Hello all, here is today's article posted on TheArmoryLife.com. It is titled "History of the East German Makarov" and can be found at https://www.thearmorylife.com/history-of-the-east-german-makarov/.
My theory on the sights was that I must have sweated too much while carrying it, I did carry it in summer for many years, and the sights shrunk.I had two East Germans and a Bulgarian, have one EG left. The East German was as mentioned much better finished. The EG is, in my hands, one of the most accurate pistols I have ever shot. One of my instructors even tried it after the class and went searching to find one.
I quickly replaced the thick rubber import grips with the original EG thinner grip and it handled much nicer.i have replaced the original sights, the originals were shrinking too fast.
My Bulgarian is nice but the Bulgarian Sneak ( a Russian military brought in through Bulgaria) is otherworldly, better even than my East German. All fun pieces!I have a Bulgarian and a Russian. The Russian is the nicer of the two but both are very accurate.
