    Thumbs up LGS Makarov Score

    I am VERY happy.

    I stopped by a LGS/Indoor Range to a quick scan of the used cases. They had a 1988 Bulgarian (Circle 10) Makarov (VG+, actual military and/or police issue) with five milspec mags, three grips (red service, BATF "target" special, Pearce rubber), 48 rounds of Fiocchi FMJ, and nice hard case for...

    $200

    Needless to say, I hurt my arm taking out my wallet! I already have a 1997 production commercial Arsenal that I bought NIB in 1999, and this veteran will be a nice complementary carry piece. The value of all the accessories and ammo made the cost of the gun only about $100.

    9mm Mak? nice round. I've got a CZ-82, and it's about the most fun-to-shoot pistol I have.

    Yes- The Makarov is in original 9x18mm. Ammo usually very reasonable, excluding "shortages". A great example of a gun from "the other side".

    Wow, Great deal! Even back when they were everywhere and sold cheap you still paid $190 for the gun and only got one extra mag and a leather military flap holster. You got one heck of a bargain. Pictures are needed.

    I have a couple Bulgarian Makarovs and really like them. I carry one from time to time.

    Nice score, around here they cost quite a bit more.

    Me too. Also have an unfired Russian Mak that's a safe queen.

    Really great pistols with excellent reliability. The solid fixed barrel design really make it accurate after the first DA shot since it switches to SA. Not the greatest training handgun though as I found out a couple of months ago. The snap it has due to the blow back design started hurting my gun hand after 300 rounds or so and the mag release is a bit unwieldy but as a carry gun or general protection; it's a solid winner in my book.

    I have enjoyed 9X18 ammo through a FEG PA63 and CZ 82 and found both great shooter.

    A Bulgy Mak, 5 spare mags, various grips, VG condition, for $200. Not bad.

    Now, here's to hoping the gun was run by a marksman and regularly massaged/smoothed/tuned by the armorer, and that you find it flawlessly reliable.

    You could have tried to talk them down a bit, just for fun. "I don't know, ammo's kind of hard to find - how about $160?"

    Just kidding, that's an excellent deal.

    Pics added to first post.

    Looks like there were five EXTRA mags, making six total.
