MAC-10 by Drake-UK MAC-10 by Drake-UK
Pictured is a MAC-10 replica with silencer by tm.

Kinda dissapointed with this one so i'll probably take a better shot during the daytime with some natural light.

_______________________________________________

The MAC-10 (Military Armament Corporation Model 10, officially the M10) is a highly compact, blowback operated machine pistol developed by Gordon B. Ingram in 1964.

It is a simple, low-cost design with few moving parts, making it easy to manufacture and maintain.

The compactness and high rates of fire for these weapons (1,090 to 1,145 rpm for the M-10 and 1,200 rpm or more for the M-11 / M-11A1) worked against them. Their small size made them difficult to fire accurately in full auto, and this, when combined with their high rate of fire, made control challenging; this was a key factor in their never finding much success with the military. However, they did see limited service in Vietnam with Special Forces.

what save this gun from be too cumbersome is the suppressor which give you enough control over the recoil to make it efficient enough in CQB

Indeed I've read somewhere that they where trialled in Vietnam by advisers but where deemed ineffective and never used in the field.

yes but they saw it potential for Commando, SWAT, and close protection application

I think that was an intended application but I believe it wasn't favored much and never officially adopted due to its impracticality.

I used to want one of these...until I actually picked up a civilian version of one. Those things are heavy as HELL! And that's saying something for me, because a lot of handguns that most other people would say are heavy feel pretty light to me.
