Got the Mech Tech

I got my 10mm Mech Tech CCU last week. It seems to be a very sound unit. I took it to the range and it shot great. took about 4 shots to dial in the eotech.
It took my 180gr golden saber out of 5.2 barrel from 1250fps to 1420fps out of the 16.25fps. It is a blast to shoot. it even feed my my converted Asian Military 45acp mags with no problems. Now the only problem it the amount of ammo it goes threw.

Very nice! Be careful with the para chord as it could intefere with mag seating...

I don't really like to give up the pistol while using the frame for the carbine...

Congrats. Mech Tech CCU's are great. I have the Glock 40 S&W because of ammo availability (issue).
The 10 Ring

Mine now wears flip up AR front and rear sights in addition to the Vortex Strikefire.
I liked how simple it was to dissassemble and clean the unit.

I like the 550 cord wraps you tied on your.

Cool setup. I like the paracord wrapped mags.

Would you mind telling us about the mags and how you got them to work?

These MechTech units are great. I've got one of the old ones in 45 for a 1911 frame; it's one of my favorite guns to shoot. Really easy to rapid fire and stay on target. Of course the first thing I did to mine was get rid of the silly muzzle decoration (they don't even bother to call it a brake anymore). I'm thinking of getting another in 10mm for the G20 frame.

On a side note, I recently picked up a Keltec Sub2000 in .40 for backpack carry, because it folds up, and should give about the same ballistics as a 10mm pistol. It's about the same price as the MechTech (mostly due to demand) but nowhere near as nice to shoot, or as accurate.

1420fps was the average, the high was 1447fps and they were in grouping in a 4" group at 40 yards so I say no

Here is the link for the magazines.

Thanks for the complements I can't wait to get out tomorrow and try to get gofer or a rabbit.

I ment from a terminal balistics standpoint.
I thought the consensus was the "standard" 180gr GS is a fairly wimpy bullet when moved at even a really hot .40 velocity, lets say above 1150FPS

Nice .... can it be used without a rear stock? How's the accuracy?

Yes, they can be used without the stock. That is the "base model" that they sell, the stock is extra, and there are several choices.

I can't speak for the 10mm unit, but my 45 MechTech makes one ragged hole at 25 yards with the right ammo. The barrel did need some break-in time though, as the rifling was pretty sharp and didn't like lead bullets at first.

The length and balance of these make them very fast handling too.

I think I'm talking myself into a 10mm version.

I only got about 100rd threw it but it seems to be pretty accurate.
I found some of the Golden Sabre and they did retain there jackets. I had to dig them out of the dirt so they were pretty mangled. for the money this gun is the best bang for the buck. its a blast.

Interesting .... would make a nice 10mm long-barrel hunting pistol.

Pretty heavy for that though, and not balanced right to use a normal handgun grip style. They are pretty front heavy for a "pistol" configuration, but balance well with a buttstock, when you hold it like a rifle.

If you are limited by hunting restrictions to using 10mm in a pistol but not a rifle, this could work well though. I'd want an extension out the back in place of the stock, for a cheek weld to help line up the sights, like shooting a pistol AR with a buffer tube.

I must agree, it would be an aquward pistol but makes a very nice pictol caliber carbine. The weight may surprise you a bit- it is built SOLID and rugged.

I was considering using it from a tree stand on a deer but my 44 Mag lever gun has more punch and my old woods gun a 35 Rem lever gun has evem more energy.

If I was king, I would have ONE custom made in 44 Auto-Magnum.

I've got a Sub-2000, too. Its folding capability allows it to go inside a computer softcase. About 2-3" groups at 25 yrds for 9mm ammo.

The MechTech is on my horizon. I just wish the 10mm bullet profile is better geared for a longer and accurate flight than a handgun range.

Now that I've shot my Sub2000 more, I can say the MechTech is definitely more accurate. As a rough estimate, I'd say my MechTech has about the same accuracy at 75 yards as my Sub2000 does at 25 yards. There is a noticeable difference in weight too; the MechTech is much heavier and solid feeling.

Also of possible interest - the Sub2000 with it's 16" barrel in .40 S&W produces almost identical ballistics to my 6.6" 10mm G20 longslide. My 160gr cast hollow points, with 40 S&W book loads (9.0gr Power Pistol, book max is 9.2) do 1650 fps in the little Keltec, and 1550 fps with a 155gr JHP and the same load. I'd like to see what could be done with comparable 10mm loads in the MechTech.
