Yarygin PYa

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Yarygin PYa is a semi-automatic pistol developed by Izhmekh, chambered in the Russian version of the 9x19mm bullet. It is a double action, short recoil action pistol. Currently it is being used by some military units in the North Caucuses region, and is replacing the Makarov PM as the main sidearm of the Russian Ground Forces. The MP-443 Grach is the military version, the MP-446 Viking is the sporting derivative of it. The most distinct feature of it is its ability to use overpressure (+P+) armor-piercing rounds, such as the 7N21 and the 7N31.

An interesting note is that the MP in MP-443 (and other similarly-named pistols like MP-444) are Latin alphabets instead of Cyrillic, standing for "Mechanical Plant". Due to the rather unknown nature of this fact, multiple sources read the MP as Cyrillic and transliterated them into MR.
