The Makarov Trigger Guard is a multiple function part of the famous Makarov pistol. Serving as both the trigger guard and also take down lever, this part is one that you want to ensure you have spares for.
Makarov Trigger Guard
The Makarov trigger guard, known to be a pain in the you-know-where to install, is located on the frame of the pistol underneath the barrel and adjacent the grip. It is secured via the trigger guard pin, which locks the trigger guard to the frame. Like all trigger guards, the Makarov trigger guard is a small iron loop. Its sole purpose is to protect the pistol from suffering an accidental discharge by making unintentional trigger pulls less likely. Surprisingly, the trigger guard also serves as a sort of takedown lever.
