    Good Afternoon,

    Any Mac10 experts in the house? I have 6 what I am told were mac10 magazines. No clue why I have been hanging onto them so need cash and time to sell. The problem is looking up prices online they could be $15 mags or they could be $50 mags.

    Can you help me figure out what they are?

    I opened one up and could not see any markings on the metal. They all appear to be packed in the original grease and paper from the factory?

    Help? What do I have? What is it worth?

    Thanks,
    Steven
    p.s. to clarify this is not a for sale add! This is what do I have add and what is it worth?
    p.s.s. Yes the WTS add will follow unless they are not worth shipping and they can hide in my garage for another 5 years :)

    Mac 10's were 9mm and 45 acp. Mac 11's were .380 acp and 9mm.
    Have you tried fitting any ammo into one yet. I have a 9mm full auto Mac 11 and will take a look at my mags to see if they are similar.

    They look like sten mags. Uzi has a different catch on them, and newer m-11 type guns are different (I have had both in the past - trying to remember but I can't recall the cut in front on an uzi mag), but if you compare those to sten mags they looks similar to me. Did the original Mac-11 take sten mags? Do your mags hold 32 rounds? Google-fu pic

    You had to modify the STEN Mags to make them fit the M-11. May even be Linda mags...
