The MAC (Military Armament Corporation) Stinger Pen Gun is truly a unique addition to any collection.
This weapon has a smooth barrel, which although not accurate at long distance, can pack a devastating hit when fired from close range, with the bullet tumbling upon impact.
The C.I.A. Stinger (sold commercially by Military Armaments Corporation as the “Single-Shot Survival Weapon” is perhaps the single most popular weapon the C.I.A.’s Technical Services Division has ever offered.
It has seen successful deployment in toothpaste tubes, pens, cigars, etc. It may be swallowed or stowed as a suppository to avoid detection.
The holster included is of a very concealable design, which will allow for quick release for rapid deployment of this pen gun.
This is a NFA Item per ATF Regulation, and is classified as an “Any Other Weapon AOW”. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on one, we are the best Houston Class 3 Dealer in town!
Modified C.I.A. “Stinger” re-loadable .22 magnum pen-gun is cocked via camera’s film advance lever. The magnum round is used to offset the diminished velocity as the bullet penetrates the lens elements. Other models incorporate baffles within a telephoto lens which then works quite effectively as a silencer (supressor).
The stinger pen gun is chambered in .22 mag. Single shot capacity, but extremely concealable size and shape make it a force to be reckoned with, when no other options are available.
Of the three, this particular MAC Stinger Pen Gun has been carried, and has finish wear. One can only hope it was a pocket carry, as its design was attended to allow men 2 options, and women a third if necessary.
The design of this Military Armament Corporation MAC Pen Gun could also allow it to be hidden in a cigar as well.
We were lucky enough to photograph not one, or two, but three of these fine examples.
The original hard case was made of an inexpensive thin plastic, and cracked easily.
Even more rare than the CIA Stinger Pen Gun itself, is to find an unfired example, with holster and original case.
