This is the earliest production Soviet PM Makarov pistol that we have ever had in the office. This is a 1956 date code Makarov that is not import marked. As you might expect from such an early production example it does have a Soviet re-work cartouche indicating an arsenal refurbishment. Both magazines are electro pencil numbered to the pistol and it is rigged out with a very rare early synthetic coraform holster.
Finding an early date Makarov such as this is absolutely impossible and to be non import marked adds greatly to the allure of this piece. We don’t really have to say anything else, as soon as it is seen it will be gone.
