    Is there any notable difference in quality Over each version of makarov ? I used to have the nickel but sold it and regret my decision. Such a nice artefact

    Some say earlier models were better made but the difference between early and late Maks is not that vast. All are properly made from firearms grade materials and are easy to work on. A few features that early models did not have are: a discreet CO2 cartridge piercing screw, an enlarged muzzle to mimic a 9mm bore (purely cosmetic I know but it looks better) and narrower grips that resemble the PM more than earlier models did. Also, the magazine loading hole is 4.5mm wide on today's models and the follower can be locked in place whilst loading.

    I like 'em all!
