Depends on the time period your thinking of. If it's pre-1930s, then the Nagant revolver would be the better match, if it was during the late 30s or WW2, then both would be a good match.
IIRC the Ruskies were switching over to the Tokarev during WW2, but since they still had a lot of Nagant revolvers, they issued them too. The Tokarev is next on my list of WW2 Russian guns. Followed by an SKS and a SVT-40
