9mm Tokarevs

I have a Norinco "M-54-1" Tokarev and can't figure out the magazine situations for it. From what I gather the Chinese welded a shim inside the magwells (on some) to make smaller 9mm tok magazines fit into the regular sized tokarev mag well.

Well... mine came with a regular sized tok mag but 9mm jams in the magazines made for 7.62x25. This gun doesn't have the shim welded into the magazine well.


Should I add a magwell shim myself then try to find the 9mm mags for it or should I leave the mag well alone and weld shims to actual 9mm magazines? I just tried to shim a 9mm mag I had got somewhere else to try and it would work other than it's not worth the time and work welding and filing down the mag to fit. I can't get at the inside of the mag with a file to file down where some of the weld went into the magazine (the welds stop the follower from working right, you can't file them all the way down completely).
