My Soviet Tok

Postby rbl2 » Sun Aug 31, 2014 3:01 pm

I found this at a gun show about 2 years ago. I almost passed on it but since I have always wanted one and my wife was complaining that I didn't own enough firearms I went ahead and bought it. It's dated 1942 and as you can see predates the safety ban. The bore is so so. The lands are smooth and shiny but the grooves look like they have small black lumps in them and cleaning it repeatedly does not remove them. The bluing is a little faded but otherwise ok. It came with one magazine. Since then I have added several more. It shoots very well. As much as I like my Norinco version of the same weapon it pales compared to this Soviet made one. For the record I paid $250 for it.

I never said I was a good photographer so here goes...

Your thoughts? Don't be afraid to get on my bad side, no one else is.

You did pretty good at 250. It's probably a Vet bring back. As I don't see any import markings. The safety was added so it could qualify for importation after the 1968 Gun Control Act. As noted, yours doesn't have one.

My first gun was a Tokarev my Dad bought back from Korea. It's a 1945 Tula, matching numbers, except the magazine. I lost that when I was a kid. Still have it, and added 6 more over the years.
You should be on the lookout for a Polish Tokarev, and a Romanian. Poles are turning up again Aimsurplus just had 150 and sold out in less than two days.
Romanian s are a little more plentiful, and cheaper than the Polish copies...

That's a good price for a Soviet Tok. They often run $500 or more.

Where did you get it from? $250 is cheap for a Russian TT
