  1. WTS:Powder Springs M10/45 Like new W/Box

    Hey, just a quick question for you if you could be so kind. Would I be correct in assuming there is one more digit in the s/n of this gun after the 597? I ask b/c I have one that’s within a few hundred of what I think is this one and I’ve been trying to figure out when mine goes C&R. If it’s a 597x gun that gives me a real close approximation. Thanks.

    Glad to hear your doing ok Roy! Hope everything worked out well with the recent surgical consult. Boy, you sure did have us worried that night! You’re all anyone talked about that night. At least it got us off the new nickname. =D. Hope you make a decent and timely recovery! Take it easy bud! Tim
  3. For SWD owners with Lage upper

    Do you mean the m11 .380 or the 11/9 9mm? Sounds like you got a good handle on what to get already. A spare set of fcg parts is good to have laying around, but they don’t routinely eat parts or anything. If you bought an 11/9 I’d probably look into a rifle caliber upper. They’re the bee’s knees. Lage’s is pricey, but there are a few others like the Ultimac in the works that looks promising. Basically, if you see ANYTHING you think you might want for it, just buy it ASAP. This is a niche market, with lots of limited time runs. Cool stuff cometh, and cool stuff goeth, but wise man buyeth ALL! =D

  6. Exploring more subguns, which to go for?

    Well shit Houston, I thought the reason you didn’t like to let folks shoot that micro was you didn’t want ‘em catching VD off it! =D
  7. Exploring more subguns, which to go for?

    Soooo pretty sure is the cat that caught a 5 year bid for improprieties w police dept. mp5’s? Think someone else runs it for him in absencia. I’ve never bought from them, but I have dealt with, discussed potential products I was interested in over the phone because he was in my state. He struck me as extremely rude, and very, very expensive. I was looking for a Mac in 2016 for $5-6k range which was the reasonable going rate for them then. He told me that I was crazy (in a very condescending tone) and that he was paying more for then that for them then as a dealer and his cheapest one started at $7800 which was $$$$ for that time. I thanked him for his time and decided I’d never do business with them on anything at any price in the future. Bought a very nice PS 10/9 w 5 mags, a case and a s/n matching Mac two stage can and a bunch of accessories less then a week later for $6k LoL.

    Gosh, sorry to hear of your difficulties Mike. Plenty of us here hoping for you to pull through. Thank you for all the wisdom and advice you share on here. I, for one, always look forward to your input. Best Wishes, Tim

    Yes.. will be posting to UT, youtube, Reddit /NFA, snugbus, probably here. Pretty much to anyone that’ll listen LoL. I’m just starting w an AR/M16 mag well and later an AK but I know he plans on eventually having mag wells for a myriad of options. Suomi, glock, Thompson, uzi, AK74, you get the idea. If everything goes well it’s gonna make Macs ridiculously versatile. It should accommodate basically any caliber that you can do in an M16 w the added benefit of magazine modularity too.

    Best bet is to check the old uzitalk threads. Here is the original link. It’s like nearly 50 pages deep. I’m not clear on which m11 you bought but you mentioned a .380 upper, which makes me think it’s one of the “baby” Macs? So to my knowledge, Lage has 5.56 uppers for sale for the 11/9 currently available to ship. They’re $3k. He also has designs for the same thing pending for the M11A1 (which is I’m guessing what you would need) as well as the M10 currently pending ATF tech branch approval. There’s also the A&S Tenko pending ATF, which is an adapter to let a Mac use an out of the box AR-15 upper. And finally the “Ultimac” design which is also being developed that I mentioned earlier, w interchangeable mag wells. I’m actually a big fan of that design myself and am actually supposed to start Beta testing that one later this month and will be posting videos and reviews and such. I’ll leave you links for all three. It’s interesting reading material.

    That was a good choice. You know you could always save just a little more and grab the Lage 11/15 upper and scratch that 5.56 urge for $3k instead of an extra $20k. As thumpy mentioned before TheRedneckEngineer is coming out w the Ultimac which should give even more versatility then the Lage (because of utilizing interchangeable magwell), but he’s starting w the M10 first then moving onto the m11. I’m in the same boat as you. I have what would be a REALLY awesome AR host, that I’m dying to get a lightning link for, and I originally got a Mac thinking I’d someday sell it and upgrade. Here’s the thing, after seeing and shooting the Mac for awhile, and getting all the upgrades, .22 upper, Lage uppers, multiple caliber swaps, and all of the other things that are in the works for them, I could never be mac-less. I like them so much I went and bought a second one. Ones going to wear an ultimac and stay configured as an assault rifle, and the other will stay as a smg. I’ll tell you this... I think the Macs currently have more room to increase value wise more then about ANY other mg you could buy (ultra rare high end 1 of 1 six figure guns excluded).
  14. What where you doing today in 1986?

    I was almost 2 years old... so of course the only mg I could really afford at that time was a Mac, so I only ever got the one before the cutoff. =D
