Miltex Makarov 9mm

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

If you are familiar with the Makarov design and are a gunsmith, you might try this Miltex-branded version. Otherwise, stay away. Just as you may wonder why Ford doesn't bring back the original Thunderbird convertible, you might wonder why this design can't be improved as well. We wish some company would do so.

The trigger is double action only with a very heavy pull and long reach. Superb grip ergonomics made the gun very easy to shoot, however.
The firing pin and de-cocker decided to exit the slide after only 25 shots.
