Default New!! For me anyway... Tokarev

I finally finished getting all the grease off of it. My new Soviet Tokarev TT33. Everything has matching serial numbers except the mag. Can't wait to try out this 7.62x25 ammo, heard a lot of good things about it. Lets see those Tokarev pictures! Anyone have any aftermarket stuff for these pistols?

Nice Pistol! I have never had one or fired one! But that is a great piece! What year was it manufactured!

That's a really nice pistol! I'd leave it stock, not that there is much after-market stuff it anyway.

Nice service pistol. Do you have any history on the gun? The trigger is interesting, love to hear your experience of shooting the gun for the first time

These are very interesting handguns. The 7.62 X 25 Ctg. copied from the .30 Mauser 7.63 X 25 which was chambered in the famous C 96 Broom Handles.
These pistols were copied from the Browning pistols. They do have a unique modular sear system easily removed and replaced. Back years ago when they were plentiful and very cheap I owned a number of them.
I converted them to different Ctgs. 9MMs and 38 Supers. I placed one in a muddy creek during snow run off. It was filled with sand and mud. I removed the gun from the creek poured the water from the barrel. I proceeded to run two magazines thru it without a FTF.

Just tried to fire the new pistol and the pin won't puncture the primer fully, any suggestions?

It is hitting but not enough all the time. It will fire eventually just don't want to wreck it if I continue to shoot it. Tried both surplus and new
