MasterPiece Arms MPA22-T Pistol

The MPA22-T Pistol is a new MAC-10 styled pistol chambered in .22 LR. From the press release …

The MPA22-T has a 5.25” threaded barrel with muzzle break, 1:16 barrel twist- RH and comes with a 30-round polymer magazine. It has 3.3 lbs trigger pull and a Parkerized finish. Because it was developed from the Mini 9mm frame, all available Mini 9 accessories will fit the MPA22T platform.

This new MAC is available in both the traditional top-cocker version (MPA22T-A) and as a side-cocker/scope mount version (MPA22SST-A).

I like this.

    wooooo….for some reason I like!

      can’t imagine a reason to have one, just had a friend bring me one to look at cause he was having problems with it(misfires), firing pin too short to do more than barely mark the casing( no more than .002 indent) when it did fire, it doesn’t group, unless you call 6″ at 30 ft a group, sights are terrible, 4 plastic mags from MPA with 2 different styles of followers and .040 difference in openings at the top, no 2 measured the same, front sight is a bent piece of front site housing with no support, only site adjustment is to bend said piece, no adjustment to rear hole in piece that sticks up in the back. If you fix the firing pin, get over the poor sites and don’t care that you can’t put the bullets you are burning through it where you really want them to go, then it’s only money and it’s yours to do with as you see fit. but there is nothing I can recommend here

    Looks a bit cheesy…

    Geddit? Cheesy Mac? Cheesy M- Ah, never mind.

    I wonder what the trigger slap is like on the .22’s. Does anybody know of a fix for that because the little clear, rubber boot they slide over it doesn’t help much.

    What purpose does this even serve? No way is that for hunting or sporting use.

    Exactly! 🙂

    Hope they sell all they canmake.

  • Pete

    That looks like it could be fun. Not practical but fun for blasting

  • Tony


    For some reason, I find my self asking yet again: Why?

  • Lance

    Worthless like a real make ten. A 1022 or MP-5(.22) is a lot better choice.

    Because it’s a .22lr and .22lr are fun to shoot. You don’t have to worry if you have enough money to eat at the end of the day with .22lr ammo.

  • Looks like a fun plinking gun. Shoot up a 500 round brick on a nice summer afternoon and it costs less than a couple of beers at a local pub. Worth spending the money for some fun.

    The little Jeff Cooper on one shoulder says, “Don’t buy one! It’s useless!”.
    The little Don Johnson on the other shoulder says “Hell yeah! And get a bren Ten too!”

  • Mac_Trekkie

    Ok, thats CUTE!!! Does it also come with a low capacity magazine for easier carry? Cyclical rate? Price? Ok, nevermind all that, I WANT ONE!!!

    As long as its welded together properly and feeds worth a damn, it should be nice. If that really is a 3.3 pound pull, it could be amazing even. But, given the rep MAC’s have, this will probably be in the same league as all the other tec/wannabe gangster um, stuff out there.

    Yeah, it probably is completely pointless, but man, it does look like fun 🙂 I can see suppressors coming out for this in short order, if not already on the drawing board at least.

  • xstang- I know the MAC has had a bad rep over the years, but let me tell you, I have toured the MasterPiece Arms plant in Georgia where these things are now made, and I would like to ease the minds of anyone who may worry about previous reputation. The guys who now own MasterPiece Arms take this gun very seriously. THey put passion, hard work, and acute attention to detail into every MAC they produce. These aren’t the guys who made the earlier versions of the MAC. These guys are the real deal and they cut no corners in their work! They want to bring the MAC back as a quality, fun firearm with new innovations that offer something to every shooter. Give em a try! You will Love these guns!

    No matter what people think I know it will be fun at the range to shoot, and it will get plenty attn.. It does look cool and its cheap to shoot. I just gotta find a dealer in my area!!!

  • Its a well built .22lr from MPA that offers a cheaper platform for shooters to save some money. Its a bit finicky on the brands of ammo that it likes to shoot. we sell some upgrades for it already that make it more comfortable to shoot.

    There have been so many different companies who had “failed” after they took on the MAC, that I was quite skeptical about owning one. Everyone kept saying that Masterpiece was the best kind to get, and I like the design of the M11/9, so I bought an MPA30 just for fun and couldn’t be happier! The mechanics are VERY simplified, and the only issues I ever had with it were ammo related. I don’t like the finish, but other than that I love the gun. I think a 22 would be way more affordable to shoot, but I think the curved magazine just kind of ruins the MAC look. Probably wont be able to bumpfire it very easily, but my wife likes the MPA30 so much that she wants her own MAC, so I am looking at getting her the 22 for Christmas.
