SAPS use them
Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

Sig Sauer, kinda like Glock except for men.

Are they still in service? According to some Google info the SAPS had 13 105's. Any civilian 105's?

Hi Whirly, is it expensive to maintain the bo105? More or less double that of the Bell 206jr for example?

I have no idea but I am sure it will make your eyes water. 8-[ I know there is a private, ex-German Air Force one now in SA for a private owner, will be ZU registered. Friend of mine that flew them for the SAP said they were underpowered but the later models are a bit better.

250 lt per hour x 3 should be close to the running cost.
