"I got my we Makarov in yesterday to accompany my real steel version. And so far I'm definitely liking it for the most part.
Externally- Almost everything on the airsoft is 1:1 with the real steel. The airsoft grip will fit the real steel, and it's actually slightly more comfortable! However the real grip would need a bit of filing to fit the airsoft versions but it's definitely doable. The barrels are made to spec of the real one, the real steel magazine, slide, and trigger guard all fit with the airsoft.
Cons? Not very many but there are a few. As somewhat expected with we the metal body doesn't seem to be that high of quality. Maybe time will prove me wrong, but it isn't the most impressive on first thoughts of it. the rear sight got a bit loose after just a few rounds of firing. Was remedied by a little loctite though and is no longer an issue. Also a small issue I found was that the outer barrel had a little more material on one side than the other. It's not enough to notice normally, but when you attach the suppressor you'll notice that it slightly points left. Maybe just my model, who knows. But an easy fix if you own a file. Lastly is the orange tip. It's very thin and fragile, and glued to the threads inside the barrel, which makes it a chore to remove. Tried using regular pliers and totally removed the visible part but left the plastic still inside the barrel. Was removed using a small pin point pick and was smooth sailing from there on. Also the nozzle could get caught in the barrel if you're not aware of it during disassembly.
Internally: pretty happy with it internally! Has a very loud report that I am very happy with! Without the barrel extension it chronos about 300fps on a .2 and probably 275-280 on a .25 gram, which makes it beautiful for up close and personal encounters as it's not gonna leave nasty welts on a target at less than 15 feet. The internals seem to be pretty quality for the fact it's we made. The hop up is also very effective and clicks into place with each movement. Also the safety is a functioning decocker which is faithful to the real steel. No leaks in the mag either which was pretty nice!
Cons- Have Only had two problems so far. One is a bit knit picky which is that the trigger and hammer can still function while on safety. I understand it's because locking up the trigger and hammer could cause breakage if you tried to fire while the gun was on safe since airsoft metals aren't as robust as those used in real firearms. Just a little something i noticed. The magazine doesn't hold a lot of gas, but it's enough to empty a mag and a few rounds all at once. Then again it is a small magazine so I didn't expect it to be an endless supply.
All in all, it's a sweet little shooter that I'm very pleased with. 8.5/10 stars
•very realistic and compatible with real steel.
•perfect fps for what it's made for
•internally quality is pretty middle of the road for a gbb of its price range.
•no magazine leaks
•hop up is effective
•needs a few minor mods out of the box
•gas capacity isn't the best
•orange tip is a pain
•nozzle can get damaged during disassembly if you're not cautious
Overall 8.5/10 stars "Just purchased this within the last week. Just opening the box and holding this, I can say that I was quite excited. It feels great in your hand and all the movements are crisp.
However, upon actually trying to shoot mine, I ran in to issues - it was incredibly hard to disassemble mine. After bulling down the trigger guard and removing the magazine to remove the slide, mine kept getting stuck on the loading nozzle. The slide, if I chose to keep trying to remove it, would have have to been forced. Not a good thing.
Another thing - my spare mag was leaking right out of the box. After semi-fixing that, I found that both magazines hold little to no air. I got 3 shots on both of my magazines before they were completely empty. I tried close to 10 times on each mag.
Last thing - if you plan to use the suppressor attachment that comes with this to cover the extended inner barrel, don't buy from Evike. How are you supposed to use the suppressor when Evike sends you a PMM that has an orange plastic tip securely glued to the threads where this suppressor attaches? False advertising if you ask me.
GOOD for the looks and the feel.
BAD for everything else. "Pros
- great feel
- extended barrel and mock suppressor are a great touch.
- reasonably accurate
- Mags are surprisingly able to hold enough gas for a mag and half worth of bbs.
- hop up (I think).
- terrible paint started to strip after less than ten mags being run through it.
- wobbly barrel (not terrible just annoying).
- hop u. Doesn't do much there is hop up on this gun rights on too of the barrel but it seems not to be very effective.
- mag lips are plastic this is not new for WE so just be careful.
Overall, most of the issues I have with this gun are not serious at all just me being a nit pick I would totally recommended this gun to someone interested as it offers a unique and affordable sidearm. Read More Reviews Write a Review

As one of Russia's most vetted pistols, the Makarov PM is a tried and true, currently manufactured sidearm that has seen over 65 years of service in some of the world's harshest climates. The PM was formed off of the Walther PP medium sized, frame-fixed barrel design for simplicity, economy, and stopping power, remaining in the front-lines of the Soviet military and police forces for decades. Throughout its history, the PM has undergone several re-designs, including the upgraded PMM model that features an ergonomic grip and increased magazine capacity over the original. Regarded as the almost "perfect" sized pistol, the Makarov PMM is a blend of effective concealment and reasonable firepower.
WE-Tech's Makarov PMM is a full metal framed, polymer ergonomic gripped gas blowback airsoft pistol with realistic disassembly and crisp action. Included with the package is a removable mock suppressor and inner barrel extension that offers improved accuracy and measurable power differences over the stock orientation. Trigger actions provide both single and dual action modes while the slide boasts the integrated safety switch. The lower grip mounted magazine release and lanyard attachment loop stays true to the real thing.
