The EG is the best of the three, although also the most worn. I replaced the recoil spring. I think you should find a pair of the original finely checkered black synthetic grips which are available from several sources. Be sure that you have the correct grip screw, which should have a broad flat head with slot.

I have two Bulgarian Maks and while they are fine utilitarian examples they are nothing to look at, finish wise. Yeah, leather dye and Kiwi polish for the holster.
What do Russian military holsters look like? Can anyone post a photo? Originally Posted by rangemaster. EG is the smoothest, then the Russian, then Bulgarian. The Bulgarian is the newest and stiffest to operate.
Last edited by Inusuit; at I got one too, same vintage. Nice, robust guns, easy shooters. I have one and love it! Great little gun and well built, fit and finish is excellent! No regrets with mine! I agree, the East German Mak is the best of the bunch. I "had " a Norinco brand Mak , The sights were pretty poorly made. It was stolen out of my truck.
I contacted local police dept , gave them all the info , description , serial 's etc. I would only buy an EG mak if looking to buy another. Originally Posted by cowboy4evr.

Also, the Chinese version may not have had quite as smooth of a trigger Apparently, the Chinese were made to jump through some hoop that other nations were not Included in the box were the standard sights I imagine the idea was to make a cheap adjustable sight to satisfy import requirements, and the end-user can swap it out for the original sight.
They were brand new, but some examples were VERY rough. I remember one of the other sales guys was demonstrating the Mak for a customer, flicked the safety on or off, who remembers? EG mostly, as I don't believe the Bulgys had become available yet. Anyway, one customer mentioned having an early Chinese Mak, and how beautifully it was built. I chimed in that I had one also, and he mentioned how he wished he'd kept the original sights instead of swapping with the standard fixed sight.
When I asked him why, he replied that it was next to impossible to find a Chinese Mak with those original sights, and they were much sought after. When I said no thanks, he kept raising his offer. I have no idea. I've not heard anyone saying that since then And especially with the lack of gobs of markings on the slide.
Almost impossible to find in the US, I'd imagine. Not sure if the pics I saw were special models for officers, or higher ranking party members, or were just standard Maks.

All times are GMT The time now is East German Makarov I got my East German Makarov yesterday, this one came with a East German black police holster with a faint name written inside of it, and two magazines.
It was made in and is in great shape for it's age. I got it with a box of ammo as well. Can't wait to get it out to the range, hopefully next week. Find all posts by David LaPell.
