    Mak attack

    I have been on a wood grip crazy lately, replacing plastic when ever possible. I just installed my new Mak grips. Grips are Red Wattle wood and made by the renowned maker Dennis Marschalko in Hungary. Size, shape, and thichness is just like the orginal plastic grips but are a major improvement in feel and looks, and you don't have the thick, bulky feel of the rubber Pearce grips, which this Bulgarian Mak was wearing before. I am very pleased with the product and relatively inexpensive price for wood grips of this high quality.

    This Bulgarian Mak which I rescued from a pawn shop for $140 and Duracoated matte black has been feed hundreds of rounds of just about all of the 9x18 ammo avalible today, both ball and HP and has never once failed to go bang. Simple blowback design, ruggid, reliable and easy to field strip and clean, and relatively accurate for a gun of this size and chambered in an exceptable caliber for CCW use. They are a bit heavy for the size of pistol being all steel, and the sights or standard military type (tough to see for older eyes) but I have a good IWB holster for it and I carry it sometimes, and am always confident that if I need it, it will not fail me.

    Very nice upgrade, I too prefer wood over plastic for grips.

    Looks very nice. I wish I could find some of the Brown Bear ammo that was with 115 gr bullets at 1000fps if I remember correctly.

    I don't think it was Silver Bear, but not sure. Anyone have a source for that ammo?

    The Mak is one gun I have that I would bet, if I were a betting man, that it would not fail to feed and fire for the next 2000 rounds with whatever I fed it.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    I might have to get a set of Grips for my CZ-82 those are sharp! I got a holster from Redstorm leather and it works great! I have been thinking of getting a Polish P-64 and/or an FEG PA-63 if anyone has one of these your thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Also Makarov.com is going out of business...

    Very nice! I just had the opportunity to shoot a Makarov/Shigapov PMM last night. Interesting specimen.

    Nice Mak. I've been thinking of picking one up.

    BTW, Dennis Marschalko rocks. I have his Bubinga wood grips on my Bersa Thunder 380CC and they are great!

    The only thing I love more than Maks/CZs/Fegs are Marschal's grips.

    Sweet pistol!

    Thanks for the replies. I will keep looking as convenient.

    artemis28, thanks but that was for the 9x19 instead of the Mak which is 9x18. The regular ammo for the Mak is about like a hot .380, but the Brown Bear for a 115 gr at 1000fps makes it almost like the 9x19. The pressures must be high, but I have not heard of problems.

    Regards,
    Jerry
