The Makarov firing pin, which is located within the rear of the slide of the Makarov and adjacent the hammer, is an unissued surplus firing pin. It is secured via the Makarov safety.
In any pistol that utilizes a hammer as opposed to a striker-firing system, the firing pin is one of the most vital components. The firing pin is responsible for striking the cartridge primer, thus completing the firing sequence. This is achieved after the trigger is pulled, which acts on the sear and releases a spring-loaded hammer. The hammer then falls on the firing pin, which allows it to strike the primer. As noted, the Makarov firing pin is a free-floating firing pin. Despite its simplicity, it is absolutely necessary for the proper function of the Makarov pistol.
The Makarov firing pin, like all of our spare and replacement parts for the Makarov, are unused parts that were obtained from a spare parts inventory in Germany.

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.
