    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.

    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 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.

    Very nice Mitho bhai very detail review , baikal made makarov might be after 50+ years of original makarov and they do some of alterations as per today requirements and they full fill it .

    While this thread is almost a decade old, I was wondering about the price of Makarov (Russian) in 2021 and its availability. I would appreciate if any member is able to guide. Thanks

    I purchsed one starting of Jan 2020, during height of scarcity of New weapons. Cost me 165K from karachi. I'm sure you can get it now for around 130 140 in KHI

    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.
