Default Polymer Framed Makarov - News To Me


Wow, had never heard this before. World's first polymer framed pistol? Glock right? No; though not a production model, the Russian TKB-023 "polymer framed Mak" was the world's first polymer framed pistol. Anyone else ever hear of this? Check out this link.

Yep, just a trials gun though. The PA- 63 was thought up the same way. Sad part is, the aluminum-allot frame has a life span. Good read. That is only the second time I have read something about it.
