    The Mak is usually found with a 9x18mm barrel. The military and police surplus guns will most likely be 9x18mm, while some commercial guns were produced in .380 (9mm Kurz), also known a 9x17mm.

    It can be difficult to find 9x18mm in local gun stores, and you can forget about Wal-Mart type stores having it. Mail/Internet orders are the best way to get 9x18mm ammo. Do not shoot .380 in a 9x18mm barrel; it is unsafe - the case may rupture.

    If the ammo is loaded longer than standard for Over All Length, there can be feeding problems, that can usually be cured by working on the lower edge of the feed ramp. The standard bullet weight is 95 grains, and most rounds of that weight will feed reliably. Heavier bullet weights may cause problems in guns that have not had feed ramp work.

    Visit the Makarov.com web site for information, spare parts, and general help when you have questions.
