    I have a mpa mac10 I got the gun in 2010 and never shot it. It is long heavy and feels like a cheap ar knock off, I have been trying to sell it with the intentions to buy a mini Draco to sbr but lately I’m thinking of just swapping stocks for a folder cutting the barrel to 5 in and threading the barrel To have a cool range toy I can shoot suppressed, I already have a Tirant 45 I run on a 1911.

    Not in my opinion. I've made a mini-Draco SBR and it rocks, way better than it was as a pistol. The mac10 to me is only worthwhile as a full auto bullet hose"

    But its your gun and your money, I'd sell it and SBR a Draco or one of the new 9mm AK pistols if I didn't want a 9mm AR SBR which would be my first choice.

    Between a Draco SBR and a Mac10 SBR, I would probably lean towards the Draco. On the other hand, I have been tossing around the idea of doing a Mac10 SBR. I think it would be cool to have a small and concealable SBR that could still make hits out to 100-150 yards. Throw a micro suppressor on the end and it'll be a nice little package.

    I've asked around, but all the MAC owners I know have all gone to Lage uppers.

    Closed bolt MAC, yuck! Go Draco, or even better Yugo. If you want to shoot suppressed get the shortest 7.5 or lower AR pistol in 9 or .45 you can find.

    Well I already own the Mac it has a ar stock and 16in barrel I also have a tirant 45 I was thinking throwing a folding stock and 6in barrel it may be fun to shoot suppresses. I would trade it in a second for a Draco but no takers on selling the Mac. I also own 4 ar pistols but with the brace I’ll hold off on those. My other choice is a 870 with a 12in barrel but after owning a shockwave 870 I’m up in the air on that.

    I'm a M-11 owner ...
    10_E9_E618-6_DC2-4_C10-9848-_B5_CB610_B323_C.jpg

    I had the itch to go for a 70's drug dealer gun ... just for the heck of it and found one that came with the gen1 lage and original uppers ... but me being me, I built a 2nd lower and I really liked it especially when I found the new trigger that didn't slap your finger!

    That got me looking at the transferable ones and they are a blast to shoot too.

    Now, all that said ... I've also got an AR9mm, MP5 clone, Styer SPP, and CZ EVO (all SBR'd) ... and they've all been my favorite at one time or another BUT if I had to start over and was looking for a 9mm to SBR it would be the Grand Power StriBorg I'd never heard of them until recently but there are several you-tubes on it, the spec's are impressive and worth a look ... I've kinda decided I'm too old to buy any more SBR's but I've got the itch and I'll probably put a brace on one in the near future (but I want a CZ Shadow2 first)
