About the Handgun:
The M88 is another Tokarev inspired design by Zastava. It is a slightly reduced-size version of their full size M70 model.
About the Manufacturer:
The Serbian state arms factory was created in the early 1900s with assistance from Fabrique Nationale. It has continued to function ever since, changing ownership with the political shifts of the area. Since 1989 it has had a stable presence in the English-language commercial market as 'Zastava Arms'. Today the company produces a complete range of hunting, sports and self-defense weapons. While mostly sold in the European markets, Zastava models have been sold in the US under the Charles Daly, and more recently, the European American Armory labels.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
