I just bought a Bulgarian Makarov from Dan's. It was made in 1980 the same year I was born! On Makarov.com it says that the 1980 series was a limited series. Does anybody how many was produced that year?
I think the limited series meant not all production codes (two letter prefix in serial number) were used that year. It wouldn't necessarily mean only a few made that year. The mysterious Mr. O that makarov.com dealt with didn't explain that well, at least as I understand it.
