No reason. The Muzzle Brake was available so I bought it. I have never seen a Tok with a brake on it so I figured I needed to be the first kid on the block to have one.

Let us know if there's any noticeable reduction in muzzle climb or any changes in bullet performance.

Looks pretty.

I'll put a couple hundred rounds through it Monday. I liked the brake enough to re-blue the Tok to match the color of the brake a little better.

Alright I got a question on the grips. Are they "press-fitted" on or something? I can't see from your picture, Mark F, where the screws/rivets may be.

I'm not too familiar with the Tokarev design so I'm just curious. If I get a Tokarev the first thing that will go will be the commie grips for something different and possibly more ergonomic.

I'm surprized anyone noticed my home-made grips...THANKS! They are made out of Red Oak and held on with double-sided fiberglass carpet tape. I made these grips about ten years ago and they have held up well. These grips are a lot thicker than the original grips so theTokarev fits my hand better.

I have had this Tokarev for about 30 years give or take a year or two. It has never failed me. I carried it in my in my truck for many years and I've probably shot 10,000 rounds through it. There were times I didn't clean it for years on end and it would shoot every single time. I bought it used from an old friend for $50.00.

I have a couple more questions.

How much did the compensator cost you, and where did you order it from?

Where can you order aftermarket-type grips for the Tokarev?

Thanks. Let me know how it shoots. I may buy one if I get around to getting a Tokarev.

I finally got around to reading the Box O' Truth on the TT33. Interesting. The only thing is, the disassembly method he used is not the way I disassemble this pistol. His method is much more difficult than mine. I simply pull my locking pin and let the slide go forward, thus releasing the whole topend. My method is easier for reassembly too.
