Are rear sights on all Mak's standardized?

Post by gman68w » September 25th, 2018, 8:32 pm

I want to replace the rear sight on a p-83 with something I can actually pick up on. I just can't find any aftermarket stuff. I can find plenty though for the Bulgie's and Russian Makarovs. Are the dove notches on the P-83 the same size as the ones on the Maks? I mean, standardizing certain parts of pistols would be the smart thing to do, for quick field repairs and stuff, but I don't know how forward-thinking the Soviets were, considering.

I don't think so. But keep in mind that there was a Civilian export model that had brighter sights and a circular hammer that you may be able to find instead.

Nope, I got the military model. And unfortunately, searches for "P-83 civilian model replacement sights" don't turn up much.

I meant you could always get the full civilian model p-83. Then you'd have those brighter sights with no modification needed. Otherwise you might want to have a gunsmith check your current p-83 to see what if any modification needs to be done to install an aftermarket sight.

Or have you thought about using model paint or nail polish to just brighten the existing sights?
