Good question. I've always loved them too. I've seen some good deals on GunsAmerica lately, too. Seems like a decent little addition to anyone's arsenal for as little as they go for. If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for the little beast? Too, does he/she have a name yet?(I hope I'm not the only person around here that names their pistols.)

Typical soviet bloc war machine.

Butt ugly

Simple to operate and repair. Remember that the Soviet army had a high percentage of conscripts who could not speak or read ruski.

110 per cent reliable in any climate.

Cheap to manufacture.

It's main purpose was a symbol of rank, authority and discipline. It needed to be only lethal enough to shoot deserting soldiers to 'inspire' the rest of them.

Good value for a car or cabin gun.
