 New MAC ... Only took a year

I think I won the auction slightly over 1 year ago on my MAC...just picked it up yesterday.
I picked it up from the original owner and the ad listed that it was NIB. It didn't really matter to me if it was fired or not because i got it fairly inexpensively at the bottom of the price dip last year. Well, it certainly appears to be new so is there anything that I need to do to get this running with the exception of a new buffer, field strip, clean, and lube?
I'm on the list for the goodies from Richard Lage so that's covered.

Recoil springs and the ejector are a couple other things you might need to replace.

I don't know about the others, but for the M10/45 there is a new bolt/ejector style, so I replaced the whole bolt group. It was around $150, so I figured I might as well.

SWD Mac 11/9 picked it up for $2400 on gunbroker. Seller paid first tax...took a long time, and it's an 86 gun but I'm happy with the purchase for sure. I wasn't sure what to expect with it being one of the ones made in 86, but the welds all look good and the finish is better than I expected.

There were a lot of good deals last year. I'll likely be wishing that I had a spare 100k at the time for years to come.

wouldnt hurt to get a new sear from lage. have heard reports that some werent "hardened" properly or whatever on the later guns and will eventually cause runaways as they wear down.
I bought one just to have, just because.
if you can pick up a full parts kit on the cheap somewhere, doesnt hurt to have. IMHO anyways

go ahead and get on lage's list for a 22 kit. you'll want it eventually. I havent had mine for too long, but have already shot more 22 out of it because hanging steel plates dont give a shit if you hit them with $17/525 bulk 22 or $10/50 cheap 9mm, they ring (almost) the same.

Good deal on the M11/9. I think the whole '86 horror stories are slightly over dramatized. I have an '86 and it ran perfectly out of the box w/ no issues at all. I'd hold off on replacing parts as they very well may have been heat treated correctly.

Get a Lage 22 conversion for sure, I just got mine all setup the way I want it a few weeks ago and it's sweet. I'll have to post a few pics to show it off.

I had every issue in the book with my 86, but the serial number on mine was very high. What range is yours?

The recession/depression hasn't started yet...it's not too late to hoard some cash for a rainy day purchase.
