Actually the steel blue with wood grips looks excellent. Where'd you get them, by the way?

Blue and wood is nice. If it were mine, I would leave it alone. Why don't you send it to me?

Mine is not so pretty. Made in the USSR in 1940..History unknown until I bought it from my Houseboy at Bien Hoa, RVN in 1962. it remains in it's original finish

Please leave it in the OE finish. It is your gun but blue + wood is such a looker. The only other finish I would go for would be parked. That is about it. Trust me, any other color looks BAD. Stainless looks pretty good on the newer production, but blue + wood is to die for.

Ha! Never said I didn't like it and it shot like poo and I was going to throw it in the river. Your response would have been appropriate if I had said any of those things but alas this is a keeper!

Not hating but we had a lethal force, handgun training course last June where a gent showed up with one and was actually asked to leave the firing line because of all the issues he kept having with it. I talked to the instructor last week and he said if anybody showed up this year with a Tokarev, HE, the instructor, was leaving! Are they that troublesome?

Your Tokarev might have quite a bit of history behind it, it may have seen action in World War II and the Vietnamese
uprising against the French in the 1950's. That in my opinion makes it a keeper.

I've got a range review up here some where but to answer your question: no, I've had no issues. 160 rounds the first time out and no malfunctions what so ever.

I have had it for 51 years so far, and have no plans to let it go in the future.

Good to hear because I kinda like the lines of yours. Might have to keep my eyes peeled, I like off the wall stuff.
