The Makarov pistol or PM (Russian: Пистолет Макарова, Pistolet Makarova, literally Makarov's Pistol) is a Russian semi-automatic pistol. Under the project leadership of Nikolay Fyodorovich Makarov, it became the Soviet Union's standard military side arm from 1951-1991. It is similar in design to the Walther PP.
The Makarov PM was seen in the fifth movie of the Die Hard seriesA Good Day to Die Hard. It was used by Jack McClane at the Russian nightclub when he takes from the kitchen and kills Anton, the associate of corrupt, well-connected Russian official Viktor Chagarin.
