I'd just hit a google search for Makarov holster, and find one that is actually molded for your gun, rather than buy a generic holster.

I am looking for just size specifics. I found some good holsters to use with my makarov. A generic iwb holster should be fine, as they are not made to be looked at, like a belt holster. I plan on getting a Normal belt holster for it later on for this fall.

I couldn't care less how they look. I care a lot about how they are for retention.

A model-specific, molded holster does a far better job of retaining and protecting the weapon.

Generic, one fits all type holsters don't function as well.

Do what you like.
