I traded my way into a new pistol yesterday. Having owned just about one of everything over the years, I decided it was time to try one out. Why I hadn't done so before, I have no clue considering that I am an AK fanatic, and am also a big fan of the Mosin Nagant rifles (seems I am drawn to the commie guns for some reason). Anyway, I got myself an IJ-70, which is a Russian Makarov that was made for the commercial export market. Mine came chambered for .380 ACP from the factory. The difference between the commercial and milsurp versions being that the commercial version has an adjustable rear sight to allow for importation into the US as a "sporting" gun. The pistol looks basically like brand new, and came with the original factory box, manual, warranty cards, take down tool, cleaning rod, brown leather military style holster, 2 magazines, a spare recoil spring, and a brand new chrome lined barrel in 9x18 Makarov. From what I can tell, I am going to really like this gun. Anybody else here a fan of the Makarov pistol? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
