Someone in Brazil decided that perhaps the last firearm anyone should ever want to copy should indeed be copied. You’d think that anyone who likes their shoulders would at least ditch the original MAC-10 type stock (Yes, the originals used left over surplus of the worst stock in existence…. slapped on a 12 gauge shotgun). The example pictured above was seized on May 20th in the Federal District of Planaltina.
The two homemade machine pistols above were seized by Queensland Police on May 23rd. Looking closely they appear to have been made using the widely circulated Box Tube MAC-11 plans.
“Detectives from the Gold Coast CIB have charged a 42-year-old man with drug and weapons offences following a search at a residence at Currumbin Waters last Thursday May 23.

“At 1:09 a.m. Wednesday, in the 100 block of Central Avenue, Waterbury officers arrested 36-year-old Jeremy Stevens, charging him will carrying a pistol without a permit. They say Stevens was hiding a white homemade handgun, loaded with ammo, in his waistband. They say he also had heroin in his pocket.” NBC Connecticut
This pistol seized appears to be a variation of the Songbird model with a steel tube inserted to serve as a stronger barrel. The fame was possibly intentionally broken before arrest.
A sledge hammer in the van or in the yard will evoke little suspicion. Flip the handle around, swap the shell from one end to the other and with these example you have a fully functioning 12 gauge shotgun.
