Brutus' Description

These are exceptional, probably the nicest batch we've had here.  And no disrespect to the Yugo variation, but I like these better. 

These have a factory safety instead of an after production add on and the lines and fit are just cleaner.  These are in excellent condition with nice bluing and very minimal wear. Each pistol is packed in light oil inside a plactic bag... comes complete with an original surplus grade holster and extra mag.  Holsters will be one of the two styles pictured, randomly selected. Lanyards are not included in this batch. The finish on these is a deep rich blue. Some may have very slight bluing wear on the sharp edges but most do not. Bores have been very nice on the ones I have seen.

Each pistol is semi-automatic and fires the hard hitting, flat shooting 7.62x25 caliber cartridge.  These pistols come with two 8rd magazines.  Imported by P.W. Arms.

Note - Grips vary from pistol to pistol with some having a star emblem and others being the standard grooved non star variation.  

Don't you buy no ugly gun.... get one of these and be proud.....

Wow! I know you guys said that these tokarev's were in excellent condition, but I expected to see some wear in the bluing or on the grips or at least on the mag's, but much to my amazement I could not find a single blemish on the gun I purchased from you. I am ecstatic, to say the least. Keep up the great work!

Mine was in excellent shape. The lanyard ring was missing but barrel appears brand new. Mags, though different finishes, appeared mint also. This was a very nice and robust pistol for the price. Got 500 rounds of new brass boxer ammo so I can add this to my reloading bench.

Very nice refurb :-) Bluing and finish is great ! For all the whiners about the holster, go get a leather shop to make you one for $100.00 :-) It won't happen :-) Use some leather conditioner but clean it first :-) I would have preferred a non-refurbished gun as I collect but I don't mind about this one because they did such a great job :-)

Watch the video to see why I wanted one :-)

Romanian TTC Pistol was a good purchase.
Review by Bryan on 10/19/2014
Quality
I recently purchased a TTC Romanian Tokarev Pistol from Classicfirearms.com with accessories. I ordered it on a Thursday and received it a week later on the following Thursday. It was shipped through the USPS to my home since I hold a FFL 03 Curio and Relics License. When I opened it up I was happy with my purchase. It came with the Romanian Star pistol grips, a holster, cleaning rod and extra 8 round magazine giving me two magazines along with a lanyard for the pistol. I saw it on Classicfirearms.com and thought about ordering one for awhile before I pulled the trigger. I'm glad I did and looking forward to getting it cleaned up and shooting down range with it. The pistol itself is a TT-30 variant and there were several types made by different communist countries. Mine was made in Romanian around 1953 according to the stamped on the pistol. It came covered in oil inside a plastic bag and the inside of the barrel had what looked like cosmoline in it. I first thought that it was rust but it seemed to smear away when wiping it off. I knew better than to think it was rust especially since I got it from Classicfirearms.com and paid extra for a hand select. You can see what I bought through the video.

This batch of TTC pistols is fantastic! Classic has really done a great job of selecting an excellent bunch of pistols for us C&R fanatics. Mine had minimal wear on the slide, and while the bore is dark, it has strong rifling and looks like it's rarely been fired. I LOVE this pistol. It feels like a FN-1903 and shoots like a 1911. Gotta love it!

Unboxing of Romanian TTC Tokarev Pistol
Review by The Real Jeffer on 11/4/2013
Quality
This is my first Classic Firearms purchase. I paid for hand selection and I am very pleased with the pistol. My video shows the unboxing for those of you who have yet to buy something from Classic Firearms.

I disassembled and cleaned the pistol. It was very well oiled with no cosmoline.

The extra magazine has a "Made in Taiwan" sticker, but looks as good as the one that the pistol came with.

I will take it to the range tomorrow and test it. I am a little disappointed that 7.62x25 Tokarev ammo is not readily and cheaply available. Luckily I found some at a local gun show the other day.

Fantastic firearm! Great shape! Shoots very nice!
Review by Will on 8/27/2013

I bought the Romanian Tokarev TTC 7.62x25mm from here and received it within a few days. The TTC was floating around in a small box (no paper or bubble wrap or anything like that keeping it in place) which was in a slightly larger box. The gun is all metal and was not damaged in shipping but probably could of been packaged a little better? Lol.

The gun itself arrived in fantastic condition and only had a little cosmoline that I had to clean off. Only issue (very minor) was the front sight appears to be chipped (a tiny bit) on the front side (not affecting shooting or sight picture). The magazine is a little scratched/scuffed up but goes in easily and is not a problem.

All parts were numbers matching and the barrel was in very nice shape! The gun itself shoots very accurately and with very little recoil (100 rounds through it thus far). Easy to disassemble and clean and racking it is smooth and much lighter/easier than my SA XDm 45.

Since purchasing I have upgraded the grips to Tokagypt style (wetsanded and plastidipped) and grip angle is improved and highly recommend doing something similar to yours.

Unsure if pictures can be linked within a review but if so here is how this gun looks with these grips (plasti-dipped) http://bit.ly/13WJNkf

Highly recommend and classicfirearms.com was a pleasure to do business with. I plan on many more purchases here in the near future! :D

I bought two of these from Classic Firearms and am very happy with my purchases. The pistols are in excellent shape, look great, and function even better. After cleaning, they were flawless at the range with inexpensive Romanian ammo. The quality of workmanship is outstanding, as expected from the famous Cugir factory in Romania.
Great quality, Superb!
Review by Jordan on 7/11/2016
Quality
So I opened the box and was blown away from the condition the pistol was in! Holster was in amazing condition as well. Great shooting gun just like I've been wanting for awhile now. The gun was failing to feed maybe 1/4 of the shots, possibly from old cosmoline that needed more cleaning on the slide or I also noticed the bullet was possibly getting stuck on the feed ramp because the original machining from the factory was rough. The machine marks were perpendicular to the bullets so I took steel wool and tried to smooth it out but haven't tested it yet.

Overall, this is a great piece of history and I'd been wanting one of these Browning-like pistols! I fired from about 90 yards at a dirt mound and it was hitting exactly where I was aiming it! I heard the Soviets trained with them at 80 yards, so that's awesome! I had a barrel making company that makes world class carbon fiber barrels look over the barrel and said it had some minor rust pitting inside the barrel which is to be expected from it's age and it had a small curvature to the middle of the barrel from it's original machining work. After shooting it I was happy with it's accuracy and didn't notice any problems besides me being a bad shot half the time Lol

Oh, and I did have the hand picked option. Which did come with the RPR star on the grips.
Excellent handgun

The pistol itself is in excellent condition as advertised! The holster is crap, and it didn't come with a cleaning rod. But I like the pistol so much that I ordered a second one.

Review by Jeffrey on 7/6/2016

My apologies to Classic Firearms for my tardiness in submitting this review. Purchase made in April 2016. This is my second C&R eligible purchase experience with Classic Firearms. Order process was easy and again I gambled by not opting for a hand select option. UPS delivery of ammo took two business days. USPS delivery of my first 03 FFL purchase took only four business days. Opening the box, the TCC-33 is just beautiful! Finish is rust and scratch free. Grips are intact and clean with star emblem. Barrel is bright with no pitting. Grooves and lands are there but appear smooth. Came with two magazines, both are in great shape and insert/eject freely. One of the magazines has a lanyard lug on the base plate, umm, not a fan. Firearm has an intact lanyard lug. Detail striping found firing pin and well to be very dirty, sticking with slight rust. They cleaned up easily and now function smoothly. A few words about the added safety. It’s placement makes for a short thumb memory learning curve. The retainer has crisp on/off points. Safety assembly is tight, smooth and does not detract from weapons overall appearance. Would not recommend carrying this weapon round chambered. The sights are intact and tight. I am extremely pleased with this 63 year old weapon. The order came with a smelly, moldy, gummy bicolor holster that did not clean up well. Range Report- Function is smooth using Romanian surplus ammo. Shoots low and left. Looking into adjusting sights. All in all…. I love this gun! Next on my Classic Firearms wishlist is a SKS.
Awesome!!!

Purchased two of these. One was perfect and one had some issues. Aesthetic wise, both beautiful!
One of them did have a broken trigger spring which locked the whole thing up, classic customer service offered to trade the weapon out. I happened to have a buddy with a spare trigger spring and fixed it within 3 minutes.
Shoots excellent!!!!
Very happy with my purchase.
Nice 63 year old pistol, that almost looks new.

I ordered this Romanian Tokarev at the same time I ordered a Bulgarian Makarov to save on transfer fees, and it was almost like receiving two new pistols in one shot!

Classic Firearms did an excellent job as usual, as I could not ask for any better service.The fit, finish and bluing appears to be very nice! Both pistols have been dunked in oil (not Cosmoline) before they were placed into a plastic bag, so clean-up will be a breeze. I can't wait to take them both to the range to see cold war accuracy of our adversaries.
Wow!

MUCH better than described.So nice I am ordering my 2nd one.Found additional mags on line cheap and now have 4 spare mags.
Great caliber.I have a new modern 9mm sub-compact with laser also...This is much better round thn the 9mm to me.Shoots flat,and packs a wallop.Ammo a bit pricey but if you stay on top of it you`ll find it on sale.
As usual Classic has done it again.

This was my first purchase from Classic Firearms and I am extremely impressed with their great products, excellent customer service and super fast shipping. The Tok was in beautiful condition when it arrived. It's going to be like Christmas this week. As my Russian M91/30 Mosin Nagant Rifle from Classic Firearms is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow and then the Swiss K1911 Carbine Straight Pull Rifle should be here by the end of the week. And when payday comes around I will be ordering a Yugo SKS :) .

I purchased this weapon several months ago and just now got around to reviewing it. My particular Tokarev was manufactured in 1956 and looks as good as the day it came from the factory. The bluing is excellent, and the bakelite grips give it a certain air of history. It shoots accurately and reliably; the grip forms well to the hand. I highly recommend this weapon!

Review by Arkansas Bob on 5/18/2016

This is my second Romanian TTC pistol and I can confidently say they are an excellent pistol and allot of fun to shoot. My first one was like a new gun and I wish I hadn't sold it. I really don't think it had ever been shot before. Now, for this pistol. I don't think it had ever been carried but it had also not been cleaned after being test fired so the barrel was full of rust. I am In the process of cleaning it now and a quick cursory cleaning of the barrel is proving to be promising in that the damage is not to bad. Just disappointing because the rest of the gun is in such great shape. It was a hand select but I don't blame classic for this. It's just one of those things and I think that it will still be a good shooter. My first of these pistols was great shooting gun! Get these while you can. I might just have to order another when I get the extra money. Thanks Classic for your great service and allowing us access to all the great peaces of history!
GREAT condition
Review by Jerry on 5/18/2016
Quality
I gave 4 stars because barrel condition is poor. However, I was VERY happy with the 1st impression. The hand-pick option is certainly worth it. Upon field stripping I noticed the barrel was in poor condition. It looks like significant pitting within only the rifling of the barrel. I cleaned it with Hoppes 9 cleaner, this improved it by 80%. I plan to clean it further when I get time. I'm not really sure what was in the barrel, possibly lead build up?? I'm not sure. I'm hoping further cleaning will bring it back to great condition.

Besides the barrel, I'm VERY impressed with the quality. I will certainly shop again with Classic and I'm happy with my purchase. Many thanks Classic!!
Outstanding Cold War Pistol
Review by T-Bird on 5/14/2016
Quality
I just got this pistol from the dealer today and I was so relieved to see the gun. I paid for the hand picked option just for safe measure and I have no regrets laying another $20 down on this pistol. The outside was in awesome condition with almost perfect bluing around the entire pistol. The pistol also had the star grips with no nicks or scrapes. In addition, the holster had minimal wear, however, the extra magazine holder on it is a little stiff. I looked down the barrel and was not completely disappointed. The bore was not super shiny and there was some rust, but after a good cleaning I was relieved to see that the groves were still in great condition and there was almost no pitting of any kind. I shot 3 magazines through it and they were relatively accurate even though I am not the best with pistols. Also, I had 0 malfunctions with PPU ammunition. The trigger pull is pretty heavy, around 10 Ibs, but that is how they had to make war pistols. My only complaint is that the added safety does not move very crisply, it may just need a little oil but the hammer half-cock works great as a safety. Overall it is a steal for a pistol from the early cold-war era. 9.5/10

Excellent pistol
Review by Johnny on 4/23/2016
Quality
I finally pulled the trigger, so to speak, and bought myself one of Classic's Tokarevs. It arrived in great aesthetic and mechanical shape. I even got the star grips. The pistol came very well packaged and it was heavily oiled to prevent rust. I give this pistol 5 stars because even though it was not a brand new, modern firearm, it is in excellent shape for its age and was exactly as advertised. If I really wanted to nitpick the condition, I could point out that the bluing, while nice, was mildly non-uniform in color in a few spots (but not worn off) and there were a few dings on the grip panels from use. But you can't knock a 60+ year old C&R pistol for such minor issues. In fact, my description of these minor flaws make them sound worse than they are. Honestly, the condition of this pistol was better than I expected. In fact, I need to shut up before I talk myself into ordering another!

Review by Prince of Pistoleers on 4/10/2016

Classic Firearms does an awesome job keeping you informed with the process through email. They are reasonable with their shipping/handling fee, and they are quick with their shipping having received it in 6 days. There is some noticeable wear in the bluing due to holstering but nothing worn through. Barrel wear looks good. Holster is brown in color and appears unused judging by me having to force the pistol in to get it closed. Nice it comes with two mags. The ammo is a very fast and penetrating round. I purchased the hand select option but would not recommend it to others. Nice firearm for those just entering the curio/relic collecting.
Nearly perfect piece of history
Review by Jared on 4/10/2016
Quality
I purchased this firearm about a month or so ago from Classic Firearms after researching the Tokarev. While I found the gun for a few dollars cheaper at other sites, I was impressed with Classic's description and by all of the customer reviews I read. The entire purchase process was painless and very easy. The pistol arrived covered in grease, something I was prepared for. After spending some time cleaning and lubricating it, I was extremely impressed by the fit and finish of the weapon. It was manufactured in 1956 and looks nearly new. All of the numbers matched, as advertised. I will say that the barrel had some fouling in it, so it has been fired before.
I managed to track down 7.62x25 ammo, and I must say this pistol is accurate and the recoil is extremely manageable. The Bakelite grips are very detailed and show only minor wear. I'm very impressed with Classic Firearms. In fact, I just ordered a Mosin Nagant 91/30 hex receiver dragoon era rifle. Classic has definitely earned my business and I plan on expanding my collection of Soviet era weapons.

Review by William on 4/7/2016

What a fantastic firearm. Super clean and a flawless shooter. Blueing was in absolute excellent condition as advertised. Even got the star grips. Came packed in oil so after a little cleaning I was outside testing it. Sights are dead on and the ejecter really ejects those shells far away from you. Both my clips fed the gun well with no failures to feed. Very low recoil and an absolute joy to shoot. Classic firearms has done it again. Great piece of history that looks as good as it shoots. Thanks again Classic.

I ordered "Hand Select for Exterior Cosmetic" for + $20.00. Exterior is fine. No problem there. Grips would best be described as Fair/Good. I was showing it to a friend and cringed when the sunlight hit the red rust right inside the muzzle. Stripped it when I got home and found raised red rust throughout the bore. Soaked it in oil, cleaned with a phosphor bronze bore brush several times, Wrapped brush with strands of Big 45 Metal cleaner for a several more times & cleaned with patches. Removed the red rust & exposed the pitted bore. Worse near the muzzle & the beginning of the rifling at the chamber. The gun was oozing oil in the box from everywhere but the barrel. It was dry as a bone inside with red rust. First "dud" I have gotten ordering sight unseen. Bummed & embarrassed. Guess I was due. All other guns have been fine.

Received my Tokarev today super fast shipping orderd it on a Tuesday and got it Friday. The finish is excellent on the pistol and the two mags very small signs of usage. The barrel did have some rust in it but once swabbed out there was very minimal pitting.The holster is pretty rugged which is cool it also has the last person it was issued to name on it super cool. It did have some black gooey stuff on the bottom of it. I did not receive the cleaning rod and lanyard with it but oh well still a great buy.

