Do you guys remember when you could get one for around 1000$ from canada.....in the 80's? Now look at them....
Sources dry up and go away. Just be glad you found one while you could.....no worries. They will be back....
That my friend is exactly why I never bought a Makarov. They're fine guns for thier price, but good lucking finding ammo at a figurative "gas station". I don't see the little .38 loaded with +Ps as being any worse ballistically, and it's not going away.
I bought a .380 Mak in January at a gun show in Birmingham, AL for $200. It is the Bulgarian version and came with the original grips and a set of red star grips which are thinner. George Hill's review of the Russian IJ-17A in CCM got me to looking for one. This one is a shooter.
I took a NRA Basic Pistol Course with the wife last Saturday and every shot I fired was on target. This may not seem like much to some, but I discovered Sat. that my dominant eye is the left and I am right handed. Now I know why my hand eye coordination has always been so bad. Anyway at 7 yds. a 4 in. group. At 25 yds. all inside the rings on a pistol target. The only thing I have done to this Mak is to paint the sights.
