    Need a second opinion about buying a makarov

    Dear fellows, I wanna buy an original makarov for myself, and right now there are three available options in the local market: 1. Baikal 12 shots (used) makarov price:55k
    2. Baikal 8 shots makarov, price:60k
    and the third and last one is vintage Soviet military makarov model 1983 having shiny bore, but blueing is almost gone. Price: 70k

    The 12 shot Baikal has a much better grip and obviously you have more rounds. Have one and it's awesome.

    Makarov is usually meant for concealed carry purpose with lesser recoil. If you are looking for SD/CC then it can be attained better with 8 shot. Sufficient rounds to face an unforseen incident. JMHO. Best grip and excessive rounds are not necessary for a short distance hits.

    Actually, I already have an old model CF-98. And also a ZASTAVA SERBIA M57. So here I want to own another communist weapon, i.e. makarov..

    12 rounder lost all the charm of original design. I would request to consider new 8 shot one.

    For cc, 8 shot Mak, single stake magazine is better.. Other options are secondary whether it fits your hands & magazine capacity.. I am sure with practice the 8 rounder will also fit your hands.. practice is the main factor whether its 12 shots or 8 shots.

    Thanks Aquarius and Ahmed. Btw, I have small hands, so I think 8 shots mak would be much better as far as gripping handguns is concerned.

    With practice he will only get used to the gun it wont Fit. It's always recommended to get the gun that fits you which you don't need to get accustomed to.

    True that. That's the idea.

    Bro., CZ 999 has been proven a stone reliable combat pistol while Makarov serves the purpose of CC and SD/HD.
