I have lost track of how many Tokarevs I own, but it is most likely less than a dozen.

I only own one true T33, a 1939 Russian. You would be lucky to find one of those for sale.

I have the book "Collector's Guide to Tokarevs"
http://www.amazon.com/collectors-gui.../dp/B0006ECTX6
Which is out of print.

10 years ago I proved that the books were wrong about the CZ52 vs Tokarev strength, sill there are guy who know more than I do about collecting, at this forum:

I can tell you that of all the countries of origin of Tokarevs, the Chinese shoot just as well as the rest, except the model 213, that has some strange parts in it, and was meant for 9x19mm only. The 213 is not as good as other Tokarevs, but still a very good pistol for 9mm.

"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
