  Makarov och Stechkin pistolerna samt de nyaste.
Makarov anses ofta som en av världens bästa fickpistoler.
Makarov är en pistol helt i stål liksom Walther PP, med manuell säkring på manteln som låser slagstiftet och fäller ner hanen när vapnet säkras och pistolen är spänd.
Makarov och Walther PP skiljer emellertid sig en del på insidan genom olika typer av fjädrar mm.

  Pistol MAKARYCH :: Makarov Pistol History
Today Makarov is the only pistol in the world subjected to a “comprehensive conditions” factory testing where the gun is consecutively tested in a room having high concentration of airborne dust particles, then under simulated rain, then wiped dry and yet again tested in the dust-room.
Although Makarov PM was never particularly popular outside Russia, it has been adopted as standard military issue firearm in 12 countries, including former Soviet block nations, China and a number of developing countries.
In 1997, a larger-capacity version of Makarov along with an improved version of the cartridge with a higher muzzle velocity (designated as PBM 9x18 mm) were developed in an apparent attempt to improve the PM’s chances against targets protected by body armor.

  Metal Gear Solid: The Unofficial Site » Makarov PM
The Makarov PM was designed by Nikolai Makarov to replace the older, unreliable, and clunky TT-33 that had been the official sidearm of the Soviet military in years past.
Makarov decided to design the weapon to use this caliber instead of the already existing one because it was slightly more powerful than the existing caliber and was the most powerful caliber of ammunition that can be used with the Makarov's blowback design.
The Makarov remained the official sidearm of the Soviet armed forces until the collapse of the Soviet Union.

  Makarov PM - Definition, explanation
The Makarov was the result of a competition held to design a replacement for the aging Tokarev TT-33 semi-automatic pistol.
In the interests of simplicity and economy, the Makarov pistol was to be of straight blowback operation, and the 9 x 18 mm round was found to be the most powerful which could be fired safely from such a design.
The Russian and Chinese Makarovs are not thought of highly, except as nostalgic collectables of a bygone age, although they nonetheless possess the inherent simplicity and reliability of the Makarov design.

 Makarov PM Information
The Makarov PM is a semi-automatic pistol which was designed in the late 1940s by Russian firearms designer Nikolai Fyodorovich Makarov.
The Makarov is relatively heavy for its small size, another desirable attribute for a blowback pistol, as a heavy slide provides greater inertia against the force of the blast, reducing felt recoil or "kick" of the 9x18 mm round.
The Makarov's magazine release location is common with that of many European pistols, being located on the heel or "butt" of the handgrip.

Ersteres, weil sie immer noch ein Makarov ist, zum zweiten, weil die früheren Modelle an sehr vielen Kinderkrankheiten litten, die sich allerdings (wie bei allem, was in Russland gebaut wird) durch passendes Werkzeug und geschickte Hände beseitigen lassen.
Auch die PM nutzt das einfache Prinzip der Masseträgheit des Verschlusses - Nachdem der Schlagbolzen die Ladung gezündet hat wirken die Treibgase auf das Geschoss, ebenso wirken sie auch auf den Verschluss, da dieser aber schwerer ist als das Projektil benötigt er nach dem Trägheitsgesetz auch mehr Zeit zum Beschleunigen.
Auf Basis der PM wurde die "lautlose" PB (6P9) entwickelt, welche einen integrierten Zweikammer-Schalldämpfer besitzt.

 Makarov PM Did You Mean makarov?
Makarov PM The Makarov PM is a semi-automatic pistol, designed in the late 1940s by Russian firearms designer Nikolai Fyodorovich Makarov.
The TT had been loosely derived from the popular M1911 and was, by 1945, felt to be too large, heavy, and unreliable for a general service pistol.
The PM's standard magazine holds eight rounds, although ten- and twelve-round capacity magazines were developed later in the Makarov's service life.

It is designed primarily to use 9mm Makarov and 9mm Makarov Hi-Power ammunition (and that is the chambering used by the Interior Ministry), but by replacing the barrel, adjusting the headspace, and replacing the magazine, the Berdysh may fire 9mm Parabellum ammunition.
Notes: The Makarov is a modified Walther PP that appeared in the 1950s and has been the standard Russian sidearm until very recently.
The Baikal-442 differs from the Makarov in the adjustable rear sight, a slightly wider grip to allow a double-stack magazine (in the case of the 9mm Makarov version), a modified, squared-off trigger guard, a rail able to mount a laser target module, and ergonomic grip plates.
