Check out the Polish P64 in 9mm Makarov, smallest of the east block makarovs.

Classic Firearms has them for $199.

Where I live Mak ammo is plentiful (Walmart even has some) but I know it's not like that everywhere. They are a bit heavy, but not too bad. Get some thin custom grips and you'll be golden. And parts for the 83 (apart from the bbl) are interchangeable

Had a Mak a few years ago and liked it alot. Rugged, reliable, accurate, cheap ammo, better CC ammo available.
One thing I wasn't crazy about was the heel catch for the mag release, but that's a small downside.
I would love to own another one.

Nice and the newest or the labeled best pistol is usually far from it I say if it shoots well and reliable enough 2 trust my life with it then Idc if it's heavier or not as pretty... That's y I enjoy glocks and any Russian style weapon...
