Ok, I bought a Makarov last week - had to wait 3 full days to pick it up.
This pistol is so sweet. I ran 50 rounds thru it. when I picked it up, I went to the range. The two mags were so full of comosline that I could only get 6 or 7 rounds into them. The pistol should have been cleaned before being shot. The gun did not hicup once.
It is amasing the amount of machining required to make this pistol - picked it up for less than 200 bucks out the door. To me it has every bit of the workman ship required to make a M1 garand.
I will see if I can find one of his brothers or sisters this weekend.
Sweet! Good to know it was perfect for you! Mine are also 100%. If you can find an East German Mak get it!
