    Since I put myself in the M10 list, I’ve acquired an M11A1. Now I have a hard choice to make!

    Belt-fed would be what would get me to jump in. But the feeding mechanism is a real engineering challenge to solve, especially while avoiding tech branch's eye of sauron-esque review.

    I am hopeful this means we'll see the Tenko adapter finally get unstuck, too.

    My next LAGE purchase for my M11 will be the Ark of the Covenant, The Holy Gail, The Unicorn, The Bigfoot, The Oak Island Treasure, the beloved M10/M11 belt fed upper. Continuously praying.

    Best is subjective! Strongest frame is obviously the M10. That being said you didn't buy a mac to go to war, you bought it to make ammo go bang in the coolest way possible, so maybe the A1.

    The M10 is unnecessarily wide if the receiver is only going to be used for a trigger pack IMO.

    Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!

    I was minutes away from ordering gift cards for family members for Christmas. I guess they'll be getting smaller cards now

    Merry Christmas Richard and Jackie. IIRC my number is somewhere in the 80's, so I have a bit of time.

    Can you give us an idea of your production rates so we may budget accordingly?

    Cheers and Happy New Year!!!!!

    I sure wish Tom Wright/Vegas SMG were alive to see this. In fact, maybe it was his intercession upon ascending to heaven that got this over the finish line.

    I believe they started with 20 at a time with plans to ramp up to 50 per week. That was adding one new product.

    I'm hoping it is 50 a batch! I'm still a ways down the list. I'm hoping it all goes fast!

    I remember when the MAX-11/15 upper for the M11/9 was being delivered folks reported where they were in the queue and date their upper was delivered. Maybe we'll be doing that again?

    Ecstatic about this news. I bought multiple M10s anticipating the move into higher caliber uppers. Excited to buy this - as with future ones like it. On to a 22lr mac 10 upper, belt fed upper, and/or the Tenko that would accommodate both in the future :-)

    To answer a couple of questions:

    We will be working on the schedule for MAX-11A1/15 and MAX-10/15 production when we get back from New Years shut down. We are closed for the rest of this week fir Christmas and will be open a couple of days next week.

    A limiting factor for production will probably be availability of Barrels and AR Bolt Heads. Barrels currently have a 6 month lead time. They are currently on order.

    Just like the MAX-11/15, the uppers will be available with one barrel length, 10-1/2". It is a standard AR barrel, so changing it out is fairly simple. For logistics, we only offer one barrel. It maximizes our throughput.

    The first batch will be 20 each and then batches of 50 each. Until we work out deliveries for the AR parts, we cannot estimate how long it will take for each batch.

    If we are lucky enough to receive parts on time and produce at the rate we did for the MAX-11/15, the lists should be knocked out in about 6 to 8 months.

    Thank you very much, Richard, for your comprehensive reply. Other than the wildcard factor of being at the mercy of vendors, it's clear where we're headed.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, Jackie and the entire Lage clan and team! ��

    Would an approval in caliber 5.56 allow production in other calibers without further approval? While a 5.56 would be the best choice a .308 might be interesting on the M-10. 7.62x39 was interesting until Biden did his anti-Russian ammo thing recently.
