    Does something like this exist?

    I would like a Makarov style, in 9X19, single action.

    Does it exist? Or something similar?

    There are a lot of single stack 9mm, but outside of the 1911 platform, I don't know of any single actions.

    The Makarov pistols are simple blow back, supposedly the heaviest round that can be dealt with with a light slide. If you are going with a locked up breach , you might as well go with a 9x19. Though perhaps I have misunderstood your question, if you are asking about a just a single action 9mm, then I am sure that one is available, just not sure why the bother.
    A hand gun is like a fire extinguisher , I wish to use neither, but have both on hand in case of need ; both are personal protection devices that serve the same purpose . ie safety of you and your family.

    Try the Kahr CW9. It's a 9mm, has a smooth trigger and has a reasonable price. The Mak is a good choice for CC but a bit heavy for my taste.

    I don't want the Mak, per se, I'm looking for something with similar ergonomics. Strictly in single action, so Kahrs and the like are excluded.

    Or just any DAO with a good say, 4 lb. trigger job.

    I think a Hi-Power is about as close as your going to get.

    Yeah, BHP is a good suggestion but a little large. If you can find a knowledgeable Sig armorer and smith in your area, you can pick up a P6 and have it converted to a single action. But you would be going through a lot of hassle and expense with little reward.

    Look at a P7.

    Single action. Fixed barrel, blowback design (given, it's a gas-retarded blowback...).

    Even very similar in size.

    CZ 75 comes in a SAO model. If you looking for something smaller there is the CZ RAMI, it is a DA/SA and can be carried cocked and locked.

    ditto!

    find yourself a mid 70's Star BM, formerly used by the state police in Spain. They are rock solid handguns, with mostly holster wear, and very, very little sign of internal wear from shooting. Still lots of spare parts available, if you know how to search. Several years ago they could be had for around $150, but last time I looked they were nearing $300 for good clean specimens. Wish I hadn't traded mine. Like always seems to happen, the gun I traded the perfectly good BM for is also no longer around.

    What's wrong with a Makarov in 9 x 18. There can't be that much performance difference in the two calibers and the Mak is such an icon but I guess it's DA/SA and that's the problem. Maybe a CZ75 compact but I think it's DA/SA as well.

    There are the Kimber Aegis and Springfield EMP. Both are kind of pricey, though.
