Found a Chinese Tokarev in 9x19, without the Norinco roll stamp locally at a pawn shop for $300 tax included. All matching numbers, and some wear.
I think it will be a nice little project gun and perhaps if I can find an extra slide, I could maybe mill it one day and put a MRDS on it…because it hasn’t been done.
Regular Toks are out of stock, and were 260 including shipping and FFL transfer, so I don’t think it’s an amazing deal but only a hair above market. The sold list on gunbroker had ones in better shape for 400, so it seems fair enough.
Reputation on line says they’re not as good as the Euro 7.62x25 Tokarev, but I don’t want a new caliber right now. Work on it probably won’t be too difficult to get it running well.
It’s on layaway, just so that I can research it, and if I cancel then I lose at most $15.
If anyone has an opinion on the price, please share.
If anyone knows where the navy arms .38 super barrels/conversions can be found, please share.
