    My Commie Guns

    I was never one to pass up a bargain , especially bargain firearms.
    Here are two , courtesy of the now Defunct Iron Curtain.



    polish P-64 dated 1972 , and Bulgarian Arsenal Makarov 1988 ,
    both chambered in 9x18 Makarov cal.

    Each of these cost under $150 , pretty good for an all steel ,
    centerfire pistol designed for Military and Police use.



    Both are DA/SA action - single stack Mag.
    And as you can see , the P-64 is smaller, and lighter (22oz.)
    (recoil is much stouter too!)



    Years ago , these pistols were somewhat scarce, as was the
    supply of ammo.
    Over the last couple of years however
    many were imported , and low cost ammo is also imported from several countries.



    Typical loads are a 95 gr or 115 gr - loaded to about 1000fps.



    I also have another "prettier" Bulgy which I hope to customize
    somewhat.

    I have fired enough rounds from both of these to be impressed by
    their "Goes Bang every Time" capability , and would have no
    problem if I needed to use either for carry purposes.

    Nice - many good buys to be had with Eastern Block pistolas.

    Here is my Mak with it's supplied spare grips on - and this one tho a Bulgy import has the Russian marking (see inset).

    I love Makarov's. Great size and really good shooters IMO. Nice pictures. I have the Bulgy,German and Russian in the safe at home. Very cool. I'm finding it hard to find 9x18 ammo however.

    I too used to own a Russian made Makarov. I wish I hadn't got rid of it, the only reason I did, was because at the time, I could only get surplus, "dirty" ammo. This ammo seemed to foul the gun up pretty well, now the ammo is much more available, I might have to get another one.
    If you want a battle of the wit's, please come armed.
