    The ''Mak'' markings

    We did IIRC have a thread not too long ago where we discussed the Makarov.

    I probably even posted a pic of mine. I did tho mention that I paid a bit extra for it cos, it is a Russian - tho a Bulgy import - only reason it got in!

    On right side of frame are stampings re the Bulgy aspect but on left side - interesting! Here we have the Russian marking - the triangle in a circle.

    Mine was in a box (Russian type cardboard!) - but did have not only the seemingly std brown/orange grips but a pair of black ones too - which I fitted. They feel good.

    Blowback gun? Yes - basic? yes - but almost tough as nails. If they are still to be seen at gun shows for $149 - grab one - it is a fun gun for 9x18 and worth having IMO. Mag release is heel type but that ain't bad as it sounds. If I needed to - I'd carry this fella.

    http://www.makarov.com/ is a great place for info - also good info on CZ-52.

    See if I could ever find these mythical $150 Maks I'd get one. They're $190 here locally and at that price, I mean heck that's cheap still, but it ain't $150.
