Target Shooting Pistol, also MCM Standard Small-bore Pistol ) is a .22 LR
pistol primarily used for competitive target shooting in 25m Standard Pistol
class under the rules of the International Shooting Sport Federation
round-target shooting at 25 m. The Margolin has been used since the 1950s, and complies with all international competition standards.
The MCM was designed by Mikhail Margolin in 1948 and made its international debut at the 36th World Championships
held in 1954 at Caracas
A very accurate, reliable and economically priced pistol of functional and simple design. The designer himself was totally blind, which might have an influence on the design. The most criticised characteristic - the elevation of the plane of sight - could thus also be explained: The designer could not aim his pistol.
The barrel, being comparatively light-weight, can be equipped with an under barrel weight for added steadyness.
A more concealable version of the pistol, Margo
is available for a less formal target shooting
applications. The barrel is shortened and original sights are simplified in this version.
