See my post above… we may not see a lot of it here in the states, because most people can just get their hands on a legitimate semi automatic example, criminals included. But down in the favelas of Brazil, it’s a bit of a different story….I'm honestly surprised we haven't seen more of this. It's easier to make a machine gun than a semi-auto.
I like that he went to the work of painting the lower. Wonder if he stood back and said "Ah! now it looks really good"!
Yeah that two toned look is pretty snazzy.I like that he went to the work of painting the lower. Wonder if he stood back and said "Ah! now it looks really good"!
It's so, so easy for sure. We have a lot of folks that are morally obligated to follow the laws.I'm honestly surprised we haven't seen more of this. It's easier to make a machine gun than a semi-auto.
Wow. To me the impressive thing is the gun at the top actually fired.
Mine was pristine from the factory and wouldn't fire for decades until I sent it to Sam.
These pop up on the British black market somewhat frequently, lots of converted blank firing variants apparently. I always thought they were pretty damn cool with the micro Uzi pistol style grips. They had some other stocks as well, side folders, and suppressors. Weird guns for sure. That one you posted looks like it has a standard parkerized scoop section, most that I’ve seen have the semi gloss black paint finish over the entire gun like an action arms Uzi.A couple of these have (supposedly) been seized by police as well:
"This relatively unknown variant of the famous MAC-10 submachine gun was developed in the 1980s by Chris Perkins, who used legally-imported MAC-10s from the United States which he then rechambered in 9x19mm and modified to feed from Uzi magwells. The gun was marketed for military (full-auto) and civilian (semi-auto) sale by Perkins' company, Section Five Firearms Ltd. Blank-firing models were also provided for film and TV work.
After British gun laws were tightened in the late 1980s, Perkins was offered an ultimatum by the police: he was permitted a license to export guns for international sale, but was disallowed from selling guns in the UK. He accepted this offer and closed Section Five Firearms Ltd., but the MAC-10 continued to be sold by other dealers. Two amateur gunsmiths, David Mitchell and Grant Wilkinson, bought a significant amount of these guns and illegally converted them into fully-automatic weapons, which were sold to criminals. They were both arrested and jailed, but much of the damage had already been done, and tens of Section Five MAC-10s have been seized by the British police over the last three decades."
I wonder about the "barrel", looks like someone drilled out a large bolt from the visible threading.I'm more impressed with the home made magazine. I wonder if it feeds reliably.