I purchased one of these about a year ago through classic. I was very pleased with the pistol until I inspected the bore. The bore was very pitted and damaged, and when I fired it for the first time the accuracy was terrible. I shoot pistols well even out to 75yds but my TTC shot very badly even at 5 and 10yds. I sold it but wanted to keep it. I want another tokarev but am afraid to buy one because I am afraid I will get another one with a bad barrel

I purchased this gun a few days ago. It arrived at my FFL Dealer and I picked it up. So I get Home and although I had looked it over in the store, I gave closer inspection. When they say Excellent, man you ain't just blowing smoke. I was amazed. This looks and feels like a new Gun. I didn't opt for hand select. I am very pleased with my purchase. I am giving this review without having fired the gun. It is in that nice of shape. I mean it's tight. When you get it, be ready for a good cleaning. when they packed these away, they meant for it not to rust. You looking for a deal on a Tokarev, well this is the place.
Overall A Very Good Purchase. Get Yourself One.

I have been considering one of these for a long time. When I read the description that this batch was probably the nicest Classic has had, I decided now was the time.
When my box arrived, I was on my way to work. I had to wait all day to open it. When I did I was amazed. The gun came wrapped in plastic and swimming in oil, not cosmoline, and nicely bubble wrapped as well. It was BEAUTIFUL! Looked brand new. It was a 1952. Not a scratch or wear mark or anything on it. Two like-new magazines as well. Clean, no cosmoline, just a little oil for protection, and very solid. I got one with the star grips and lanyard loop, so i was very pleased with that. The ONLY imperfection I could find was two very miniscule nicks near the bottom of the right grip. Not an issue at all. The bore had a little bit of cosmo buildup inside but it cleaned up effortlessly. It was shiny and bright with excellent grooves. Looked like it had never been fired. The add-on safety that I heard many stories about how poor it was, seems to be solid. I don't think there will be any issues with it. Mine functions well. Doesn't feel cheap at all. A quick exterior wipedown with a 1:1 ratio Simple Green solution to remove the excess lightweight gun oil, and she was ready to rock. Overall I'm quite pleased with my purchase! I do have to mention before I forget that this was WITHOUT choosing the extra hand-select option. I firmly believe that I couldn't have scored better if I had chosen that route. Classic was not kidding when they said this was a nice batch!
Now for the negative, but certainly not a deal breaker. Did not come with a lanyard, but that was to be expected as it clearly said so in the description. So I can't take points off for that. The holster... JUNK! The exterior didn't appear to be too bad. One of the belt loops was severed at the attachment point and had been reattached. Poorly. All I can say is I am very glad I looked inside before trying to slide the gun in. Some drunken Ivan reattached it by poking both ends of a six inch piece of heavy gauge stiff copper wire through the end of the loop and the back of the holster and twisting the ends together inside the holster right where it would do the most damage to the exterior finish of the gun. Yikes! I had hoped to do a leather reconditioning of the holster for authenticity sake, but that option has left the building. Not very pleased with that. Oh well, you win some and you lose some. Also, it didn't come with the cleaning rod either, which was not mentioned in the description, so points off for that. But, as i said, not a deal breaker. The Tokarev itself is what matters, and I couldn't be happier with the one I received.
As an added bonus I have to mention that I have several Romanian coworkers. When I told them about my purchase and showed them pictures, they were very excited and graciously pointed out on a map of the country where Cugir is located and proudly showing me the towns where they were from and telling me stories about the country and how and why they came to the U.S.. That's what is special to me about the C&R guns. I enjoy the history that comes along with them. They aren't just guns. They are someone's memories and stories.
Thank you, Classic Firearms.

Got my Tok within a week and I'm pleased. The gun looks new after few hours of cleaning. I had to scrub the barrel out real good and I'm surprised its in such good shape for being 61 yrs old (1955). Only shot 50 rounds through it but functions flawlessly. I used Wolf Gold cause there's alot of it available. Buy one and keep it for another 60+ years.

Review by Andrew on 3/7/2016

This was my third purchase from Classic. Once again, I couldn't be happier. The bluing on the gun is between 95 and 98%. It was coated in some gun oil that wiped right off, no cosmolene. I ran a brush and some patches through the bore to discover it was free of pitting and fairly bright. Both magazines were in excellent condition. For an Army veteran like me who used an M1911A1, handling this and maintaining it are very familiar. For under $250, this is an exceptional buy. For someone that wants a nice handgun with a powerful round, this is the piece to go with.
Turned out great!

When I picked up my Tokarev from my FFL I was very concerend about the barrel. It was about half covered in rust. When I took it home I thought about calling classic to swap barrels, but decided to clean her up first. It turned out to just be surface rust and old oil. The barrel is bright with almost no pitting. The rest of the gun is perfect no putting or rust. Blueing is 100%.All matching numbers. The holster, cleaning rod and mags are in great condition. Started of a little concerned but it turned out to be a great pistol!! I'm impressed.

Review by matthew on 3/5/2016

Always wanted one of these and finally was sucked in by the advertised description. Did not pay extra for the hand select but I'm not disappointed. Its got a couple of marks but overall in superior surplus condition. Picked up a box of the surplus ammo which looks pretty good although I haven't shot any yet. Mine turned out to be a 1955. Barrel is mismatched but quite bright after a quick swabbing. Both mags look good and work perfectly. Star grips and a lanyard ring that would be my preference. The holster appears to have never been used and is quite quite snug when you close the flap. I presume its shrunk a bit from storage I expected to have to really work at cleaning it up but it comes in fairly light oil. Its easy to strip. The firing pin was the grungiest and was stuck forward until I worked out by pressing on the hammer end. Pumped it while submerged in paint thinner and now it works freely. Put a box of S&B through it and it functions well. Accuracy was decent but can't say I was shooting for a score. It did make the cow pies fly though.

Very impressed. For a 63 year old gun the conditioning is great. Its likely a refurb, but so what. My barrel had zero pitting, which is really surprising. With all the accessories it is a great deal. Do the homework on the gun though. For example, don't pull the trigger without a round in it or you can damage the firing pin. I really love the feel of it, gotta say it fits my hands well.

Packed in protective oil in a plastic bag, this Romanian Tokarev appears to be brand new with 100 percent bluing and never fired. Maybe it was rearsenaled, if so kudos to the Cugir Factory for an outstanding job. It cleaned-up easily and is now ready for the range. Thanks again, Classic !

Very pleased with the TTC I received. Paid extra for hand select and the pistol arrived in excellent condition with star grips. Appears to be unfired since refurbishment.

Received my TTC 7 days after placing the order and that included a three day weekend! Pistol was more than I expected in terms of overall condition and box included a nice clean leather holster with little or no wear, 2 magazines and the cleaning rod but alas, no lanyard.
After through cleaning, the barrel was bright and rifling look good. I put a couple of rounds downrange and had a few hiccups with the darn ATF safety not allowing trigger pull unless it was REALLY pushed down into fire mode. Not classics fault, I'm exploring options to remedy situation. BTW this purchase has already paid me back for my C&R license fee. Classic I'll be back.

What a beautiful hunk of Romanian steel! Very oily, but that just gave me an excuse to tear it down (not difficult) and clean the heck out of it! ;) All serial numbers on the gun match and the barrel cleaned up easily and looks great with perfect rifling and no pitting, even with all of the corrosive that has gone through it over the last 63 years! Both mags look fine and the nice leather holster is simply a bonus, especially at this price! Thanks, Classic Firearms, for another great addition to my Soviet Bloc\Cold War era collection!

I have nothing but great things to say about my new TTC. I paid for the hand select and received a GORGEOUS example, complete with the Soviet-style star grips. It was packed only in a light oil (with a bit of cosmoline in the barrel). Cleaning was easy and it looks brand new -- despite being from 1953! I can't wait to get it to the range! This was my first C&R purchase, but it won't be my last -- that's for sure!

Romanian TTC Tokarev Pistol
Review by Robert on 2/12/2016
Quality
The pistol arrived yesterday at my FFL. I ordered on Wed, and it arrived the following Thur. I did not select hand picked. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box! Its an awesome looking pistol. Of course the pistol was covered in oil. The holster was very nice, no lanyard but not a big deal. Happy with the two used but acceptable mags. I managed to give it a detailed cleaning. Removing the oil was pretty easy. The barrel was fairly dirty however it did clean up nicely it appears shiny with no obvious pitting of any kind. I'm not crazy about the safety. Yes it functions okay but it feels really cheap, and flimsy. I took a star for the safety if it wasn't for that I would give it 5 stars. It feels good in the hand, the weight is nice, and manageable. It seems to point naturally for me. The sights are good but not great overall pretty happy with the sight picture. If your thinking of getting one for your self, I highly recommend you do. I just love surplus guns, and this pistol is a nice piece to add to my meager collection. Thanks Classic Arms for the painless transaction, and a very nice pistol I must say.
Another outstanding firearm from Classic
Review by John on 2/8/2016
Quality
Cosmetically, this pistol could pass for never issued. Aftermarket safety, which seems to be a real hit or miss on other TTCs is smooth, with positive detent engagement in both positions. Bore was originally not as good looking as the cosmetics of the gun, but after cleaning, 25 rounds and a second cleaning, the bore did clean up nicely. Magazines are both in excellent shape. Grips have no sign of wear, and both panels have the star emblem.
The leather holster arrived dried, and with mildew on about 5 percent of the exterior. After two hours of cleaning, and working in leather conditioner, the holster looks new, takes a shine like a fine pair of boots, the leather is flexible, and the gun, spare magazine and cleaning rod all fit properly with no sticking or forcing into position.

On the range, the recoil is surprisingly light, no doubt due to the light weight of the bullet. Grouping at 25 yards was consistently on point of aim, with no flyers.

Classic has come through again for me.
Great pistol and great service!

Picked up one of these over a week ago and was thrilled to see the exterior cosmetics - perfect, even though I didn't pay the $20 "select" fee. However, when I looked down the bore, I was very disappointed - there was a significant amount of pitting! So, why did I give it a 5-star rating you ask? Well, I contacted the shop (thanks Amanda and Grayson!) and they told me I could swap out my barrel for one in better shape. It arrived today and I couldn't be happier! It's been shot, but not much, and is nearly perfect! Haven't shot it yet, but I don't anticipate any issues. I'll be doing business with Classic again in the future.
Very Nice!

Classic Delivers Once Again!
Review by TheGerman on 2/4/2016
Quality
I really do not know where to start. My review is absolutely not condescending, but actually I am normally a hard-nosed buyer. My problem with Classic -- I have nothing to complain about - a nice situation to be in.

I have purchased the following from Classic over the last year:

- 2 Finish M39s
- 2 Makarove P 63s
- 2 Tokarev TTCs
- 2 assorted other firearms
- a ton of other stuff
- lots of other stuff

My experience with Classic has been:
- when I called twice to change my order, it happened "right now", no "well place another order" stuff.
- the flow of emails keeping me up-to-date on exactly what the status was ...it was extremely timely (like "right now"!)
- even after all the surplus disclaimers (e.g. Classic surplus/ relic arms are as is), I have yet to be disappointed. Every weapon exceeded my expectation. Maybe that is because I read the Classic description.
- I made the mistake of ordering a Tokarev TTC from a different company for $10 - and what i received was a pistol in a substantially lessor condition, with a poor condition holster, and aftermarket safety in raw metal (no bluing). And it took 10 business days to get here - I regret that order.

Guys & Gals at Classic - you have earned my trust, and thank you for your service.

Received my tokarev from my local FFL a few days ago and was very pleased with the condition of the firearm. I chose the hand select option and I feel it was worth every penny. Blueing was in excellent condition. My only minuscule negative remark was that the holster was not in the best condition but I would not count that against them since the gun itself and magazines were in excellent shape.

Got my Tokarev today and was very happy with the way it looked... until I looked down the bore. Bummer! Pitted rather badly... I didn't pay for the "exterior cosmetics" (thank goodness) but it looks gorgeous (on the OUTside). Looks like someone took a brand new pistol, shot one box of corrosive ammo through it, and put it away without cleaning it properly. Haven't shot it yet and it may shoot OK, but...

One would never know that this firearm is 62 years old. Arrived in a bag slathered with cosmoline. After cleaning it,there was very few rub marks and the bore was oerfect. I didn't have hand select. A great addition to a military collection. The ammo they sell is supurb and hotter than new stuff. I got over 1500 fps! 4 stars because it did take almost two weeks to get it and since the ammo came seperately to my ffl i had to make 2 trips. Overall,i will buy from this vendor again!

Everything I have ever ordered for classic has met or been above what was expected except this pistol. I paid for hand select and the exterior is nice but the bore is full of rust and you can see it easily and the holster looks like someone spilled paint on it.

Very Nice Shooter
Review by drTodd on 1/4/2016

Since I have an FFL(03), I ordered this on-line. The only (minor) issue was sending Classic Firearms a copy of my C&R License. Scanned the license a number of times and each upload would indicate that it was illegible. I finally saw that I could order the pistol and send them an email with an attachment containing a scan of my license. That worked much better. After all of that, I ended up sending them a scan of one of the illegible scans but Classic Firearms notified me minutes later and the problem was quickly fixed. Having ordered from most of the major C&R websites, I can honestly say that, while all have given me very good customer service, Classic Firearms was second to none.

Cleaned the pistol in Mineral Spirits to remove the heavy oil (not cosmoline) and rubbed everything with CLP, then a second rubdown with Ballistol. This pistol looked "showroom quality". The only negative was that the bore was dirty beyond anything I've ever purchased with my C&R. I was able to finally get a few somewhat clean patches after a good scrub down lasting at least a half hour.

I took the pistol out to the range the following day. I must say that this is my favorite gun to shoot. At 25 yards I was able to put every round where it needed to go. The recoil is much less than I expected shooting the 85 Grain PPU FMJ. I must say this is an impressive pistol. I regularly shoot my Glock 23 and it is my everyday carry. If I felt better about the after-production, import-required safety installed on this pistol and if I thought this thing were "dropsafe", this would be something I'd carry daily. I love this gun...one of the best gun purchases I've ever made.
Like new 60+year old gun!

Just picked up my Tokarev from my FFL and the gun is in AWESOME condition considering it's 62 years old! After disassembly and cleaning I'm very impressed. It is better than I was expecting. Then why only four stars Andy? I ordered on Sunday night. By Tuesday afternoon, I still hadn't received an email saying that it had shipped so I tried to call. No answer. The machine said to call during regular business hours (It was 3pm). So I sent an email. No reply. Wednesday afternoon the same thing. Called - no answer. Emailed again - no reply. Around midnight a customer service rep finally emailed back saying that the order would "probably" be filled on Thursday. It was. It made it to my FFL on Saturday. My question is why did it take so long to ship the order? I would have no problem with the slow shipping if someone would have answered the phone or allowed me to leave a message to get back with me about what was going a on. Or answered my email less than two days later. The lack of communication made me wonder if I'd been taken. That being said the gun was in excellent condition as promised, and based on everyone else's five star ratings and fast shipping reviews, I'm guessing that my experience was the exception rather than the norm.

Classic pulled through again. Blueing was very good, barrel is bright and shiny. I was a little bummed that the grips didn't have the commie star, but oh well.

Ordered the Tokarev TTC on December 17. It was shipped through USPS on the 18th and arrived at my FFL on the 26th. Not bad considering the Christmas rush. Pistol overall is in excellent shape with a deep blue finish and nice barrel. This was a general pick and not hand select. The pistol included a lanyard ring but no lanyard in the box. Luck of the draw I guess. Great pistol for the price. Looking forward to visiting the range if the rain ever stops. Bought some of the Romanian Red Army Standard steel cased ammo to feed it. Thanks Classic for another great experience.

I bought my Tokarev firearm during the Black Friday week so shipping was a bit slower, which was expected. I paid for the hand select fee and I was not disappointed. I cleaned up the firearm and it was in remarkable shape for being manufactured in the 1950s. A few small wear marks were on the slide from holster wear but nothing noticeable. My only complaint is the big importer's mark on the slide but other than that it is flawless and would have liked to got matching magazine but I'm not sure how rare that is. I ran 200 rounds through this handgun with zero problem. I will be buying from Classic again when they get more C&R in stock.

