    old Tokarev pistol

    Hi all
    My WW2 vet neighbor that I had posted previously about his Nambu pistol had showed me another today that he had which was a Tokarev pistol it had a star on the grip with the letters CCCP , the only other markings were the numbers HK491 and the date 1941 on it . The HK is what through me im not knowledgeable on soviet pistols . Any clues and what caliber? there are no markings , and he didnt know.

    Lots of gun companies use letter designations to signify the date of manufacture.

    It would be my guess that that means the same thing. 1941 may be the year the model was introduced, the HK is the year it was actually made.

    The traditional caliber for the TT-33 is 7.62x25.

    They are pretty cool pistols, remind me a lot of a 1911 with how they feel and shoot.

    They are still fairly cheap. Kind of ugly though. Even so, I've been contemplating one.

    That little .30 is no slouch for a pistol round.

    I've played with one, hope to shoot it soon, belongs to a friend whose relatives brought it home after the war with an old Beretta.
