    Thanks for the link. I have a Russian friend that recently bought one of these. I'm sure he will be interested in reading this.

    "The Makarov has a completly different type of firing pin design as compared to the German Walther PP, PPK, and PPK/S. The Makarov uses a free floating firing pin design and does "NOT" use a firing pin spring. The German Walther uses a completely different type of firing pin and it utilizes a typical coil firing pin spring. The Makarov has a uniquely triangular shaped firing pin that is totally free floating. If you were to carry your Makarov pistol with a bullet in the chamber, the free floating pin could move about 1/16 of an inch and its limited free travel is so slight there is no way I can ever forsee an accidental discharge with this design.

    I have had people call me many times being concerned about this design. I do not see a problem, being as conservative and as cautious as I am, I am not the least bit worried about this firing pin design. I do not see a problem. "

    Not sure I agree with all in the article. The firing pin design is known to be a weakness of this pistol, along with the safety, leading to accidental firings. I've learned to take Jacobson with a grain of salt. He know pistols, but tends to confuse opinion for fact. IMHO.

    Thanks for sharing though, the exchange of ideas is the key to growing in knowledge.
