    Default What year do you think this was manufactured?

    Hi folks,
    Picked this up today for a decent price. I had a Makarov 22 years ago and remember it was a very accurate piece.
    Wanted to get my son something to carry while backpacking.
    It's an IJ-70 so commercial Russian import, just no idea what year it would have been made. Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Default KBI IJ-70

    The manufacture date was in the manual, with the original paperwork, that came with the pistol in the box. If the slide and frame four digit s/n match, I can only offer my example to speculate on a production date of 1993. The longer s/n is the importer's reference s/n. The bottom stock file example is of an '94 Big Bear Arms imported IJ70-18A, with different frame markings.
