    Bulgarian made clone of the Hi Power. Seems to get favorable reviews and $360 looks like a good price condition allowing. Used by the Bulgarian military and police. I'm wondering if this is the same factory that made the Bulgarian Makarovs?

    The Hi Power doesn't fit my hand, otherwise I'd be tempted at that price.

    No. With last name Kolakowski you should order best pistol made at FB w Radomiu. The gun in question is MAG 98/2008. Amazingly it will run even with :barf:MELSKO ammo making it utterly reliable putting it in same class as SIG 226 and Glock 17/19..

    PS. Arcus would be nice if you're a ..... boy. Oops sorry I meat Bulgarian boy. They do make excellent apricot preserves much better then domestic stuff which is loaded with preservatives, corn syrup and/or sugar.

    Arcus

    All steel except the grips, which on mine are Hogue finger groove models (factory, I think). 3 dot fixed sights. The only reason I don't think it will fit a well made holster for a BHP is the front of the trigger guard isn't rounded but hooked for a finger rest. It is supposed to take 15 round BHP mags but I only have the 2 factory mags, the 98 DAC will take the 13 rounders.

    My sincere apology I did not take Brian and NC into consideration obviously you're not Polish. Rugers are fine guns and the company is 'smokin hot' now offering many quality products people actually want.

    Those are very durable, reliable, accurate and parts are made of obtainium. It is hard to go wrong at that price even if you try to move that at later date. Unlike with MAG-98 buyer isn't going to ask you to throw in good supply of kielbasa as part of the deal.

    I don't have the link to back it up with but I read that the quality of heat treating on Arcus went downhill as they've overexpanded in the last decade. Apparently there was some wear on sliding parts on the latter guns (the ones made in the 90s are supposed to be fine). Also forget about silly things like customer support. Add $100 or so and you can get far better guns.

    Mine has a REALLY long SA pull. I can't figure it out. As far as I know no one else has reported this problem.
