I found an unissued Bulgarian Makarov for $190, with cleaning kit and 2 mags.

Is this a good deal? I've heard good things about these little guns, but haven't kept up on the current prices.

Thanks in advance.

Bud, you might try asking this question over in the Handgun Forum also. Say Hi to Josh for us.

That is NOT a great deal for a Bulgie Mak. I've seen and paid $120-$140 OTD for them. The East German models are superior but currently hard to find. I have heard about numerous problems with the commercial Bulgie Maks (sold under the "Arsenal" banner) but the military/police Bulgies are nice. You may have to polish the feed ramp in order to feed HP (hey, it was designed for FMJ) and you may need to replace the recoil spring with a Wolffe replacement (they sell a Mak tuning kit) other than that it should work like a champ. FWIW I've owned 2 EG and 2 Bulgie Maks. Check over at www.gunboards.com / message boards / Makarovs

Thanks for the useful information, Makarov.

Bud, I have a Russian Military 9X18 Makarov pistol, and it is a Great pistol. Go to www.Makarov.com

In Shotgun news is ad I believe for those who have there FFL, 1 @ $109.00 or 2 @ $99.00
