My E. German Maks are made beautifully and point more naturally for me then just about any other handgun I own.

May as well add my $0.02 worth. Mine's a Russian Mak. It has a really nice trigger that's gotten even better with time, points well and is accurate. Don't care much for the adjustable "target" sights but they work okay. I'd like to get an E German or Bulgarian Mak with fixed sights.

BB,

FYI-I started w/a Bulgy Mak...There is no comparison between a Bulgy and an EG. Just the bluing alone shows the difference in quality. I sold my Bulgy and went w/EG's. IMHO I'd wait until I could afford it and get the EG.


I'll get a Russian just because I can and they're C&R's too. I got a set of target grips from Makarov.com for a Russian.

Since they are reliable and shoot any ammo I think of them as Glock's w/soul.

I've got 2 Bulgy makes. They've been great. :)

I love them too, I own 2 Bulgarian Maks. I would like to find a nice East German mak someday also.

If you or anyone you know wants a commercial Russian Mak I've got one for sale on EE.
Link Posted: 4/1/2003 12:21:11 AM EDT
2 Bulgarians, 2 Russians and an extra slide(Beast) and all parts except frame to build my 5th.

I have an EG that Geoff at Beast worked on...too bad he's not doing any more.

Have to say for my .02 cents I love this Baikal more than the rest of Pistols I've owned,shoots good,carries great in a Don Hume,cheap ammo. etc.The option for me was a Kahr P9 or P40 but could'nt face knowing the wear and tear on the Kahr from carrying and the price for use....Just what the Doctor ordered.............Makarov

New to the board, I love Maks, awesome little pistols. I have 2 EG and one Russian Commercial w/ adj. sites. My favorite are the EGs. Just my .02....

Hi houtexgunner,

Welcome aboard!

3 EG's (1 in 99% condition!) man that German quality...even though they were Commies it still shines thru. I had a Bulgie and the differences were so great that I sold it after I got a look at my 1st EG!

Yeah, I was hoping to get him to do my Bulgy...
Link Posted: 4/24/2003 8:13:36 AM EDT
Geoff says he isn't doing any more due to illness...What a shame, NICE GUY and Great work too.
Link Posted: 4/24/2003 9:26:47 AM EDT
I love Maks! (big suprise) I own 2 EGs & 2 Bulgies. One of each are my "shooters" and I have one of each in truly New, Unissued condition. I bought my EGs when AIM had them for $150 and I think that included shipping!
Link Posted: 4/26/2003 7:16:53 AM EDT
I own 2 Bulgy's,I love them.Fun to shoot,cheap to feed.And they will last from now on.
Link Posted: 4/26/2003 7:35:17 AM EDT
Anyone using them as your CCW???
Link Posted: 4/26/2003 11:41:39 AM EDT
Not until I get an action job and better sights. SA is light and crisp, but the DA is so heavy it took some practice before I wasn't "double tapping."

Not good for a carry gun. Is there another smith doing Mak work at the level of Geoff?

I guess I am bumping this back to current. Ive post here before but have an update. Sold my Russian IJ when I found a Simson Suhl. Got it for what I sold my IJ plus $100 bucks, still steep but very very nice. I love Makarovs!

W-W, thanks for the welcome!

You welcome...

We need to keep this thread current until me find a new 'Smith now that Geoff isn't taking any work.
