    The Makarov can be found in 380. They can also be converted to 380. A Mak chambered in 9X18 CAN fire 380 in a pinch. Highly recommended that this isn't done though.

    I think it would be sweet of it could be converted to 9X19, but I think the longer round just wouldn't fit...

    I may have misunderstood the question, but the CZ82 is an awesome little firearm, can be had with 13-round mags, and the Mak ammo is readily available in both surplus and SD varieties. Also, you can find the pistols themselves for less than $200. Great little pistol!

    The Makarov is a fine gun, built well, reliable, easy to maintain and accurate. The ammo can be a little hard to find. Maks are bigger and heavier than a P238, but can be a good CC weapon.

    That was exactly what I was thinking as soon as I got my 15 year old niece to translate the original post. I have a CZ82 that I paid $175 for and it is one of the most reliable guns I own. High capacity, small size, never had a jam, very accurate and just a lot of fun to shoot. It was the main issue gun for the Czech Army for many years. I trust it.

    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...
