.380

A similar (or the same?) MAC-11 M11A1 modification to accept Glock magazines which I blogged about back in March is up for sale on Gunbroker:

Link to auction – http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=175724611

The minimum bid is $5479, which seems steep to me. I have no idea how much those things are worth, but I think id rather have a few other guns than that one.  It has been re-listed on Gunbroker a lot of times.

And converted from .380 to 9mm:

Was constructed from a .380 small MAC and a CCF Raceframe aftermarket stainless steel glock frame ($320).

The modification definitely improved ergonomics.  The rate of fire (ROF) is apparently comparable to a Glock18.

Another clear advantage of this conversion is that the 33 round 9mm Glock magazines (~$30) are less than 1/2 the price of the OEM 32 round zytel (plastic) Cobray magazines.  This is going by the $75 price on Cobray’s website , although the magazines do appear to be available for cheaper on online auction sites such as gunbroker.

One thing you’re giving up by doing the conversion is the ability to use these awesome aftermarket 58 round magazines available for 9mm regular MAC-11 conversions :P

Yea, she calls a magazine a clip about 5 times… forgivable though in this case because of context.  I’m sure she must have got blasted for it in the comments because she locked them and corrected it in the video captions.   She is definitely pro 2nd Amendment, down to earth, and otherwise fairly knowledgeable about guns, and gun law in her state.

If she started doing more videos on guns (and shooting), I’m sure she could get a huge following.  She seems to be doing pretty well on subscribers just off her makeup videos alone, but adding more gun videos could create a niche that I am not sure yet exists on YouTube.  It might help get some more girls into shooting and guns in general!

Released at SHOT show this year, two new guns in the S&W bodyguard series, a .380 pistol and a .38 revolver.

They are kept lightweight through the use of aluminum and polymer and steel.

Very nice commercial.. really highlights the guns and the lasers well.

There is a flash of the girl’s face at 1:00 where she looks a bit too happy for someone that could have been stabbed.  Maybe she realized that she had the upper hand :P

Some thoughts:

  • The integration of the laser into the frames (although real well done in this case), is not my preference.  I’d rather see it as an option.
  • Red lasers are so last year! … Don’t they know that green is the new red? Better visibility, greater brightness, and better range with the green.
  • Ambidextrous cylinder release on revolver is a great idea
  • I don’t like the external non-ambidextrous thumb safety on the pistol.  I prefer safeties you don’t have to remember to disengage (ie. like the internal safeties on Glock pistols).
