Russian TT-33s

Post by Youngblood »

My three Russian TT-33s :

In addition to these I have a few of the Variants: 2 Poles, 2 Romys and 4 of the Yugo M57s.

Yes, I like the TTs and the 7,62x25 cartridge. :)

Amazing "tetejka" collection.
Cold you tell us the years of production?

Yes, "tetejka" is a common word for TT-33 (and other from that Russian pistol family). TT is phonetic sound Te-te, so tetejka is Pistol TT.

In Slovenia and in other Balcan states and probably in all Slavic language areas. :D

"tetejka" ... I have found myself repeating that word since I first read it in your post. I really like the sound of it.

Tetejka!

Thanks for the explanation/education, M67! :)

For you is phonetically (in English) more close "Teteykah"
Its just double T!

Nice TT's, especially the '52. I'm biased toward the post-war TT's, as I own a '47 Izhevsk:

I picked this one up for $169.00 (CDN) a couple of years back. A lot of TT's showed up in the last few years in Canada, but most of the ones available now are over $200, and many have a large billboard TT- C on the slide.

Btw, there's an excellent sticky on the TT33 over on the Canadian Gunnutz forum. I skimmed the forum rules, didn't see anything about linking to another forum, but I don't want to post the link, in case it's against the rules and I just missed it.

It's good to see this forum back.

S.B. Click on your name in the upper right to see your profile. Click on that to open up the User Control Panel.

Then: Board Preferences, edit display options. Look to the right to see which buttons are clicked, especially the first one: "display images within posts".

That's all I can think of.

I will have to post a few pics of my 1941. All numbers match, including the magazine.
