Just bought a Norinco tokarev. Like new for 220 bucks. Anyone own one of these? What ammo do they like?

If it is 9MM it probably does not like any ammo, in that they left the sights regulated for the 7.62 on the one I had and it did not shoot near POA. I only ran ball ammo thru it as I recall, it was a cheap gun, my only 9, and I did not want to spend money on premium ammo for the thing! I think it was kinda loose so it grouped more like a well worn .45 than a target gun anyway.

Nah, I wanted a 7.62 tok. Just ordered a couple boxes of s+b and wwb. Cant wait to shoot it, it looks brand new. Still want a cz52, but the tok is really sweet

I have a Norinco M213 which is the Tokarev copy in 9mm. I shoots anything I put in it and quite accurate. I sometimes carry it concealed. Very slim and easy to conceal.

I field stripped it, cleaned and lubed it, and took it to the range today. White box Winchesters shot accurately, and ran smoothly. BUT- THE thing chews up the brass, and spits it all ovr the place. I guess I need to spend a bit of time on it. The entire inside of the slide has chunks of brass everywhere. :eek:
