Status update on the MAX-10/15 and MAX-11A1/15 upper receivers. 01/11/2022The BATFE has determined that the MAX-11A1/15 and the MAX-10/15 Upper Receivers are not a firearm! This letter is what we have been waiting on in order to start production on the new 5.56 Upper Receivers for the M-11A1 and M-10 SMG's. Anyone who is already on the waiting list will get an e-mail about one month prior to when their Upper will be ready. This e-mail will require a response since we will be asking if you are still interested in the Upper Receiver. We do this for lists that are old to make sure we're getting Uppers to people as fast as possible once they're ready to ship. Since we had to wait a while to get a response from BATFE, the lists for these Uppers are now over 2 years old. A waiting list is still being formed for both Uppers.
New Product Release: MAX-31C and MAX-10/31k 5/05/2021The highly requested shortened Suomi Drum Uppers for the M-11/9 and M-10 will be finished soon!
Status update on the MAX-10/15 and MAX-11A1/15 upper receivers. 03/11/21Regarding the status of the MAX-10/15 and MAX-11A1/15 upper receivers we submitted to BATFE Firearms and Technology Division, we still have not received a determination letter from BATFE. We will not go into production until we hear back. As soon as we have an update we will post it here and on our social media accounts.
MAX-11.com has been revised to a more current format! 08/12/20We experienced an attack on our website in June that caused alot of dysfunction with our website. While we had attempted to restore functionality, it seemed best to just redo the whole website. This new format should be easier for you to navigate and use. We hope you like it!
Status update on the MAX-10/15 and MAX-11A1/15 upper receivers. 08/12/20Regarding the status of the MAX-10/15 and MAX-11A1/15 upper receivers we submitted to BATFE Firearms and Technology Division, we called to leave a message the other day and their system will not let you leave a message anymore. The old system used to be that you would call, leave a message and an agent would call you back within 24 hours. We called and left a message about 6 months ago and they never returned it. Instead of reaching voicemail, you hear a recording of their mail in address. We will write a letter, but it's probably pointless. There might be agents working from home due to Covid, but I doubt it. Our best guess is that we will hear something early next year.
MAX-11/15 IRM versus AR Buffer system 06/16/2018:There have been alot of questions about which recoil system a customer might want for their MAX-11/15 so here is some more information.
BATFE Tech Branch has approved both versions of the MAX-11/15 06/13/2018:We have received our determination letter from the BATFE and they have approved both versions of the MAX-11/15! We will start production right away and hope to have the first 20 ready in a few months. After the first run we will increase the quantity of each run with the goal of doing a minimum of 50 per 4-6 weeks. Since both versions were approved you will be contacted a month or two prior to the run that you are going to be in and we will ask you which version you would like (AR Recoil System or Internal Recoil Mechanism). There will be no price difference between the two options. The price for the MAX-11/15 will be finalized when the first production run is completed but it is estimated to be $2,995. We estimate to reach the end of the current list in approximately 18 months. We will continue to post updates of the status on our website.
MAX-11/15 Project Status Update 05/23/18We submitted the original prototype that was provided by MAK91 to BATFE Tech Branch and received an "Approval Letter". Yes, in theory, we could produce and sell that version right now. The letter specifically stated that if there were any changes in dimensions and/or materials, we would have to re-submit the design. We redesigned the upper and also came up with a "non-drilled" version. These versions have been at BATFE Tech branch for a while now and based on the latest conversation with the agent who it was assigned to, the determination should be finished in a couple of weeks. This is the same agent who made the original determination. He is familiar with the design and all of our past products and letters. The conversation was a positive one.
Spots on Waiting Lists are No Longer TransferableEffective as of 04/11/2018: In order to maintain integrity of our waiting list and ordering process, product must be paid for and shipped to the customer on the list. Your spot on the list is not transferable under any circumstances. If you had contacted us in the past to transfer your spot to someone else and we updated our list to change it to their name, we will honor the change.
