Type: BB Pistol
Manufacturer:
KWC
Model: Makarov PM
Materials: Metal with ABS plastic grips
Weight: 737 g (1.6 lbs)
Barrel: 76.2 mm (3 in), smoothbore
Power Source: 12 g CO2 x 1
Action: Semi-Automatic, single-action only
Ammo Type: 4.5 mm steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 15 rounds
FPS: 303

Trigger Pull: Really nice. It is single-action only since it requires racking the slide to chamber the first round. The take-up is slight with a crisp light release. The trigger is definitely not going to get in the way of the accuracy of this pistol.

Accuracy: I found the pistol shot low at 30 feet, about 4 inches low. There is a preset built-in hop-up system that gives the BB backspin. The backspin will give the BB a bit of lift as it travels, so at longer ranges the BB may make up some of the distance. There were a few stragglers that shot a bit low, making the grouping just over 2 inches. There was a clearly defined tighter sub group that was about 1.75 inches in diameter. Overall, shot placement was low but pretty good side to side.

Build Quality: Excellent. The pistol is well built like the other full blowback KWC BB and airsoft pistols I have reviewed and shot in the past. The fit and finish is very good but I expect the electromagnetic black coating to wear off in the high spots fairly quickly. This does give the slight worn-in real gun look, however. In terms of quality, KWC may have even beefed up some of the areas prone to breakage like the trigger guard since this pistol is made out of Zink-based metals rather than the hardened steel in the real firearm.

Realism: I have to say the KWC Makarov PM CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a really nice replica overall. It is perhaps one of the best considering it has full cycle blowback with an all metal full sized drop out magazine. A couple of drawbacks with the pistol that are different from the real steel Makarov PM are the thicker trigger guard and butt plate.

Pros:

  • Full cycle blowback operation
  • Nice heavy blowback spring makes slide nice and snappy
  • Full metal build
  • All metal full size drop out magazine that holds the BBs and CO2
  • Fully field strippable
  • All parts function like a real Makarov
  • Open ejection port and reassessed barrel
  • No ugly CO2 tab
  • Crisp and light single-action trigger
  • Internal fixed hop-up for improved accuracy and sustained trajectory

Cons:

  • Lower FPS due to short barrel and blowback operation
  • Magazine base is thicker and sticks out forward more than a real steel Makarov
  • Trigger guard looks to be thicker than on actual gun

Comments: The Makarov is one of my favorite pistols, a true classic! So the fact that there is yet another Makarov air pistol on the market is fine with me. This particular one might just be the best all-around Makarov airgun that hits all the spots us Replica Airgun enthusiasts loveā€”like full blowback operation, a nice light single-action trigger, a full size metal magazine that holds the ammo and the CO2 and an all metal build with all those working bits and pieces like you would find on the real steel Makarov PM. I would have to say the KWC Makarov PM CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is one of my favourite overall Makarov airgun replicas since it pretty much has everything going for it.

This Video review focuses on the shooting performance of the KWC Makarov PM BB Pistol. I test it out to see what kind of velocity it can achieve and I also perform an accuracy test to see what kind of grouping I can get from 30 feet back on a paper target.
