    My Four Maks

    I thought I had shown my four Makarov pistols on this site but I was remiss. Well, here they are in a group photo. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy owning them. Regards, Richard

    Richard,
    I've considered getting a Makarov because they were inexpensive and plentiful but I know nothing about them other than what I just read in your posts on the other thread (which are very informative). What type of ballistics does the 9x18 have ref. velocity and/or energy? I would guess they would be less than the 9x19 Luger. Do they ever convert these to the 9x19? What are the costs of getting a hard chrome job, etc.? Sorry for so many questions.

    Thanks to all for the compliments.

    Charlie, the Mak 9x18 is dead center between the .380 (9x17) and 9mm Luger (9x19). The Maks are very good handguns and I do not feel naked carrying one. See if you can find a Bulgarian Mak at a reasonable price (-$200) and you should be okay.

    If You can't find a Mak for less than $200 look at used 9mm Star BMs. SOG has been selling the BMs for $129.95 and thay are a bargain. The picture is my Star BM.

    Regards,

    Richard

    Try this site.

    I have a 1988 Bulgarian Makarov Circle 10.

    There is a wealth of info here: http://www.gunboards.com/forums/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=3

    Good luck and have fun reading up on these true, reasonable, reliable gems.

    What approzimately would it cost to turn a plain jane Bulgie Mak into one like yours?

    That is one sharp weapon!

    Thankx, Wooddogg.

    This is just a guess on my part but here goes: Novak Colt .380 nite sites installed $275, hard chrome by Tripp or Ford's Guns $150, Grips by Hakan $70. I guess my Bulgie Mak cost me about $650 but I feel having a one of a kind pistol is worth it. Regards, Richard

    I think you have a great gun there.

    Great job on making it a one of a kind.

    Thankx again, Wooddogg.
