Based on the existing 930SST, MasterPiece Arms (MPA) will introduce the MPA930 DMG at the SHOT Show. These 9mm guns have all aluminum lowers and use Glock magazines.

These handguns have a 3.5″ threaded barrel and weigh 46 ounces. A Picatinny rail is standard for the addition of optics. The guns ship with adjustable sights.

The guns have a single point sling attachment point plus mounting holes to add a stock. The MPA site shows an SBR version of the gun, but no additional information (pricing, etc.) is available at the time of this writing.

    Glad they are selling a light-weight version of these. They had the MPA30DMG listed at 8lbs on their website which is a no go for me. I cant justify buying a “pistol” that weighs more than a 16″ barreled AR15.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    You know…. I’ll give them this… They are taking the MAC platform farther than anyone would have though possible.

    I still wouldn’t want one, esp as a pistol since a glock outperforms it in everyway. As an SBR I guess it looks useful based on its size.

    • Nicks87

      If I get one I will definately go SBR but it will mostly just be a fun gun. The selling point is that it uses Glock mags, which I have plenty of, and are now being made by MagPul which is just win, win, win.

    • noguncontrol

      instead of the SBR route, they should go for the sig brace route.

        Which is now illegal for what all of us want to use it for.

  • floppyscience

    I have no idea what practical use this thing has, but I know I want one.

    • Dan

      Practical use? What the hell is that? I live in murica!!!!!

      • Dave The Great

        Reminds me of when a respectfully-non-gun friend of mine once asked me what I used all my guns for, how many I needed, etc.

        I just sat there with a blank expression on my face for a while…

      It pisses off gun haters. I’ll take two.

  • 2wheels

    Almost $700 is a lot of money for one of the ugliest guns on the planet…

  • I’m really on the fence as to whether this is cool or ugly.

    Or both.

  • Nergyl

    Interesting. Reminds me of that one obscure Uzi variant that could accept Glock mags–I think they called it the “Para Uzi?”

  • Alexander Black

    That’s a lot of $ for a over sized over weight glock

  • Formynder

    Does it tighten lug bolts as well?

  • run_45

    I think it’s a good competitor for the Kel-Tec Sub 2000

  • Swampy

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this looks sweet to me. Does it fill a need? Not for me but than again, need really is not a determining factor for my gun purchases. If it goes bang and throws a chunk of lead, I want it! Lol.

  • Carl

    Yo Richard! Call me when you get one of these dude! Hope all is well!

  • bfmusashi

    For the Emperor’s finest.

    I have an MPA30SST. I bought it as a “fun gun” because it was on sale ($350 new) and I loved the high capacity mags. I was surprised at its accuracy, once you got used to the odd ergonomics. It’s also MUCH easier to service than a Glock. Pull two pins and it comes right apart.
    The threaded barrel is great for anything you want to throw at it. Plus you have the option of a single point sling, shoulder stock, or even getting a 16 inch barrel or a complete new upper for it if you want to make a pistol-caliber rifle (and I do) for a reasonable amount. The ability to put a quad-rail on it is also nice.
    I’m a pretty big guy, so the weight isn’t much of an issue for me. It does however help with recoil and follow up shots, especially when you have the muzzle brake on.

    That is the sweetest model number…ever. I can hear it now: “Dude, I just bought a MXP903BA000.71-3AH(SD).”

    Even w/ the new sig brace fiasco, the sig brace could effectively used on this gun as originally designed. Also it has fixed barrel & rigid chassis so ther eare plenty of places to make contact on the gun that won’t induce a stoppage or misfire for improved retention shooting and stability. 46 ounces…

    I just dont’ know if they can be trusted to feed HP ammo like a Glock or most normal pistols.
