Family portrait...

Post by Charles Lipscomb »

Below, in no order are pics of all the toks in my collectikn.
On no particular order they are two russian tt 33 s. One 1943 dated. This is the one my dad brought home from korea in 53,
A russian with the added thumb safety.. dated 1950. 99.97 with holster, and lanyard from century back in 1999. Surprised at how much these are oung for now, mosin crate had one the ither day listed at 699.
Romanian dated 1953. It look about unissued when i got it numbers match, except for the hammer pack. 2 mags and a new holster.
Polish 1952, matching. In excellent condition. But pretty sure it was refinished as it is a dark dull black. Unlike the blued steel i have seen on others.
Chinese/russian/yugo hybrid. A real world mixmaster i built myself over several years.
Why? Because it was the early oughts and i wanted another tokare. This was before the flood of pistols from europe hit.
I started it for kicks. I bought the frame gor 35 bucks on gb. I know i Way over paid as some had them for 5 bucks,
I had a buddy weld the holes closed... but i neglected to ask him to dress them down. Believe me a hand file is hard to use when you shake. So i left it
Only after did i start buying parts.
I pit on a 1941 russian slide. It has all russian internals, i won two auctions by the same guy,
The barrel is chinese. As is the magazine. I have a few. Great mags.
AThe internals including hammer pack is yugo,. I liked the yugo markings. And they were cheap.
It's wearing genuine used russian grips. They went on easy and look good.
And then we have the yugo sisters.
First one i got was a bd gift from my brother Randy. I had been jonesingg for one so he gave me his cc number
I got it from sog around 2007. Holster and two mags.
Funny story. When i opened the box i was hit by an oder. It was the new yugo holster. You could smell it from three feet. Lol i was wondering how to traeat it. Thinking dry cleaners. Anything to save it. Its a nice holster.
I asked mom, she came back with the only thing she had, "weiman's leather wipes".
I was skeptical but gave it a try. I rubbed it down and put it aside to dry. I repeated it two more times. Over 24 hours. Problem solved. I think it actually worked with the first one. Its that good.
Then i got the yugosllavian made TT in 2010. Price then was 300 all in on gb.. it was the civilan version of the m7oa in 9mm with the factory slide mounted safety.
These were so marked for u s sales by American Arms.
My buddy liked my tokarev. And while at a local pistol rsnge in 1988 saw a new one for sale, two mags a brush, black plastic "banjo" oiler , a clesning cloth and instruction manual printed on two sided heavy card stock.
They were only imported for about two years. And not in large numbers.
I had omly seen 3 sold between 1988 and 2010. Two of those were"kits" with no frame. And one mint in box listed @ 899.
Last is another m57. I got it from Todd for 69 bucks, i was actually looking for mags when he offered this parts lot. Frame, slide and barrel. It was only missing the recoil spring assy, a few internals and the hammer pack, as it was. Numbers matching and i had the parts , i put in a russian recoil spring assy went right in. It currently shares the hammer pack in the chinese build. If it works, i will buy one for it.


Goofed labeling the pics. Put chinese build under the yugo,
