The Poles have a P64 in 9X18 Makarov, it is not a Mak, just shoots the same caliber.
About the size of a PPK or HSc, it may not be as highly regarded as a Mak, but the P-64 is still a very fine pistol.

oh god man, do not call it a makarov....There are people on some boards who will litterally eat your liver for saying such things. I called it (and still do) a polish mak, and they decended on me. Luckily, the liver can heal itslef, and mine is ok despite the damage done to it.

We can be a sensitive bunch, can't we? :D

The folks who really went ballistic over calling a P-64 a Makarov haven't posted much to the new forum.

But sellers will sometimes label a 9x18 pistol a Makarov because of the Makarov's reputation, and that's why some guys got understandably sore.

The real problem arises when a person see that and thinks they have a Makarov Pistol, and try to order parts or other accessoroes for them, and then find out they don't fit.

Please don't eat my liver and I know its not a makarov but the one I put on layaway the other day says Polish Makarov right on the slide. Im not sure if they all have that on the slide but if they do I can see why people could get confused.

Not to worry, I don't even like liver! It may say Polish and Makarov on it, and I can see where that would deceive a lot of people, but it only shoots the Makarov caliber. Its not made like one.

It would be like calling a P-38 or a Browning Hi-Power a "Luger" because it uses 9mm Luger cartridges.

It is very easy to get confused if you do not do your own research; more so when you buy uniformed.

I think the Makarov gets the top shelf in my cabinet. Yes I own a Polish P-64, but it fits my wife's hand just right for her carry weapon, so "Don't be a girlie mahnn" as Awnod would say, and get a Mighty Mak to carry and leave the P-64's to the .... :D :D :p :rolleyes: Wow, It is easy to stir it up, isn't it IJ70? I don't argue with the guys at the shows on this matter, but they say, "It says so right on the slide". I just keep walking, too many guns to gander at and so little time. :) TTH and all the P-64 guys, I'm just funnin' trying to get a laugh or two. BTW, has anyone seen the "guns" on TTH, why he could pop my head like a pimple, :eek: so I say again, I am just kidding. :p But they are two different animals, and even though mine is quite accurate, the Mak is the best.
