Whadda ya think? Yes, it is ugly, but interesting looking too. Masterpiece Arms makes all of those Mac knock offs, don't they? I wonder if it is reliable?

Lacks the cosmetic appeal of the PS90.

My MAC 11 clone is holding up like a champ! It double feeds when bumpfired sometimes, otherwise it's pretty damn reliable, and accurate.

or just get an ar57 upper. At least it uses p90 mags.

I think a cheap alternative to a PS90 would be PS90 that shoots something besides 5.7 ammo hahaha..

The cost of the 5.7 ammo plus the fact only one manufacture makes it is the real cost factor for the PS90.

Also I always thought the MPA pistols/carbine were interesting range toys but if I were to get one I would get it calibered in 9mm so I could shoot it more.

Jesus, that is ugly. If I spent $800 (or more than $200) on that, I'd never be able to look at myself in the mirror again.

There is more than one manufacturer of 5.7x28 ammo now, but it is still costly.

The pistol grip looks so weird. Even on their pistol Mac type, and on that rifle it looks even more odd.

I'd rather go with an AR57 upper, or just the PS90 all together.

Uff... Pretty nifty, but damn is that ugly. And cheap-looking. If it were $200, I'd get it.

Not to mention it has exactly 0 features that we can use even with a bullet button.

I agree with the 5.7. Interesting round but not very re-loadable (almost every 5.7 kaboom story I have ever seen involved reloads) and stinking expensive. If I am going to pay .50 per round, I would much rather shoot my Garand.

This isn't an alternative to the PS90 at all. The PS90 has a longer barrel, doesn't require an NFA stamp, has 50 round magazines available, and for those of us in CA... this is kinda crap.
