Default New to Me Type 54 Tokarev

I went to a gun show yesterday, and I walked out happy. I was also very happy there was barely anyone there. I walked in looking to sell my M44 (which I did), and after some searching I came across an older gentleman selling a number of C&R handguns. He had two Tokarevs that caught my eye, a Yugo M57 with holster, and another Tokarev that I couldn't identify right off the bat. He wanted $260 for the Yugo, a little high for me, and I asked to see the other Tokarev, he told me it was a Chinese variant. I asked how much and he said $125, the said it was "more of a junker than the Yugo" because the safety had came off and got lost. I didn't have a problem that because I know the safeties were put on them in order to be imported, and they were crappy safeties in the first place. I handed it back to him and told him I'd think about it. I finished looking at the rest of the tables, and went back to him and offered him $100, and we haggled and settled on $105. He also said the man he bought it from said it's a great shooter. I also picked up a new Korean made M1 Carbine magazine still in the paper and 15 rounds of Yugo 8mm on stripper clips for $20. A good show, and a good deal. What do y'all think about it? Can anyone tell me the year of manufacture? All feedback is appreciated! Thanks! Pictures to come!

The numbers are all matching except the magazine. The bore is very very good. The lockup is tight, and it's a solid gun. Should be a nice shooter.

I just broke it down and cleaned it and the bore is immaculate, shiny, bright, and perfect rifling. The barrel, hammer group, barrel bushing, slide, and frame all match, the magazine is the only nonmatching part.

I'd say you did good on the pistol. Very nice.

Thanks, I figured I did pretty good. I'm excited because this is my first Tokarev, and I've been wanting one for a while now
