    Yes it will...I know I preferred the .45 because it had more smack downrange in that role...but I was using an M3 with suppressor.

    Duplex 9mm cartridges

    Two 9mm bullets with a total weight of 155 grs might not be very loud, if they can
    cycle the action

    The first five shots in semi were pretty quiet. Not Mk5 quiet but not bad. The wipes were original and disintegrated after that. Amazing what a difference they make.

    The MAC is FAST! CRAZY FAST! In auto it’s strictly “Spray and Pray.” The trigger is horrible and the butt stock flimsy. It’s about as far away from a Sterling as you can get in quality and shootability. It’s also about as much fun as you can have with your pants on.

    I had a TV once. It sat in the corner gathering dust. So, I dumped it to make room. Never had the desire to get another one. Even when I was recovering in the hospital I didn’t watch it. I know it sounds strange. I just don’t like it.

    Yes they are...I wonder if one could use thinner wire springs and slow it down? I wonder if it would work? I know the M3 I had ran like a monster when I used springs out of a Bren or FN butt...sounded like and Ingram. Had 10 casings in the air at once. Once I used a thinner wire it slowed some...

    So a stronger spring would make it even faster?
