Awesome video for prepping and firing the Mac 10 at the range. Now that's a suppressor.
Awesome videos. Factory boxed, literally a blast from past.
I so wanted a Mac back in the day. Although I wonder why they specified such a high cycling rate (1200 RPM), twice of an Uzi. I think it forced them to go with an open-bolt design (on the full auto version) to circumvent round cook-off. Not only did it just waste ammo, it made the gun notoriously inaccurate, a real spray-and-pray situation.
But I still wanted one.

Wow some rarified air in that bag. I'd have a hard time cutting into that bag.
I got a M11 for under 3K a long time ago. It was fun, but the plastic mag feed lips would melt and the rounds would volcano out of the top. 1 of many finicky issues with it.
But it was fun to take people to shoot it. All smiles as long as the plastic mags were brand new or I scored some metal mags.
Great video, thanks for posting. I would be like Ralphie from a Christmas Story unwrapping that beauty
If you still have it, Recon Ordnance makes excellent metal mags for the M11/9. Or used to, anyway.
My hovercraft is full of eels.
I've wanted one ever since I saw Escape From New York
But then I saw Night of the Comet.

And that broke the spell. What can I say, I was raised by the media.

Mistake not my current state of joshing gentle peevishness for the awesome and terrible majesty of the towering seas of ire that are themselves the milquetoast shallows fringing my vast oceans of wrath.

After a health scare a few years ago I decided I was going to buy guns I regretted not buying or had sold and kicked myself for afterwards, fortunately there isn’t many that I’d regretted selling … the MAC10 was one I’d wanted “back in the day” too.
After intermittently perusing GunBroker for over a year and watching the $$$ keep going up I bought an M-11/nine that has been converted to Sten mags and included a first generation Lage upper as well as the original 6” barrel.
It’s not as much fun as my M16 or HK registered sear, but it does scratch an itch that the semi-auto can’t (I bought a semi first so I know first hand)
If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.
I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either
I have not fired a MAC 10 since Monday. I am not sure how many rounds I have put thru a variety of MACs over the years. I have never fired one past 50 yards. At 50 yards, I can keep most shots on the paper of an NRA 50 yard pistol target, firing in semi. At 25 yards, firing in full auto, I can keep most shots on the same size target. At 7 yards I can keep most shots in the black in full auto. I think it is a neat gun. If I could only have one MG, I would not pick a MAC. But if a MAC was the only MG I could have, I would not be unhappy.
I bought one in 2008 for 4K. It is a bullet hose!!! 45 cal. Was re parked and completely redone. Got 10 original mags Cobray marked. It is a ton of fun. Won’t sell it even though I rarely shoot it these days. Kids can fight over it.
Would love a full auto AR or mp5sd.
Nice. I remember when the Lage first came out, 15-ish years ago. You could still get NIB M11/9s for under $2k. There were dozens on the market, unfurled. I was sorely tempted. Partly to get a full auto, but mostly because I love the engineering ingenuity of taking a crap product, legal restrictions, and seeing a market gap to make a reliable, cool product.
But, inside a year, going rates more than doubled, and last I looked, they’re more than $10k. Just another one of those things I kick myself about not getting when I had the chance.
