We Take Consignments

Do you have MAC related items you’d like to sell, but you don’t want to take the time to sell them? Let us do it for you. We’ve sold many different parts and accessories for our customers. Sometimes we even buy them or trade for other merchandise ourselves, well because we like to keep as much as we can!

Parts on consignment usually don’t last long, at the time of this post we only have a couple of items on consignment. They are a used Semi-Auto Uzi Top Cover and a used M10/9 barrel.

If this interests you, contact us for details!

The Next Big Thing For The Mac Style Family Of Registered Receiver Machine Guns

Yes, “the next big thing” is a bold statement. Here is a quick overview of what A & S Conversions, LLC (A&S) will be bringing to the NFA market  in the first quarter of 2019 for the M10 registered receiver Machine Gun.  Presenting the Tenko 10-16 adapter.
The adapter will:
-Allow the use of unmodified Ar-15/M16 barreled upper receivers and magazines to be fired full auto using an M10 registered  Machine Gun e.g. .22, 9mm, .45, .223/.556, 7.62×39 and 300 Blackout or virtually any other AR upper receiver by pushing the two AR take-down pins.
-An off the shelf Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) buffer does not require any modification to the M10 lower receiver and can be tuned for different AR caliber applications.
-The basic design already has a determination by the Firearms and Ammunition Technology Division of the NFA Branch, that the adapter is not a firearm nor does it break any other laws.
A & S Conversions is currently waiting for the FATD determination of the refined version so we can release the adapter for retail sales.
-We – Practical Solutions will be the exclusive retailer of the Tenko adapter series made by A&S Conversions . If you are interested in the Tenko adapter for the M10, there is a waiting list developing.  To be added to the list please email us at:
-A provisional patent has been filed with the U.S. Patent Office for the mechanism that this adapter uses.
-Below is a video of the adapter being used with a Powder Springs Mac 10 lower receiver. This receiver does not have reinforcement tabs. No appreciable wear developed in the front pin hole of the receiver or the Tenko adapter after 10,000 rounds of use.
As the release date gets closer, more details will be forthcoming. Please do not contact A&S Conversions for further details at this time.  But we will be happy to talk with you about this project.
Further, A&S Conversions is also working on a prototype for the M11/NINE RR Machine Gun which should be available by the third quarter of 2019 if not before.
We hope you are as excited as we are!
Happy Shooting…

Fat Ghost Upper Receiver – M10 9mm or 45 acp.

Like the original, The Grey Ghost, the Fat Ghost is a modification of the design by Mike McManus.  It is completely made of steel with full length Picatinny Rail on top, an Ace Style grip out front, a flash hider with a stubby 1/2 x 28 tpi threaded barrel for the M10/9 and 5/8 x 24 for the M10/45, “shark fin” non-reciprocating charging handle, and built in gas deflector.  The cost of the “stock” Fat Ghost is $475.00.

Some of the customize-able options are below:

1.  Change the barrel threading to :  M10/45 – .578 x 28 tpi, Standard barrel, Standard barrel but made stubby (no barrel after threads).  M10/9 – Standard barrel, Standard barrel but made stubby (no barrel after threads).
2.  Your own barrel such as a 3-lug. Subtract $30.
4.  3″ side accessory rail. Add $55.
5.  Low profile (round/cylindrical) charging handle instead of the shark fin.  Same price.
6.  Leave off the flash hider.  Subtract $5.
The picture below is of the Fat Ghost Upper Receivers with each of the optional charging handles and showing the standard 9mm barrel or the stubby 9mm barrel (the flash hider has been left off of each).  The charging handle on the top Fat Ghost is the Low Profile Charging Handle, and the Charging Handle on the botttom Fat Ghost is the Shark Fin Charging Handle.



This picture shows the Fat Ghost with the Low Profile Charging Handle and the stubby 45 barrel threaded 5/8 x 24.

This picture is of the same Fat Ghost showing the ejection port side with the gas deflector.
