EDIT: I have to correct myself. The main inspiration must be Browning's model 1903 pistol. Put those two next to each other and it's like they are twins.
The absolute best source of 7.62x25 ammo is J & G Sales: http://www.jgsales.com/

They have the Romanian TTC Tokarev on sale for $199.95 and super cheap ammo!

I ordered a muzzle brake and a bunch of magazines for my Tokarev this evening... I have about 8000 rounds so I don't need ammo at the moment.

For a mere $30, you could obtain a C&R license. This not only enables you to get all kinds of bizarre guns cheaply, but you avoid shipping to an FFL, and have Fed Ex deliver it to your door.

Tokarev doesn't qualify for C&R...

Yes it does. It's over fifty years old. It doesn't have to be listed in the book to be C&R eligible. Box o' Truth verified it here.

I have the paperwork on it's way from BATF for the C & R license.

I'm going to go for the following handguns to start with:

Tokarev TT33 Pistol

CZ-52 Pistol

CZ-83 Pistol

Russian 1895 Nagant Revolver

These handguns are really cheap and with the amount that I would spend on a Kimber, I can have all of these guns, plus ammo, extra magazines, and a few other extras if I wanted.

Not a bad deal for having some very reliable, all steel, firearms.

The Nagant revolver is a great, fun little pistol. The only downside to it is ammo is a pain to find sometimes.

As I mentioned, the CZ-52 handles the 7.62x25 just fine, and is a slim, rugged and just plain fun gun to plink away with.

The CZ-82 is probably the king of C&Rs right now. Hi capacity, incredibly accurate, excellent for carry.

Use your license till it begs for mercy.

I received my Muzzle Brake for my Tokarev today, and this is what it looks like now...


Can't wait to shoot it!

Looks sweet, and in really good condition, too. What swayed your decision to add a compensator?
