History of Arsenal Bulgaria

The company's history can be traced back to 1878 with the first armory in the country - the Ruse Artillery Arsenal. Due to strategic concerns it was relocated in Sofia in 1891. After the nation's defeat in the Second Balkan War and World War I, in 1924 the company and all of its equipment were relocated in Kazanlak, a town situated in central Bulgaria. The armory was given the name Darzhavna voenna fabrika ("State Military Factory").

Initially producing only artillery gun components and ammunition, the factory later began to manufacture gas masks (1920s), nitroglycerin (1930s), machine tools (1940s) and finally assault rifles, optic sights and B-10 recoilless rifles(1950s). The first assault rifle, a direct copy of the Soviet AK-47, was produced in 1958. By the 1960s a total of seven factories were under the company's jurisdiction. Until the Fall of Communism in 1989-1990, the company was named Mashinostroitelen kombinat Fridrikh Engels ("Friedrich Engels Machinery Works") to conceal its activities as a military enterprise. As part of this strategy it adopted the manufacture of various civilian products, including automobiles such as the then-popular Bulgarrenault-8. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Arsenal began cooperation with companies from Japan, Sweden, Ukraine and Germany.

Currently Arsenal AD is a private company conducting international arms trade, although it also expands its civilian exports, now including high-precision metalworking machinery, mobile robot manipulators and synthetic diamonds.

    Good looking gun

    Received mine today. Was hoping for an 80s one like the other review below, but got one from the late 2000s. Gun looks fine though and am looking forward to taking it out

    Very High quality

    So first things first, it is a real Bulgarian Arsenal makarov and mine wasn't a late 2000s model it was made in 1985 which is awesome. They were imported by global ordnance so they have their import marks on it through Sarasota Florida but they are very small and discrete under the slide which was really cool of them to do. I thought I wouldn't like the parkerized coating as much as the blued but man its nice like really nice and feels good, I'm just really excited to own brand new makarov, even the barrel is polished inside and its just really cool to know that its been sitting in a box untouched since 1985. The only thing I don't like about the gun is the grips are the import grips but they are really high quality and I did find an original bakelite grip on ebay for cheap. The holster is good for storage but I would not carry or use it in that, its high quality real leather but having to use a pull tab to raise the pistol up so you can draw is inconvenient, I don't really care for the lanyard but I am happy that they included both it and the holster, If you calculate the price of everything your getting then the gun is a really fair price and is cheaper than any used makarov you can find. The European style mag release sounds inconvenient but after a few tries its a breeze to quick change mags. This is going to be an excellent carry gun and I am extremely happy with my purchase. The only reason I'm giving it 4 Stars is because I'm frustrated that not even a week after I bought it they added a deal were you get 100 rounds completely free and its really frustrating, especially after I just paid for 100 rounds, it's like a kick in the groin.

    ARSENAL MAKAROV

    Well packaged pistol when cleaned of the preserving oil revealed a great parkerizing job and a Makarov of greater quality that the Russians ever produced. Excellent value.
