    Transferable MA-49

    Was offered a transferable MAT-49 for 34,000 with a dealer premium,* which seems about right.* Spare parts seem rather plentiful,* but there seems to be a utter lack of available magazines.* Thoughts?

    Anything in particular you like about it?
    More than the folding novelty?

    9mm Greasegun vibe. Just smooth like a mp40, but the stock is better and drilling out the rear sight is way better. It’s never gonna be a CFW A bolt in a m11/9 but it’s that smooth. For an all metal iron sighted 9mm subgun you can’t ask for much more

    They seem to be relatively uncommon, kinda of torn between a MAT-49 or a PPS-43

    Pps43 is not smooth and the underfolding stock sucks balls. Also call me a drama queen but I hate tangent sights

    All fair, I have a Medea Corp Grease Gun shell being finished up at some point, wanted a 9mm SMG too. There is a relatively inexpensive Madson M-50 available, a Swedish K and this MAS-49 all up for sale currently.

    Well mat49s are the rarest to come up for sale, at least I think so. I vote for that all else being considered equal

    Swedish Ks are hard to beat. If you can get one right forget the others
