MP-444 Bagira (MP - Mechanical Plant, "Bagira" - Bagheera, the black panther in Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book) is an experimental Russian pistol, designed on Izhmekh in early 1990s as a planned replacement for Makarov PM. MP-444 was one of the first Russian designs with plastic body. The pistol was tested in 1995, but it wasn't issued to any military or law enforcement agencies. Since any data about its production and use, misplaced or deliberately is not available in public access, this suggests that it was discontinued in favor of more promising projects, such as Yarygin PYa.
