I picked up a Makarov 380 IJ 70 today and see where there are .22lr conversion kits made for these. Has anyone used these? How good are they and what is a fair price for them?

Thanks

The barrel is pressed in. It can be removed, but it's not as simple as with the conversions on locked breach/delay blowback guns.

The .22 conversion kit uses a barrel insert that goes right in the 9x18 barrel. No need to remove the barrel so it's an easy thing to use the kit.

I have a kit, and it looks good enough, but I've yet to actually take it out the range.

Mine looks solid and well made, but that's all I can say so far.

Well, I don't have a Mak, have a P64 which is way different, but I'd still be interested in how this conversion might shoot/perform...accuracy. I suppose it's for cheap practice more than anything else 'cause anything I can do with a .22 I can also do with a 9x18, like rabbits and such. These guns are accurate enough for small game hunting in my experience. .22 conversions are neat, can give you two guns in one, but 9x18 import ammo is NOT that expensive. That's a good thing. But, if you shoot the gun a LOT and don't wanna bother with handloading it (brass gets slung quite far in my p64), the savings could add up, I suppose.

I bought the Bulgarian 22 Conversion from makarov.com when they were still in business.

It works fine but is ammo sensitive.

Even though the conversion kit is Bulgarian I had to try it on three Bulgarian Makarovs before I found one it would work on.

As I recall it was right expensive to.
