    Mac 10 = .45 cal
    Mac 11= 9mm
    Mac12 (?can't remember for sure what the model # was) = .380

    So its just the difference in calibers?

    I thought maybe it had something to do with physical size?

    So far as I can remember, the M10 is available in 9x19 and .45acp. The M11 was made in 9x19 and .380. The M10 is blockier, having a taller and shorter form factor than the M11. I went with the M11/9 when I bought a subgun. Only regret I have is that I had to sell it :( Put a Lage upper on the 9mm or .45 guns and it puts the guns a step above the Uzi, IMO. In their stock forms they're just a fun way to turn money into noise unless you spend a considerable amount of time practicing. I think mine in stock form was running around 1400rpm. The Lage dropped that down to 900, added rails for optics and vert grips, and improved controllability. Best way to get into full auto if you ask me.

    Yes I would only consider a MAC if it had the Lage Slow fire upper. I have seen some videos on youtube with the Lage stuff on them, rate of fire looks good, you can add attachments and stuff to... Not to mention that 9mm isn't that expensive, and .22lr conversions would be nice to..

    It wouldn't be my dream M16 lower... But might suffice.

    Seems like a decent way to own a FA and not break the bank.

    No, the MAC-10 came in .45 ACP and 9mm

    The MAC-11 came along and was offered in 9mm and .380

    There is no MAC-12

    Are there any videos that show the difference in ROF between the stock configuration and with the Lage slowfire upper installed? I'm not super familiar with MACs, and it'd be interesting to see the difference.

    MAC (Military Armament Corporation) was the first company that made John Ingram's M-10 submachine gun. Which caused the Ingram M-10 to be commonly called a MAC-10.

    The Ingram M-10 was made in 9x19mm and .45ACP.
    The Ingram M-11 was made in .380ACP.

    Several years later, SWD took the M-11 design and modified it to create the M-11/9 in 9x19mm.

    Other firearm manufacturers also produced the M-10 & M-11 in varying configurations in both (open bolt & closed bolt) semi-auto only and (open bolt) select-fire.

    One of those manufacturers made what they called the MAC-12, which was a semi-auto only pistol variant of the M-11 in .380ACP.

    Quiet got it right. If you just want to get past the sticker shock go to subguns.com and look in the NFA section.
