About the Cartridge

This was the official Soviet pistol cartridge adopted in 1930 for the Tokarev Model TT-30 and modified Model TT-33 automatic pistols. The cartridge is very similar in dimension to the 7.63 mm Mauser cartridge. Most brands of Mauser ammunition can be fired in the Tokerev pistol. The 7.62mm Tokarev is a fair cartridge with good velocity and flat trajectory but needs softpoint bullets for maximum effectiveness.

My dad pass away and left us with his collection. I've took this one. Fun to shoot. Only complaint about this pistol is the agronomic, ammo hard to find, parts is almost non-existence.
