The Military Armament Corporation of today, or MAC, is a Knoxville, TN-based operation currently offering a selection of shotguns, handguns, and two models of MP5 clones, as well as a handful of other related products. This is differentiated from the same-named 1970s manufacturer of MAC-10 and MAC-11 machine pistols, which has been defunct since 1975. Current-day MAC came out with a 1911 model called the JSOC 45 last year, a full-size tribute to 1911s carried by warfighters during operations such as Just Cause, Gothic Serpent, Urgent Fury, and more. Now they’ve announced a second 1911 variant joining their product lineup. Check out the details on the 9mm MAC 1911-9 DS in the press release copied below.

About Military Armament Corporation:
Military Armament Corporation traces its roots to the era of the resurgence of American resolve, when we once stood between the massed divisions of the Soviets and our allies in western Europe, hunted drug cartel kingpins in South America, and being called a communist was the greatest insult imaginable. Many of our products pay homage to the weapons carried by small groups of men tasked with carrying out new missions in units forged from the hard learned lessons of the previous decades. Missions like ‘counter terrorism’, ‘Direct-Action’, and ‘Counter Narcotics’. While we take our inspiration from the days of caterpillar moustaches, Thomas Magnum and Sonny Crockett, our contemporary products represent the cutting edge of technology in design and manufacturing for government and commercial clients. For more information about Military Armament Corporation or to see the entire line of products visit www.milarmamentcorp.com.
Where MAC’s initial 1911 offering holds more with the traditions of the model, eschewing most modernized modifications to John Moses Browning’s classic design, this new variant embraces today’s 1911 trends. The inclusion of features like an optics-ready cut slide and under-barrel Picatinny rail tend to read a bit more 21st century than 20th, so the MAC handgun family is coming to offer options for multiple purposes.
What do you think of this 9mm 1911, readers? At an MSRP of $1099.99, do you like what the 9 DS brings to the table? Do you think it will be good value for money, or not, and why? Do you have any experience with MAC’s prior handgun offering, and how do you like that one? Do you think you’ll purchase this new one? Let us know in the comments! See you at the range.
