Gallery: KWA MKV Makarov
The Makarov a.k.a the PM (Pistolet Makarova) is a semi-automatic pistol design. Under the project leadership of Nikolay Fyodorovich Makarov, it became the Soviet Union’s standard military side arm from 1951-1991. The Makarov pistol resulted from a design competition for replacing the Tokarev TT-33 semi-automatic pistol and the Nagant M1895 revolver. KWA now faithfully reproduces this iconic Russian cold-war era military service pistol.
