The Century Zastava M88 is an interesting little pistol, with a short-lived history as a military sidearm. It’s a derivative of the Russian Tokarev pistol design, which itself drew a great deal from Colt< and Browning designs of its day. But it’s a modern handgun designed in 1987 and chambered in 9mm. As in, Parabellum, not Makarov.
The pistol intended to replace the aging Tokarevs issued to the Yugoslavian police but was quickly replaced by the Zastava CZ 99, which gets a story of its own another day. But it continued to see manufacture due to its popularity in Europe as a slender, compact and comfortable single-stack 9mm.
