    I got this E. Ger from Simson Suhl a couple of months ago. As you can see, it is about as perfect as they come. Click on the pic to see it larger.

    A fine gentleman, that Simson Suhl.

    Here is my somewhat worn 1984 Bulgarian, with tons of character. I will never sell it.

    The 9x18 crew:

    3 EG's ('61, '62, and '63), a Bulgy, a P64 and a CZ82. I've since sold the Bulgy and the CZ82.

    These are some very, very poor pictures of my "Silk Purse". Unfortunately, I failed to take any pictures of her while she was still a "Sow's Ear". 1991 Bulgarian. Reblueing by Fogle's Gunsmithing of West Mansfield, Ohio. Grips from Gustav and Dennis Marschalko of Budapest, Hungary.

    These are my Bulgarian Makarov. It's a 1981 I bought recently and I've only put about 25 rounds through it. They were taken outside on a cloudy day to try and stop the glare and flash reflection. In the second picture you can see that the "M" in Makarov is silver. It looks like it slipped or something when they engraved the import mark. In the first picture you can't see it but there is a small mark just opposite of the "M" but it doesn't penetrate the bluing like the "M" does. The lines are reflections of tree limbs...it really looks better in person. The tag on it was HG765-X and according to the information I've found the X means excellent. It really had a lot of cosmoline in it but not fully packed. I really don't know what to make of it but I bought it to shoot and CC. It came with a brown flap holster, lanyard, bakelite and black plastic grips, with two magazines & cleaning rod. Paid $300.

    I've ordered a grip from Gustav and Dennis - Zebrawood with a Red Finish, Thumb Rest and Finger whatever-ya-call-'em - the Brothers are now in the UK, I believe. the grip will go on my '63 Suhl E.G. (which has what I call a "black chrome" finish)

    Abuck, what are the name of those grips...wood, finish, etc...I like the pattern with no thumb rest...looks good for IWB.

    Does it have a left hand thumb rest? I don't see one with that pattern and no rest.

    Thumbs up

    I've got 5 or 6 MACs - 2 or 3 EG and a couple of chicom imports, but only photos of this one.
    This is the 1966 ruskie that I brought back from Viet Nam. I have never shot it and I doubt that it had been shot much from the condition. Its only flaw is that the mag does not match and is in ratty condition.
    2nd photo is the MAK and my other 2 VN bring backs. The HP was also brought back by me. I have trophy papers on all 3. Well, for some reason the single photo doesn't want to attach.

    Very nice reblue! Did they do the plum coloring on the safety and hammer, too?

    Are you sure that is Stainless? I have one just like it, a B-West import and it is Satin Nickel, not Stainless. Does yours say Stainless on the box?

    Here are a few of mine: Russian, Khyber Pass, East German and a Chinese ZZ all with no import marks. Also pictured is my main shooter, my 9x18 Bulgarian with a new compensator I need to try and a suppressor.

    EG Mak purchased from AIM in Ohio when they were $120.

    Funny story: FexEx driver mistakingly delivered this pistol to the Indiana State Prison that was on 500North. I lived on 600North. The prison called me and said there was a package there for me. I drove the 5 minutes and walked into the warden's office to be handed an open FedEx box. I was also expecting 2 boxes of S&B 9x18 ammo so I wasn't sure what was in the box until I stuck my hand in and felt the Makarov. I smiled. Nobody else in that office smiled. I said thanks and walked out.

    No, they're still in Budapest - or they were as of a week ago when I ordered a set of grips for my new Tokarev. For some reason, though, their e-mail address does look as if it is UK. Wherever they are, they do some d... fine work.

    Yes and no. He disassembled, cleaned, prepped, and blued all the parts in exactly the same way. From what he said, some steel takes bluing differently than does other steel. Something about the hardness, I guess. I know the entire slide on my Beretta Modello 1934 is plum, and it was factory original.

    Loren does some excellent work, and I would highly recommend him.

    My Makarov. Recently purchased at a local gun show. It was a rough one - lots of lost blueing, scratches, wear, etc. I cleaned it up and parkarized it with some Durabake and added Pearce grips. Shoots wonderfully!
