The Makarov sear, located within the slide of the Makarov adjacent the hammer, is an unissued surplus sear.
The sear is one of the most vital components to the Makarov pistol and is of utmost importance during the firing sequence. As noted, its purpose is to hold the hammer back until enough pressure has been applied to the trigger, at which point the sear will release the hammer, allowing the firing sequence to progress.
The Makarov sear, 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.
