MicroMags are nice. Couple of things you may need to know. Anything pre 2k is going to be right feed and utilize and elbow. Only the 2k Micros and the MM2K9 Micros had vert feeds, or in the case of the MM2K9 adjustable feeds. Also, the vert ASA adapters for Micros are fairly tough to find, so if you want that option try to find one that has one already. If not, Lukes Customs I think still has a few like the one above.

Another thing on Micros is that the earliest ones had screw on detents which were/are notoriously easy to strip. By the same token, the later ones had milled on detents that were a PITA to replace and most times too weak for forefed hoppers.

Lastly, the Gen1&2's require a frame with "wings" to properly hold the sear pin in place. Again, if you are buying one of the earlier ones, it's best to try and find one with the correct frame as finding winged frames is fairly tough these days.

Hope it helps. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

And fixed barrels (can't change them). They look nice, but it's an old and unusual "feature".

Hmm. Can our freak boring guys do Micromags?

If you like micromags, search this forum for Robertsr threads.

Only the first gen micros have a fixed barrel about 6" in length I believe. I currently own a black right feed/left powerfeed micro, carbon fiber frame and 2x benchmark frame. Good solid gun. Cocker threading is a plus. I've been thinking about selling it actually.

Craigslist deals are great, but as stated before do not match forum prices. I bought a couple of classic mags of CL and sold/traded them on here for more than I paid for them.
