Not Decocking !

I have a Russian Mak that I have yet to fire. Noticed today that the safety/decocking lever does not decock ! On "safe" you can't move the slide/trigger or hammer. Took it apart and looked at it. It's only one piece with no springs (except for the detent spring) as far as I can see. Is the only option a new safety ?

Simson Suhl

It may have the Simson-Suhl safety system installed. If the pistol is cocked and the hammer is back does the hammer fall when you decock the pistol?

If so then go the the www.makarov.com site and look up the Simson-Suhl safety.

That's the problem. The hammer does not fall when I de-cock the pistol. It did when I first got it about 2 months ago. It has a regular safety not the Simson Suhl.

New Safety

Took it to the gun shop yesterday. Swapped slides with a Bulgie and it would decock on my frame. My slide (and safety) would not decock on the Bulgie frame. Ordered a new safety from Makarov.com.

Problem solved - I hope ! :lol:
