PM Makarov

Notes: The Makarov is a modified Walther PP that appeared in the 1950s and has been the standard Russian sidearm until very recently. As the ammunition is larger than the PP, but the pistol itself is not much larger, the grip is big and the Makarov can be a bit awkward to hold.

The PMM is an updated Makarov used by some Russian forces, originally known as the Grach-3 (the project to replace the Makarov was known by the code name of "Grach.") Though the PMM was ultimately not chosen as the Makarov replacement, it was the first one ready, and was therefore placed into production and widely issued as an "interim replacement." It is strengthened to use the 9mm Makarov High Impulse round used by the Bison submachinegun; the PMM-12's grip is wider to use a staggered-row box magazine. The chamber is also modified to accommodate the Hi-Impulse ammunition. (It should be noted that the firing of 9mm Makarov Hi-Impulse ammunition out of a weapon not designed for it is extremely dangerous; this is especially true of the standard Makarov!) The PMM may still fire standard 9mm Makarov ammunition. Beginning in the mid-1990s, some polymer-framed versions of the PMM-12 were also produced, primarily for the export market.

The PB is a heavily-modified PM Makarov originally produced in 1967 for certain Spetsnaz units. The is equipped with an integral two-part suppressor which is very effective for noise suppression. The PB is designed to be used with standard Makarov ammunition, with the suppressor slowing the round to subsonic velocities. The front part of the suppressed barrel can be removed to fit into its special holster or a pocket; the PB can even be fired without the front of its suppressor, though noise suppression is almost nil without it. (The front part of the suppressor weighs 0.16 kg.) The slide had to be considerably shortened to accommodate the suppressor, and as a result, the recoil spring was relocated to the right side under a panel. The recoil spring is then connected to the slide by a long, swinging arm. The PB is believed to still be in production.

A variation on the PMM is the OTs-35; it is essentially identical to a standard PMM, except for the addition of a rather large muzzle brake at the end of the muzzle. This makes the OTs-35 more manageable during firefights where many rapid shots are made. It is a much rarer commodity than the standard PMM, but available in small numbers.

Some Makarovs have been converted to fire .380 ACP ammunition (ballistically quite similar to the 9mm Makarov round) and sold on the international surplus market.

A newer version of the Makarov, the Baikal-442, was designed primarily for export. The Baikal-442 differs from the Makarov in the adjustable rear sight, a slightly wider grip to allow a double-stack magazine (in the case of the 9mm Makarov version), a modified, squared-off trigger guard, a rail able to mount a laser target module, and ergonomic grip plates. The 9mm Makarov version uses standard PM, PMM-8, or PMM-12 magazines, or a 10-round magazine meant primarily for export. The 9mm Parabellum version uses a modified PM magazine.

The IZH-70 is a commercial variant of the Makarov, chambered for three rounds, and available with either fixed or adjustable sights. Improvements have also been made to make the IZH-70 more reliable than the PM Makarov.

Another commercial variant of the Makarov is the IZH-71. Standard versions of the IZH-71 use an 8-round magazine, but a variant has a longer grip for a 10-round magazine, and a further variant has a wider grip for a 12-round double-stack magazine. Magazines are not interchangeable between the three versions. The IZH-71H is designed for by private security forces; it differs primarily in having a rail under the dust cover for tactical lights or laser aiming modules.

The MR-448 Skyph is an updated PM; it features a polymer frame, ergonomic grips and controls, and an extra chambering (mainly to make it more attractive to the export market). The Mini-Skyph is just what it sounds like - a compact version of the Skyph; it is chambered only in .380 ACP.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The PMM is a rare weapon in the Twilight 2000 World. The .380 ACP version does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline, nor does the IZH-70 in any form; the MR-448 Skyph and Mini-Skyph also do not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline. Though also rare, many Russian soldiers preferred the Baikal-442 when they could get it, due to the adjustable rear sight. The 9mm Makarov version of the IZH-70 is very rare, and the other chamberings do not exist.

Merc 2000 Notes: Though not as rare as in the Twilight 2000 World, the PMM is still an uncommon weapon in the Merc 2000 World.
