Russian Model PSM Semi Auto Pistol
inv # 18-3470
Sights: Fixed front and drift adjustable rear sight
Notes: Super scarce and highly desirable Russian PSM, designed in the early 1970s and made in the Izhevsk Arsenal, occasionally referenced as a KGB “assassination pistol” as early steel ammunition was said to penetrate bulletproof vests.
While we now know the intent was to provide high ranking officers with a less obtrusive pistol than the Makarov, the PSM remains as one of the Soviet’s most elusive and sought-after pistols
