Of course choice should be for "No2" which gives you advantages of 4 exta shots, being a brand new, easy availabilty of ammunition ( 9x19) and saving your few thousand rupees.
But it is suggested that adding few more thousand and switching your mind from these handguns, you should go for something else like if you are fond of Russian handguns then Baikal Viking 446 is the best. If not Viking then PG will guide you in an appropriate manner.

I Have a baikal one.
Only thing the old mak has over the baikal is its single stack grip.baikal has bit bulky grip which makes CC a bit difficult but for me it conceals just fine.
Now what baikal has that old mak does not
12 round capacity
mag release button near trigger gaurd.the old maks have it at the base of the grip.cant eject the mag single handedly.which is a big no for me specially in SD situations.
Third better looking and better ergonomics.
So far has been trouble free.
Ps.going to get a silmer wooden grip made for it.that will take care of the bulky plastic grip.

Chioce #1 certainly.. its the best conceal carry weapon arround provided its the original Russian Military Makarov of 1976 because clones are very difficult to differentiate & price is really attractive.. please make sure & inspect it thoroughly, if possible take an expert if in doubt.. I will again say for 58K, its really good.

The Baikal-442 Makarov pistol was developed specifically for export purpose. The Baikal-442 rearsight is adjustable for both elevation and windage zeroing. For a carry purpose, rear adjustable sights are not appreciated as they are prone to damage after strangling in clothes and with frequent withdrawal from the holster. These handguns are meant for target/competitive shooting, after it should be returned to its BOX.

I suggest OLD IS GOLD.

There different variants of baikal 442.
Mine have the same sights a orignal mak.
So wont be keeping it back in the box after shooting.......
Yup orignal mak is a collectable item.
How many of us drive a 1976 toyota corolla.???????????

manner.

Wolf Hunter brother choice #2 is also a Makarov by Baikal which uses the same Ammunition as #1 ie 9x18 instead of 9x19.

I find that orginal makarov has better ergonomics and feels better in hand. I was not that impressed by baikal , at that time was costing 65 k . But for orginal makarov it has to be a genuine piece as there lot of copies Available

BAIKAL MAKAROV with no second thought , its as reliable as mak and with better finish n higher cap, also depends on the peices and conditions you are getting.
