Great deal! The ammo alone has to be worth $150.

I carried mine for many years as a BUG, and sometimes as a Primary.

It carries well, it is reliable, and VERY accurate. I think if you get one you will be very surprised/pleased.

I haven't carried mine in sometime though, since I got my Sig P232SL.

If you do seriously consider getting one I would look at a Russian, a Bulgarian, or an East German one. The Bulgarian and East German ones seem to have a better finish and are more refined with fixed rear sights, and most of the Russians have adjustable sights.

You can't go wrong with any of them.

Hope this helps.



ETA: One more thing: I found that the weakest part on the Maks is the Decocker/Safety Lever. If you get one, order that part online and keep it handy. The nipple that holds the Decocker/Safety Lever (which also holds the Firing Pin in place) in the slide is known to shear off.

Other than that. G2G.

They conceal well. Slim, comfortable grip, adequate capacity, minimum defense caliber, poor sights, absolute shit trigger.

I "stole" one for $100.00 because of that very reason. $32.00 later (including shipping) the problem was solved. I love it.

I think I paid $65.00 for my Russian Mak from a gun shop in the early 90's. They had hundreds and hundreds of them. It came with a leather flap holster, 2 mags, cleaning rod, sight adjustment/grip removal tool, box, and papers.

The gun shop also had green 50 round boxes of Norinco 9x18 for $2.99!

I should have bought 20 Maks and 10,000 rounds of ammo.

Oh how I miss the good ol' days.
