Has anyone fired one of these? I want one for my collection, but have heard pro's and con's. I checked the Makarov Forums, but they, well have a tendency to deviate from the truth, once in while. " (This .22 adaptor I bought is wonderful") when in fact it won't work at all. Etc. I can pick up a "like new" one pretty cheap.

I had one once. I regret getting rid of it (it was part of a trade for another gun). Never put a .22 unit in it or anything like that.

It would feed anything I put in the magazine. Never had a single failure to feed. You could get it dirty and it would still function like a champ.

wish I still had one...

will probably pick one up again.

:devil:

Terry, I bought a Bulgie MAK last December and have more than 1000 rds through it. It has never once jammed with the Russian FMJ I've run through it. It does jam with the Hornaday HP's though. Maybe polishing the feed ramp would help.

The fit and finish on mine is very good and its not only extremely accurate but easy to shoot too. Its small and light enough for concealed carry though I prefer my Colt Officers 45. It came with a pair of rubber grips and a pair of bakelite red star grips. I prefer the red star grips. Trigger pull is very good though I haven't measured the weight - can even get 1st hits with the DA at 15 yds.

I can't say enough good things about the MAK. If I can get it to feed HP's reliably, might even carry CCW. If the one you're looking at is in good condition, don't think you can go wrong.

RIKA :)

plinking can be done at 20% the cost, using a .22lr. The Mak rd doesn't hit ENOUGH harder than the .22 to matter any. Still need either LUCK to stop somebody with a body hit,or you have to get a brain hit. The latter can be easier with the 5xmore practice with the .22. A M21 Beretta is 5", 11ozs, DA first shot,can be altered to cocked and locked carry. A Makarov is too big and heavy forthe pants pocket. As a belt gun,it's VERY feeble,compared to what you COULD be carrying in a belt holster. A used M21 is $150, ya know.

Rika, J&G Sales has the 115gr 9x18mm Silver Bear hollowpoint for $6 per box of 50.

The Brown Bear is the copper washed case, the Silver Bear is the nickle plated case. Both use the same bullet. The bullet has a similar contour to military ball and it has a rep for flawless feeding.

This 115gr round fired out of a Makarov is only 90 fps slower than a Federal 115gr fired out of a G26.

Mike, thanks for the tip.

Glenn, I think that the Russian model with the fixed sights is C&R but the Bulgie is not. Go figure.

They ARE addicting. I bought the East German, it was C&R , a Russian IJ70 adjustable sights, not C&R and ordered the Bulgarian yesterday. I'll post pictures of it when it arrives. The East German I bought several years ago for $130.00 OTD. They are selling for around $300.00 now. The Bulgarians are not C&R.
