I've been thinking of buying a relatively cheap semi for plinking. Can someone please help me by answering a few questions. 1 Reading over the previous threads it sounds like an East German mak is the way to go. Is there a particular country or time frame (of manufacture) I should avoid? 2 What kind of prices should I expect? New? Used? 3 What kind of accuracy can I expect? 4 How mechanically reliable is the pistol? Well that's enough questions for now. thanks to all for the input.
