There were some negative comments made about com-bloc guns by our know-it-all non-gun owner, but, give him this, he start's some thought processes going. How many cheap POS Commieguns do you own? In my case, a lot. The "looks like crushed beer cans and orange crate and shoots like Star Wars" AK. Numerous Chinese and Yugoslavian SKS's. More Yugoslavian M48A Mausers than I'll ever need. Opened up the gun safe (of course the alarm went off and the phone rang immediately because I forgot to dial the code, they bill me for it, too!) But anyway, half a dozen combloc pistols. Why all this commie crap? Three reasons. Cheap. You can get everything I've mentioned except the Poly-Tech AKS for less than $200.00. Solid. They all WORK. The Tokarev and CZ 52 are tricky with HP's, but with ball they just shoot and shoot. AK'S and SKS's are the Duracell's of guns they just keep going and going. Mausers's don't need any words from me. Hunt with it, shoot it for the heck of it for pennies.Mosin-Nagant's for $70.00?? My M-44 kicks like hell, but it would bring down deer pretty reliably out to 100 yards or so. Makarov's are the best buy on the market, bar none. A double action, ultimately reliable, medium ranged caliber semi-automatic that fires fairly inexpensive ammunition. For down to business shooting you can get 115 Grain HP's. I have three flavor's, German, Russian, and Bulgarian. I want a Chinese. I've rambled on enough. I'll just close by saying these gun's are not going to be out there forever. Don't miss your chance.
