I wanted to get the ball rolling....

I recieved a translated edition of Dieter Marschall's book the other day. Great stuff! One exciting piece of East German info, was that two of the engineers at the Shul plant recieved prison terms for shoddy worksmanship! They had decided to use >cast< parts (I would assume safeties and such) instead of machined. The result was premature parts breakage and all Makarovs being overhauled. I wonder if that is why almost all hammers and safetys having that "case-hardened" look to it.

I got one last week from Ray Riling Arms Books at their table at the Harrisburg, PA show. http://www.rayrilingarmsbooks.com

The book is detailed here:

http://www.rayrilingarmsbooks.com/cgi-bin/rrb455.cgi/8997.html

You might try asking Karl or George first, they may have it in stock.

IMO, the Marschall book is an excellent reference on the structure of the arms DDR agencies and groups, and the handguns that those organizations used. Included are Maks, Toks, PSM, P-38, PP, PPk, the Romanian M74, and others. Excellent section on holsters with many pics.

Well worth it.

Sounds like a good book, I think I might get one.
But the title is a mouthful...

Sorry for the delay in replying... my internet connection has been awful all weekend.

I bought my copy from the publisher and got the author to sign it.
The English version of the book is available at $29.95 plus $3.50
shipping. Order from: Ucross Books, POB 764, Los Alamos, NM 87544. No
COD or CCs, checks must clear.
I suggest if you have an intrest in East German Makarovs, then you should get it.

If you have an interest here this is a damn good reference and, IMO, well worth the money.

Dieter's book sounds to me like a must-have.

Dieters book fills a void that is little known. Covers a wide range of DDR pistols. His book on walther pistols is also good.
