Please look at all the photos and read the entire auction. I am finally starting to run low on these! Four remaining as I compose this re-write... These are in superb condition. Emphasis should be placed on the last half dozen or so photos. Listed as "excellent", by NRA antique standards in use here, but I am generally sending the best first, and all I have now are close to mint, the very WORST are NRA "excellent" ++ as of now, and I generally have at least three, sometimes as many as seven. THE PHOSPHATED ("PARKERIZED") SLIDE VERSION IS NOW SOLD!!! I have another in the heavy red grease which MAY be phosphated...won't know until I clean it up, so if you're interested, CONTACT ME BEFOREHAND and I'll advise you when I know. Fragments of that grease are visible in some of the closeups... Lovely stuff to clean up! I use pipe cleaners and toothpicks. I will be completely re-doing the photos featuring that one some time before May 15th. See the bottom five to seven shots for a few current ones. Check my feedback, between here and the "other site" I have sold about 20 of these, and people LOVE them and their overall quality and condition!!! Again: check the words of actual consumers who have received these from me and were startled in a positive way. Some confusion: the "white" you see in lubricating areas is lithium grease. I have not lubricated a firearm with "gun oil" in over thirty years, and never will again. Also, the white highlights at the edges of the slide are photographic reflections, NOT WEAR. These guns show no finish wear at all except where the safety detent spring describes an arch in its "well". You're looking at photo highlights which define the shape. I will send the best first, though really, the last half dozen, one could toss a coin! They're being sold ONE AT A TIME. Barrels are superb, functioning flawless. Am using several to illustrate. As inventory changes (I have plenty!), I'll periodically update the photos. Magazine numbers do NOT match, albeit the mags appear to be nearly NEW.
Holster, spare reddish-brownish grip set included. PHOTO with cartridges ILLUSTRATES AMMO AVAILABLE, THE AMMO IS NOT INCLUDED!!! I am especially fond of this loading, which is somewhat more potent than .380, and is now available from several U.S. manufacturers, including Hornady, Speer, Winchester, and Federal. S&B markets very nice, reasonably priced rounds, too. Accepts all PM Makarova magazines and
accessories--Soviet, East German, Bulgarian, or Chinese, and any other dedicated PM paraphenalia from the last forty years or so. These have a great reputation for accuracy and
reliability, and are about the right size for convenient carry, in whatever way is legal in your venue. Note: I have used several pistols for the photos, but only ONE is for sale per auction.
Again: if you prefer some vintage or marking, ask before bidding, and I will check. These are actual East Bloc military
Makarovs, not the commercials, and normally these carry a small premium. Again: loading
is 9x18 Makarov, not 9x19 or .380, although weirdly, I have seen these superb little pistols
fire .380 (not very accurately! The .380 bullet is .355, whereas these bores are about .363") without
even much confusion! Clearly marked with the "circle 10" Warsaw Pact country/arsenal identifier. Also, the ones with phosphated slides are the only ones where magazine do NOT match by serial number. Again: The phosphated one is SOLD, and I will be re-doing the photos quite soon. These are selling even faster than I anticipated!!!
$22 SHI full insured lower 48. Figure about twelve bucks more if this has to go FEDEX, which it will to C&R holders. Check the feedback here, or ask questions if need be. Personal or company checks are acceptable, but may cause a day to a few days' delay in shipping your item, due to clearance considerations. If you have questions, ask them BEFORE bidding, not after. I am FFL--all laws and rules apply. No shipments to California FFL's except upon payment of a $20 paperwork fee to complete the pre-clearance required by CA-DOJ.
Payment and Shipping Instructions:
$22 full SHI, but MORE for C&R's because this must in that case (about twelve bucks more, if to a residential address...this has recently gone up AGAIN!!!!) move via FEDEX EXPRESS. Inquire beforehand if that is to be the case, please! NO PayPal, GPAL, credit cards. I take personal checks, hold for clearance. Normally USPS Priority, FEDEX, sometimes use area carriers. Can expedite beyond that, but ASK! If required, include license (if/as necessary) w/payment, please. Ask questions before bidding, not AFTER!
