Let’s face it: these are not the prettiest weapons in the word. I’ve seen Lego guns with more style. But MasterPiece Arms reckons their new “MPA Protector Series line of Personal Protection, Conceal Carry, Sub-compact Pistols” have something going for them (other than Germanic over-capitalization). They claim the pocket pistols are a “super premium product at a moderate price.” To wit: both double-action-only handguns boast fully machined stainless steel upper and lowers, which should help reduce felt recoil and muzzle flip. No castings, no forgings, no injection molded receivers, no woman, no cry. The $345.90 MPA380S weighs 10.9 ounces while the $322.90 MPA32B tips the scales at 11.3 ounces.
