    SWD MAC11 is a good start. Look for one and buy it. Not much else to say. Im sure you are familiar with the NFA process.

    Look into a lage upper for the mac to slow the cyclic rate.

    Found a Powder Springs Mac 10 45 ACP locally for 3 thousand with six 30 rnd mags and one 50 rnd mag NFA on Florida form 4
    this sound like a good deal?

    A 9mm will be easier to control. Also, with such a short barrel, a fake suppressor (or a real one) will make it easier to keep it pointed down. The price is good.

    Yep, that's an excellent deal!!
    The M10/45 is the best of the Mac series. The M10 is a much stronger frame and barrel than the M11/9. The .45 uses easily found Grease Gun mags and is known to be very reliable. You can buy a 9mm or .22lr conversion kit to shoot cheaper ammo. Either one will need a bit of tweaking. A Lage Max-10 upper will lower the rate of fire, has better sights, and improve control if he wants to shot matches.

    The Powder Springs MACs are the best-made ones available. If the 50rd mag is Cobray-marked, it's worth $75 by itself.

    3k is a decent price.


    Which mags does it accept?Some of them used a warther(forgot how they are spelled) mag and those are high dollar mags.He can have the magwell cut off and a new one added by having it fitted and rewelded to use 45 uzi or 45 greasegun mags,which are still cheaper than the originals.

    As mentioned, the macs made in Powder Springs Georgia are the good ones.He might also look into swapping out the stock.Those wire originals are flimsy and dont stay put.

    Adding a suppressor makes it all the more enjoyable and much easier to control.

    When I bought my MAC 10, I picked up a 9mm conv. Uses Sten gun mags

    never a problem with either. Only a lot of ammo going down range.
