    Last I checked it was only produced in France, and I'm not even sure if it is even being produced there anymore as that was several years ago.

    I am not aware of any US importers either.

    The MAB PA-15 hasn't been manufactured for many years. The gun isn't all that common and spare parts are scarce as are original mags.

    I had one for a while but sold it because I didn't want to break and then not be able to fix it because of a lack of available parts. It was a decent shooter but heavy as a brick so it's only real function was as a range toy and for the money there are better options to fill that role IMO.

    It's been many years since I last saw MAB PA-15's being imported (I think the distributor back then was Howco). I had one about 30 years ago and was impressed by its built-like-a-tank construction, ability to reliably cycle with any type of ammo (rotating barrel design), and by its inherent accuracy.

    It was also one of the heaviest pistols I have ever owned (I believe even the thick base plate on the mag was a piece of machined steel), and best sutied for range work as I really didn't want to lug all that weight around. I eventually sold it because I couldn't find any spare parts or magazines for it.
