  1. I recently purchased a Mac 11 and was intrigued by the Lage uppers available for them. I have been thinking about trying to make a customized upper and finally thought of a design that I believe could work. Although, I am unsure about the legalities of proceeding to prototyping my design. I know you can send your prototype to the FATD division of the ATF but that means I would have to make it first and I don't want to accidentally manufacture a machine gun. Do you need to be a SOT?
  2. Making a custom upper for a MG

    Thank you for the information theredneckengineer. That MG 34 conversion from BRP was very similar to what I was trying to do. I guess its back to the drawing board.
  3. Delay in mailing out approved forms?

    My dealer got my form 4 back finally. I submitted a request for a certified copy at 30 days and a week later he got the original form with stamp. Not sure what happened but glad its over with. I assume you are the author of The Mac Man book? I really enjoyed reading it, great job.
  4. Lage Max31a Trouble

    I just got my mac 11 in and tried out my lage upper and the bolt keeps getting stuck in the back of its travel. I have a short mk2 Lage upper and it runs perfect with my lower. For some reason the max31a feels like something is binding near the end of the bolts travel. I cant really figure out what is binding. Has anybody else had a similar issue?
  5. The dealer handling my nfa transfer moved four days before my paperwork was approved by the ATF. Am I going to have to file the paperwork again or can the ATF just update the address and send it again?
  6. Making a custom upper for a MG

    Thank you for all of the help. My first couple designs failed but I recently came up with another idea that I believe could work better. The idea is to make an adapter that allows a Mac m11a1 to attach to a PTR mp5 clone. I attached an image of my idea below. Please note that nothing is to scale and I am not an engineer. I am thinking that starting with an existing trigger pack and modifying the sear arm to interface with the bolt would be the easiest way. To my eye, it should not be able to be fired without the registered mac lower since the hammer would not have spring tension. I am still trying to save up for a PTR so I am sure that the design will change once I can actually see what is going on inside of it. Any thoughts? I would hate to waste a lot of time and then figure out the ATF doesn't care for my design..

    Hello see below
  9. Delay in mailing out approved forms?

    I’m still waiting on a form 4 to arrive approved on 4/24. The wait for my first MG seems never ending.
  10. Does Cerakoting a mac 11 hurt its value? If so by about how much? I know you wouldn't want to do it to historically significant guns but I don't think the mac fits into that category.
  11. WTB: CFW A Bolt 9mm

    Looking for a CFW A Bolt 9mm for a SWD M11A1.
  12. So I found a machine gun that I want to buy from someone local to me. How do you typically do the deal? I know to meet in person and check the form 4 to their ID, but do you typically give them 50% down and 50% when the ATF clears the transfer? I know from individual to SOT will take about 4 months but what is to stop the seller from running off with your first payment in the meantime?
  13. I recently purchased my first full auto a SWD M11a1 from a retail gun shop for $8000. I know I paid a premium to buy it from a retail store but was unsure about how to purchase a class III item from another person without getting scammed. How do you know that the gun someone is selling is actually in the registry and how do people usually handle these deals?
  14. Bought an Aklys Defense Pilum 9mm can and my SOT says Aklys took his money and wont send him his order. Tried to get in contact with them and still have had no luck. Just need a 1/2x28 fixed barrel adapter for the pilum can.
