The Makarov Sear Spring is one of the important parts of the Makarov pistol, ensuring that the sear keeps the hammer back until the trigger is pulled. Frequent use and age cause the sear spring to lose tension, requiring it to be replaced. With Makarov pistols no longer being made, an investment in this Makarov sear spring will ensure your prized Makarov pistol is functional for years to come.
Makarov Sear Spring
The Makarov sear spring, located within the slide of the Makarov adjacent the sear and the slide stop, is an unissued surplus sear spring.
As the sear is a very important component of the Makarov, responsible for holding the hammer back until enough pressure is applied to the trigger, it only makes sense that the sear spring is almost equally important. The purpose of the Makarov sear spring is to hold the sear under spring tension, forcing it into the hammer notches that keep the hammer held back until an appropriate amount of pressure has been applied to the trigger. And just as several other components of the Makarov serve multiple purposes, so too does the sear spring, which also serves as a spring for the slide stop.
