2017 Annual Convention

Location: Tulsa, OK

Date: 3/31 to 4/2

Hello my fellow MCA members and friends.  Once again we near our annual convention on March 31st to April 2nd.  We will be staying at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel at Warren Place in Tulsa, OK.  We will have four main events over the period. 

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHICH OF THE EVENTS YOU WILL BE PARTICIPATING IN, THE NUMBER IN YOUR GROUP, YOUR CELL PHONE NUMBER AND EMAIL ADDRESS.  My contact information is: Email – jrl3600@;  text- 405-496-6476; address- 9624 Ritter Rd., Oklahoma City, OK  73162.   We need to have a good idea to make sure we have room and don’t leave someone out.

Rifle Match – I do not know the course of fire yet but bring your MS and other Steyr rifles to shoot.  On Friday morning we will gather in the Doubletree lobby and carpool to the Red Castle range (courtesy of Tiny Tomsen) at 9:00.  After the event we will stop for lunch on the way back.

President’s Reception - Once again Tiny has graciously invited us to his Annex in Jenks for this event.  It is less than an easy 10 mile drive from the hotel.  The event will start at 6:30 pm Friday evening.  I will send you a map when you respond.  We will have hors d’oeuvres and drinks, an opportunity to socialize and time to view Tiny’s collection.

Gun Show – Saturday and Sunday.  Our tables will be on the west wall of the lower level (LW 27-29) at one of the best shows in the country.  You may bring a few items to display or sell and rest your feet between excursions around the building.  We also ask that you help “man” the booth some to explain our purpose and recruit new members to the MCA.  It is a great opportunity to learn and meet interesting people.

Annual Banquet – It will be held in the Warren Duck Club inside the Doubletree Hotel.  We will gather for socializing and drinks at 6:00 Saturday evening and then enjoy a wonderful dinner.  Following the dinner will be an auction of donated items and a brief meeting.   Cost of the dinner will be about $60.00 per person.

Make your hotel reservation at the Doubletree at Warren Place ASAP.  918-495-1000 and the Reservation Coordinator is Karen, ask for the  Wannemacher Rate.

Welcome to the Mannlicher Collectors Association

Ferdinand Manlnlicher
The M.C.A. serves those interested in Mannlicher and Mannlicher-styled arms, as well as arms manufactured by the Steyr armory in Austria and used by sportsmen and the military throughout the world.

The namesake of the society, Ferdinand Ritter von Mannlicher was one of history’s most prolific designers of firearms.

Join The Mannlicher Collectors Association

Ever since its founding twenty years ago, the Mannlicher Collectors Association has been the major forum of communication for collectors, sportsmen, and historians in the numerous military and sporting arms manufactured by the Steyr Armory in Austria.

MCA members benefit from exchanging information about Steyr arms and from communicating with those wanting to disperse or add them to their collections. MCA members are also invited to participate in the association's annual banquet meeting, always held in conjunction with a major three-day gun show, as well as in the association's African safaris scheduled every few years.

All MCA members also receive a complementary copy of the association's quarterly newsletter, The Mannlicher Collector. A sample issue can be ordered from the Membership Secretary at the cost of $3.00. ($4.00US in Canada and $5.00US overseas.)
