Mods, delete if this is a clone.

Snarky "use the search function" comments are welcome, but only if they make me giggle like a schoolgirl.

I owned an MPA45 for a year... shot it once, got rid of it. It was like prying a brick from the side of my house and making it pull double-duty as something that shot bullets.

Heavy, obtuse, clumsy, cheap, unreliable... all words I'd use to describe a MAC10 clone.

However, if the 5.7 MPA in the picture was halfway reliable, and about half the weight of the .45 version, it would be a fun range toy.

I still have a Cobray Mac-11 variant. It is a POS, but it was a gift and I keep it around.

Hell yeah! I was going to buy two mpa930 mini macs at the end of the year to be completely tacticool :cool: :guns: but this might make my decision harder!

As a shooter who has owned several full auto MAC's including:

MAC 10 - .45
MAC 11 - .380
MAC 11/9

I can tell you that a semi-auto MAC is a PIG! It may look "Tacticool" but that is it! A MAC is a bullet hose in stock configuration.

as a semi auto handgun, it would be useless. as an sbr or a rifle, less useless.

I must say I am surprised by the overwhelmingly negative response to this thread. The bottom line is that another platform has picked up the round we all love. I have not shot an mpa product but I have heard they are fun little guns. Barring any function issues, it is what it is. To me, having two mpa mini 9s represents a childhood "dream" that I can actually attain without spending multiple thousands of dollars on the real deal full auto sub guns.

But back to the gun posted in this thread. If some tacticool kids stumble upon the mpa offering and take any interest in the 5.7x28 round, I think its a good thing. As cliche as it is, the kids are the future of the sport and the political aspect of the industry. I for one thank god for any exposure the FsN gets whether it be through video games, tv or new tacticool toys. All it will do is help insure that the FsN is around for years to come and, to me, that is more important than whether or not this gun utilizes the full potential of the round or fills any specific operational role.

Just my two cents.

We are also happy that another manufacturer has made a decision to invest in the 5.7x28 platform. Hope the firearm is reliable. But even if it's not, at least a manufacturer believes in the round. And maybe this will continue the ripple resulting in more manufacturers investing in this platform.

dont get me wrong, i like that someone else is picking up the round and using fsn mags. i just dont like the platform as a pistol. after owning a gsg-5pk, id never get an enormous "handgun" copy of a subgun. just my opinion

Well said.

On the flip side, I work with kids and know how they work. Many kids I see outside of work, if they are our future, I pray they never get their hands on a firearm.

Another observation; I highly doubt that even if kids and tacticool games and toys don't promote the FsN that it will be somehow banned or stopped from being mfg by FN. Even without much publicity, many people own FsN's. The reason why you don't see them as often as Glocks etc. is because they are sittin in people's safes.

I know this for fact as almost everyone here in Texas that I know has a FsN never shoots it and it sits in their safes. Some have 2 or 3.

Whether we like them or not ( I actually tend not to) they are our future :p ! But I completely agree that the prospect of some of the kids I know having a bb gun let alone a FsN is a scary thought. Damn kids ain't taught the way I was. Good to know about the popularity of the FsN in Texas though!

Why would this be? Why would so many people own them but not shoot them? Particularly since the price of ammo has come down?

maybe because 9mm ammo is half the price?

If someone has two or three FsN in their safe, they aren't worried about the price difference between 5.7 and 9mm ammo.
