Value of a M20 A1 semi by Military Armament Corp., Marietta GA


2 posts in this topic

I chased this carbine 7 or 8 years ago but had forgotten about it and owner called me out of the blue recently. This is one of the 12 production models, not one of the first 4 prototypes that are on machine gun receivers and papered as such. I know the fellow who has one of the transferable 4 and he says the 12 semi’s have never surfaced publicly until this one popped up in 2011, in fact no semi M20 A1’s were found to include in the recent The Mac Man book 

I have a collection of open bolt semi firearms and have samples of all the 7 various RPB Industries Mac’s produced, so this MAC M20 A1 9mm would dovetail nicely in my collection but my focus has changed to AK’s these past 6 years  

..but a firearm can be genuinely rare, only one of a dozen produced, and even have some historical value... but some times a firearm can be too well unknown to be a unicorn to anyone.

i don’t want to buy a boat anchor that is essentially so unknown that I loose a ton of money on it. 

Whadda you think $$$ ?

SADLY "RARE" means nothing when it comes to value and it can often be the only reason something has a low value. check out the value of a 20's era PIERCE ARROW COUPE and you will see a perfect example. just not enough to go around, no parts, etc. it seems almost ALL the variations of the MAC carbines where either never assembled or broke down, because other than one example I viewed at the GREAT WESTERN that was it, while the complete uppers showed often and for little money. last year I bought a lot of mac parts at auction and they only pic'd the complete upper and an additional stripped brld upper with 8 or so other "sub gun " uppers and parts in the description. got it all for less than $250 . all the long stuff got tossed on a shelf and has not moved since.
