I have a 'War Trophy' Russian Issue TT33 Tok. I have not fired it for about 5 years...no reason, just have other guns of more interest to me. It is a solid handgun, with a great History that remains undiscovered for the time from 1940 (production date in the USSR) TO -1962 (when I got it in Bien Hoa, RVN)

Yes. Tokarev ammo is becoming readily available. Sort of like the Makarov 9 x 18 when Maks were first imported. The Tokarev is referred to as the "Russian Browning" or the "Soviet Bloc 1911". Very interesting firearm. And with increasing popularity amongst shooters, war buffs, and collectors, the web is full of historical and contemporary info about this famous battle-pistol

I am a big Tokarev fan...here is my current production Zastava M57A, with it's Kragujevic proof house certificate:


Surplus Tok ammo has been drying up. It used to be very cheap. I still have a sealed spam can of Romanian ammo I'm saving for a rainy day.

Ammo availability (or lack there of) is the only reason I don't have one.

I've seen new ones in 9mm somewhere but trying not to do the 9mm thing.

Kind of makes me wonder if I could build a company around making brass for the non-American, abandoned (e.g. 327 Mag) and wild cat loads?

I've always been interested in the Tokarevs and Maks. They're neat firearms. I haven't seen any decently nice ones locally for a decent price. I like their style though. It's a neat caliber.

I have 4x 7.62x25s. An original TT-30, TT-33. Polish TTC and a CZ-52. All of them are great guns and a very powerful round.

The Yugoslavian M57 "Tok" I have pictured to start this thread is original condition surplus from the Baltic Wars, and as good as you'll find. Other than some handling wear it's excellent .Try GubBroker or GunsInternational.

I have been looking at them for a long time now but just other things higher on the list so I have yet to pull the trigger.
