    Re: Bulgarian Makarov or a CZ-82

    I ordered a Bulgarian Makarov today. I'll have some pictures sometime next week when it comes in.

    Re: Bulgarian Makarov or a CZ-82

    I've owned my Bulgarian Makarov for about four years now. Zero failure issues with it at all. Well made, sturdy, and fires everything I've put through it. It's a good carry size also, a little heavy as it's all steel construction. The only problem I've had is finding affordable mags that are in good shape.

    BTW, I purchased mine at Gander Mountain for $105.00. Actually only cost me about $20 as I used a $100 gift card for purchase.

    Maks are much easier to take apart.

    CZ looks like a much better pistol though. I'd get both.

    I picked one up from J&G Sales for $249 with two magazines, a holster and both the red star and a black plastic grip in very good condition.

    I'll make sure and get some pictures up when I get it.

    Might be a chicken or the egg thing. They were pressured by "Big Brother" to replace their 7.62x25 ammo with the Makarov round. Rather than adopt the Mak pistol, they designed their own pistol -- and at the same time developed a more powerful version of the 9x18 round.

    Go with the CZ-82. You can get an 83 barrel and shoot .380 out of it as well.

    I have the Bulgarian Makarov. It's a good, solid pistol and a great value for the money. Never had a CZ so I can't compare them.

    Re: Bulgarian Makarov or a CZ-82

    I've owned several Makarovs, all are good, some are great.
    Where is this "the CZ-82 was designed for a more powerful cartridge than 9mm Makarov but the cases are identical" crap coming from??? The Czechs might've loaded their 9X18 hotter than the soviets - wouldn't be the first time - but I want to see actual proof that it's a different cartridge. The Soviets designed 9X18 to be the hottest possible with the straight blowback of the Makarov pistol.

    A noted authority on the matter?

    Cz82/83 - Modern Firearms

    And it's not a "different cartridge" any more than the .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO are "different cartridges". However, if you shoot 5.56 NATO in a .223 Remington barrel, you can have issues (just like shooting the Czech über-9x18 cartridge in any other combloc member's 9x18 pistol could lead to "surprises")
    "Tactical" is a mindset, not an equipment list.
