Let's talk Tokarev


OK, I know…it’s a Tokarev, but…

I have an issue with slide lock before the Magazine is empty. My Tok is a TTC frame and Russian slide. Also, the magazines don’t drop freely. Any ideas on what that could be?

Also…the thing is sighted in at like 20 meters or something. Are there any replacement back sights out there that can correct that, or do I have to live with it, or get the file?

I am determined to get it working, it’s kind of a project piece.


Hl punty. Can you please explain in steps what happens? It sounds like the slide locks back during shooting. How many rounds are left. With the info provided I can only guess that the slide release spring is broken or weak, during recoil the “ loose” slide release is engaging the slide. Any more info and we can figure it out.
