Makarov

 

The Pistolet Makarova, better known as the Makarov pistol, was originally designed in the early 1950s by a man named Nikolay Fyodorovich Makarov. In 1951, the pistol went into service alongside Soviet troops as the official side arm of the Soviet Union until its eventual dissolution in 1991.

 

The Makarov pistol is a compact pistol that utilizes a straight blowback action alongside a frame-fixed barrel and is chambered for the 9x18mm Makarov cartridge, which was developed especially for the Makarov and based on Carl Walther's design for the 9mm Ultra cartridge. Development of the Makarov was the result of a military-sponsored design competition that was instituted to field a replacement for the then-current issue TT-33 pistol and the Nagant M1895 revolver.

 

As noted, the Makarov was selected the winner of the competition in 1951, when it went into official service with the Soviet Union. It was chosen for a number of reasons, including its simplicity, stopping power, ease-of-manufacture and the fact that the 9x18mm Makarov cartridge was incompatible with NATO firearms. Today, the Makarov is one of the most popular firearms on the surplus market. And after making its way into the hands of over 30 foreign nations in some capacity, it has also come to rest in a number of concealed carry holsters right here in the United States.

 

There is no denying the popularity of the Makarov pistol. As such, we have decided to stock and sell an array of spare and replacement parts for the Makarov. Spare and replacement parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, which is exactly why we carry parts such as the Makarov trigger guard, the Makarov hammer spring, the Makarov trigger bar assembly and much more. Now is the time to take advantage of this massive offering. They will not last forever.
