    Got this one off a guy at a gunshow 2 weeks ago about closing time. eveyone was packing up to leave when he walked by and I almost didn't stop him. But I still had too much $, so I had to see what he had.

    Guy said he had alreday sold 2 S&Ws, bummer. No one wanted the Mak for some reason. Only 2 bills. It was like new and had the adjusable rear sight. He said it was a German one. Looked much like a couple IJ-70s I had before and had to sell. Finally found another one. I tried a bill and a quarter. He came down to 160 one of my famous home made rubber band guns. He settled for 150 and the rubber band gun for his kid. Oh yeah, worked for me.

    Got to shoot some PMC FMJs throught it. Worked just fine.

    Hey fido,

    Dug around for info on it. Guy I got it from said it was German, but Baikal wss the importer of all the IJ-70s. They are a commercial Russian group that started with shotguns in 1962. The adjustable sighted Maks started coming into the U.S in the early 90s. So this one must be Russian. After looking closer at it, it was actually marked IZH-70, another variant I guess. This one is mostly for looking at or plinking.
