I've decided that a 7.62x25 Tokarev is a must for my collection. But, as I've noticed with all commie regime weapons there is a pretty large discrepancy in the build quality.
So here it is, who made the best one? Was it the Russians, Pols, Romanians, Yugos, or any other that I may have left out?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all.
I have a Norinco and a Romanian TTC, both of which are outstanding pistols.
Something you might not know is that if you can find a spare 9mm barrel, you can have two guns in one. Mine swapped using the same bushing, link and pin, and the swap takes no longer than a field strip. 9mm ammo loads fine from the x25 mags. Sarco had some 9mm barrels a few months ago, but probably dried up with the x25 ammo shortage.
I would rather have the Romanian than the Yugo because of availability of reasonably priced magazines. (they do not use the same mag) My Norinco has a better finish but a lousy after market safety. (I just removed it) The Romaian's safety is somewhat better, but still an after-market cheap add-on. I believe that the safety should be located between the ears anyway.
I do not know of anyone who owns a Tok that doesn't like it. Go get one.
If I didn't already have one, I would go for the $209.00 including hand select from J&G on the Romainan, and buy extra mags if they are available.
