I'm not found of Grach at all.
Makarov is an excellent pistol. Absolutely reliable, small, and in a good round packs bigger punch then 380 SiG 232, all while at more then half the
Best ones were maid in East Germany, and those cost around $400.
One of my favorites is HK P7 M8/13. Some people like them, some don't. I love em, they are built like a Swiss watch, just beautiful
Out mass produced pistols SA XD9 takes the 1st. Previously it was know as IMI Metal HS2000, and back in the day sold for around $250. As soon as
Springfield bought the distribution rights though, they jacked up the price to well over $400.
HS2000 combines the best of Glock with the Best of SIG, in IMHO is currently the best mass produced auto loader.
If you like Russian military gear, Gsh-18 might very well be the best military pistol yet. Just barely larger then a mak, holds 18 of +P+ AP rounds,
etc. Damn impressive, I want one.
I can't wait 'till I can get my hands on one.
P.S. Beretta's suck, I got one, put about 5K of rounds through it, the aluminum is cracking, and now I can't even sell the damn thing.
No mentioning constant cleaning it requires. You can literally see THROUGH the damn thing, so when firing from prone, it just suck all the dirt like
a vacuum cleaner.
Rack the slide, hang it on the catch, and you can see the gap between the slide and the frame right above the the handle, and if looking through the
back of the firing pin, you can see right out the barrel.
It was never a military weapon to begin with, but a Police weapon. In the field it's more useful as a paper weight.
Bring back the .45 damn it, I don't even care if it's re chambered for 9mm in a double stack.
For military .45ACP is an obsolete round though. No AP capability, while 9mm APs will zip through a jacket, and a slow/heavy .45s will just slap it
It is true that in the modern battlefield there is no more place for the .45, but going with F92 9mm is the worst way to go.
Just like Seals say, "You aint a Seal until you've tasted Italian steel."
Hot rounds tear the slide right of the rails and plant in the shooter face.
The "Brigadier" model with thickened slide walls by the ejector port is supposed to take hot rounds with out tearing the slide of, but the Seals
learned their lesson and stick with HK.
