  • New toy: Chinese knock off Tokarev

    Got a Norinco Type 54-1 (Tokarev). Just pick it up three days ago. I purchase from a young fellow that was selling out his dad's old collection. The Norinco looks brand new but can tell it was sit in a safe for years without a drop of oil.

    In CA, there is 10 days waiting period. So the was 10 days I can't touch the gun. And last thursday when I pick up my new toy, I can't help but shoot few rounds to "dust it off". It performed 104 rounds flawlessly (with Romania surplus ammo from ammoman).

    That 7.62x25 has nice little kick. It felt like a hot 9mm, maybe around 9 +p. The trigger was nice, very 1911 like (a very one but 1911-like). I need to put some nail polisher on that sight, to improve its visibility.

    After 100rd, there are two minor problem beside that tiny sight. One the Chinese knock off Tokarev has a safety located similar to where 1911 thumb safety is. However, instead to be horizontal to go along with the thumb. It's run almost vertical which upon recoil, it will dig in to my shooting hand thumb. 2nd, the gun got heat up really quick. After just 4 mags of shooting, the dust cover will be too hot to touch (not to the point burn my hand, but uncomfortable to touch).

    I can't do anything about the over heat problem but I just spend 2 hours to detail cleaning that gun (strip to the least of parts). And I think the gun can function without the safety so I might try it next week to see if I can shoot it and not get burn from sparks coming out that hole (where used to by safety).

    Also, there was two towel full of red rusty(?) mud that I wash out the gun. I really should of clean the gun before shooting it but I was really surprise that the gun function flawlessly even with internal full of dust and dry out lube.

    Pictures are in order.

    I remember selling those for something like $75 each back when I worked at a local sporting goods store in high school!

    The machining can be a little rough on them, especially the sharp edges, but they are true shooters!

        Yes there are plenty of sharp edges. And I plan to do something about them soon.
