    Sorry to all if this has already been breeched here but I couldn't find it.

    I've decided that a 7.62x25 Tokarev is a must for my collection. But, as I've noticed with all commie regime weapons there is a pretty large discrepancy in the build quality.

    So here it is, who made the best one? Was it the Russians, Pols, Romanians, Yugos, or any other that I may have left out?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all.

    I have a Norinco and a Romanian TTC, both of which are outstanding pistols.

    Something you might not know is that if you can find a spare 9mm barrel, you can have two guns in one. Mine swapped using the same bushing, link and pin, and the swap takes no longer than a field strip. 9mm ammo loads fine from the x25 mags. Sarco had some 9mm barrels a few months ago, but probably dried up with the x25 ammo shortage.

    I would rather have the Romanian than the Yugo because of availability of reasonably priced magazines. (they do not use the same mag) My Norinco has a better finish but a lousy after market safety. (I just removed it) The Romaian's safety is somewhat better, but still an after-market cheap add-on. I believe that the safety should be located between the ears anyway.

    I do not know of anyone who owns a Tok that doesn't like it. Go get one.

    If I didn't already have one, I would go for the $209.00 including hand select from J&G on the Romainan, and buy extra mags if they are available.

    Something else to consider,is that Numrich was selling a 1911 7.62x25 barrel conversion kit.

    But its alot of work to get it right.

    End result is highly desirable for those that appreciate the 7.62x25 tok- 1911 quality & Browning ergonomics.

    I'd like to find a way to do this without having to resort to loading your own 7.62x25.....being able to shoot factory/milsurp stuff in a setup like this would be fantastic!

    Not bad but they show sold out- If you have a 9mm or super 38 1911 that would be kinda cool to have :cool:
