CENTURY INTL ARMS BULGARIAN MAKAROV 9X18MM 8RD
[HG765X]
$296.00
by Leon B Date Added: Thursday 27 October, 2011
I had previously written a review upon receipt of the pistol but it was not posted for some reason. The pistol is described as "refurbished excellent condition" by Century. My sample of one did not reflect that. The pistol has nice deep bluing but was let down by moderate pitting at four locations on the slide. It also had corrosion on the rear sight and the slide grooves. Outside of the Century boys rolling their mark on the slide I saw no evidence of any refurbishment and would hardly call this "excellent" condition. I was able to clean the corrosion by vigorous scrubbing with Kroil and a nylon brush. The pitting is deep enough that it is now part of the "patina". Now the good news. Pistol looked barely used. It comes with a unused black leather holster, 2 hard to get mags and a combo cleaning rod/tool. They also give you 2 grips. A smooth black one (nice for range but useless for a fighting gun. The other grip is the original Bulgarian brown/red with the commie star. Nice grip. At the range it was flawless, accurate and fun to shoot. Ran Silver Bear FMJ & HP and Hornady XTP. All worked with no issues. My original rating was 3 stars but uprated to 4 stars for the flawless operation. As with any other Century product it's a roll of the dice with what you get. i realize it's a used gun but don't agree with it's "excellent" rating by Century. I'm disappointed with the pitting but delighted with it's function and there is value there with the package. As usual Buds service is super.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
