    Black person it was designed for a specific purpose, and thus has been made with specific design choices. Such as underpowered cartridge, which is inadequate for militarily applications, but good enough for internal affairs at soviet times.

      Yeah so keep the general idea as a sidearm for officers but just upgrade it a bit. Make it lighter, or smaller or have more capacity or a more powerful round in the rare event that it is used

        NTA, but essentially…yes. Also recalcitrant Penal Battalion members who didn’t display sufficient Socialist Zeal in charging Wehrmacht machine guns.

        You will grant the the Red Army had more experience than any other Western nation in the peculiar needs of executing Gulagites and Wreckers after World War 2, right?

        And being in a Command Economy, the gunmakers had no other competing demands than those of the Red Army to bother with, (Communist Product Safety Commission bureaucrats, Gun-Banning politicians, Personal injury lawyers, insurance company representatives…all these had been adjudicated by Tokarevs and starvation), so they were at leisure to build EXACTLY and PRECISELY what the Red Army wanted.

        (Also, the damned Reds stole the entire Kraut Walther factory, and they had to figure out what to DO with it within their Soviet limitations).

        Yep. Good for close-range executions or maybe equipping some manner of undercover KGB glowies. If the owner dies, the anticitizen who took it isn't too hard to deal with for the response teams armed with automatic weapons. The state and its enforcers are basically free to do anything they want to their captive slave population with little fear of reprisals. That system has "worked" up to the present day more or less, we'll see how much longer it is before that system implodes on itself and Russia becomes like the Middle East.

              9x19 has 50 percent more pressure than 9x18 over the same bolt area. Thats 50% more force.
              How do you put such cartridge in gun designed for straight blowback?
              Yes, you will end up with really heavy slide, or really heavy recoil spring, or both.

                Or let's not be moronic using early 1900s tech and make it a gas delayed blowback in which case it's very possible to handle the pressure of 9mm, see: Laugo Alien

                There really isn't much benefit from a fixed barrel which is why most manufacturers don't bother engineering it that way, but it's certainly doable in any reasonable handgun caliber.

                What the gun really needs is a smaller bullet anyways. It's basically a simplified PPK, except instead of shooting .32 they went for a round that's a glorified .380 and somehow kicks worse than larger cartridges despite being less potent.
                They really should've just kept the damn Tokarev, I'm convinced the only reason the Makarov exists is because "Germany were so advance, so we copy their pistol and make less advance for dumdum conscriptovich" and "look, Europe is of use 9mm, so we make our own 9mm for the advance German space gun. Now we unstoppable and true power of world!" It's about the same reason why 5.45 exists.

                Even then they had to come up with better (less moronic) pistols to execute dissidents with such as the PSM

                To be fair it came about around the time the Russians were dipping really deep into moronation. Similar to now, but internal rather than external. They really should have stuck to paying the Belgians to make guns for them, but after they stiffed Leon Nagant over the Mosin then that ship sailed.

                Also, a makarovs slide isn't made out of fricking Zinc alloy like a hi-point so why would you ever think it needed to be a big as one?

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        A 9x19 Makarov prototype exists and the slide isn't frickhuge like the Hi Point's zinc slide. Zinc is lighter than steel so it has to be a chunker. That thing shouldn't be taken seriously or even discussed in weapons development.

        Since we're making it double stack, scale up a bit to full duty size. It needs to be competitive with the standard 18 rounders on the market so it's going to need some size anyway. Worry about compactifying it later, though one of the main things I like about the Mak is it's quite small so I'd only get the compact unless the fullsize had good enough performance. Btw the Laugo Alien is basically a straight blowback 9mm so it's not impossible.

    The only major thing I would change is the safety location. The slide safety makes it difficult to get a modern high grip on the pistol without interfering with the slide's movement, so I would change that to a frame mounted dewienerer only. Aside from that, I would only put better sights on it, chamber it in .380 ACP like the Russian export Makarovs, and try to clean up the DA trigger pull a little. But you can do as much as you want to a Makarov and it's never going to be a "competitive" option on the modern handgun market.

    Just the ticket for performing an execution of a Vatnik after a drumhead court martial for cowardice, or blowing the brains out of a political criminal when he or she fails to meet his daily quota of ore-bearing dirt tonnage delivered to the sluice.

    This, it is admirably suitable for use as a CCW EDC to help introduce Black person stick-up men and Hispanic rapists to the Lord Jesus, and “bullet therapy” to zonked-out addicts.

    And since the Pooh-Lee e are going to perform their sworn peacekeeping duty of confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens for the benefit of the LawyerKind that make up our government, the financial loss for the citizen-shooter isn’t so great a burden.

    Anyone that thinks the piece needs improvement is very likely Fake and Gay Tacticool Suburban Commandogay or a Communist converted by brain damage, HFCS, and Mainstream Media advertising into hopeless Consoomeriingism for the sake of Consooming.

          Is this an ESL thing? Upgrading and modernizing carries the implication that you retain the original item, while improving aspects of it.

When a military modernizes, they don't fire everyone, scrap everything and start from scratch.

    Make it smaller by making the slide out of a denser/ heavier alloy and using a heavier spring. Realistically the Mak's greatest strength is how much smaller and lighter it is compared to the TT-33 so reducing size and weight would be the most logical improvement for it. You could also go the neurotypical route of beefing it up for 9x19, widening the frame for double stack mags, attaching a rail, and maybe giving it an RMR cut but such an idea is immensely banal as well as homosexual

    Honestly they only things that need work are the mag release / capacity and the lack of an underbarrel attachment. Maybe you could put a tiny little red laser pointer under the barrel.
