I had a teacher who used one (a 5) for pit orchestra gigs. He said that he liked it, but that no other tenor Meyer he's ever played has played anything like that one, and he's tried for years to find a backup. I think his is a fluke.
They don't seem to be really popular around here, though.
I have a gold plated Meyer #8 Metal Tenor mpc. It's ok. Plays much better than those Metal Jazz models I've tried. But nothing special. Just an average small chamber medium baffle piece. Plays in tune with my Mk6. Lowest register not too difficult so the facing seems to be ok.
I don't remember why I happened to get it. I have these gadgets in a drawer and there they stay...
