    i know its not a makarov, but some folks just cant get that "makarov" title to stay with only a Makarov. so any gun that shoots the 9mm "Mak" round is ignorantly titled as a makarov no matter what the gun actually is......

    now that we have that aside, if you have personal experience with the gun mentioned above, please share it.

    the price is under $200.00, the round is the borderline area for minimum levels of defense commonly accepted....the higher powered rounds make any blow back gun lousy to shoot considering the power to recoil ratio if you will...

    this would be just a fun gun or maybe a "stash" gun.....

    I have one and shoots tight groups for a small gun. sO far no FTF or FTE on both FMJ and HPs. As for the grips it needs a little of dexterity to handle. I practice shooting it one handed right and left to simulate a quick draw for self defense and it s ok as long as you are used to its stout recoil. Again if you are used to shooting high caliber handguns it wouldnt be a problem.
    Mine is a 1973 with a spur like hammer. Its easier to cock . Again these guns are well made and pls dont dry fire . I had mine like 400 plus DF and broke the safety . Luckily the seller was kind enought to replace it free , if not, i would have had a hard time finding a part.

    Im planning to use mine as a park strolling CCW like this summer. Hides well in a Bianchi Pro 100 IWB or Don Hume 715 IWB. GOod luck.

    I like mine. Very accurate, nary a malfunction, easy to conceal. All in a caliber that I consider a decent defense round. I don't have very long range sessions with it because it gets a bit painful after a few rounds.
    I also have a "real" Makarov, but I like them both, they each have their own virtues.

    Me too!

    Mine is a '73 with the spur hammer, this thing (like most pinned barrel guns) is a tack driver. After about 800 rounds (Fmj, Hp, and virtually every brand available) not one single hiccup. Recoil is snappy, but your not going to the range for an afternoon of plinking with this one anyway;). The also throw the brass about 12 feet away over your shoulder:eek: All steel, very well made, bluing is first rate on mine. My advice is get it you wont be sorry.

    Also much is made about the heavy trigger pull which is rated at 29# (strangely, the factory single action pull is more like my uncles tuned 1911, just about 3 lbs, and breaks like glass), anyway Wolf makes replacement recoil, and main springs.
    Dennis Marschalko, also makes some pretty excellent grips for them.
