The Russian Makarov PM was a symbol of the Soviet Union. Everything from the cartridge to the pistol design was an overhaul in the 50’s for a newer, more robust, easily maintained pistol with a safety. The straight blow-back action used the 9x18mm makarov cartridge, similar to the Walther PP in 9mm Kurz.
We’ve shot the PPK in 9mm Kurz in the past and it had horrible ergonomics, high recoil… and performed poorly on the course. What about the Soviet take on the direct-blowback action?
In true communist fashion, this pistol was manufactured by the Ernst Thälmann “Automobile and Hunting Weapons factory” in Suhl, East Germany. The DDR state-owned factory made two-wheeled vehicles, hunting rifles, air rifles, Makarov pistols and Kalashnikov rifles.

The hosts Henry and Josh started shooting from humble backgrounds, and families that had no foundation in the shooting sports or firearms. Through their journey in shooting sports, they have both developed extremely different backgrounds that compliment each other with perspectives in historical firearms development, employment, rifle performance, munitions development, firearms manipulation, and publications.
The show aims to create a comprehensive brief of information that helps researchers, consumers, government entities and enthusiasts in their quest for beneficial information, no matter what answers they seek.