Picked up my Tokarev today from my FFL. Couldn't be happier with the purchase. The gun has a very nice finish on it and is mechanically sound. I was very surprised at how well it feels in the hand. It feels like a natural shooter. All of the markings are clear and distinct. The Cugir factory mark is very visible, the date (mine was a 1953) is clear, and all other markings show up nicely. The magazines fit nicely and are in good shape. All things considering the leather holster is in good shape. Only problem would be a small tear in one of the leather loops for the cleaning rod. Though the loop is still together, it is slightly torn. Rod still holds in place just have to be gentle, but to be from 1953 it is in good shape. If the gun and holster could talk it would be interesting. My only regret is not already having some 7.62x25 waiting on the gun to arrive. I'm itching to get some rounds through this thing!

One of the Best SURPLUS PISTOLS!!!
Review by Holden on 12/11/2015
Quality
I am very impressed with the quality of this pistol
(No bluing wear, No rust, & No pitting), it is in excellent shape and the grooves and lands in the rifling are strong for a pistol from 1953 that's been shot a lot. These Tokarev's are pretty accurate for what their worth. My Tokarev has a natural point of impact that is naturally high, but that very common with these pistols because how they are zeroed from that factory.

Another nice thing about this pistol is that with mine there was no cosmoline, just some factory oil for storage. So there was no complete disassembly and elaborate cleaning needed.

The only complaint I have is that I wish all the import marks on these guns were on the right side of the frame above the grip because they are not easily seen. Mine the import mark is on the left side of the pistol on the slide. But the bluing on mine is very strong and sort of masks over the import mark. Also, I am sure you can ask for one were the Import mark is on the right side of the slide under special notes before you purchase.

Overall I am very happy and satisfied with this purchase and may even buy another one! Classic Firearms has a very user friendly website making it easy to find an FFL and getting the gun shipped fast!

Thank You, Classic

Review by RJ Hehl on 12/2/2015

Received my 1955 Tok a few days ago and waited to review it until I could get it on the bench and get her cleaned and polished. My first impressions out of the box was it was in overall excellent condition. The finish is intact with only very minor holster scuffs, and no scratches or dings on either the metal or grips. The leather holster was also in great condition if a little stiff, but its a (possibly) 60 year old flap holster so no suprise. A little TLC and it's back to being supple. Personally I've always liked the old flap holsters so I'm not planning to buy a newer type for this pistol.

Once I got the pistol disassembled and cleaned up I found a shiny bore with excellent grooves and no pitting, frosting, or rust. The rails and slide also showed little to no wear. The trigger is obviously no match trigger, but I have "modern" pistols with equal or worse, so that's pretty pleasing. Now if only that ugly safety didn't have to be installed for import. *sigh*

All in all a great buy for a small piece of history. I may just have to order a companion for it.

After a good cleaning they are nice. Be sure to disassemble it and clean it really good and run a brush through the barrel a few times as the oil and gunk will be in the barrel and make it look bad, it's not.

being that this was my first tokarev purchase there were a few things to learn. I love the shooting characteristics of the pistol. the one issue is the joke of a safety. I know it was not classic that did the conversion to overcome soviet "ingenuity" but once the pistol was taken down for cleaning the safety lost its tension. Having bought 5 firearms from classic I am very happy with their work, just be aware that it may not be a carry weapon as some in the comments suggest.

Overall I'm glad I made this purchase. Classic processed my order quickly. I ordered on Saturday and the pistol was at my FFL on thursday.

It is surplus so I did not expect it to look new but the pistol has a very nice finish on the outside and looks great.

Two negatives the borel was very dark and I wondered if it was in firing order. After brushing repeatedly with solvent it now looks passable. Second when I first received the pistol several times when dryfiring the trigger would not depress as if the saftey was on. I have not been able to repeat the problem. Not sure what the cause was I'm still investigating but I was not intending to use it as a carry gun. I haven't gotten to the range yet so I can't comment on how it fires

Overall I am very pleased with the pistol and with Classic Firearms

I purchased the Romanian TTC Tokarev for a range gun but I haven't had the opportunity to fire it yet. I did get to give it a good solid cleaning and I'm sure it won't disappoint. The tokarev came with a lot of oil on it and the barrel seemed very fouled. It all cleaned off rather easy and to my surprise there wasn't a blemish on it other than a scuff on the grip and a mark on the crown. The barrel was mirror bright and the blueing is deep.

The pistol is easy to field strip and feels good in the hands. Neither of the serial numbers on the magazines matched the pistol but both seem to function well. Also in the package was a well worn holster and lanyard. I would say is condition is a 3 out of 10 but I didn't have any expectations or use for it anyways.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the pistol and Classic Firearms. Thanks for the quick shipping and nice overall firearm.

Great gun and awesome price. In amazing condition. Shipped quick and fast. Have shot about 300 rounds so far with no big issues. Few stove pipes but that's from cheap ammo. Bulgarian surplus here is the best. Awesome price compared to VA gun shows where you will see them in poor condition go for 280 or more.
Very cool pistol
Review by CHRIS on 10/19/2015
Quality
I have yet to fire my new Tokarev, but I am very content with the condition of this firearm.
For the price, this is a very fair. I added hand select.

I can see where the reconditioning took place, and complete re-bluing. Whom ever worked on my particular pistol rushed while belt sanding the slide causing some front sight removal. That probably wont effect accuracy much at all. One side of the post is squared, and the other is rounded. The pistol was overly oiled in a good way, and that was far easier to clean up compared to cosmoline.

The pistol was test fired. I found brass residue on the slide. It seems like it wasn't cleaned well after it was tested, because the nice shiny bore had rust on the rifling. It cleaned off with a brush, and CLP. The bore is strong otherwise.

To those with larger hands, beware of" hammer bite". The web of my hand gets pinched between the hammer and slide. I have the same issue with all G.I. 1911 pistols too. (non beaver tail grip safety). This Tokarev gave me a nice pinch while checking the slide for function. This pistol is very smooth, and a great value. My holster is in very nice shape. I was worried about a replacement holster, but that is a moot point.
Cool gun for my collection. Im just gonna need to wear gloves when I shoot it.
BEST ONE I'VE EVER SEEN

I've bought dozens of Romanians over the last 10 years but I have never even seen one in the excellent condition as these are. The one delivered today is so good I decided to try my luck and ordered another one today. Fit and finish is excellent, black/blue was perfect without even a trace of holster wear, action solid, lockup tight, trigger crisp, magazines feel like they have new springs. Bore was shiny showing little use.

What can I say but wow! Thanks Classic for not letting me down. Paid the extra for hand select and the condition was for lack of a better term; excellent. It came wrapped in oil and packaged with an extra mag, cleaning rod and holster (no lanyard). If you are thinking of adding one to your collection- don't hesitate. I did for a while, but after the purchase and seeing this in person- no regrets. A smooth, clean shooter.
Love mine!

This is my first purchase from classic but all I can say is WOW and thanks.

This exceeded my expectations on a surplus handgun for sure. I did not pay the hand select fee but hard to believe one would be much nicer than this example! The numbers match on slide and frame. Deep blue finish looks excellent with only two very faint scratches that I see at all. Bore is clean an shiny with no pitting which is great. Mine was made in 1956 but would be hard to guess that without the year stamped on it. Nice bonus that the leather holster and lanyard were in very good condition. One of my mags showed slight surface rusting rest of gun was coated in a lot of oil but it was thin and easy to wipe away not at all like cosmoline.

Customer service was great as well so I all around pleased with my first purchase here.

Do yourself a favor; get yourself one of these while you can. They are very nice, very well finished. Pay the extra $20 to get the hand select, you'll get the best TT33 out there kids. Mine looks unissued, as do the magazines. Crisp light trigger, excellent feel in the hand.

It arrived within 2 days of ordering the gun. Took it to the range the next day and fired 100 rounds in windy conditions from 10-20 meters. Very impressive grouping and more powerful than 9mm or .380. Also, great for conceal carry if you have a CHL. I highly recommend it.
Great shape, I love this gun.
Review by Dave on 9/11/2015
Quality
I love this gun. Great shape, was full of oil but cleaned nicely. Has the feel of a 1903 or 1911 with an all steel build. Comes with an awesome leather holster. I honestly love how this gun feels. The ammo isn't the cheapest but still not bad (if you shop around you can get brass cased rounds for about $17/per 50).

My only gripe is that the one I received did not have a lanyard loop for the strap that comes with it. I asked around, searched online and so far they are VERY hard to find. There are the tt-30 pieces out there but THEY WILL NOT FIT. So I am down to either having one made or leaving as is. It's not a huge deal, but BUYER BEWARE that this could happen (unless maybe you opt for the cosmetic check?) It's not a huge deal but sucks that it's not complete. Still an awesome gun to have.
A fantastic value!

I didn't expect to be so pleasantly surprised when I received this gun! This is an outstanding value! The pistol was in almost-unissued condition, and only mildly cosmolined. My range officer son examined and cleaned it for me - and promptly borrowed it as his sidearm for hog hunting! I may have to buy a second one as my home defense pistol! Thanks, Classic, for making these beauties available to us!
Great pistol, great price.
Review by Drew on 9/7/2015
Quality
You'd hardly believe these pistols are 60ish years old. They look great, shoot great, and are accurate. Only qualm I had was the barrel when I first unboxed it. In the rifling, there was either residue from past rounds going through it or else there was very light surface rust in the grooves. I feared the barrel may have been pitted, but I cleaned it, fired it, cleaned it again and inspected it and the barrel looks great. I'm unsure how the process works when you guys get firearms in, but maybe punch the bore a time or 2 with an oily cloth? For the price, you'd be hard pressed to find a better handgun.

Also I wish that left handed holsters existed since I am left eye dominant and shoot left hand. But I can make the right handed holster work.

I bought my first TTC several months ago from Classic and was very impressed! So... I decided recently to buy a second one, and this one has made an even better impression. I tend to order during times of high volume (when the mosins came in or when the yugos arrived), but even with all the extra orders coming through, they still managed to get it to my house within a week of ordering it. The pistol itself is in amazing condition with over 90% bluing on both my orders, the mags are equally as nice, and the holsters were clean and blemish free. This is a solid buy and Classic is a great company to do business with.

With the small price drop, I decided to go ahead and get the Romanian TTC to partner with a Polish TTC I bought last year. I was not disappointed with this one. I received a really nice 1953 with matching numbers on the slide, frame and barrel. The blueing on the slide is not quite as nice as that on my Polish model but the barrel on this one was in much better shape. Both magazines that came with it are nice although if you fill them to capacity the last round does not load properly. I have taken to loading 7 instead. The holster has a shoulder strap and is in nice shape too. Haven't shot this one yet, but I am certain it will be a good shooter. Thanks Classic!

Review by kwqd on 7/19/2015

Very nice, excellent condition 1956 dated pistol. Numbers on slide, frame and barrel match. Neither of the magazines matched. Finish excellent, obviously fresh from factory refurbishment. Bore was dark and dirty (?), but cleaned up. Lands are very light, which I assume is normal for these pistols, since the barrel does no show much wear externally. Maybe not cleaned after test firing? Probably good to shoot as it is, since the rest of the gun seems to be very clean, but lots of oil inside and out.

Holster pretty rough with previous soldier's name and assuming service number in ink on the inside of the flap (Rata P13485). Lots of wear to inside and outside of holster, but seems to be a lot of life left in it. Came with lanyard, used, and cleaning rod, like new. Extra magazine in excellent condition as is the one in the gun.

Very happy with this pistol.

The 1st Romanian Tokarev I bought from Classic was immaculate and in NEW condition, so I took a chance and purchased a 2nd one....... and it too is like NEW and all matching except the magazines...... this one is a 1953 and even the inside of the barrel on this one was shiny before I cleaned it. Truly unbelievable. The 1st one I bought the barrel came clean but it took some cleaning.... well worth it... now I have 2 beautiful Romanian Tokarevs that are accurate and reliable as my Glock 17 but they have half the recoil. If you don't have one.... you are missing out on a darn good gun and a great piece of history. Classic Arms is Great!!!!!

Review by Wolf on 7/13/2015

This is the second TTC I have ordered from Classic. The first one was last year. Got it in August, Cleaned and shot it once, then gave it to my dad as a gift, so I had to get myself another. As usual, Classic is the best at shipping, hands down. Ordered this one on a Thursday night, had it by the following Monday. This second one appears to be in even better condition than the first, and that was without the extra charge for a hand pick. I would say it is at least 95%, with little wear on any of the surfaces. The grooves were a bit dark, but after some BlueGel and a brush, the bore was shining. Ordered the Romanian ammo and two extra mags, and got a chance to get to the range. The TTC functioned flawlessly, and was fairly accurate at 10 yards without doing any adjustments to the sights. I did have one mag though that when inserted allowed the slide to go forward without using the slide release. I am going to see if it may just be a little dirty still. Overall, I am pleased with this TTC,and Classic as usual is perhaps the best online place to get what you want.Just wish I had known they were going to lower the price this week, but I didnt want to miss the chance to get another one. For a fun gun to just shoot and enjoy, I would highly recommend getting one.

The pistol I received looks like it just rolled out of the plant back in 1953 when the pistol was made. There is not a scratch, rub mark, or any sign of any wear or tear on or in it. I did pay the extra $$ for a hand pick and I would like to thank the individual that did so, It was well worth it. The holster was in pretty good condition externally but on the inside it had writing from Individuals it had been issued to. Now I'm not complaining, to me that adds character and it give you something else to talk about besides the pistol..... But I don't know anyone who would want to do that....(smiles) . The only bad thing about this purchase was it did not come with the lanyard strap. Definitely a awsome buy.

I did not choose the hand pick option this time and boy did I get lucky all accessories included even the lanyard. The only down side, not all the numbers matched. Disappointing but not a big deal, the trigger and mags did not match. Based on price and condition you can not go wrong buying one of these Tokarevs form Classic!!!!!!!!!!!

The Torkarev 7.62 x25 Classic Firearms sent me is a beauty. It feels great in the hand, is in excellent shape, and fires very accurately. At 25 yards range, my Marine Corps nephew had no problem putting good groupings on the target.
I would recommend this weapon for your back up while rifle hunting or a woods gun for camping, or use at the range. I would not recommend it for self defense in an urban area due to the high velocity of the round. That being said, I prize mine as my back up to my rifle for hunting wild boar. The recoil is amazingly mild despite the power of the round. Damn fine weapon.

Pros:

Fast shipping, I got it 7 days after I bought it.

Gun is in ment condition, I mean I honestly think it has never been used, not even a scratch on the blueing.

Came with mags and a holster, the holster may look odd but it would actually work as a modern holster, be careful however as the holster covers the gun entirely and it may blur the lines between Open and Concealed carrier.

Fantastic preference and design.

Cons

Ammo is hard to find in my local area

It is a European gun so it is small for American hands, Custom Grips and Extended Magazine floor plate are likely a must if you have man hands.



over all I'd give this gun a 10/10

I'm very happy with the weapon I received from the guys (Gabriel) after having to send my first one back. There was a slide problem with the first one they sent that was probably curable with minor work. They sent me another one and did a pick from five which generally costs $20.00 for free. Being made in 1952 the pistol is only two years younger than I and it looks brand new. I looked real hard for wear.
Thank-you Gabriel and the people at Classic Fire Arms.

Shipping to my FFL was fast.
Finish on the gun is immaculate - you could tell me it's brand-spankin-new and I'd believe it. The bore is ridiculously clean and bright. If any rounds were ever fired through it, it had to have been less than a hundred. Gun came covered in cosmo, but that was expected. A bit of cleaning and a heavy oiling (to loosen up any cosmo I missed), and it's almost ready for a trip to the range. Both mags are in superb condition and the only flaw I could see was a bit of a burr on the internal portion where it was milled for the safety. A quick touch-up with a file and it was made smooth and crisp. The holster and lanyard that came with the gun were a bit worse for the wear though. The leather tab that secures the holster flap was torn and the lanyard doesn't have a hook on the end. Other than that, no complaints to be had here, folks. If you're looking for a Tokarev, this is the place to get it.

I purchased a handpick when these were on sale. Everything was matching except the magazines. Exterior blue finish was flawless. The plastic handgrips had a couple very small nicks.

