A littel OT: old Margolin target pistol

Postby awo425 » Sat Mar 28, 2009 11:12 am

Ok, it is not a military weapon and it is still in production, but this one is pretty old and in real good shape too:



The .22lr variant with compensator is not often to be found, normaly the compensator as used on the .22short version MZU.
All the littel gimmicks in the box are there, spare parts, additional weights to clamp on the compensator, handrest, screwdriver and brass cleaning rod.
Pistol is all matching, even the spare magazine.

Tomorrow I will try it at the 25m range.

VOSTOK .22 I owned one like that back in the late 70's. A very good pistol for the price.

And you still have the photo, Duncan? Guess it was one the government made you turn in?

When I saw the first photo I couldn't help thinking that compensator was a silencer and that was some kind of assasin special.

I had one which I handed in and made a profit on it :D , I trashed it and handed in the 3 parts that you needed a license for, the remainder including the box and spares went to Norway to become the home of a Vostock there!
I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy!

My Margolin has british proofe marks, so it may well be one, that escaped the shredder on the island and made it's way to Germany, as many of the Enfields did.
I fired over 100 rounds(3 differant types of ammo) out of it on Sunday morning, only 3 holes in teh white at 25m, I fired sigle handed, both hands, slow and fast, this thing realy is good!!!

Too bad so many good guns were destroyed back than, and if we are unlucky here in Germany, it will happen here too:-(((((((((((

But till than I will enjoy shooting as much as I can, just bought a Vetterli M1878/81yesterday :loco:
