It is hard to say which components of the Makarov pistol are most essential. But I can say with some certainty that the Makarov magazine is fairly important. And just as important as the magazine itself is the Makarov magazine floor plate.
Located at the base of the Makarov magazine, the Makarov magazine floor plate is a small steel plate designed to hold the follower spring in place. Similarly, the Makarov magazine floor plate prevents all interior components of the Makarov magazine, including the follower spring, follower and any cartridges, from spilling out.
The Makarov magazine floor plate, like all of our spare and replacement parts for the Makarov, are unused parts that were obtained from a spare parts inventory in Germany. All spare and replacement parts for the Makarov sold by Keepshooting.com are interchangeable in all Makarov pistols. These parts are not compatible with the Polish P-64 or the Hungarian PA-63.
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, especially all components that impact the firing sequence. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes immediately necessary – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.
It is also important to consider availability when discussing spare and replacement parts. At this time, Keepshooting.com is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of spare and replacement parts for the Makarov. Several brand new parts are now readily available on our website at an affordable price.
