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.
