    Sure, why not. I had forgotten what a nice shooting pistol they are until I took mine out the other day and put a few Wolf turds through it. Sad to say, but it shoots straighter than my Glock.

    I like my Maks a lot. The EG and Bulgarian still get carried on occasion.


    East German, Bulgarian and Russian military Makarovs.

    Here's my E. German. Nothing special, but this one has a very nice trigger and now sports Pearce grips instead of the plastic ones shown.

    I have a PA-63! Can I join! :)

    Yes, I know it isn't really a PM, but it still shoots 9x18! :)

    I happen to like the East German plastic grips the most of all I have tried. They look good, and don't have the (external) lanyard loop.

    Maks, the 'Lays Potato Chip' of the handgun world ... nobody can have just one ... :)

    My two East German Makarovs ('62 & '64)... both purchased from THR members ... The second one had a trigger job done by Sylvan-Forge and is the smoothest Mak I've ever shot ... Best price I've found on 9x18 ammo is Wideners .... $167 per 1000 :)

    I say we keep this Makarov club to the actual Makarov PM pistols.

    I have an East German and Bulgarian. Great guns.

    Bought my IJ70 Mak here on THR. LErv it. It's a bit heavy for pocket carry, but makes for a great small IWB. Ten rounds of 9x18 on hand is nothing to sneeze at.

    Those cost money. :) I got the East German grip on a whim, for dirt cheap from a Fleabay seller.

    I have an IJ-70 that I LOVE. It is my summer carry piece. I wouldn't trade this gun for anything. You all mention buying from THR members. Is there a "for sale or trade section" in this forum?

    I'll join!

    I have more Maks than pics! Never did (yet) pic up an EG, but a few years back I picked up 3 milsurp Bulgies (sold 1), a Commercial Russian & a Russian Milsurp.

    I customized 1 of the Bulgies for carry - here's a pic:

    MMC Night Sights, Pearc Grip, Nolan Hi Drop mag release...I'm not sure what else..