I was a little concerned when I ran a patch through the barrel and found a bunch of brown stuff that looked like rust. It took about 15 minutes of cleaning to find a relatively nice barrel with a slight bit of frost. It must have been dried cosmoline.

I took it to the range and ran two full magazines. Second magazine gave me 8 shots in the 10 ring at 5 yards: better than my Beretta. The trigger seemed a little heavy so I measured it with my digital trigger pull scale. The scale maxed out at over 12 pounds. Yeah, it's heavy. I'm going to see if I can smooth it up a bit.

I want another one!

This was my first purchase from Classic Firearms and first of all, I would like to say how utterly impressed I was with the level of customer service and professionalism of the staff of C.F. My Tokarev pistol package came with an excellent quality handgun and accessories, except the holster arrived, (It was surplus, after all.), with a cut and tear on the spare magazine pouch. After sending back a picture of the damage and fully expecting a long process of returning the sent holster, and being charged shipping, to my pleasant surprise, the professional staff at Classic Firearms told me they would look for a better holster and send it, free of any charge to me. The replacement holster promptly arrived at my doorstep! Having shot the pistol now, it is a jewel of a bargain, functions flawlessly, hits right on the mark even with it's fixed sights, and I could not be happier.

This is a company that values it's customers, it's products, and it's reputation. Complete pros! They will definitely have me as a repeat customer.
Bit Disappointed
Review by Gunny on 3/31/2015
Quality
I decided to give one of these pistols a try and placed my order with Classic.
Took 7 days to receive from day of order to arrival.

Upon opening the box, first off, no owners manual or paper work of any kind.
However, manuals are easily downloaded from the Internet.

Pistol:

Was wrapped in oiled plastic bag, upon observation I found immediately
2 rub marks on top of slide where the bluing has been rubbed off.. This is easily spotted and should have been seen, as I chose to pay extra for the Hand Select option, which apparently was a waste of money, Classic didnt mind taking the money but failed to give me that added benifit when they pack the pistol. Rest of the pistol was in good condition and I found no other issues with it. The barrel is like new, crisp, sharp, lands and grooves.

Magazines:

2 magazine included and apparently used mags, but still in good condition
and loaded down with cosmoline, these needed a complete take down for cleaning. Cleaning rod included and in good condition.

Holster:

Now here is the sad part, the holster was well used and had 2 holes,
one in the bottom left corner of the magazine pouch holder and the
other at the bottom holder on side of holster where cleaning rod fits
it had a 1/4" tear. 2 lanyards were also included and in good condition.

Overall all, I'm a bit disappointed in the package, since paying for hand select
should of produced a bit better condition pistol. Ive had up to now very good luck with Classic Firearms so I was surprised that this time is wasn't the case.
The pistol performed very well at the range with only 2 FTF out of 50 rds fired.

Semper Fi

As Classic rated this batch "E" for excellent, I always reserve doubt when anyone rates ANYTHING an E, be it pizza or snowshoes..... Well, this Tok was an E PLUS! Even covered in commie cosmo oil, the FFL jockeys themselves commented on how pristine this pistol was! Cosmetically, not a mark ON it, all matching numbers. The bore took some scrubbing, but it cleaned up nicely. This pistol was shiny and looked unissued!
Took it out back for it's first firing foray. Oddly enough, I felt the handling difference in THIS Tok with different ammo, something I was not able to discern with the other 2 Toks I own.... A marked difference in handling between Red Army Standard ammo, PPU ammo and surplus ammo. Not a bad thing at all, mind you....
One minor problem... I got a bad mag. Looked like some drunk Bolshevik tried to hammer out a bent feed lip with a screwdriver and a rock. It misfed like crazy in all three Toks.
Now, THIS is why I love Classic and still do business with em all these years later... They sent me not one, but TWO replacement mags for it! These folks take care of their customers!!!!!

Happy with my purchase. Gun arrived in great shape, with thin oil throughout. One blob of grease in the hammer mechanism.

Slight holster-wear perhaps, visible on the left side of the slide.

Really clean barrel. The photo attempt of the inside shows some blue. That's TV-image reflecting THROUGH the clean barrel to the camera.

I used a little Mother's polish on the slide, and realized it was beginning to take the blue-ing off. Oops.

I'd recommend the purchase.

Thank you.
A perfect example of TTC history.
Excellent packaging. The condition is like-new.
Quality of the TCC is 100%.
Looking at the trigger, barrel, slide....I don't believe this weapon has been fired more than 100 rounds in its life !
I don't know how you do it...but keep on doing it !
Other purchases from Classis have been good....this one is great !
The holster has never been used as the factory packaging was still intact.
Thank you Classic.
Excellent service as always!!!

Romanian TTC Tokarev
Review by Nick on 3/24/2015

First off, wow! Excellent customer service. I ordered this the day before the $20 sale price was listed. Asked them about it, and boom, email notifcation of a $20 refund. It took about a week and a half for it to ship, but since I live in NC, it didnt take long to get to my FFL. It was covered in some kind of oil so be prepared for that, but after taking it apart and cleaning it, it's as good as new. The magazines are a little stiff to load, but im used to double stack so thats probably why. I havent had a chance to shoot it yet, but I have no doubt it will function without fail. Thanks again Classic!
It's A Beautiful Thing!

Another ALL Star performance by the No. 1 Firearms Internet dealer! The Usual quick order processing, shipping and great packing. Arrived oily-well protected-in a plastic bag/box and included the all the extra goodies pictured.

Exterior is 99++ % and once again, as we have come to expect, is at least as good as Brutus described it and with matching numbers.

Looking down the barrel was a little scary as the Stalactites were in abundance BUT a little over night soak in mineral spirits and the barrel/bore is as nice as the exterior.

This Tok runs smooth as silk (kinda like the two 92S's that I previously bought from Classic) and I wonder how Classic consistently not only gets the good stuff for us but it is the BEST of the good stuff on the Internet, at great prices.

Hat's off again for another 5 star performance.

A Huge thank you to the entire organization!!

I must thank you again for my, "Romanian TTC Tokarev Pistol - 7.62x25". You have delivered me a true quality piece of history that I will be proud to own. This is my (3rd) C&R purchase. I do not know how you folks seem to always get ahold of the very best Rifles & Pistols out of any of your competitors. When you say, “Excellent Condition” you mean it, and can count on it. To the people that hand select the firearms, always seem to pick one out as they were buying it for themselves. It is worth the extra $20 for it.
I couldn't be happier with the purchases I have made over the years... I thank you all at ClassicFireArms.com
Thank you,

I recently purchased aTT33 and the one I received was beautiful. The leather holster was broke in like your favorite baseball glove. I love the fact that I know this saw action and is a piece of gun history. After a nice cleaning, I went straight to the range and ran 100 rounds through it without a hitch, functioned perfect and at 25ft it was hitting 2" groupings out of the box! The slide was smooth and silky and locks open after last round. The trigger pull was medium light and smooth. My overall first impression was is that the TT33 is a excellent sidearm, well built and that it was a joy to shoot. I was able to easily obtain PPU Tokarev ammo at $21 for a 50rd box at my local gun shop, which surprised me since I live in a fairly small town. I can not say enough about how pleased I am with this pistol, it will be a gun range target shooting favorite. HURRY AND BUY ONE before the price jumps again!!
Excellent pistols for a great price
Review by Brandon on 3/12/2015

I purchased 2 of these about a month ago. Both pistols were in excellent condition for 60 yr old surplus pistols. Like many others who posted reviews, I found both bores were heavily fouled with some sort of crud which appeared to be rust. It took me some time to get them cleaned out and I noticed afterwards there was just the slightest amount of pitting inside the barrels, with one pistol just slightly worse than the other. Since these guns are as old as my father, I was not surprised or disappointed. Both frames have their finish almost fully intact and have very few, if any knicks or dings.

The one issue which I was a bit surprised about was the length of the recoil springs. When I field stripped them the springs popped out immediately after I removed the slide from the frame and I had a heck of a time getting the recoil spring back into the slide when reassembling them. I discovered I could easily get replacements springs so I decided to cut one down slightly to make reassembly easier.

I took them both to the range 2 weeks ago and fired 50 rounds between the two of them. I had 0 issues with them, though having not fired a pistol in a year, my aim was a bit off. Since I had no issues with the cut spring, I cut the second one down too.

All things considered I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Quality was as advertised and as my first surplus firearm purchase, better than I expected. This is my second purchase from classic and I'm planning on make more in the future.

Good shot grouping at 15 yards, and I even hit the bullseye a couple of times. Note, I'm not the best shooter around. This is a great pistol and I highly recommend it for any persons collection.

The gun looks great inside and out, it is very comfortable in the hand, and cycles rounds effortlessly. To my surprise I even find the lanyards to be quite functional offering a full range of motion they may not look "cool" but neither does dropping a gun. I have purchased a couple other rifles from another online gun store but my next purchase will be from Classic... I like how they seem to "cling to God and there guns" as someone infamous so eloquently stated a few years back.

I have wanted a tokarev for a long time now, and I finally bought one. I love it, it is smooth and low recoil. I paid extra for hand select ( which is the outside cosmetics ) and it was a beautiful gun. the only negative thing I could say is that the barrel was full of dark gooey gunk, but it is a surplus pistol, and functions better than I could have ever hoped. thanks classic firearms!

This is a great hand gun. Mine was made 1993. Arrived in excellent shape although the barrel had to be cleaned out. Took to range and put 100 rounds through it. No jams, no malfunctions. Sights fixed, simple and dead on. Bought this as back up gun for boar hunting. with 1700 fps and 550 lbs muzzle energy, I think this will do quite nicely. Holster was in good shape, as was the lanyard and the cleaning rod. fits nice to hand, great to shoot, recoil somewhat less than 8mm canik I had but that may be due to it being all metal without any plastic except maybe the handgrips.

Review by George on 2/14/2015

Glad l read the reviews and decided to order this pistol. The bore needed to be cleaned, and it was covered in oiled, but that just gave me a chance to get to know this gun. The appearance and finish was excellent. After cleaning the bore,it looked like a brand new gun. If not for some slight (very slight) wear on the slide rail, the pistol looked as if it had never been used. Have'nt fired it yet, but if it shoots as good as it looks, l can't see how it could get any better. Chambers as smooth as a baby's bottom. They say the Polish Tok is smoother,l don't see how it could. Guess l'll just have to order one and see when the good folks at Classic get another batch in. Like a kid on Xmas, l can't wait! My new one stop gun shop.

I waited to review after a range day. Pistol came covered in oil which was great. Cleaned off with de greaser. Excellent frame and grips. Barrel was dirty however after cleaning and scrubbing it is shinny and good bore. Hammer assembly had some rust which was removed. Took to range fired 50 round nose and 50 JHP. No issues. Felt recoil less than a 9mm and more than a 380. Rear sight was way off. Tapped sight after oiling and it moved no issue to center alignment. Now it is right on at 20 yards. Love the firearm.
Yep...Just like they said it was.

OK gang...Just finished cleaning and assembling my Tok TTC from Classic. Well...I gotta say, it is just like CLASSIC said it would be. Got it last night, stripped it down, dumped all parts except barrel in my ED's RED solution to soak overnight. Grabbed barrel, dipped it in ammonia and started scrubbing with barrel brush ..YUCK ..YUCK ..YUCK!! Grud, black goo..all kinds of stuff came out. So, dropped it back in ammonia for an overnight soak. Got up at 8, pulled barrel out and dumped in ED's RED for two more hours. Then began scrubbing with it submerged in solution and ...'you bet'...more crud and corruption came out. So,dropped it back in ED's RED and started one by one, pulling out parts and blowing them down with air, spray clean with WD-40, more air and got all parts clean as a whistle. Back to barrel...more scrubbing with it submerged and finally quit. Pulled it out, blow it down, WD-40 and a swab through barrel...saw just a bit of brown stuff..one more oily swab and all is clean white. And, barrel is now 'shiny' clean. "GOOD" rifling....OK boys,,,they did say 'dark bores'...You knew it when you bought it because they 'told you so'...BUT BUT BUT... She cleaned up really nice. And...I just spent a few minutes looking at the rest of the pistol... and...absolutely but absolutely NO ONE SCRATCH..NOT ONE "WEAR POINT" where bluing is gone. Yes..a 100% perfect coating. The pistol, (save barrel) is PRISTINE. I did ask for 'hand picked' and I believe I got what I paid for. I now have 8 ea. TT's. This is the best one (save barrel) that I own. BUT...that old barrel did clean up very nicely. I bought one that won't shoot, (not from Classic) because the firing pin is too short. I bought one, (not from Classic) that the magazine won't seat and 'hang fires'... I think, the manufacturer made these, tested them, (say 50-60 rounds) then put them up without cleaning the barrels. I think this as the trigger group wear is so slight. I mean it looks brand new and has very little of the bluing wear at the side where the slide comes by it. So kiddos... I got what I paid for, I got what they said I would get, thing is PRISTINE, (save barrel), and the barrel is in, my opinion, VERY GOOD condition after some serious cleaning.

I just might buy me another one. So, 'Classic dun gud by me!"

I paid an extra $20 for a hand pick from a group advertised as "excellent." Just picked the gun up today and I must say, the condition was not excellent, it was NEW. Perfect. Except for two barely perceptible dings, one on each grip panel, the gun was beyond expectations. ZERO holster wear. The barrel shone like a gem. The finish was 100%.

I purchased a similarly touted CZ82 from another outfit and it looked like it had been dragged through a gravel pit. Hat's off to Classic Firearms.

Was given to me as a gift and I am so glad I have friends that gift like this! Cleaned her and then went out and put a few rounds through her. First, simple breakdown and clean. Second, solid piece of work, not light and not too heavy...just right feel in my hand. I let my 14 year old son pop off a few and he REALLY like it. A little bit of a kick. It is a fun gun to shoot and the historical value is what I really like about it. Next time I go shoot, I will take video and post.

This was my second order from Classic Firearms. My first was a Mosin-Nagant M-44. I opted to pay extra for the hand select which was well worth it. The pistol arrived a few days later double boxed and packed in a baggie. It was covered in light oil. Upon inspection, the pistol looked new (for a nearly 60 year old pistol). The bore was clean and there was no exterior wear. The grips had a couple of small imperfections in the plastic but this could have been done by the importer who installed the safety. The holster and magazines which came with the pistol were in good shape as well. This was a great purchase and a great transaction.
Excellent external condition, shoots fine, lots of crud in barrel
Review by Jim on 12/31/2014
Quality
Used my C&R and the TTC came on time and as advertised (wrapped in plastic with lots of oil, spare magazine, cleaning rod, holster and two lanyards). Chose hand select for appearance and the external of the gun was at least very good and probably excellent. The bore was absolutely awful, like some of the other reviewers have said. I have never seen so much crud in a barrel (could not even see the rifling, and chunks of junk everywhere inside), and the first patch was rust brown. After numerous passes with solvent, brush, patch, and bore snake viper, the bore cleaned up relatively well. It shoots pretty well using the Rumanian Red Army ammo (2-3" groups at 25 ft, two handed), so the original barrel (the serial numbers match) is still doing its job. I did get a couple failures to lock back on empty (2 out of 4 first magazines). All in all, a good deal on a gun I bought for fun and to have a Korean War era Soviet bloc pistol (made in 1952), without expecting too much. No complaints with Classic and the service provided. Only suggestion would be to ship it with a bore flag...but that's a personal preference.

I ordered two of the Romanian Tokarev pistols. I received both in just over one week. I had to wait several weeks to get ammo. When I finally got the ammo I headed to the range.
One of the pistols worked fine, the other one had a problem. The first round fired fine, the slide came back far enough to pick up the next round but not far enough to lock the hammer back. I tried several times and each time the hammer would not stay back.
I emailed Classic and detailed the problem. The next day they emailed a pre paid shipping label to return the pistol. Less than one week I later I had the replacement pistol. The finish on this one is way better than the one I returned.
This one fires fine.
Classic customer service is top notch. I would order from them any time.

