Romy vs. Yugo Tokarev
I see both for the same price. Is one better than the other?

Any inherent flaws with these pistols?

I THINK they're both about the same, quality-wise.

It's a good idea to use light ball in them.

Yugo holds 9 rounds
I have the Yugo. And it works great, after the cosmoline is all gone. I picked this over the CZ and Russian 8 round for the Yugo's 9 round cap. Not sure what the Romy holds.

i'm not sure about quality. both have the add-on safety, thanks to the batfe. i got the romy; from what i understand, yugo weaponry doesn't have chrome-plated bores...something about tito's tiff with the any rate, the romy's do. i prefered the extra corrosion resistance.


ignorance is fixable, stupidity is forever...

Outstanding handguns, I own the Romy's which eat anything I feed them, i've had issues with my CZ52 feeding bulgarian.

The Yugo as stated is 9 shot instead of the standard 8 shot, Magazines may be harder and pricer when you find them. As Budman stated, i don't think Yugo's are chrome lined so cleaning immediately after shooting will be necessary.

They are a great valve and a good firearm, get a few while they're still around.

Both are about the same but the Russian ones are the best if you can find them ..
