In Ontario, Canada, we do have a company named Marstar that sells a semiautomatic version of the MP38 (not MP40 though).
Last year they were in the low $3,000 figure. At least they are restricted and can be shot (in a handgun range).Collectors, military history enthusiasts and 'living history' re-enactors are urged to take advantage of this unique opportunity to acquire these German made, 'waffen' marked guns: supplies are extremely limited as the BD-38 are individually made in extremely small quantities. As with SSD's BD-44 and BD-3008, extensive research and engineering has been invested into recreating these famous firearms even to the point of stamping them with authentic-looking 'waffenamts'! Everything except the 'semi-automatic only' fire control system (please note the BD-38 will not accept original trigger group components) - including the machined mag well and under folding stock - is meticulously reproduced to resemble the unobtainable originals.
