Non-firing pistol replica of the Russian WWII Makarav; selected because of its simplicity, economy, easy manufacturing, and reasonable stopping power. It remained in service with the Soviet military and police until the end of the U.S.S.R. in 1991. The pistol resulted from a design competition replacing the Tokarev in 1951. Rather than building a pistol to an existing cartridge in the Soviet inventory, Nikolai Makarov utilized the “9mm Ultra” cartridge which had been designed by Carl Walther for the German Luftwaffe during WWII. As a result, Soviet ammunition was unusable in NATO firearms, so in the event of war, NATO forces would not be able to use ammunition from Soviet sources.
Durable black finish, handcrafted in Spain using quality metals. A working mechanism, but can not be made to fire real ammo. Excellent costume accessory or stage prop and a great conversation piece and unique decorator item. Still used for military, police, and homeland defense training.
