PM/PMM (Pistolet' Makarov)
(Pistolet Makarov Modified)
The Makarov is a handgun developed in 1947 for the new 9x18mm Makarov cartridge. Loosely based on the German Walther PPK, The Soviet Union adopted this pistol for their military to replace the Tokerov Pistols after World War II. Practically all Soviet-Bloc countries were issued the Makarov pistol. The Russia recently replaced the Makarov with the Yarygin PYa.
The Makarov pistol is considered the most affordable reliable handgun at about $180. Though Russia does not manufacture Makarovs anymore, they are still produced in Bulgaria. The 9x18mm cartridge is shorter than the more common 9mm Parabellum (9x19mm Luger) found in the United States. Though some 9mm Parabellum cartrides have been cutshort and used in Makarovs (not recommended), a true 9mm Makarov bullet is closer to 9.2mm than 9mm.
9mm Makarov travels aproximately 1050fps up to 1200
9mm Parabellum travels aproximately 1135fps up to 1300
161mm Length (from grip to barrel)
