Another share post. I believe this was made in 1984. Been a bit since I checked the year. Came with police and army issue grips. I really like the red ish bakelite, and the star is iconic, so those went back on almost immediately post purchase. I cherry picked this one several years ago...out of a whopping 3 in stock. Glad I got one before supply went dry. I've almost sold it out of the collection once when desperate. Glad I didn't. Really loves cast handloads... Which I made from cut and formed 9x19. Bore is *sweet*.

I've fired several Makarovs over the years. It seems the East German and Bulgarian are considered the best made. They are decent pistols and of a reasonable size for concealed carry. The cartridge is a little more powerful than the average .380 ACP. Accuracy can be pretty good as well.

Good enough to drill a chest sized target at reasonable defense ranges. Does what it's supposed to, even when taking into account the sloppy human variable. Lol.
Just overall a solid little piece that I'm happy to have.
