    Default Makarov air guns - models and differences?

    I received a Makarov CO2 gun for Christmas, sold by Pyramid Air, from Umarex. A good looking gun and I am curious now what different air gun versions there are and the differences between them.

    This gun uses a co2 cartridge, and has a 16 4.5mm bb's capacity. The slide racks, and it has a safety, and operates in SA and DA. I have yet to shoot it. Looks like a real Mak except the finish is real shiny. The slide is definately not a Mak slide. I am mostly sure it is painted and not a bluing, parkerizing, or gunkote type finish.

    The sights are poor, all black, no dots or outlines.

    Hi,
    I know at least 3 different models of Airsoft Makarov's (see pic). Yours (up left), the MP654-K (middle) and a Brocock (up right) conversion. As I don't use them for competition, but only for fun and as collectible, I'm unable to tell you wich one is the more precise. The more difficult to do with is the Brocock one. The system is far too complicated.
    PS: My Umarex has no litterature on the slide: this model is sold in Europe.

    Very nice collection... I want to add others to mine, and I want the most similar in design if possible. Since discharging a firearm in the city limits is a big no no I will be practicing my concealed draw and double taps in the back yard until my range re-opens.

    Where can you buy these air guns and how pricey are they?

    I think the MP 654-K is relatively easy to find. Try on any Internet navigator.
    See this:http://forums.gunboards.com/showthre...inally-arrived!
    The Brocock conversion is now forbidden: it was sold as "airsoft / deact" (in UK) but one could easily remove the converted barrel and replace it by the "firing" one. That's why all the Brocock's dissappeared.
