Mfg Item #: VZ-61-107P
The 9MM Makarov Sa vz. 61 Pistol is the semi-automatic version of the original 7.65mm Browning caliber Sa vz. 61 submachine gun. The original Sa vz. 61 submachine gun (machine pistol) was designed in the late 1950´s in Czechoslovakia and was intended for use with reconnaissance units, tank crews, Special Forces, and for security forces of the Ministry of Interior. The vz. 61 was developed to fulfill a specific need: a firearm that could be worn like a pistol (in a holster) and capable of full automatic fire. The 9MM Makarov vz. 61 Pistols utilize polycarbonate for the magazine body - specifically TARFLON IR2500. This is an extremely tough material that is impact and wear resistant. It is the same material used in 5.56x45 mm vz. 58 magazines. Two magazines are included with the pistol - both the 2nd generation waffle type pattern (as shown in the photos). The design of the Sa vz. 61 submachine gun was unique in its time. It uses the following common operational features found on a submachine gun: an unlocked bolt, magazine inserted into the bottom of the receiver (outside of the pistol grip) and a folding stock. These common features are combined with the following characteristics not usually found in submachine guns: extraordinary small size, fires from a closed bolt, and uses a rate reducer to slow full automatic fire.
