Tokarev TT33

This is a forum for the weapons we knew about. It is also a place for remembering the equipment we carried and how and why we carried what we did.

Tokarev TT33

Postby Niner Alpha » Wed Apr 23, 2003 5:57 pm

This is like the trophy everybody wanted to take home. Unlike the AK47, it was a legal trophy. It is a model TT33 made in various communist countries. This one, however, wasn't a trophy. It is a recent import of a dated Polish 1948 pistol. It shoots a 7.62x25 Russian round that packs a knock down punch for its about 9mm size. This particular one shoots real good and doesn't have much kick to it all things considered. It takes down a lot like the M1911 .45 Colt.

I brought home a China-built Tokarev (Type 54) that I 'earned the old fasioned way'...
The original owner must have been quite proud of it because the pistol and one mag (matching serial number) were polished and blued.

I wish he hadn't done that, as the front sight got its edges round off and gives a fuzzy sight picture...plus my eyes ain't what they used to be. The 'trophy' includes all of the leather, as well, but the cleaning rod was nowhere to be found.

I would post a picture, but I don't know how...

Montana we are going to have a new website where you can post a picture directly from your computer very shortly.

One correction on my TT33, that particular one was made at the factory with a safety or it was added later for import. The original TT33's didn't have a safety. Other import versions have the safety behind the grips rather than in front
