I’m not a fan of the MAC-10 style handgun. It’s not my speed, and with the improvements that have come in the nearly 50 years since it was first developed, the design has become decidedly outdated. Nevertheless, the guys at MasterPiece Arms say the guns keep flying off the shelves, and there’s something to be said for the modular nature of their product. Building off of that modularity, MPA is releasing a new line of firearms specifically designed to easily swap from one caliber to another. And it looks like they may have finally introduced an improved grip style as well. Presser after the jump . . .
Comer, Ga. – (November 2014) – MasterPiece Arms (MPA), manufacturers of the MPA MAC Line of semi-auto pistols, carbines, suppressors and MPAR Rifles, proudly announces the MPA30DMG, the first “multi caliber” pistol from the new DMG (Defender, Machined, Grip) Series. This 9mm pistol is based on the 30sst, but includes a fully machined aluminum pistol grip. The DMG series grip is MPA’s most ergonomically designed grip system allowing the ability to change calibers by changing the grip housing, bolt and barrel (depending upon the caliber).
The 30DMG ships as a 9mm, using a GLOCK® style magazine; however, by changing out the grip housing, bolt and barrel, other calibers can be fired using this modular system. Additional calibers in 5.7x28mm, 9mm, .40 S&W and .357 SIG kits will be available. MPA is working on adding the .45 ACP as a possible caliber and plan to have it developed potentially by SHOT Show 2015.
The MPA30DMG also includes additional upgraded features, such as adjustable front and rear sights, L-Bracket with QD plate for single point sling system and a Cerakote Flat Dark Earth coating. It is also available in Black, Gunmetal, Tungsten and Burnt Bronze Cerakote finishes. The pistol is further equipped with a side cocker, scope mount, lower Picatinny rail for flashlight or laser systems, hammer with disconnect (plus original hammer) and comes in an MPA polymer case.
Caliber: Ships in 9mm (additional calibers to become available)
Barrel Length: 5.5″
Weight: 58 oz.
