Choat Masterpiece Arms has long been known as the "company that fixed the Mac". The Mac, as it started life when made by Gordon Ingram in the 's, was a very reliable and robust submachine gun. It later lost its well deserved reputation for being one of the most trouble free subguns when "other" companies started to produce this compact piece of firepower.
Masterpiece Arms has changed all of this and has brought the Mac firearm back with a vengeance. They call their guns the Defender series and they are the most reliable and well made Mac's ever produced. The guns are all CNC machined and all parts fit and function perfectly. When Ingram introduced the first Mac's he offered it in two calibers, 9mm and.

This tiny buzzgun has a cyclic rate of around rounds per minute depending on the ammo used. Because all of the MAC series of guns fired so fast they were very expensive to feed even at yesterdays ammunition prices.
In the late 's and through the 's there were several attempts to manufacture. These attempts had varying degrees of success. Some worked well and some didn't work, no matter what ammunition you used in them. My friend Bill Fleming of Fleming Firearms built one of the best.

The operators manual lists the magazines as 25 rounds but the authors mags would hold and function the 30 rounds in them.

It is lined with egg crate foam, is lockable and features secure latches.

The Kahr P is a true pocket pistol, weighing about 11 ounces empty, measuring less than five inches long and less than four inches high. The P is a striker fired, double action only, locked breach pistol with polymer frame and stainless steel slide. The result is a double-action trigger pull that is long and heavy enough to prevent an accidental discharge, while still being very smooth and easy to manage.
This pistol is quite easy to handle and manipulate, despite its small size.

Perhaps the best feature of this gun is the sights. The vast majority of pocket guns have minimal fixed sights milled into the top of the slide. The P, however, has true sights fit to the slide.
Night sights are available as an option from the factory. The standard Kahr factory sights provide an excellent sight picture rarely seen on a gun this size. The P excelled at the range. This is the most accurate pocket pistol I have tested.
I believe the accuracy of this gun is attributable to several factors: excellent sights, an excellent trigger, and the Lothar Walther match-grade barrel. At fifteen feet, the Kahr could produce a single ragged hole in the target. Although well beyond the typical range for a pocket pistol, I decided to shoot the P at 25 yards. Even at that distance, I could keep carefully aimed shots inside an 8-inch diameter circle.
Clearly this pistol is more accurate than should reasonably be expected of a pocket pistol. Recoil seemed quite tame for a small pistol, due in large part to the locked breach design. Many pocket. Even after shooting many rounds in a single session, my hands were no worse for wear. After an extended session, the P did not draw any blood like many pocket autos tend to do. The low bore axis helps minimize muzzle flip and keeps the gun on target for quick follow-up shots.
