This is a beautiful firearm. The finish, fitting of the various parts, the total overall look,feel,smoothness---whatever word you want to use to describe this firearm would still be inadequate to convey the level of excellance that is expressed here in the end product, the "East German Makarov". After you look this firearm over carefully, you come to realize why German engineering is excellance and is regarded by many to be the very best world wide. This one was manufactured at the Ernst Thaelmann Factory in Suhl, East Germany in 1962. Look at the 7 markings on the left side of the firearm, they confirm what this firearm is and when and where it was manufactured. The previous owner took real good care of this one, I see a very slight wear of finish at the muzzle on both sides and around the outside edges of the base of the magazine. Also, a double smudge going across the importer's stampings(Thalman mark) on the front of the grip metal?? Look at the pictures-----see the ones with the grip off? See the number on the bottom of the grip metal?? Did you look at all of the pictures?? Somebody is going to be well pleased when they buy this one because it is a nice one and I don't think there are that many around anymore?
