Lovers of the MAC handgun system rejoice! MasterPiece Arms has announced the release of the MPA M11-9SA, a “throwback to more of a traditional MAC design.” The model number stems from the handgun itself. M11 refers to the frame, 9 for the 9mm caliber, and SA for semi-auto only (sorry, NFA lovers).

The handgun maintains the heel magazine release, straight magazine, and top-cocking action. Pricing is particularly good at a MSRP of $393, which will likely be less on the street. Hit up MasterPiece Arms to place a pre-order.

Details from MasterPiece Arms:

Caliber – 9mm
Barrel Length – 5.5″
Magazine – MPA Polymer – 30 Rounds Capacity
Sights – Front – adjustable/Rear – Fixed
Mag Catch – Quick Release Design
Threads – 3/4-10 TPI
9mm Magazine
Thread Protector

    A retro model for the hipster crack dealer who shuns innovation.

    Having used their more modern designs which fix almost all of the flaws of the Mac (optics mount, improved ergonomics, glock magazines, aluminum weight savings) this is a baffling decision.

    Pass, I'm holding out for the 40-inch quad-rail in muddy girl with a blade not-a-stock thing.

    Finally. The MAC series is a great piece of kitsch gun history, down there with Mosin Nagants. Adding crap to it did not cash in on that recognition, in fact the opposite, it perpetuated the original reputation as a step away from Hi-Point or the ring-of-fire guns.

    I'd like to see them make an open-bolt version just for authenticity but we'd probably fuck it up and get caught trying to convert it, ruining a nice thing for everyone.

    If the street price ends up being in the 250 range, I'd get one for range toy use as I don't see it standing out unless something really extreme happens like the NFA gets repealed.
