I just got a 9mm makarov pistol at a pawn shop
it's kind of hard for me to identify if it's a PM, a PMM, or someone could have modified it to have a .38 barrel or maybe it's a .38 without the markings
it has a circle ten for bulgaria I think it was made in 85 by it's numbers
I need to get some ammo to test it, it seems like a nice gun it does operate mechanically how it is supposed to when i check it out
can I take a ruler to the barrel so I can verify that I am purchasing safe ammunition?
I have heard you cannot chamber the ammo in it that it won't take anyway if you try but maybe it would work then I would be afraid of shooting unsafe ammo
I think it probably takes 9x19mmPM ammo but unsure
Any help would be appreciated I could post a pic of it maybe.
