible to find, and as for AK47s, I've seen various versions in the shops but haven't been all that interested in them yet. From what I've seen, a good number of them are replicas or American made rebuilds. Seems that the original Russian stuff is harder to come by, When I was looking at Maks, Bulgarian or East German made ones were easier to find and usually cheaper. Russian Maks were as much as $100 more.

For now I was just curious about the Ukranian made Fort/Fora, or the PB-1, though since it has a silencer I'm guessing that's a no-no for civilian use.

I did see a few auctions on dragunovs (Romanian), though they are way too expensive and I don't think I would be allowed to shoot it anywhere near to where I live

PM(Pistoljet makarova, small m-moderzovanniy) uses 9x18mm ammo which is a bit smaller than 9x19 Standart. But still it's pupular by Russia's police.
I'd like to get FN SCAR for myself, but right now I don't have a chance.

Seems like the Makarov has something of a cult following in the US, cant argue about the reliability, and it packs a good amount of power in a small size. People who have conceal and carry licenses like them for just that reason.

I saw some pictures of an FN SCAR for sale on a website, very sweet looking gun, but expensive!! Seems like all the FN arms are that way. Maybe someday I'll try shooting rifles, as of now I don't even know of a range nearby that will allow them.

If you live in the US you should be able to get almost everything(bar sniper rifles, RPGs, etc.). Even assault rifles as long as they're modified to fire in single shot only.

Good luck paying for all of it though...

If you get a class 3 license, you can by fully automatic rifles as well. Heard that out of all Warsaw guns, VALs and Vintorez type guns are hardest to find in the States. What about SVU's? I have never seen one, but seen a shitload of SVD's. What gives?

Might as well be thorough...

Makarov PM: readily available, mostly of Bulgarian manufacture. Soviet and East German specimens are less common, but qualify as Curio & Relic firearms.

PB / 6P9: not imported. Would require BATFE paperwork to own.

Fort-12: not currently imported into the US.

Walther P99: readily available.

Beretta 92FS: readily available.

Browning Hi-Power: readily available.

Colt M1911: readily available.

SIG-Sauer P220: readily available.

H&K USP Compact: readily available.

Desert Eagle: readily available - if you have a thick wallet!

TOZ-66: was imported into the US decades ago, seems to be out of production in Russia. Can be found on the used guns market, but a sawed-off version as seen in the games would require BATFE paperwork.

TOZ-34: currently imported and available.

Mossberg Maverick 88: inexpensive and readily available.

SPAS-12: out of production and banned from further importation into the US. Available used, but with high price tags. Wears out certain parts quickly and replacements may be hard to find.

Armsel Protecta: uncommon and restricted, cannot be owned in some states.

H&K MP5: genuine full-auto models are restricted and require BATFE fees and paperwork. Unrestricted semi-auto clones are available from a number of manufacturers, but carry high price tags.

AKS-74U: as above. Semi-auto clones with the correct short barrel require BATFE registration, but clones with extended barrels do not.

AK-74: as above. Semi-auto clones are readily available, mostly of Bulgarian manufacture.

AN-94 Abakan: not imported, would be restricted if it were.

Enfield L85: same as AN-94. A semi-auto clone is supposedly being developed in the US.

LR-300: semi-auto versions are available. The rifle has been rebranded as the Para-Ordnance Tactical Target rifle.

SIG SG550: not available in standard configuration. A semi-auto version called the SG556 is available, but does not completely match the look and feel of the original.

H&K G36: same as SG550. The semi-auto version is called the SL-8 and bears little resemblance to the original.

FN F2000: available in semi-auto as the FS2000.

OTs-14 Groza: not available. Could be built from an AKS-74U clone, but would require registration as a short-barreled rifle.

PKM: restricted, with a few in the hands of collectors. Semi-auto clones may be available.

AS Val: not available.

VSS Vintorez: not available.

Dragunov SVU: does not seem to be available.

Dragunov SVD: available in small numbers, highly expensive. Chinese copies can be found, as can Romanian and Yugoslavian look-alikes. A sporting variant called the Tigr is available.

Ob'yekt 62: not available yet.

RG-6: not available.

RPG-7: now produced in the US, but is restricted and not easily available.