ANOTHER Great Reason to buy a Tok!
Review by Big John/Georgia on 11/12/2014
Quality
I reviewed my 2 Tok purchases a couple of years ago here at Classic, but as a new dimension to this pistol revealed itself, I felt it important to share with the folks on here for further insight.
I've found that WOMEN REALLY cotton to this pistol! My wife and both daughters learned to shoot with my Romy Toks. and they loyally LOVE them. Here's why.....
They are bone-easy to handle and operate, and they're reliable as sunrise. Women love this pistol because the grip on it is on the smaller side. Maybe commies were simply born with small hands, I don't know..... But the smaller grips are very amenable to the American female hand. They can manage the grip on this gun better than others, and thus can control the recoil better than they can on most OTHER pistols, whose grips are traditionally built for MALE hands. If you have a lady friend or female loved one you want to introduce to shooting, this pistol is very training-friendly to that end.
They also love it because although probably unintentional by the designers, this pistol CC's VERY well, because it is so SLIM. It fits into a purse and conceals just as handily as it does in a conceal holster.
Neither Tok I own has EVER jammed or stove-piped on us in 2 1/2 years of mucho useage, even when I've stuck some really bogus Polish crap in them with cracked necks! Like the AK-47, it eats ALL food, regardless of quality. It is entirely made of military-grade steel, the exception being the grips. No polymer ANYWHERE in this gun. It will outlive US, by design.
The ladies deserve every bit of the stopping power in a pistol as WE do. That said, I will not leave defense pieces in .25 caliber for them to wield, just because they're girls. If a scumbag breaks in while I'm away, every lady in the house can competently handle the Toks, and do what must be done.
I use one every single day as a CC piece. Like the AK, this pistol is known for turning cover into concealment in a real hurry! My original reason for buying one? I saw a video of a Tok absolutely SHREDDING a Toyota Forerunner brake drum. Just blowing big chunks out of it like it was made of paper..... The 7.62x25 bullet it fires is basically a shortened rifle round, and the surplus ammo for this gun fires at an average of 2000 FPS. Compare that to the average .45 round, which fires at 895 FPS, and is a much tougher horse to control recoil-wise for women. The Tok round also shreds level III Kevlar like wonder bread.
God forbid, you ever have to draw on another human being. But if I do, or the ladies of the house do, I'd rather we had MORE ballistic mustard than less at our disposal......
One nice Tokarev!
Review by Wolf on 11/11/2014

First I have to say Classic has the fastest shipping. Ordered the gun on a Saturday morning, it shipped on Monday, and arrived on Wednesday. I didn't pay for the hand select, so I was hoping for a decent one. Well, to my surprise, the Tokarev I got is in great condition. No holster wear at all, and the blueing was great. The bore was a bit dark in the grooves, but after a little Blue Wonder, and a brush, it was spotless, and the rest of the gun needed only minor cleaning. As for shooting, I picked up a couple of boxes of S&B ammo from a local source, and headed to the range this past weekend. The Tokarev is definitely fun to shoot. Recoil is minimal, it does have a nice bark, and I'm sure once I have a little more time with it, accuracy will not be too bad either, as at 10 yards, with no adjustments to the sights, was still able to keep a nice pattern. This is my third purchase from Classic, and it will definitely not be my last. Thanks again Classic, first class all the way.
Very Happy :-) :-)

Romanian TTC Tokarev Pistol - 7.62x25 

Well, I hate to be the one to lower the evaluation score but my opinion differs from most of the other reviewers. While I was pleased to make my first purchase from CF, this firearm did not meet my expectations. I opted for the "hand select" hoping that doing so would ensure one of the best specimens available, but what I received instead was a marginally refinished Tok. The pistol that I received showed a significant variation in the blueing on the slide, evidence of the original finish near the magazine release where the new blueing did not "take", and a very poor bore. After a through cleaning of the bore I found that the barrel rifling was heavily worn and lightly pitted. The holster was in VERY poor condition, the tip of the cleaning rod was bent, and while I did receive two lanyards- the leather belt displayed in the picture was not included. Despite this, I accepted the package and signed for it hoping that a call to customer service could possibly rectify at least the holster issues with a possible swap. Instead what I got was essentially a "too bad" response from the dismissive representative.

In summation- The pistol was what I'd call "average" and the accessories were below average. I'm happy to have been able to include this unique piece to my collection, but if you're a serious collector or someone who is a stickler for detail and quality I'd suggest that you keep realistic expectations. This item is by no means was a "5" as so many have described it and I'd save your $20 and skip the hand select option.

Very Impressed

Upon receipt of the package and initial inspection. The Tok was definitely in EXCELLENT condition. I suspect unissued as there was zero bluing wear on it. The contents were packaged well, Tok was covered in the usual heavy oil, the accessories were all there and in great shape. After a complete disassembly and clean up with mineral spirits and hot water. Visually inspected all parts, lubed and re-assembled. Shot 4 mags worth of ammo down range (S&B noon-corrosive),picked up my brass re-cleaned the firearm. Immediately logged back into to Classic Firearms and ordered another one!

As this was my first purchase from Classic Firearms, I didn't know what to expect when I opened the box and inspected my Tokarev pistol. Any fears I may have had were put to rest when I saw the as advertised, truly excellent condition of the pistol. (I did check the hand select box). It really is in like new condition, and I can't wait to try it out. I saw other Tokarevs advertised elsewhere for not too much less money and in lesser condition, but do yourself a favor and pay the extra bucks for this one. You won't be dissappointed. The holster that came with the gun is in very good used condition, and with a little leather cleaner will look great.

When they say the pistols are rated as excellent condition they are not kidding. Mine looks like it was hardly used and very well maintained. It is a flat shooter and very easy to conceal carry. Chronographed some polish ammo headstamped 1953. 1405 fps to 1425 fps, that's a tight range! It just sucks that the ammo is expensive, but, it's worth it.
Another awesome deal

Well got my Tokarev from my FFl today. It was soaked in oil and dripping out of the box. Cleaned it all up and I think it is new other than a test fire. Functions well. Has a hard trigger pull. I love it. The holster looks new other than sitting in storage for years. Has no marks inside indicating a pistol has ever been in it. Was so tight I about broke my fingernail off stuffing the pistol in it. Hope it stretches out some. I put some pledge on it and it looks nice and shiny. Don't plan on a quick draw out of that holster. So basically I am very happy with the entire purchase, love the gun and the holster. Thanks again classic. Wish I had bought two more.
Perfect condition!

My Romanian Tokarev pistol and accessories arrived today, ordered it three days ago. The gun is simply outstanding and pristine. I don't think this gun has been fired or handled, looks factory fresh. The blueing is the best I have seen on a surplus gun considering it was made in 1953! The gun has all matching numbers and holster, extra magazine, lanyard loop are in excellent condition with no wear. The holster has options to use as shoulder or belt holster, nice option. Don't pass them up, get one while you can. Classic Firearms customer service is first class operation.

There is something wonderful about opening the box and finding a brand new sixty year old gun inside.The only blemish was some very slight pitting where the barrel was in contact with the barrel bushing,(for sixty years!)-hardly worth mentioning. No hiccups at the range. The folks at Classic are really nice and provide great service.

What a little thumper! And solid hits right on the point of aim....loud too...very very sweet pistol, hate to admit it but I might like it a little better than my 1911...and the hammer group that comes out as one unit/block? Very ingenious....gotta buy a few more when Classic gets them back in stock....this has got concealed carry written all over it...

The FFL told me "You're going to like this one"
and he was on the money. The quality of the Romanian Finish was Coltesque. Literally Colt Dark Blue. The slide and Trigger were simply perfectly melded to the frame. I was in awe of the Romanian workmanship. Just in awe. These will go down as the best of all Toks. Better than Russian, Polish or Yugos. I don't know if the East Germans made any, but the Romanians will be hard to beat. I don't think Colt, Smith and Wesson or Ruger could do any better. This one feels like a Sig its so well done.
Exellent Buy.

WOW, I was very pleasantly surprised at the condition of this pistol. It may have been made in 1953, but looks brand new. This is my second 7.62x25 weapon, my other is the PPS43c.

Received my Romanian TTC Tokarev yesterday (yes,on Sunday). The gun was almost perfect. The bore was shiny, and the bluing was great ( a couple of minor scratches from storage on the left side of the slide was the only defect. A little cold bluing took care of that). Since my order had been delayed due to Classics Holiday high volume, I had occasion to contact them by E-Mail, Response was fast and helpful. I would recommend Classic Arms, and the Romanian Tokarev to anyone.

nearly new 1956 Tokarev
Review by Henry on 12/21/2013
Quality
The TTC came yesterday and I just got back from the range: if you don't have one, get one ASAP. Mine came with the hand-select option and an extra Taiwanese magazine. Aside from the long wait due to backed up holiday orders, this was a highly gratifying experience. The pistol and mag were well-packed. The Tokarev looks like it could be three or four years old. The grips have mild wear, the frame and slide look new, and the barrel hasn't seen much use. The rifling is sharp with no sign of corrosion. The added safety catch thumbs off and on without breaking my hold on the grip. The import markings aren't huge and fairly out of the way on the frame.
The sights are the standard (poor) military version. To bring out the sight picture, I painted a white U around the rear sight notch and after squaring off the back of the front sight, a dot of red paint there. It makes a difference. All the internals came clean and oiled and look new, so other than getting used to the disassembly and reassembly there was nothing tedious about preparing it to shoot.
For a full-size pistol, the TTC is relatively light and the narrow slide and short grip make it easy to conceal. In firing, the grip is still long enough to get a good two-handed hold. Recoil is quite manageable and the trigger action is quite good. I got good combat accuracy from this gun, which was all I was looking for.
The Tokarev has an assertive report and an impressive muzzle flash, but for such a powerful handgun, it's no wrist-breaker and I could shoot it all day.
Thanks to the folks at Classic Firearms for selling me this fine and somewhat overlooked hard-hitting, fun-shooting historical firearm.

What a gun for $200! My first pistol purchase and my first gun from Classic and I'm already hooked. 60 year old gun and looks like it was barely used. had a little wear on the slide and two small chips on the grips, but what can anyone expect from a surplus gun? I am very please with the gun, functions great so far, just waiting on ammo to take it out and test it further. Not caked in cosmoline, a good cleaning in mineral spirits and some oil and it moved like new. Great gun for the money! Highly recommended
Near mint condition; extremely well pleased
Review by Gary on 12/18/2013

I ordered three Romanian TTC pistols, each with the hand select upgrade. Classic Firearms shipped my order the same day I placed it. It arrived just a few days later. Each pistol was in new condition and appeared to be unfired. The only blemishes -- and they were very minor -- were small areas of lighter bluing on the left side of the slides, probably from resting on their left sides in storage for sixty years. These small, lighter streaks in the blueing were easy to touch up with cold blue, and are now barely visible. These pistols are a pleasure to shoot. The 7.62 X 25 Tokarev is a very hot round, yet the recoil is very light. The safetys work very smoothly, and the trigger feel is quite good on two of the three pistols. The third one was quite tough as received, but in working on it, it has now been lightened-up acceptably. I am very pleased with the service received from Classic Firearms, and also with the quality of these three pistols. Order without hesitation; you won't be disappointed and I don't think you hope for a better deal. I will be ordering again!
Excellent pistol, especially for the money!

I was on the fence about buying one of these due to how clunky and chunky it looks. Though after watching several YT videos over a few weeks, and coming to Classics site to look at them.....then the $199.99 and it was the last nail in the coffin and I bought on. Even right out of the box with cosmo on the slide it's still slick. Take it down and put 10-15min worth of cleaning with some rags, solvent and CLP and shes slick as snot! Trigger creeps but overall it is NOT bad! It has good weight, really good balance overall and feels good in the hand. Excellent shooter and a great fun little addition to my milsurp collection! A+!!

Incredible piece of history
Review by tracjac on 12/9/2013

I am new to collecting military surplus guns and was somewhat reluctant to purchase a used firearm that is 60 years old. l mean, how could a pistol that is that old and used by the Romanian Army for many years still have any life left in it? My Tokarev arrived in incredible condition. l would say the blueing is at about 95% condition with only 2 very small places on one side of the slide with a little wear. Other than that the bluein is perfect. lt is a very deep, highly poloshed blue too. The frame to slide fit is very nice and the trigger is so muh crisper and loghter than many of my 1911s that cost four times the price of the Tokarev. This is by far the most gun l have ever boight for the money. The only problem is findin ammo for it. l can't wait to shoot it but l guess l will have to.
Completely satisfied

Good gun, bad shipping
Review by Christian on 12/4/2013
Quality
A quick overview of this TTC shows everything mechanically to be in great condition. I really like this gun. I am however quite disappointed with how the gun was packed for shipping. It was packed loosely in a cardboard box, which in itself would have been ok if it weren't for the fact that Class Firearms tossed in the extra magazine into the box with no wrapping whatsoever. So the magazine and the gun were flopping and sliding all around during shipment. I also understand this is an old gun and therefore will not be in perfect shape, however I am almost positive that the wear marks on the left side of the slide are a direct result of the magazine rubbing on the gun during transit. This isn't a big deal, but when you are paying an extra 15 dollars for a hand select option, I was not pleased.

The pistol looks almost perfect. A couple of minor scuffs on the slide and a tiny ding on the front sight. On the range it shot perfectly. With Winchester ammo it shot tight groups and is great fun to shoot. Just need more vintage magazines. I didn't buy extras with the pistol as I was reading that they were new from Taiwan or somewhere.

Let me start by staying this is my first gun I acquired through classic fire arms and unfortunately not a good experience. I PAY FOR THE HAND SELECTION OF THE BEST 5 and it wasn't a great deal.

The tokarev I received from Classic was simply stunning. The pistol looked like it had come right off the assembly line in 1953. Virtually no rust with small spots here and there but nothing that could not get taken care of. Blueing was about 99% my FFL thought it was a new gun. Wish I had ordered recently when they dropped the price down to $199 but I still feel I got a good deal. Bought a Mosin 3 months ago and that was excellent as well. I only buy my surplus firearms from Classic because I know they only sell quality stuff.

I just received my TTC. And I have to say Classic Firearms has made my day again very nice. For being made in 1953 it looks bran new. The factory safety add on was very hard, but after breaking the pistol down and removing the safety the problem was very noticeable there was a metal slither left behind from the drill bit. Just took a little file to it and very smooth now. Packing was professionally done. Great job guys. I think I am going to get two more one for the wife and another one for me. And always big shot out to Ben. God bless you.....

Review by Mike on 11/7/2013

I ordered my Romanian TTC Tokarev pistol online and within 2 days it was at my FFL ready to be picked up, now that's fast ! I got it home and opened the box, I was very happy with what I saw. I paid the $ 15 for hand select and all things considered I got a very nice pistol with a nice shiny bore. Bluing was 100% and all numbers matched. I felt I got lucky and got a pistol with the small import stamp on the frame and not the big one on the slide, also got the "star" grips I hoped for. The only "defects" was a hair size scratch on the slide, barely noticeable, and the front sight right corner was some how rounded off . All in all this was in excellent condition for being made 60 years ago in communist Romania, and is what I expected. I would say these guns are being refirbished here in the states when the safety is being added, as the import engraving is blued over with the rest of the finish. Fired 4 mags worth at the range and ran 100%, it hit about 3" high at 10m and grouped nicely. I have wanted a tokarev for years and glad I jumped on this deal. Classic really impressed me with my first ever purchased. -Thanks !

I bought one of these locally, but its Romanian and built in 1953 so I thought I'd review it here.

I love this gun. It has never malfunctioned on me ever. I'm a fan of the grips, a lot of people don't like them but this is the second most comfortable gun I've ever held, the first being a 1911. I even like the location of the safety. I think its right were it should be. Reproductions and norincos have them higher and farther back.

I trust this enough to carry it whenever I don't need to conceal.
Excellent trigger!!

This pistol was my first purchase from Classic Firearms and I am very happy with it. I have another TTC that was made in the Radom plant that is not near as nice.

Considering the quality and price--Buy one before they are gone. Tom

1st: haven't shot it, my local shops are out of ammo. That being said, this pistol looks like it sat in a draw for 50 years. It looks brand new. I stripped it, cleaned it (which is didn't need) and lube it up and can't wait o to get some shells. It is really nice. I did have it picked for 15 bucks but considering the quality of what I was sent I would do it again in a second. If you're thinking of picking one of these up don't wait. If it shoots as good as it looks I'll get a couple extra to put away.

