Sionics M14 Suppressor

The "by the numbers" quality kit work by Military Accessories Company (MAC) is, in this case, the guts of their suppressor for the Ruger 10/22.

By late in 1982, Catawba had expanded its offerings into other suppressor paraphernalia, plus exotic weaponry parts and machine services. They still are not a firearms dealership and still hold no licenses, much to the relief of their customers.

One businessman, however, Don Floyd of Woodstock. Georgia, offered complete Sionics-type suppressor kits for sale in his 1981 advertising. Prices ranged from $140 for MAC Ml0 and 11 units to $175 for the M14, AR15. and HK93 suppressors.

Another of the major manufacturers who "WerBellized" a trade name is Lee Thomas of Military Accessories Company (MAC) of Cleveland, South Carolina, who owns a full-line production business dealing in suppressor components, accessories, and publications. MACs work is ail top of the line with quality machining and finish. In 1980, operating from Atlanta, their ads opened with parts for the Ingram weapons and suppressors, plus suppressor components for the Charter Arms survival rifles. One of their suppressor ads noted, "If you ever need to rely on your AR7 in a future survival situation, there may be times when you will not want others to know your firing location."

In addition, the ad, which offered the AR7 muzzle adapter and internal suppressor parts for

$175. carefully noted that prior ATF approval was needed to own and assemble a complete unit. MAC also said, "Since we hold no government firearms license, we are not subject to any form of record check, as are other dealers, and all our sales are kept confidential."

The following spring, before MAC moved to South Carolina, they offered Shotgun News readers grand values during a silencer "clearance-moving" sale. They also offered a no-frills, easy-to-under-stand warranty on their products of "full refund or replacement, no questions asked." Thomas added, "We have total faith in our products, so we can easily live with that warranty." They also offered original Sionics sniper rifle suppressor parts in both .223 and .308 for $200 per set, 4ia real vaue for user or collector."

By that summer, MACs quality product line included adapters and kits for the standard Colt, High Standard, and Ruger pistols that went well with suppressors. Prices were competitive. Their suppressor internal parts were all made of prcci-sion-machined barrel steel, while the barrel bushings were made of brass to protect the gun's bluing. In tests the MAC units performed well, showing them top quality suppressors.
