    My birthday is coming up and I'm planning on getting myself a Tokarev pistol. In the $200 range there is a Polish TT, Romanian TTC and a Yugo M57. I'm leaning towards the Romanian TTC due to the availability of extra magazines. But if one of the others is clearly better I might go that route and just keep my eyes out for extra magazines.

    Have you priced ammo for that yet? If you reload its within reason to shoot.

    I like Tokarevs( and CZ' s, and Makarovs- use a Bulgy for CCW& an M57 for a car gun))....even with the increased ammo cost; they are great guns....

    I have a pair of the Tokarevs, Chinese and Romanian and I like them a lot. I was fortunate to find a 9mm barrel for my Romanian TTC that makes it a dual caliber gun. The magazines will load either 9mm or 7.62 with no problems. You can still find the 7.62 surplus ammo, but if you find surplus, buy it now. Before you ask, the 9mm barrel came from Sarco and they no longer have any in stock.

    Thanks for the input, next C&R gun I pick up will be a Tokarev, AIM has 7.62x25 for about $16 a box so that isn't to bad. Still going back and forth between the Romanian and Yugoslavian variants.

    I've owned all three...Traded the Rommie and polish and kept the yugo.The Yugo has the slide safety which I prefer over the other two.Inmho the Yugo is the better of the three. Anno is available-just have to look for the best deal. May be mildly corrosive...clean the gun and you won't have any problems. Hope this helps Dick

    Looks great! I got the Romy at a local gun show for $245 and love to shoot it. Ammo is readily avail from Sportsman Guide among other places. Enjoy!

    i keep pressure on myromanian's mid-frame safety to keep it from stopping the fun; i think i'd prefer the yugo's, but don't know if i need another...who knows?

    How long ago did you get the Russian?? How did you find one without that aftermarket " safety " the ATF forced on? How much?

    I picked it up with all matching serial numbers on the slide, frame, barrel, and holster. The mag had a different serial number. I scored it for $200, I don't know if maybe the rules are different here in Canada. What would u figure this is worth? Did I get a deal?

    Yeah, here in the States, the BATF are fond of administrative vandalism.

    Safety, safety? You use a safety?

    They are just in my way 99% of the time.