I owned a pair of Toks in the 90s, an original Soviet 43 vintage unit and a Norinco. Both, unfortunately fell victim to a burglary. This is the first chance I've had to replace those venerable old guns, and boy was I pleasantly surprised. The originals had no "safety" other than the half cock. The Norincos was so bad about biting the shooter that I removed it. This unit's is a delight. Well placed and functional. Mine is flawless, dated 1953, and smooth as glass. You cant go wrong with this unit.

Review by Mike on 8/4/2013

We have a war prize Tok TT33 my father bartered for with American cigarettes and Hersey chocolates from a Soviet soldier he met when WWII ended. It is still a fine pistol to shoot to this day. When a found a 20 year younger version of the same I couldn't pass it up.
I paid extra for the hand select. I believe it was worth it. What arrived looked brand new. Not a scratch or wear mark anywhere. It is highly accurate and easy to clean/field strip. Though made in 1953 the clip from our 1937 war-prize works like a champ in the new one. The after market new clips we bought work great also. All rounds go bang with every trigger pull. Have yet to have a FTF, FTE or a stove-pipe.
The only caveat I will pass along is the ammo is very difficult to find. There are few suppliers and even less inventory. I would have given a 5 star rating if ammo was cheap and available.
Thank You Classic FireArms

Romanian TTC Tokarev
Review by Matt on 7/19/2013
Quality
Not my first purchase with Classic, but it is the first firearm I've bought through them. Shipped fast - Ordered 07/15 and picked it on 07/18.
Overall it is in excellent condition. The only "blemish" in the finish being around the lanyard ring; nothing serious especially considering its 60 years old. Neither the barrel, nor magazine are as pretty looking, but again that's expected. The bore however is bright, shiny and mirror-like. It doesn't look like very many rounds have been put through it. Everything functions well; slide movement is very smooth.

What was odd was that it has Polish hand grips. I'm not certain if that's common? A little disappointed in that since I paid the extra $15, but if it was down to the condition of the finish, or the hand grips I'll take the nicer finish.

In all, I'm again quite satisfied with Classic and wouldn't hesitate to do business with them again. Thanks guys!

This is my first purchase from Classic FireArms.
Used my C&R License and got my order in 3 days. It would have been 2 days except for the 4th of July is a holiday.
The TTC has got to be new. If made in 1953 can be new. Not a scratch or wear mark anywhere. Field stripped and removed a small amount of cosmoline. I am sure I was the first to push the clip that holds the slide lock back. There was no evidence this had ever been done before.
The 7.62x25mm Tok rounds carry a good wallop. I am sure the bite is worse than the bark. The rounds I used from PPU are rated with more ft. lbs. of energy than a 9mm.
Extra clips are available online.
I would definitely buy from Classic Firearms again.

Well It has taken me a while to post my review of this pistol but I gotta say. I was sure impressed with it. this is my fourth gun I have bought from Classic and I am never disappointed. I opted for the hand select and extra mag but the coolest thing about the pistol I received is that i don't think that it had ever been fired. When I broke it down for the first time I put the first signs of wear on the case by sliding the retaining pin out and i know if it had been used before that would have already been there. The bore of the gun was perfect as well and boy was I surprised at how well it shot. Mine was very accurate and definitely has the punch to it. Would not want to be on the receiving end of this thing for sure! To sum it up is is a great gun and a great buy. Thanks again Classic for another outstanding gun!

This is the second TTC I have purchased. This one looks like new, with a nice blue finish and shiny bore. I was hoping to get one without the added safety, like my first one, but this one has it. Haven't shot it yet, but expect it to be stone reliable, and pretty accurate.

I was impressed with classic firearms expediency in delivering my Tokarev. The quality of the firearm is equally impressive. The Tokarev I received looked as though it had never been fired. I spent a few hours stripping the gun down and removing the cosmoline. After that I had the action cycling like a well oiled machine. Take special care to remove all of the cosmoline and you will not run into problems like some of the complaints I have heard online. I will buy from classic arms again and recommend it to my friends.

I have made several purchases from Classic before so my expectations were high. Once again I was not disappointed. My Romy Tokarev shipped promptly and arrived in excellent (near new) condition. Finish of metal parts, grips, magazines, and barrel were all excellent. Only one or two very slight wear marks on the slide edge from holstering were visible and were the only thing that would distinguish this pistol from a factory new one. As said, I have made previous purchases from Classic and will undoubtedly make more in the future. Great place to do business!

This was my first purchase from Classic Firearms. I purchased the Romanian Tokarev Pistol as a backup for home defense. Pistol arrived very quickly. After opening the box the gun looked almost new. No scratches but a little rust behind the hammer. I disassembled and cleaned which removed the rust. Looks brand new now. Plan on going to the range this weekend. Wanted to order extra magazines but they are out of stock. Plan on buying a few once restocked. Overall very pleased.

I ordered this gun just over a month ago and I've had such a good time with it that I totally forgot to review it. I chose the "Hand Select" option at checkout and boy was it worth EVERY PENNY!!. This gun I received was in immaculate condition! There is not a single scratch, ding, scarpe, faded blueing, or signs of use at all. This is an excellent piece of history and a damn good shooter. Again, it is worth every penny.

Have to go with 4 stars, While i paid for hand pick, the one I got had the bluing scraped off on the left slide and it looks like some pitting under the blue on the other side. Definitely not hand picked unless they are at the bottom of the selection. Great shipping and for the money still a great pistol. Just disappointing after reading some of the other reviews. Win some, lose some.

Review by WILLIAM on 4/12/2013

This is the second of four guns purchased to date from classic. The TTC has better feel than my CZ52 and has the big plus of the mag drop button. Single stack and slim makes it a good carry. Sportsman's guide sells a 7.62x25 hollow point jig for those inclined to DIY. Paid for hand select and gun appears to be unissued or very lightly used. It is as if someone opened a time capsule from 1956. Chamber walls are twice as thick as the CZ, so no doubt Fedor Vasilievich Tokarev's Romanian stepchild can stand up to all the heat of whichever milsurp ammo you can get a hold of . Though some people like the milder 7.63x25 mauser parent cartridge for range use, and serbian 7.63 is available brand new. Just wish there was a cure for Mosin fever, which classic firearms seems all to willing to encourage.

Nice little shooter for the money! Mine arrived quickly and in great shape. Shot just fine, but I did clean the heck out of it first. I bumped the rear sigjht to get it dead on at 25 yards and it's very accurate. Sights are supposedly "non adjusable". No problem for a little hammer and small punch with a rag over it. Great deal for the money. Take your mags apart and clean and oil them before you shoot. I actually ran a file down the inside lip of my magazines while I had them apart after a couple FTF. Works great now. I keep it in the truck :)

It can be a bit of a leap of faith to purchase a used product on line from a retailer that you have not done business with. The bluing on the gun was 99% outstanding, and more than I could have hoped for - and I didn't even select the hand pick option. I like the gun so much I put an order in for the Yugoslavian Tokareve.
Keep up the good work!
Great Gun, Get It!
Review by John on 4/4/2013

This gun is incredible. The only reason I give 4 stars is because one of the plates came of the grip. Otherwise, it fires smoothly for such an old pistol and looks brand spanking new. You will be in awe that a piece of history you're firing or just looking at as a shelf piece was offered for such a low price. Classic, once again, offers stellar products and customer service! I want the Yugoslav version next... I am waiting for my excellent/very good Yugoslavian Mauser to arrive before purchasing the Yugo version, Tokarev. It's my next buy!

But trust me on this, your jaw will drop at the site, feel, and history for the price you pay when it arrives. Ran 50 rds. of corrosive ammo from the 1970's through it and had 0 FTF's! Buy this Romanian Tokarev and you likely won't disappointed! You'll be astonished as I was!

The Classic description was no lie. I paid for the hand select.
The weapon was almost perfect nice bluing and the bore was mint. Took it to the range and cycled 50 rounds. it functioned flawlessly and I got some nice groupings (6 inch) at 20 yards. Although I will not walk around with the gun in battery, If ammo ever becomes avaialble again with hollow points this will become my hunting side arm. It is a nice neat peice of history built when I was in 1953.
My new everyday carry!
Review by Sammy Zen U on 3/24/2013
Quality
I bought this pistol as a companion piece for my PPS 43c. It seemed like a no brainer as they are chambered in the same caliber. Even though I should have expected it from the reviews I was still surprised at the quality of the pistol when I received it. Once the cosmoline was removed I could find no visible wear to the bluing or visible chips/scratches on the grips. Mine was dated 1952 and the action was flawless, the bore was mirror shiny and it felt great in the hand. Some people complain about the grips or add Hogue grips, I thought it felt perfectly natural in my hand. It shoots well, is reasonably accurate from self defense distances and has less recoil the my 40 cal. pistols.

This gun has an extremely slim profile making it's perfect for concealed carry. We are talking Magnum pressures here! I have found a source for loaded ammo with an 85 grain Hornady XTP hollowpoint that pushes out of the barrel at @1700 fps! Most impressive! The only modification I have made was to add a dot of white nail polish to the back of the front post sight. This has made for easier sight acquisition.

I carry IWB in a quality leather holster and honestly I forget I have it on. I don't even mess with the ridiculous safety that was added on. I use the originally intended half cock safety. With it in half cock you can't rack the slide or pull the trigger and you couldn't force the hammer to strike the firing pin with a sledgehammer. Use the added on safety without the half-cock though and you ask for trouble. It is not a firing pin block.

When it's time to shoot, pull the hammer the rest of the way back, pull the trigger and........BANG! Just as Fedor Tokarev intended!

This pistol is my new everyday carry!

Can't wait to see the M44 carbine I ordered!
Great Shooter!
Review by Charlie on 3/23/2013
Quality
Having just received my C&R FFL, this was my first collectible firearm purchase. I wasn't sure what to expect. I opted for the hand select to get the best condition I could. The pistol arrived with a light coating of cosmoline and cleaned up nicely. The finish is very good to excellent with a few rub marks on the left side of the slide. Most importantly, to me, the bore is in absolutely excellent condition with mirror brightness and not a speck of pitting or roughness.

I couldn't wait to shoot it, so after some cleaning up I took it to the indoor range. Even though the sights are minimalistic and non-adjustable, I was very pleased with the accuracy. The windage is spot on and it shoots a tight group if I do my part. I plan to put a little dab of white paint on the front sight blade to help with sight acquisition.

The pistol is very comfortable in the hand and recoil is very manageable, helped in part I'm sure by the weight and length of the firearm.

I have never seen a pistol fling brass so far as this one does! So if you want to keep your brass and shoot outdoors you may need a "spotter" just to keep track of where it lands!

The magazine is a little worn and sometimes it a bit difficult to remove. All in all, however, I'm quite happy and it is just plain fun to shoot.

The pistol feels tight with no slop or play. My biggest surprise was how good the trigger is. I did not expect such a smooth pulling trigger with this crisp a release.

I'm glad I made this purchase.

Received the "Tokarev" Pistol last week, slathered in cosmoline (seen a lot worse), cleaned said pistol, checked her over (good bore,etc.)...Paid extra for "hand select" couple of nicks, but not bad. No 5 stars this time though, grip is loose on one side, doesn't come off mind you, just a little bit annoying while shooting. (took off to see if I could rectify the situation) but to no avail...Plowed through 75 rounds without a hiccup, brilliant! Report and flash are like one of the "Bismarck's" cannon, accuracy also decent. Groovy! So simple a Hamster could field strip it! Like I said previously "Love Eastern Bloc stuff!"

This is my second firearm purchased from Classic. Just like the first, a CZ 82, my TTC is in excellent shape. This order took a good deal longer to get to me, but considering the current craziness, that was expected. In fact, the people at Classic was able to get it to me within the expected delay time.
After getting the old oil cleaned off, the gun looks like new. It it to the range, and shot 100 rounds of PRVI ammo through it, no problems. I will need more range time to get used to the sights. The one draw back to the gun is the current lack of ammo for it. Hopefully, that will ease up a bit after things settle down. To sum up, GREAT GUN and, considering the circumstances they were operating under, GREAT SERVICE

The Romanian TTC Tokarev pistol I received from Classic was in excellent condition, I could not have been more pleased with it. This gun is very powerful, but seems to have less recoil than my Glock 17. Also, when you shoot it, flames come out the barrel like it was some sort of cannon. People at the range were impressed. The 7.62x25 round is supposed to defeat body armor, that is good if you ever come accross an enemy with a bullet proof vest. I did order an extra mag which I had a problem with, but Classic exchanged it for a new one. Shipping is always fast with Classic. I can't wait until they get some surplus 7.62x25 back in stock.

When my Tokarev arrived at my FFL, I went in to check it out and signed the paperwork. The reaction of the gun dealer(s) were the same as my own: "Wow, that's a nice looking gun."

The description doesn't lie, these are NICE looking guns! I didn't opt for the Hand Select option and the thing looks practically unused. Only the tiniest holster bluing wear on the side of the muzzle, but I mean TINY.

The barrel looked good and shiny, a little rough, but after a good scrubbing, boiling water, the works, it looks much better. I took it shooting and blew out a hole the size of a silver dollar with 2-3 clips from 25ft. At 30 yards, the spread is significantly bigger, but it's still on the target.

Wonderful gun, get one before they're gone!
(Also, Classic Arms is probably one of, if not THE, best price for these. I compared for weeks...)

Review by Gary B on 9/10/2012

Received my Romanian Tokarev earlier this week and I simply couldn't be more pleased. I assume these are completely reconditioned before they leave the arsenal, because the finish was as close to brand new as you could imagine. Even the sharp edges around the muzzle and trigger guard showed absolutely no loss of finish. The only area where the bluing was worn through, but only just slightly, was on the knurled ridges on the hammer. Really fantastic!

The bore was pretty grungy, on the other hand, but some quality time with a bore brush and solvent helped a lot. The grooves are slightly darkened -- maybe that's a result of corrosive primer? But the ridges polished up to a mirror finish.

And the best part? This thing is super-accurate! On my very first magazine I had a grouping of less than 6 inches at about 15 yards -- having never fired it before. And it kept on doing that through about 75 rounds with flawless cycling -- not a single hang-up. I would definitely recommend this pistol and Classic Firearms!
Outstanding!

The Romanian TTC Tokarev Pistol - 7.62x25 pistol looked like it just came from the factory! Brand new! Once I field stripped it and cleaned it, gave it a try. Shoots like a new one and is LOUD!

Looking forward to giving it a try at about 50 yds.. Have ground hogs in my field and carrying a rifle on the tractor just don't work to well but this pistol will make their live hard.

Thanks for a super product. The extra dollars for hand select was well worth it.
Very Nice

Another winner from Classic! This one arrived in like-new condition (hand select option used) and is a tremendous value for the amount paid. To make that point, the price was so reasonable that I bought this Romanian TTC variant to see how it compared to the Polish TTC that I bought earlier. I think that I like the Polish variant slightly better, but I'm not sure why. Both are brilliantly made. The magazines are still a bit crude (sides ground down to fit), but they are adequate for plinking, etc. If you need more precisely-made mags, they are available through other channels.

On a separate note, Classic has *really* stepped up to the plate with huge improvements to their online ordering system, and their customer service is currently as good as you'll find anywhere.

Splendid version of the amazing Tokarev. The quality of craftsmanship is, with a doubt, superb and the "required" safety is of equal quality. There is no better value for a semi-automatic pistol.

I paid the extra for the hand select, and received the most beautiful gun. Naturally, one needs to clean them thoroughly, remembering that cosmoline is your friend. Everyone I have ever let hold this gun admires the fit and finish, as well as the wonderful balance. Everyone I have ever let fire this gun has expressed a desire to own one. No one can believe such a great gun is so inexpensive. My wife liked it so much, I had to order one of the chrome ones from here. This is one of the great bargains in handguns, and Classic Firearms picked out a beauty for me. Five Full Stars all the way around.
Excellent!

I ordered one of these fine pistols a couple months ago. Since the new site has a review feature, I figured I would offer my 2 cents.

The Romanian TTC is compact and packs quite a punch! I know some people wouldn't recommend a gun like this for conceal carry, but how slim it is makes it very comfortable to carry all day, even inside-the-waistband. (I am unaware of any manufacturer who makes an IWB holster for this gun, so I made my own.)

