Yeah, I was looking at the prices for BAR's recently just for fun. It is going to be years before I even seriously consider purchasing one. For right now, it's just a long term goal. I'll stick with rifles and maybe a pistol or two before I got for any kind of fully automatic weapon.

Maybe you would be interested in a .30 cal, belt fed, Browning 1919A4 converted to semi-auto for your collection.
Mark is a good friend of mine, that buys fully auto Brownings from the U.S. Government. He then converts them to semi-auto using his own design.
The last time I checked, his test weapon was well over 20,000 rounds and still hasn't failed. $1900 is a lot less than 10k for a BAR. Here's his website http://www.blackbear.netfirms.com/index.htm

If I could legalydo it, I´d have my Bren Mk1* reactivated. I own several deacts, a .30M1 Carbine, a Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 rifle, a PPsH 41, a Sten Mk2 and a Bren Mk1*. I don´t want to go through the hazzle of getting a gun permit (getting one for the PPsH, theSten and the Bren would be nearly impossible for me anyway) at the moment.
Since I´m a member of an official Dutch living history group, I can probably get a licence by the Dutch government to blank adapt them, but then I couldn´t bring them back into Germany. Next month I´m going to buy a .303 Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk1.
