    That would be pretty cool with a suppressed Lage M-11/22 kit or a side feeding Medphys 180 upper.

    A shorted suppressed AM180 turned sideways in a briefcase with a 177 round drum

    Next stage in the M11/9 briefcase... it's definitely a different animal without having the extra length of a suppressor. With a well-fit hole for the barrel stub, there wasn't enough of an angle to be able to remove the gun, so the barrel is fitted into a notch... and the notch has a thin layer of welder blanket material to handle the potential heat resulting from a mag dump. Of course, there will be hold downs that will be part of the upper panel and keep the gun in place when the briefcase is closed, like I made with the M11A1 case.

    Next step will be to fit the trigger and safety actuator.

    Looking very good.

    Is that green felt?

    It's green suede upholstery fabric (in the first briefcase I used microsuede, which was similar, but thinner). It looks better in photos if you run your hand over it to smooth out the nap, which I didn't think to do last night.

    The main base for the M11/9 operational briefcase is complete. Next is to upholster the top panel and add the hold down(s), spent case diverter, and velcro for holding spare mags, followed by range testing!

    That case looks great. I bet you could start a small business making and selling those. It looks loke a pro.

    Top panel completed! Case is finished except for taking it out to the range for a mag-dump test. Dry-fire (snap-caps) works fine.

    Next up... a computer case!

    That way when people ask what platform I'm running, I'll say, "Oh.. just an old M.A.C."

    Glad to, though I expect it will look a lot like shooting the one I made for the M11A1 except that the "trigger" is further forward (and it will be louder)

    Ok, so I was inspired by this post and made my own Operational case for my M11/9. I made mine a little different because I didn't like the fact that the stock was not attached in the case that was shown. Also, the kydex cover seemed a bit overly complex for me, so I built a brass deflector with a cover to prevent the brass from bouncing back into the action. Other than that, I used the same type case and the same type of trigger mechanism. Thanks for starting this post. It really helped me as I built my case. I hope that my information may also help someone one their build.

    Here are several pictures of the finished case.

    Very nice!!! I'm glad I could inspire and help out. The main reason I've shared all the progress pictures was to make it easier for anyone who wanted to make their own. Good job. Do you have a video of it in live-fire to share?

    Your "spent case collection box" is a unique idea.

    No video yet. I'll try to get one posted. The brass deflector box has an open bottom, so the brass falls to the bottom of the case. I though about hanging a bag or something on it to collect brass.
