MACs are not accurate, nor the Cobray look alikes, they are room brooms. Only the closing of the National Registry makes them desireable to anyone. I have seen upgrade packages to make them look/handle better, but the basic MAC-10 was a spray and pray firearm.
The closest you can get to a semi-auto subgun is the one that was made from a subgun - the HK vP70z. It meets all your criteria exactly, if you can find one, been out of print for a while.

1. Accurate to 75 yds, give or take.

3. No more than $400-450.
4. Chambered for 9mm (preferably).
5. Fairly reliable and durable.

Thanks.
You've got me real curious. Why do want it? Is this simply to have something that looks bad? Or is there something else you have in mind?

If you want something that looks bad, is more fun that a barrel of monkeys, and you can be satisfied with 10 times the ammunition at the same price; then check out this...

I suppose my criteria weren't well thought out, and I apologize. I like the machine pistol look, although I have been researching around and found the Ruger P95 (not a submachine style, I know). Kinda hijacking my own thread, but what about the P95? 15+1 I believe.

Within your price perameters, the P95 is one of the best options. For a hi-cap 9mm under $400 you're looking at either a S&W Sigma or a Ruger P-series as probably the best values. Bersa is another solid option. If you're able to extend the budget to $500-600, the options really open up to most of the poly market as well as some really nice CZs.

One of my shooting buddies has a lil Ruger P95 with the decocker. I don't think i've seen it jam up yet. It was very inexpensive, especially his; he did some electrical work for it. He got a 30 round magazine for it, for plinking fun. I don't like the feel of the grip though, needs some tape or foam. I don't know about the long-range (for a pistol) accuracy you are talking about though; a carbine might be better for that. In a carbine, you could try out a Hipoint 995 without spending much.

good suggestions dude! the hipoint is a very cheap, very accurate 9mm carbine. definitely wouldnt buy one, but i here decent things and they are DIRT cheap. i would suggest the beretta storm cx4. it comes in 3 calibers i believe, 9mm, .40cal, and .45

very accurate, pretty futuristic looking and again, fairly cheap with a good range and very light weight.

Seems to me you are looking for a S&W Sigma with 15rd mags, easily you could do 100+ yards.

You can have it all for under $400.

I have a Sigma in .40 and the Ruger P95. As much as I like my Sigma, the P95 is a much more acurate gun because of the trigger on the Sigma. I hand load 140 grain lead semi wad cutters for the P95. That pistol will eat anything a keep tight groups as long as I do my part.
