Bulgarian Mak price

I just purchased a Bulgarian Mak with a 1000 rounds of S&B ammunition for $299.00. In the Peoples State of Maryland one buys what is available when it's available because between the cartridge case law and the integral lock law things are getting tight (although the Maks probably all are old enough to bypass these laws). Did I get took?
I also would like some more information about the custom work that was done on Richards pistol (which is very attractive,by the way). I know that I am going to have to change those sights. Did I also get an inkling that these can be converted to .380? And if so, would that be a better choice for a reloader?
Thanks, WalterB

Well, I paid $149.00 last August for a Bulgie Mak at a gun show that was part of MCRGO's Annual meeting and family day, but I'd say with the 1000 rounds of ammo, I think you got a decent deal.

Some people are going to complain about price on some weapons. My thought is this, if you want the gun, and you have the money, is it worth it to YOU??? That is the final question.

I've been very happy with my Mak, yet some are going to tell me I paid 10-20 too much. So what. I saw it, I wanted it, I had the cash that the old man selling it wanted for it.

So far, I've changed three things on mine. I swapped the commerical Pearce grips with Russian military style grips, I put the finger extensions on the magazines, and I JUST (today) polished the feed ramp so it would feed the Silver Bear 120 grain JHP ammo I have.

The grips and mag extenders came from http://www.makarov.com . The feed polishing was done with a Dremel tool.

I'm happy with mine!

I don't see any reason to convert a Mak from 9x18 to 9x17(.380) unless ammo becomes scarce. At the momment 9x18 ammo is plentiful and cheap. Starline makes brass and it isn't a problem to find dies. I say reload! Regards, Richard
