Go to www.makarov.com and you'll be able to find the information you're looking for.

A double circle 10 is a Bulgarian Makarov. (I have an EG Makarov that I might be willing to part with if you still want one.) The EG maks are considered some of the best maks ever produced.

Check out makarov.com and the mak forum somewhere on gunboards.com. Enjoy your bulgie!

Websensei is correct, it is a Bulgarian Mak. I have one & love it.

The purpleish looking parts are definetely Bulgarian. East German Maks are finished in a blue-shimmering black.
