Norinco Tokarev problem

I can't rack the slide unless the trigger is cocked. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance

Tokarev

Dear Sir:
It could a no lubrication issue. These guns, and many others rely on hammer pressure to "help" the operating system. It may be that cocking that hammer is causing your problem - lube that hammer when cocked with some synthetic grease and try it - really rack that slide - try it - it may not be the problem but I'll bet it is!

If you start with the hammer in the half-cock notch, you will not be able to rack the slide. Start with the hammer down and you won't have any problem.

I'll check it

when I get home, but I believe the hammer is down. I didn't know there was a half-cocked position.
It shoots fine, but you just can't rack the slide unless the hammer is cocked.
It's OK for the range if I'm careful, but I wouldn't ever try it anywhere else.
Kind of frustrating.
Thanks

It's a leverage issue, I've got it on my Nork 213 as well.

Honestly, with the 7.62x25 chambered Norks I'd leave it be, that could very well assist in lock time. If I *had* to fix it, not saying I would, the solution would be to reshape the base of the hammer nose and radius the rear of the slide where it contacts the hammer (or the FP retainer, same diff).

I have a similar problem with my norinco NP-17 9mm tokarev, when I dry fire with, the hammer never go to the FP it stop to the half cocked position. this is the magazine safety or a broken piece in the gun?
