Was at my local gun shop looking for a used S&W snubbie (want a Model 36). No used snubbies, but I spied a Makarov in the display case.
The gun was pristine and in either unissued, or re-arsenaled condition. In any case, it's in excellent condition. I'm fairly new to Makarovs and only got my first one a couple months ago. That gun has tons of holster wear, but shoots like a champ. Well, I just couldn't pass up the one in the display case.
I'll post pics after I clean it up because it has a lot of cosmoline on it.
I love classic designs, steel guns, and reliability. Maybe that explains why my last four gun purchases have consisted of two S&W Model 10s, and two Bulgarian Makarovs.
Good job, now its time to start your search for an E. German Makarov (Ernst Thaelman Factory) they are the Benz of the Makarov family.
When I leave the home port:
S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP
Must be a virus that LGS turns loose, I have that same problem with guns wanting to follow me home. And could not let that one stay outside after following you all the way home, good choice.

I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!
Range report on the Mak:
Ran about 75 rounds through it, and it ran like a Swiss Watch. I had expected a few malfunctions because everything on this (never-fired) gun was TIGHT, and I figured that it would need a good break in. Nope. Absolutely zero malfunctions.
Here's a target that was at 7 yards with 9 rounds (full 8+1 capacity) shot at it.
It could be worse!
I have two CZ model 82 they are really nice guns had the Robar finish on them and they shoot and carry very well.
Congrats! I love my Russkie model. It's one of 2 semi auto's that I plan on keeping.
