Next?

The local gun pusher just bought out a collection from a little old lady. Among those was a nice M1903 with 'C" stock. If I can get him to forget his usual pricing methods (high!), I hope to claim it as mine in 2010.

How about you?

I'd like to get a Tokarov Pistol to compliment my CZ-52.

The x25 tok is a fun caliber to shot from a pistol. Its like a little M1 carbine in your hands

Speaking of which, how are those surplus Tokarevs? They look kinda ugly, but if they shoot well I might have to pick one up!

Mine is a tack driver. Easy to shoot and has a very nice trigger. The ATF mandated safety is a waste of metal, but aside from that, they are nice.

The surplus Tokarevs are great.Id recommend trying to get a Polish one if you can because the fit and finish seem to be better than others Ive seen.I used to have one and it was a great shooter.

I'd add that the Yugo M57 Tokarev is particularly nice. The safety looks like it belongs on the gun, and the extra grip length means one more cartridge on hand. Here's mine:



Very nice, indeed. You'll only shoot it without hearing protection once.
