So I initially found this listing when I was looking for video game lots: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321141794518. Two of the items are supposedly this, which is apparently an SNES rarity. It looks like the game isn't playable without the gun, but it might still be a collector's item. I'm pretty much done bidding, but I figured someone here might be interested.

To my knowledge, MACS was designed by soldiers at a National Guard armory in Minnesota actually. Or at least that's the only place I've ever heard of it being used. And yes, the game requires the specially modified Jager AP to function. No commercial light guns will work with it. Good luck finding those though. I've seen MACS pop up on eBay before, but never the rifles.
