At least one foot. Like my first long gun bought with a C&R. See, full evidence of toes.

My first C&R was a Polish P-64 9mmx18 Makarov. Just because I could.
It feels like the double action trigger pull is about 20 pounds.
One of these days I have to get a new set of springs for it.
My other 4 C&R buys have been Garands.
Last fall renewed it for another 3 years.

Just installed new, lighter springs in mine. World of difference, highly recommended.

Agreed. The only complaint I've had was from a friend who swore the SA was borderline hair-trigger after the spring swap. He didn't like it all. As for me, I like it fine. No creep and a light, crisp break.

Same spring weights? I know Wolff makes a few different weights of slide, hammer and trigger springs. It could also just be his is worn more and needs one step up on the trigger spring.

I am still eyeing a P64, but I am looking to pick-up a CZ-50 and I kind of feel like I don’t need yet another caliber by going with 9MAK. Though if I some day get a CZ-82, a P64 seems like an “of course”. If there are any left around.

So here are a couple pictures of my "new" Tokarev. I know they aren't that great. I will try to get better ones with my real camera later today. There is some definite finish wear, but no real damage. Also, the bore looks really nice. Very happy with my purchase.

Had some time so I decided to do a field strip on it and see how bad it was inside. Not bad at all. However, I did notice some numbers that I was not sure of. I know that on some guns, different parts will be numbered, but I know nothing about Tokarevs. I am sure that there are some experts here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is what I found on the sides of the hammer assembly.

On the right side is the number '08'



On the left side was the number '7770'. It almost looks like it was put on with a vibrating engraving tool.

Looks like you received a nice one, KJackson. Ain't it great to have a C&R handgun delivered directly to you via your FFL-03??

For any lurking gun-grabbers: An FFL-03 is an ATF vetted and granted Collector of Curios & Relic's firearms license. It ain't one of your "so-called" loopholes
.

The M57 is a cool TT-33 variant. While not a Russian Tokarev, collecting them can be addictive. Here's a pic of my Romy & Polish TT-33's, my Yugo M57 and a newer Tok version: Zastava M-70A chambered in 9 mm. All are nice shooters.

Yours should be a fun shooter! Enjoy shooting it ---> and add another to keep it company.

Oh, and thanks for pics of feet covered with socks. Ain't nothing worse than seeing "gross or bloody toes" in obligatory pics...
