How can you say they are ugly? To me they look like early 1900s colt automatics.

I'm weird, and warming up to automatics of that country.

If you can spare about $179 give the Tokarev a try. It's reliable and slim enough for proficent pocket carry. Plus a pretty pontant round as well. Like a .357 Sig on crack.

Look carefully at the bore to make sure it hasn't pitted and make sure the sights aren't grounded down or anything. My sights were off so I had to sand it down to match. And for the love of god don't buy Bulgarian ammo.

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

Alright. Whenever my wife lets up on me, AR is first. I might be able to sneak that pistol in there.

Ha! Good luck. Let me know if you want any more pictures or angles of the gun if you are curious about it.
