Tokarev TT 33
 
Hello all I am just starting to get into C&R and want to get a Tokarev pistol. Unfortunately there is not a lot of information on the web when it comes to the pros and cons of the various makes of them. There is a local gun shop with two Tokarevs. One is labeled as Romanian for $300+, and a Russian for $300+ (1953), I didn't know if these were considered a good price and if they are shootable. I checked the barrels on both and the rifling is pretty good in both without any frosting. After all that babble what I am looking for is how to identify a Yugo, Russian, Polish...etc apart from each other to make sure I am getting what I pay for and if those prices are good prices. Mind you I intend on shooting the one I get. Thanks it is greatly appreciated!

Anch, you got PM.

to be honest that is the next gun on my list to get and I can't even tell you really much about them. All I can really say is that if your ok with the price, the barrel and other important parts of the look good and everything moves good on it I would go for it. I just spent like a half hour going through the internet looking for info and I can't really find anything on price wise sorry,

Got one about 6 months ago at a gun show for $225 (Polish version). Decent shape, but certainly not like new.

Since then I've noticed that most I see are in the $300 range. I think we're seeing the inflation on guns and you may be seeing the $300 as a standard price now.

Fun gun to shoot and the ammo is still really cheap, if you don't mind careful cleaning right after shooting.

I got my Tokarev for $99 (new)many years ago, Ammo is cheap its fun to shoot.
You can get cheap ammo at the Sportsmansguide.com (about 7 cents a round) I also shoot the 7.62 Tokarev ammo in my 7.62X 54 Russian long gun. I got an insert that will allow you the shoot it in the Mosin. Most Tokarevs I see today are priced around $175-$200, some are in pretty bad shape, so check it out before you buy one.

By far the besst is the Hugo m7 . Widners has them for $217 with free shipping. The reaon I like the Yugo is it has abetter grip and holds 9 rounds instead of 8. As you can see I have added new grips and adjustable sights.

Surplus ammo for a reasonable price is very difficult to find. I looked at the Sportsman's Guide site but didn't see any surplus ammo.
