Gentlemen,

I'm sure some of you carrying Soviet surplus Makarovs have figured out what other standard models fit the same holsters. Can I fit mine in a holster made for a Walther PP? PPK? Beretta Cougar? What?

I'm looking for a good fit, but few of the manufacturers list what a Mak will fit in. Thanks for your help.

I use a Don Hume IWB holster for my Russian when I use it for a summer ccw, not sure what model it was intended for, I found it in a bargin bin for $10 if I remember correctly....

Uncle Mike's Sidekick Size 1 or the Fobus MAK 1. I also have the original holster somewhere. Let me know if you want it and we can make a deal.

The Falco IWB is a great holster but makarov.com doesn't seem to have any in stock right now.

I can't vouch for the shoulder holster but the IWB is great: sturdy leather that doesn't swim around on the belt.

Don Hume's JIT Slide works for my Mak.

Just ordered one for my dad for Christmas.
Looks like a nice unit for $70.

I use a Don Hume IWB. It works well, but I prefer a canted holster.

'm sure some of you carrying Soviet surplus Makarovs have figured out what other standard models fit the same holsters.

Should be no need to cross-match. There's lots of options now for holsters made specifically for the Makarov.

The Falco IWB is a great holster but makarov.com doesn't seem to have any in stock right now.


And my understanding is that they won't be getting any more.

Falco has stopped importing holsters into the USA. Below is our remaining inventory. Once gone these will no longer be available. We recommend that if you've ever considered a Falco Holster, do it now, it is your last chance.

All they have left are shoulder holsters (http://www.makarov.com/cart/vitemfalco.htm).