If you are considering it as a unique and powerful carry gun, Wolf makes some Hollow Points in 7.62 x 25mm. They can be pricy and hard to come by, so just stick to the cheap surplus stuff for target practice.

My brother carries a Springfield .45 XD, but the first time he fired my Tok he immediately pulled $200 out of his wallet and said "You gotta get me one!" He was particularly impressed with how easy it was to handle, despite the powerful cartridge. I would compare the 7.62 Tokarev round to a 9mm+P, but with better ballistics.
The gun seems to shoot high at <25 yards, although this seems to be common of Tokarevs.

If you are used to modern polymer guns, you may be surprised by how heavy this seemingly compact gun is. All steel construction, except for the plastic grips, is I think what makes this smaller gun so easy to handle and quick to re-engage with the target.

Over-all, it is compact, handles well, durable, and a fine piece of history. I would highly recommend this gun.
I love these things!

What a great little piece of commie rock and roll! Before purchasing, I watched videos of this gun blowing chunks out of a Toyota Forerunner brake drum, and I also saw video of it penetrating a kevlar helmet with ease, something the .22, 9m, 40 cal, and the .357 FAILED to do. The surplus ammo is still relatively cheap, but getting kinda scarce. If you can land some, this is a relatively cheap gun to shoot. The accuracy is very good for a handgun, the kick is not bad at all, and it makes respectable groupings and holes. It fires reliably, with NO visible or detectable quirks. For the safety-minded folks, this gun actually comes with 2 different safetys! An Ideal weapon for home defense, Conceal-carry, or target shooting.
My daughter fell in love with the thing, and we wound up buying another one for her for her birthday. We are now a twin Tok household.
One note, do NOT dry-fire these weapons! The older firing pin design precludes that, and will compromise the pin. Buy those plastic dry fire bullets, and dry fire to your heart's content!
Easy to operate, dismantle, clean and re-assemble. As much as commie ideology really sucks, I love the simplicity and reliablility of their firearms.

  • Description
  • Brutus' Description

    These are exceptional, probably the nicest batch we've had here.  And no disrespect to the Yugo variation, but I like these better. 

    These have a factory safety instead of an after production add on and the lines and fit are just cleaner.  These are in excellent condition with nice bluing and very minimal wear. Each pistol is packed in light oil inside a plactic bag... comes complete with an original surplus grade holster and extra mag.  Holsters will be one of the two styles pictured, randomly selected. Lanyards are not included in this batch. The finish on these is a deep rich blue. Some may have very slight bluing wear on the sharp edges but most do not. Bores have been very nice on the ones I have seen.

    Each pistol is semi-automatic and fires the hard hitting, flat shooting 7.62x25 caliber cartridge.  These pistols come with two 8rd magazines.  Imported by P.W. Arms.

    Note - Grips vary from pistol to pistol with some having a star emblem and others being the standard grooved non star variation.  

    Don't you buy no ugly gun.... get one of these and be proud.....

    Romanian TTC Pistol was a good purchase.
    Review by Bryan on 10/19/2014
    Quality
    I recently purchased a TTC Romanian Tokarev Pistol from Classicfirearms.com with accessories. I ordered it on a Thursday and received it a week later on the following Thursday. It was shipped through the USPS to my home since I hold a FFL 03 Curio and Relics License. When I opened it up I was happy with my purchase. It came with the Romanian Star pistol grips, a holster, cleaning rod and extra 8 round magazine giving me two magazines along with a lanyard for the pistol. I saw it on Classicfirearms.com and thought about ordering one for awhile before I pulled the trigger. I'm glad I did and looking forward to getting it cleaned up and shooting down range with it. The pistol itself is a TT-30 variant and there were several types made by different communist countries. Mine was made in Romanian around 1953 according to the stamped on the pistol. It came covered in oil inside a plastic bag and the inside of the barrel had what looked like cosmoline in it. I first thought that it was rust but it seemed to smear away when wiping it off. I knew better than to think it was rust especially since I got it from Classicfirearms.com and paid extra for a hand select. You can see what I bought through the video.

    This batch of TTC pistols is fantastic! Classic has really done a great job of selecting an excellent bunch of pistols for us C&R fanatics. Mine had minimal wear on the slide, and while the bore is dark, it has strong rifling and looks like it's rarely been fired. I LOVE this pistol. It feels like a FN-1903 and shoots like a 1911. Gotta love it!

    Unboxing of Romanian TTC Tokarev Pistol
    Review by The Real Jeffer on 11/4/2013
    Quality
    This is my first Classic Firearms purchase. I paid for hand selection and I am very pleased with the pistol. My video shows the unboxing for those of you who have yet to buy something from Classic Firearms.

    I disassembled and cleaned the pistol. It was very well oiled with no cosmoline.

    The extra magazine has a "Made in Taiwan" sticker, but looks as good as the one that the pistol came with.

    I will take it to the range tomorrow and test it. I am a little disappointed that 7.62x25 Tokarev ammo is not readily and cheaply available. Luckily I found some at a local gun show the other day.

    Review by Will on 8/27/2013
    Quality
    I bought the Romanian Tokarev TTC 7.62x25mm from here and received it within a few days. The TTC was floating around in a small box (no paper or bubble wrap or anything like that keeping it in place) which was in a slightly larger box. The gun is all metal and was not damaged in shipping but probably could of been packaged a little better? Lol.

    The gun itself arrived in fantastic condition and only had a little cosmoline that I had to clean off. Only issue (very minor) was the front sight appears to be chipped (a tiny bit) on the front side (not affecting shooting or sight picture). The magazine is a little scratched/scuffed up but goes in easily and is not a problem.

    All parts were numbers matching and the barrel was in very nice shape! The gun itself shoots very accurately and with very little recoil (100 rounds through it thus far). Easy to disassemble and clean and racking it is smooth and much lighter/easier than my SA XDm 45.

    Since purchasing I have upgraded the grips to Tokagypt style (wetsanded and plastidipped) and grip angle is improved and highly recommend doing something similar to yours.

    Unsure if pictures can be linked within a review but if so here is how this gun looks with these grips (plasti-dipped) http://bit.ly/13WJNkf

    Highly recommend and classicfirearms.com was a pleasure to do business with. I plan on many more purchases here in the near future! :D

    Great quality, Superb!
    Review by Jordan on 7/11/2016
    Quality
    So I opened the box and was blown away from the condition the pistol was in! Holster was in amazing condition as well. Great shooting gun just like I've been wanting for awhile now. The gun was failing to feed maybe 1/4 of the shots, possibly from old cosmoline that needed more cleaning on the slide or I also noticed the bullet was possibly getting stuck on the feed ramp because the original machining from the factory was rough. The machine marks were perpendicular to the bullets so I took steel wool and tried to smooth it out but haven't tested it yet.

    Overall, this is a great piece of history and I'd been wanting one of these Browning-like pistols! I fired from about 90 yards at a dirt mound and it was hitting exactly where I was aiming it! I heard the Soviets trained with them at 80 yards, so that's awesome! I had a barrel making company that makes world class carbon fiber barrels look over the barrel and said it had some minor rust pitting inside the barrel which is to be expected from it's age and it had a small curvature to the middle of the barrel from it's original machining work. After shooting it I was happy with it's accuracy and didn't notice any problems besides me being a bad shot half the time Lol

    Oh, and I did have the hand picked option. Which did come with the RPR star on the grips.

    My apologies to Classic Firearms for my tardiness in submitting this review. Purchase made in April 2016. This is my second C&R eligible purchase experience with Classic Firearms. Order process was easy and again I gambled by not opting for a hand select option. UPS delivery of ammo took two business days. USPS delivery of my first 03 FFL purchase took only four business days. Opening the box, the TCC-33 is just beautiful! Finish is rust and scratch free. Grips are intact and clean with star emblem. Barrel is bright with no pitting. Grooves and lands are there but appear smooth. Came with two magazines, both are in great shape and insert/eject freely. One of the magazines has a lanyard lug on the base plate, umm, not a fan. Firearm has an intact lanyard lug. Detail striping found firing pin and well to be very dirty, sticking with slight rust. They cleaned up easily and now function smoothly. A few words about the added safety. It’s placement makes for a short thumb memory learning curve. The retainer has crisp on/off points. Safety assembly is tight, smooth and does not detract from weapons overall appearance. Would not recommend carrying this weapon round chambered. The sights are intact and tight. I am extremely pleased with this 63 year old weapon. The order came with a smelly, moldy, gummy bicolor holster that did not clean up well. Range Report- Function is smooth using Romanian surplus ammo. Shoots low and left. Looking into adjusting sights. All in all…. I love this gun! Next on my Classic Firearms wishlist is a SKS.
    Awesome!!!

    I ordered this Romanian Tokarev at the same time I ordered a Bulgarian Makarov to save on transfer fees, and it was almost like receiving two new pistols in one shot!

    Classic Firearms did an excellent job as usual, as I could not ask for any better service.The fit, finish and bluing appears to be very nice! Both pistols have been dunked in oil (not Cosmoline) before they were placed into a plastic bag, so clean-up will be a breeze. I can't wait to take them both to the range to see cold war accuracy of our adversaries.

    This is my second Romanian TTC pistol and I can confidently say they are an excellent pistol and allot of fun to shoot. My first one was like a new gun and I wish I hadn't sold it. I really don't think it had ever been shot before. Now, for this pistol. I don't think it had ever been carried but it had also not been cleaned after being test fired so the barrel was full of rust. I am In the process of cleaning it now and a quick cursory cleaning of the barrel is proving to be promising in that the damage is not to bad. Just disappointing because the rest of the gun is in such great shape. It was a hand select but I don't blame classic for this. It's just one of those things and I think that it will still be a good shooter. My first of these pistols was great shooting gun! Get these while you can. I might just have to order another when I get the extra money. Thanks Classic for your great service and allowing us access to all the great peaces of history!

    Review by Jerry on 5/18/2016
    Quality
    I gave 4 stars because barrel condition is poor. However, I was VERY happy with the 1st impression. The hand-pick option is certainly worth it. Upon field stripping I noticed the barrel was in poor condition. It looks like significant pitting within only the rifling of the barrel. I cleaned it with Hoppes 9 cleaner, this improved it by 80%. I plan to clean it further when I get time. I'm not really sure what was in the barrel, possibly lead build up?? I'm not sure. I'm hoping further cleaning will bring it back to great condition.

    Besides the barrel, I'm VERY impressed with the quality. I will certainly shop again with Classic and I'm happy with my purchase. Many thanks Classic!!

    I just got this pistol from the dealer today and I was so relieved to see the gun. I paid for the hand picked option just for safe measure and I have no regrets laying another $20 down on this pistol. The outside was in awesome condition with almost perfect bluing around the entire pistol. The pistol also had the star grips with no nicks or scrapes. In addition, the holster had minimal wear, however, the extra magazine holder on it is a little stiff. I looked down the barrel and was not completely disappointed. The bore was not super shiny and there was some rust, but after a good cleaning I was relieved to see that the groves were still in great condition and there was almost no pitting of any kind. I shot 3 magazines through it and they were relatively accurate even though I am not the best with pistols. Also, I had 0 malfunctions with PPU ammunition. The trigger pull is pretty heavy, around 10 Ibs, but that is how they had to make war pistols. My only complaint is that the added safety does not move very crisply, it may just need a little oil but the hammer half-cock works great as a safety. Overall it is a steal for a pistol from the early cold-war era. 9.5/10

    Review by Johnny on 4/23/2016
    Quality
    I finally pulled the trigger, so to speak, and bought myself one of Classic's Tokarevs. It arrived in great aesthetic and mechanical shape. I even got the star grips. The pistol came very well packaged and it was heavily oiled to prevent rust. I give this pistol 5 stars because even though it was not a brand new, modern firearm, it is in excellent shape for its age and was exactly as advertised. If I really wanted to nitpick the condition, I could point out that the bluing, while nice, was mildly non-uniform in color in a few spots (but not worn off) and there were a few dings on the grip panels from use. But you can't knock a 60+ year old C&R pistol for such minor issues. In fact, my description of these minor flaws make them sound worse than they are. Honestly, the condition of this pistol was better than I expected. In fact, I need to shut up before I talk myself into ordering another!
    amazing purchased. .

    Classic Firearms does an awesome job keeping you informed with the process through email. They are reasonable with their shipping/handling fee, and they are quick with their shipping having received it in 6 days. There is some noticeable wear in the bluing due to holstering but nothing worn through. Barrel wear looks good. Holster is brown in color and appears unused judging by me having to force the pistol in to get it closed. Nice it comes with two mags. The ammo is a very fast and penetrating round. I purchased the hand select option but would not recommend it to others. Nice firearm for those just entering the curio/relic collecting.
    Nearly perfect piece of history

    I purchased this firearm about a month or so ago from Classic Firearms after researching the Tokarev. While I found the gun for a few dollars cheaper at other sites, I was impressed with Classic's description and by all of the customer reviews I read. The entire purchase process was painless and very easy. The pistol arrived covered in grease, something I was prepared for. After spending some time cleaning and lubricating it, I was extremely impressed by the fit and finish of the weapon. It was manufactured in 1956 and looks nearly new. All of the numbers matched, as advertised. I will say that the barrel had some fouling in it, so it has been fired before.
    I managed to track down 7.62x25 ammo, and I must say this pistol is accurate and the recoil is extremely manageable. The Bakelite grips are very detailed and show only minor wear. I'm very impressed with Classic Firearms. In fact, I just ordered a Mosin Nagant 91/30 hex receiver dragoon era rifle. Classic has definitely earned my business and I plan on expanding my collection of Soviet era weapons.

    The stamp says 1953 but it looked brand new to me!! Shoots great, hard to find hollow points but the Classic guys can't do anything about that! Just had to wipe down the oil and snake the barrel a couple times and it was ready to roll.

    What a fantastic firearm. Super clean and a flawless shooter. Blueing was in absolute excellent condition as advertised. Even got the star grips. Came packed in oil so after a little cleaning I was outside testing it. Sights are dead on and the ejecter really ejects those shells far away from you. Both my clips fed the gun well with no failures to feed. Very low recoil and an absolute joy to shoot. Classic firearms has done it again. Great piece of history that looks as good as it shoots. Thanks again Classic.

    I ordered "Hand Select for Exterior Cosmetic" for + $20.00. Exterior is fine. No problem there. Grips would best be described as Fair/Good. I was showing it to a friend and cringed when the sunlight hit the red rust right inside the muzzle. Stripped it when I got home and found raised red rust throughout the bore. Soaked it in oil, cleaned with a phosphor bronze bore brush several times, Wrapped brush with strands of Big 45 Metal cleaner for a several more times & cleaned with patches. Removed the red rust & exposed the pitted bore. Worse near the muzzle & the beginning of the rifling at the chamber. The gun was oozing oil in the box from everywhere but the barrel. It was dry as a bone inside with red rust. First "dud" I have gotten ordering sight unseen. Bummed & embarrassed. Guess I was due. All other guns have been fine.

    Received my Tokarev today super fast shipping orderd it on a Tuesday and got it Friday. The finish is excellent on the pistol and the two mags very small signs of usage. The barrel did have some rust in it but once swabbed out there was very minimal pitting.The holster is pretty rugged which is cool it also has the last person it was issued to name on it super cool. It did have some black gooey stuff on the bottom of it. I did not receive the cleaning rod and lanyard with it but oh well still a great buy.

