I have been looking for one of these pistols, but thanks to the Klinton restrictions (still in place re: sporting use) I cannot locate any - even at gun shows.







MP-448 Skyph pistol

Type: Double Action
Calibers: 9x18 Makarov
Weight unloaded: 590 g
Length: 162 mm
Barrel length: 94 mm
Capacity: 12 rounds

The MP-448 'Skyph' pistol has been developed at Izhevsk Mechanical Plant (IzhMech, also known under the trademark "Baikal") during late 1990s, as an enhanced version of the famous Makarov PM pistol, which is also manufactured by IzhMash. The MP-448 'Skyph' pistol is offered for export sales and for local authorities.

The MP-448 'Skyph' pistol is a blowback operated, semiautomatic pistol with polymer frame. The double action trigger with external hammer and slide-mounted safety-decocker is similar in design to Makarov PM pistol. The disassembly procedure for MP-448, however, is different as the trigger guard is integral to the frame, and there's a separate disassembly lever at the left side of the frame, above the trigger. The magazine release is also different from PM, as it is made in the form of large rectangular button, located at the left side of the grip, next to trigger guard. Double-stack magazine has a polymer buttplate and contains twelve rounds of 9x18mm Makarov ammunition. The slide, while similar in design to PM pistol, has different shape and is not interchangeable with it. Sights are fixed, with the rear sight being dovetailed into the slide.

You could always buy a Hi-Cap .380 Makarov then switch the barrel out for a 9x18M barrel.
