Hi all, I just got a Yugo Tokarev M57 with serial number E49155 on the front rt. side of the slide. Some other mfg. marks, etc. but NO mfg. date/s. Anyone know where or how to find out
when/where it was made? I tried some sites but no luck. Thanks! Mac Lanagan. :?:

Ok, so we have E-prefixes with 5 torch crests and F-prefixes with 6 torch crests, so the date sequence should be one of two ways (__ indicating "No Prefix" or "No Production"):

1957 __ __
1958 A- __
1959 B- A-
1960 C- B-
1961 D- C-
1962 E- D-
1963 F- E-
1964 G- F-
1965...

Now we just need an E-prefix with 6 torches or an F-prefix with 5 torches to nail it down. Perhaps someone should start a survey on these (# of torches, prefix, approximate SN).

if 'mupples' is correct, mine was made in 1964, it's a "G" series..
