The Pistolet Makarova (Makarov' Pistol, named 'PMm' in-game) is a Soviet made semi-automatic pistol featured in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.

General characteristics

The Makarov is the standard issue sidearm for the Military and rookie Duty members, and it is widely used by rookie Loners, Bandits and Renegades. The weapon is exceptionally light and durable, but lacks considerable stopping power and is not very accurate.

Appearances

Shadow of Chernobyl

Characteristics

The PM is reliable and very light. It is moderately effective against unarmored foes, but it is not in any way ideal for combat and you'll want to swap it out for a Fort-12 or some 9x19mm FMJ pistol the first chance you get. The weapon uses the 9x18mm FMJ .

Notable deployments

This weapon is often used by Rookie Loner stalkers and bandits located in Cordon, Garbage and Dark Valley.

Acquiring the weapon

Wolf gives you one at the beginning of the game, along with some spare ammunition. Otherwise it can be found almost anywhere in the Zone, as it is commonly carried by Loners, Bandits, Zombified Stalkers, and rookies of many factions.

Clear Sky

Characteristics

The PM is now reasonably powerful and can rival the performance of some 9x19mm pistols, as it's cheap to maintain and most upgrades cost less than 200 rubles, making it more useful later in the game than in Shadow of Chernobyl.

Acquiring the weapon

The PM is given by Docent Suslov along with some other equipment. The weapon is bought from every trader of all factions and held by rookie loners, bandits, Clear Sky members, military soldiers and Duty stalkers. Overall the weapon is pretty widespread and it's very easy to acquire one.

Its grip is also changed from Shadow of Chernobyl, now its grip has a wooden finish while in Shadow of Chernobyl its grip is made of carbon.

Call of Pripyat

The player's starting weapon is a unique PM, the "Ceremonial Makarov".

Behind the Scenes

Origin, design and depiction

Designed to replace the aging Soviet Tulsky Tokarev TT-33, the Makarov used a new cartridge: the 9x18mm (in fact 9.25x18mm) cartridge. Under the project leadership of Nikolay Fyodorovich Makarov, it became the Soviet Union's standard military sidearm from 1951-1991. The Makarov is a popular self-defense pistol because of its simplicity, economy, ease of manufacture, light weight and reasonable stopping power. PMm is a PM, not the PMM (Pistolet Makarova (Makarova-Shigapova) Modernizirovanny).
