In late 2005, a Russian mineral exploration company discovered a series of large oilfields in southern Sudan. Sudan’s Military government, with its ability to hold the newly revitalised Sudanese People’s Liberation Army at bay beginning to falter, decided this new source of oil was its one sure-fire way to hold onto power.

Description

Caliber: 9x19 mm 7N21 (9mm Luger/Para)
Weight unloaded: 950 g (with empty magazine)
Length: 198 mm
Barrel length: 112 mm

The PYa (Pistolet Yarygina - Yarygin pistol) was
developed for the Russian Army trials, codenamed
"Grach" (rook). These trials were
started by issuing initial requirements for a new
military pistol in 1993. Than new pistol should
had have a DA trigger, large capacity magazine,
all steel construction and be able to be converted
into 9x18 PM and PMM, 9x19mm Luger, and 7.62x25mm
TT chamberings. Later on, the multicaliber option
was dropped from military requirements, and in the
late 1990s Russian army settled on the improved
version of the worlds' most popular 9mm
Luger/Parabellum round, very hot loaded (peak
pressure generated by 7N21 is well beyond 9mm +P
standards) and fitted with armour piercing bullet
with hardened steel core. Several designs were
submitted to the trials, but eventual winner was
the pistol, designed at the state Izhevsk
Mechanical Plant by the Vladimir Yarygin. This
pistol, initially known as the 6P35 (military
index during trials) or as MP-443
"Grach" (manufacturer's
designation), now is officially adopted by the
Russian Government for Military and Law
Enforcement use under the PYa designation, and
already issued to some Russian Army units, most
probably located in Chechnya.
