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 series A 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.
