a little more info please on how you did it.. did u use loctite? what size plugs? and a suggestin, you can get original military ploish grips cheap and replace the left panel. it''ll cover most of the groove cut in the frame.
your pistol was imported by the guys i wanted to get mine from. i had to settle on a century. sttill nice, but not as nice as the early imports...

Interesting, pretty good job of it, hard to notice there was once a safety there at first glass.

I thought the Polish Tokarevs had a safety towards the hammer.

BEING A MACHINIST THIS IS VERY EASY FOR ME, JUST REMOVE THE E-CLIP TAKE THE SAFETY OUT, MEASURE THE HOLES WITH A CALIBER, MEASURE ON MY TOK ARE .186" ON LEFT AND .180" ON RIGHT, I TURN 2 PLUGS ON THE MANUAL LATHE WITH SIZE LARGER .001" (.187" AND .181") AND LONG ABOUT .230" , USE A C-CLAMP TO PIN THEM INTO THE HOLES. DONE.

Good job! Kind of worthless safety on these. Can't figure how to get it to work on mine. They ruined (cut a notch) the plastic grip on mine, putting the unusable safety on. Does the Yugo one have this added on safety?

:? :? :? :? :? My solution ....replace the cheep after market grips with original Polish grips and just leave it. #-o #-o #-o A nonfunctional safety and you are back to the half cock and a some what original Polish look. :tounge: :tounge: :tounge: Except for that Fed mandated stupid safety lever.

The Yugo safety is in a better spot that saves the original grips and actually functions smooth.

I also put original grips back on a 1947 Polish Tok see:

YOU 'RE RIGHT, ONE SIDE THEN THE OTHER, FIELD STRIPE YOUR TOK BEFORE DO THAT, USE SOME THING TO COVER WHERE THE CLAMP TOUCH TO PREVET FROM SCRATCHING THE FRAME, YOU NEED 2 PLUGS NOT 1 LONG PIN, 1ST BECAUSE 2 HOLES NOT THE SAME SIZE, 2ND DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH TRIGER CLEARANCE, 3RD IN SOME CASES THE LONG PIN MIGHT TOUCH THE MAGAZINE PREVENT IT FROM DROPPING FREE AS YOU CAN SEE WHEN YOU TAKE THE SAFETY OUT, MANY PEPOPLES ENCOUNTER THIS PROBLEM ON THIS FORUM. GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN.

thanks again. i'm very familar with the Tokarev. my first gun was a russian tokarev my dad gave me when i was 6. he got it in korea. no firing pin when i got it, but i took care of that in 85. runs fine. been adding to my tokarev collection in the past couple years as the imports turned up.
i look forward to trying your plug method. i had been considering a screw and bolt method.. but that would sttill leave the hex heaf, or screw slot visable. the plugs would have no such issue..

Polish M-48 TT-33 Tokarev, some new up-date photos with classic grips, thinking for sale.
