For many soldiers a weapon is just something you have to carry around with little chance of ever actually having to use in anger. Thus a Makarov which fits nicely in a pocket is better than a full sized service pistol which needs a holster and weights alot more. British troops loved the Sterling SMG whilst on exercise because it was a lot easier to carry than a SLR but once the shooting started they tended to drop them pretty sharpish in favor of SLRs or M16s. I imagine the Russian experience is the same after all many tankers in Afghanistan found a way to cram AKSU into their tanks.
