ksharpe10: One great carry pistol, hope you still have it.
mike che: cool gun
i like how it looks
Russian Filipino: I can't find a russian made Makarov anywhere. I sat with my dealer for two hours and still couldn't find one.
Tony K: if u dont like it will give u 100 bucks for it,ha ha ha
shywade01: Do other clips fit?
shywade01: Is that the only clip that fits?
hunttonasket: I have a Russian model shoots great and is very accurate I just put a little white paint on the front sight, but your right that's one hell the spring
Shane McDowell: Stalin owned one of these! :D
cramsa: I got one on lay away... looks like it was in good condition with a lil wear on the outside but it was solid. Will pay down all of it soon and cant wait to shoot it... $199 for mine.
kg9pz: Thanks! I've read that Russian made models are the better ones. I anxious to see how it runs, also.
It's too bad the debut of my new intro was spoiled by the glitch, but it all better now. I think it looks great! My friend did a great job!
Xerxes1688: This hi-cap version is based on the military Makarov PMM. The PMM, in 9x18mm Makarov, not only had a higher capacity than the original Makarov, but also a stronger recoil spring so they can use +P+ amor piercing loads without damaging the gun. Not sure about your Baikal, but since you mentioned that the recoil spring is pretty strong, maybe it can accept hotloads too.
kg9pz: LOL! Yeah it'll do that if your volume is up when it starts! Thanks!
kg9pz: Thank for the comment! I wasn't aware of the hi-cap version. I think this might be my only Makarov, though. Thanks for the info!
Xerxes1688: I actually like how it looks, it's simple, spartan. There's also a hi-capacity versión, with a fatter grip to accomodate 12 round, double stack, single-column feed magazines.
ChromeFreak123: Thank you for all the kind words. It is great to hear when one of my videos actually helped someone. Its the whole reason I do these videos. Thanks brother. : )
kg9pz: Thank you! It appears to have had little use. I traded for it on a whim, but may not keep it. I'll reserve judgement until I've put a few rounds through it. I hope to get it to the range this weekend for a test run. Watch for the range report video! Thanks for commenting.
kg9pz: Thanks! I think the Makarov is one of those guns that has no middle ground, it seems to be a love, or hate, kind of thing.
sunbaskingman: That's one of the better condition Makarovs I've seen.
RETIREINARIZONA: Very nice intro and video, Makarov's are not for me .
kg9pz: Thanks! I'm hoping it is, Steve. I'm looking forward to shooting the weekend of the 22nd & 23rd. I have to work this weekend, so I'll have to wait & see. I have high expectations.
MakingMasterClass: Thats a great looking little pistol brother. I bet the recoil is minimal with the weight.
kg9pz: Thanks, brother! That intro is working out great! I hope sent some new subs your way, my friend, you deserve all you get. Not that you needed my help with that. LOL!
Thanks for commenting!
TheHobbyistChannel: Nice:-), nice addition to the collection too. Always good to meet new people here on YT!
kg9pz: That's great to know, Chromefreak! Thank you for stopping by and sharing that with me! I appreciate your comment.
BTW, your 1911 disassembly/reassembly video really helped me out! I had forgotten the direction of the disconnector when reassembling. Saved my old Springer from the smelter! LOL! Thanks for posting it.
ChromeFreak123: I am a complete Makarov Freak. lol. Its a great shooting little gun and perfect for ccw. You will love how accurate it is with the fixed barrel and also polygonal barreling. Great find. : )
kg9pz: Agreed. I'm very fortunate to have a friend in TheHobbyistChannel! Thanks!
kg9pz: Thanks! We can take it to the range when you get your CZ back.
kg9pz: Thank you, sir. The east block had some differnt ideas about weaponry, but you can't argue about reliability & function over form.
stlrayedwards: Oh and BTW, I love the intro! Very cool!
stlrayedwards: I don't think it's ugly at all...I like it! Great vid and congrats on the purchase/trade!
ITHINKUREALESUK: interesting design, thanks for sharing. got some nice functions, ie deroosterer!
phishst1cks: high quality looking pistol..cant wait for the range vid..nice intro..
Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
