For Glow in the dark paints, Have you gone on line and checked with ARTIST supply companies ?
If I get the chance I will check at some of my local Craft stores and see if I can get you a Manufactures name or distributor.
Most of these kind of things here in the US come in from China.

Thanks to Saif bro sights of my Mak have been adjusted for windage. Now its properly zeroed.
I must admit that it took a lot of hammering to get the sights to move. Ultimately Saif had to use steel hammer and tool with quite a force to move the sight a millimeter or two :). Bluing of sights and slide has been affected a little by all the hammering.
Thanks Again Saif. Now we have a local expert gunsmith among us :)

Results from 15m. We were quite tired by the time turn of Mak came for sight adjustment. Scores could be much better but it can be seen that windage error has been corrected.

No incident of accidental discharge of Mak / 442 has been reported on the net due to firing pin design. I am sure it is safe to carry it chambered and de cocked.
Now wait for expert opinion.

No bro, always keep safety activated, it does not have a firing pin safety.

Thanks for the advisory Saif.
Will it be true for all pistols without firing pin safety / Block ?

Shariq bro,
Personally if I would carry a weapon which does not have firing pin block, it would be with the trigger safety activated.

I would not prefer a decocker only gun without firing pin block, if I ever come across one. I cannot recall a modern decocker gun without FPB. Most weapons today have FPBs, and those that don't, have a trigger safety.

Maybe we should start a thread on different safety preferences on handguns, and shift all these posts to that thread.

Another great review, Shariq bro :text-bravo:

How do you compare MP442 with Taurus 709 and Rami?

If I may something... 709 is the smallest of them all. Very Slim and a real CCW. From my experience I found the 709 difficult to handle, because of the trigger (this is my candid opinion, I am not an expert just a beginner with average shooting skills). However, Shariq bhai has shown very good results with the 709. About the MP-442 and Rami, Shariq and KBW would be in a position to say something. But I do not know of a member here who has shot all three of them.

Ahem Ahem
Sir you know me by now :o

I have used them.
IMO 709 shouldn't be compared with Rami or 442. It is a pocket pistol. Other two or compact pistols.
442 and Rami both are excellent guns but in value for money department, 442 is superior. Its available for 42 to 44k compared to 130k for Rami.

Few days back I shot a friend's 709. Well, its a very small size pistol which can be easily concealed which is its biggest advantage. However, in shooting it is no match to a makarov or rami. Has quite a lousy trigger infact.

Viper bro, if concealed is the top priority for you, go for 709. But beware it would not be a pleasure shooting this gun as compared to Rami and Makarov.

Apologies dear, I never knew you had tried your hand on the Rami as well. So that makes you and KBW who have shot all three of them. :)

Chinese Makarovs are available in Pakistan but not NIB, as per my knowledge. You will be able to get a used one after some searching.
