Is there any way to covert a Walther PP Super from 9 x 18 Ultra to 9 x 18 Makarov? I love my Walther but the ammo is a little difficult to find and there is NO WAY I am going to try to shoot Mak. ammo out of it. :)

Any way?
Sure, but you would not like to pay for it. It would take a new barrel and maybe some work on the breech face.
Will Mak cartridges go in the magazine?

Surprisingly, yes, Mak cartridges will fit the PP Super magazine. But the case and bullet are too big for the existing barrel, so a new barrel would be needed.

Perhaps more important, only 4000 of the PP Super were made and collector interest has pushed the value up to around $500-600, where Makarovs are still common and less expensive. I would hang on to the Walther and buy a Mak for shooting.