    I purchased one of these about a year ago through classic. I was very pleased with the pistol until I inspected the bore. The bore was very pitted and damaged, and when I fired it for the first time the accuracy was terrible. I shoot pistols well even out to 75yds but my TTC shot very badly even at 5 and 10yds. I sold it but wanted to keep it. I want another tokarev but am afraid to buy one because I am afraid I will get another one with a bad barrel

    I purchased this gun a few days ago. It arrived at my FFL Dealer and I picked it up. So I get Home and although I had looked it over in the store, I gave closer inspection. When they say Excellent, man you ain't just blowing smoke. I was amazed. This looks and feels like a new Gun. I didn't opt for hand select. I am very pleased with my purchase. I am giving this review without having fired the gun. It is in that nice of shape. I mean it's tight. When you get it, be ready for a good cleaning. when they packed these away, they meant for it not to rust. You looking for a deal on a Tokarev, well this is the place.
    Overall A Very Good Purchase. Get Yourself One.
    Review by Jeff J. on 3/15/2016

    I have been considering one of these for a long time. When I read the description that this batch was probably the nicest Classic has had, I decided now was the time.
    When my box arrived, I was on my way to work. I had to wait all day to open it. When I did I was amazed. The gun came wrapped in plastic and swimming in oil, not cosmoline, and nicely bubble wrapped as well. It was BEAUTIFUL! Looked brand new. It was a 1952. Not a scratch or wear mark or anything on it. Two like-new magazines as well. Clean, no cosmoline, just a little oil for protection, and very solid. I got one with the star grips and lanyard loop, so i was very pleased with that. The ONLY imperfection I could find was two very miniscule nicks near the bottom of the right grip. Not an issue at all. The bore had a little bit of cosmo buildup inside but it cleaned up effortlessly. It was shiny and bright with excellent grooves. Looked like it had never been fired. The add-on safety that I heard many stories about how poor it was, seems to be solid. I don't think there will be any issues with it. Mine functions well. Doesn't feel cheap at all. A quick exterior wipedown with a 1:1 ratio Simple Green solution to remove the excess lightweight gun oil, and she was ready to rock. Overall I'm quite pleased with my purchase! I do have to mention before I forget that this was WITHOUT choosing the extra hand-select option. I firmly believe that I couldn't have scored better if I had chosen that route. Classic was not kidding when they said this was a nice batch!
    Now for the negative, but certainly not a deal breaker. Did not come with a lanyard, but that was to be expected as it clearly said so in the description. So I can't take points off for that. The holster... JUNK! The exterior didn't appear to be too bad. One of the belt loops was severed at the attachment point and had been reattached. Poorly. All I can say is I am very glad I looked inside before trying to slide the gun in. Some drunken Ivan reattached it by poking both ends of a six inch piece of heavy gauge stiff copper wire through the end of the loop and the back of the holster and twisting the ends together inside the holster right where it would do the most damage to the exterior finish of the gun. Yikes! I had hoped to do a leather reconditioning of the holster for authenticity sake, but that option has left the building. Not very pleased with that. Oh well, you win some and you lose some. Also, it didn't come with the cleaning rod either, which was not mentioned in the description, so points off for that. But, as i said, not a deal breaker. The Tokarev itself is what matters, and I couldn't be happier with the one I received.
    As an added bonus I have to mention that I have several Romanian coworkers. When I told them about my purchase and showed them pictures, they were very excited and graciously pointed out on a map of the country where Cugir is located and proudly showing me the towns where they were from and telling me stories about the country and how and why they came to the U.S.. That's what is special to me about the C&R guns. I enjoy the history that comes along with them. They aren't just guns. They are someone's memories and stories.
    Thank you, Classic Firearms.

    Got my Tok within a week and I'm pleased. The gun looks new after few hours of cleaning. I had to scrub the barrel out real good and I'm surprised its in such good shape for being 61 yrs old (1955). Only shot 50 rounds through it but functions flawlessly. I used Wolf Gold cause there's alot of it available. Buy one and keep it for another 60+ years.

    This was my third purchase from Classic. Once again, I couldn't be happier. The bluing on the gun is between 95 and 98%. It was coated in some gun oil that wiped right off, no cosmolene. I ran a brush and some patches through the bore to discover it was free of pitting and fairly bright. Both magazines were in excellent condition. For an Army veteran like me who used an M1911A1, handling this and maintaining it are very familiar. For under $250, this is an exceptional buy. For someone that wants a nice handgun with a powerful round, this is the piece to go with.

    When I picked up my Tokarev from my FFL I was very concerend about the barrel. It was about half covered in rust. When I took it home I thought about calling classic to swap barrels, but decided to clean her up first. It turned out to just be surface rust and old oil. The barrel is bright with almost no pitting. The rest of the gun is perfect no putting or rust. Blueing is 100%.All matching numbers. The holster, cleaning rod and mags are in great condition. Started of a little concerned but it turned out to be a great pistol!! I'm impressed.

    Always wanted one of these and finally was sucked in by the advertised description. Did not pay extra for the hand select but I'm not disappointed. Its got a couple of marks but overall in superior surplus condition. Picked up a box of the surplus ammo which looks pretty good although I haven't shot any yet. Mine turned out to be a 1955. Barrel is mismatched but quite bright after a quick swabbing. Both mags look good and work perfectly. Star grips and a lanyard ring that would be my preference. The holster appears to have never been used and is quite quite snug when you close the flap. I presume its shrunk a bit from storage I expected to have to really work at cleaning it up but it comes in fairly light oil. Its easy to strip. The firing pin was the grungiest and was stuck forward until I worked out by pressing on the hammer end. Pumped it while submerged in paint thinner and now it works freely. Put a box of S&B through it and it functions well. Accuracy was decent but can't say I was shooting for a score. It did make the cow pies fly though.

    Very impressed. For a 63 year old gun the conditioning is great. Its likely a refurb, but so what. My barrel had zero pitting, which is really surprising. With all the accessories it is a great deal. Do the homework on the gun though. For example, don't pull the trigger without a round in it or you can damage the firing pin. I really love the feel of it, gotta say it fits my hands well.

    Received my TTC 7 days after placing the order and that included a three day weekend! Pistol was more than I expected in terms of overall condition and box included a nice clean leather holster with little or no wear, 2 magazines and the cleaning rod but alas, no lanyard.
    After through cleaning, the barrel was bright and rifling look good. I put a couple of rounds downrange and had a few hiccups with the darn ATF safety not allowing trigger pull unless it was REALLY pushed down into fire mode. Not classics fault, I'm exploring options to remedy situation. BTW this purchase has already paid me back for my C&R license fee. Classic I'll be back.

Both mags look fine and the nice leather holster is simply a bonus, especially at this price! Thanks, Classic Firearms, for another great addition to my Soviet Bloc\Cold War era collection!

    Romanian TTC Tokarev Pistol
    Review by Robert on 2/12/2016
    Quality
    The pistol arrived yesterday at my FFL. I ordered on Wed, and it arrived the following Thur. I did not select hand picked. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box! Its an awesome looking pistol. Of course the pistol was covered in oil. The holster was very nice, no lanyard but not a big deal. Happy with the two used but acceptable mags. I managed to give it a detailed cleaning. Removing the oil was pretty easy. The barrel was fairly dirty however it did clean up nicely it appears shiny with no obvious pitting of any kind. I'm not crazy about the safety. Yes it functions okay but it feels really cheap, and flimsy. I took a star for the safety if it wasn't for that I would give it 5 stars. It feels good in the hand, the weight is nice, and manageable. It seems to point naturally for me. The sights are good but not great overall pretty happy with the sight picture. If your thinking of getting one for your self, I highly recommend you do. I just love surplus guns, and this pistol is a nice piece to add to my meager collection. Thanks Classic Arms for the painless transaction, and a very nice pistol I must say.
    Another outstanding firearm from Classic
    Review by John on 2/8/2016
    Quality
    Cosmetically, this pistol could pass for never issued. Aftermarket safety, which seems to be a real hit or miss on other TTCs is smooth, with positive detent engagement in both positions. Bore was originally not as good looking as the cosmetics of the gun, but after cleaning, 25 rounds and a second cleaning, the bore did clean up nicely. Magazines are both in excellent shape. Grips have no sign of wear, and both panels have the star emblem.
    The leather holster arrived dried, and with mildew on about 5 percent of the exterior. After two hours of cleaning, and working in leather conditioner, the holster looks new, takes a shine like a fine pair of boots, the leather is flexible, and the gun, spare magazine and cleaning rod all fit properly with no sticking or forcing into position.

    On the range, the recoil is surprisingly light, no doubt due to the light weight of the bullet. Grouping at 25 yards was consistently on point of aim, with no flyers.

    Classic has come through again for me.
    Great pistol and great service!

    Picked up one of these over a week ago and was thrilled to see the exterior cosmetics - perfect, even though I didn't pay the $20 "select" fee. However, when I looked down the bore, I was very disappointed - there was a significant amount of pitting! So, why did I give it a 5-star rating you ask? Well, I contacted the shop (thanks Amanda and Grayson!) and they told me I could swap out my barrel for one in better shape. It arrived today and I couldn't be happier! It's been shot, but not much, and is nearly perfect! Haven't shot it yet, but I don't anticipate any issues. I'll be doing business with Classic again in the future.

    Classic Delivers Once Again!
    Review by TheGerman on 2/4/2016
    Quality
    I really do not know where to start. My review is absolutely not condescending, but actually I am normally a hard-nosed buyer. My problem with Classic -- I have nothing to complain about - a nice situation to be in.

    I have purchased the following from Classic over the last year:

    - 2 Finish M39s
    - 2 Makarove P 63s
    - 2 Tokarev TTCs
    - 2 assorted other firearms
    - a ton of other stuff
    - lots of other stuff

    My experience with Classic has been:
    - when I called twice to change my order, it happened "right now", no "well place another order" stuff.
    - the flow of emails keeping me up-to-date on exactly what the status was ...it was extremely timely (like "right now"!)
    - even after all the surplus disclaimers (e.g. Classic surplus/ relic arms are as is), I have yet to be disappointed. Every weapon exceeded my expectation. Maybe that is because I read the Classic description.
    - I made the mistake of ordering a Tokarev TTC from a different company for $10 - and what i received was a pistol in a substantially lessor condition, with a poor condition holster, and aftermarket safety in raw metal (no bluing). And it took 10 business days to get here - I regret that order.

    Guys & Gals at Classic - you have earned my trust, and thank you for your service.

    Very Nice Shooter
    Review by drTodd on 1/4/2016

    Since I have an FFL(03), I ordered this on-line. The only (minor) issue was sending Classic Firearms a copy of my C&R License. Scanned the license a number of times and each upload would indicate that it was illegible. I finally saw that I could order the pistol and send them an email with an attachment containing a scan of my license. That worked much better. After all of that, I ended up sending them a scan of one of the illegible scans but Classic Firearms notified me minutes later and the problem was quickly fixed. Having ordered from most of the major C&R websites, I can honestly say that, while all have given me very good customer service, Classic Firearms was second to none.

    Cleaned the pistol in Mineral Spirits to remove the heavy oil (not cosmoline) and rubbed everything with CLP, then a second rubdown with Ballistol. This pistol looked "showroom quality". The only negative was that the bore was dirty beyond anything I've ever purchased with my C&R. I was able to finally get a few somewhat clean patches after a good scrub down lasting at least a half hour.

    I took the pistol out to the range the following day. I must say that this is my favorite gun to shoot. At 25 yards I was able to put every round where it needed to go. The recoil is much less than I expected shooting the 85 Grain PPU FMJ. I must say this is an impressive pistol. I regularly shoot my Glock 23 and it is my everyday carry. If I felt better about the after-production, import-required safety installed on this pistol and if I thought this thing were "dropsafe", this would be something I'd carry daily. I love this gun...one of the best gun purchases I've ever made.

    Just picked up my Tokarev from my FFL and the gun is in AWESOME condition considering it's 62 years old! After disassembly and cleaning I'm very impressed. It is better than I was expecting. Then why only four stars Andy? I ordered on Sunday night. By Tuesday afternoon, I still hadn't received an email saying that it had shipped so I tried to call. No answer. The machine said to call during regular business hours (It was 3pm). So I sent an email. No reply. Wednesday afternoon the same thing. Called - no answer. Emailed again - no reply. Around midnight a customer service rep finally emailed back saying that the order would "probably" be filled on Thursday. It was. It made it to my FFL on Saturday. My question is why did it take so long to ship the order? I would have no problem with the slow shipping if someone would have answered the phone or allowed me to leave a message to get back with me about what was going a on. Or answered my email less than two days later. The lack of communication made me wonder if I'd been taken. That being said the gun was in excellent condition as promised, and based on everyone else's five star ratings and fast shipping reviews, I'm guessing that my experience was the exception rather than the norm.

    Ordered the Tokarev TTC on December 17. It was shipped through USPS on the 18th and arrived at my FFL on the 26th. Not bad considering the Christmas rush. Pistol overall is in excellent shape with a deep blue finish and nice barrel. This was a general pick and not hand select. The pistol included a lanyard ring but no lanyard in the box. Luck of the draw I guess. Great pistol for the price. Looking forward to visiting the range if the rain ever stops. Bought some of the Romanian Red Army Standard steel cased ammo to feed it. Thanks Classic for another great experience.

    I bought my Tokarev firearm during the Black Friday week so shipping was a bit slower, which was expected. I paid for the hand select fee and I was not disappointed. I cleaned up the firearm and it was in remarkable shape for being manufactured in the 1950s. A few small wear marks were on the slide from holster wear but nothing noticeable. My only complaint is the big importer's mark on the slide but other than that it is flawless and would have liked to got matching magazine but I'm not sure how rare that is. I ran 200 rounds through this handgun with zero problem. I will be buying from Classic again when they get more C&R in stock.

    Picked up my Tokarev today from my FFL. Couldn't be happier with the purchase. The gun has a very nice finish on it and is mechanically sound. I was very surprised at how well it feels in the hand. It feels like a natural shooter. All of the markings are clear and distinct. The Cugir factory mark is very visible, the date (mine was a 1953) is clear, and all other markings show up nicely. The magazines fit nicely and are in good shape. All things considering the leather holster is in good shape. Only problem would be a small tear in one of the leather loops for the cleaning rod. Though the loop is still together, it is slightly torn. Rod still holds in place just have to be gentle, but to be from 1953 it is in good shape. If the gun and holster could talk it would be interesting. My only regret is not already having some 7.62x25 waiting on the gun to arrive. I'm itching to get some rounds through this thing!

    I just got my Tokarev in. I paid the $20 extra for Hand Select, Maby i just lucked out but this pistol is in almost Flawless condition.. Not a scratch on it.. I do not think it was ever issued, no marks at all, even where the spring clip is that you have to remove to take the firearm apart !!! One Happy Camper !!!!

    One of the Best SURPLUS PISTOLS!!!
    Review by Holden on 12/11/2015
    Quality
    I am very impressed with the quality of this pistol
    (No bluing wear, No rust, & No pitting), it is in excellent shape and the grooves and lands in the rifling are strong for a pistol from 1953 that's been shot a lot. These Tokarev's are pretty accurate for what their worth. My Tokarev has a natural point of impact that is naturally high, but that very common with these pistols because how they are zeroed from that factory.

    Another nice thing about this pistol is that with mine there was no cosmoline, just some factory oil for storage. So there was no complete disassembly and elaborate cleaning needed.

    The only complaint I have is that I wish all the import marks on these guns were on the right side of the frame above the grip because they are not easily seen. Mine the import mark is on the left side of the pistol on the slide. But the bluing on mine is very strong and sort of masks over the import mark. Also, I am sure you can ask for one were the Import mark is on the right side of the slide under special notes before you purchase.

    Overall I am very happy and satisfied with this purchase and may even buy another one! Classic Firearms has a very user friendly website making it easy to find an FFL and getting the gun shipped fast!

    Thank You, Classic

    Beautiful pistol in great condition. I didn't go with the hand pick and honestly I don't know how they could hand pick because this one is in phenomenal shape. Fit and finish is excellent, barrel is shiny and gorgeous. Great little pistol that operated flawlessly with 50 rounds through it at the range last week. Classic is awesome and they always ship fast and make everything easy.

    Received my 1955 Tok a few days ago and waited to review it until I could get it on the bench and get her cleaned and polished. My first impressions out of the box was it was in overall excellent condition. The finish is intact with only very minor holster scuffs, and no scratches or dings on either the metal or grips. The leather holster was also in great condition if a little stiff, but its a (possibly) 60 year old flap holster so no suprise. A little TLC and it's back to being supple. Personally I've always liked the old flap holsters so I'm not planning to buy a newer type for this pistol.

    Once I got the pistol disassembled and cleaned up I found a shiny bore with excellent grooves and no pitting, frosting, or rust. The rails and slide also showed little to no wear. The trigger is obviously no match trigger, but I have "modern" pistols with equal or worse, so that's pretty pleasing. Now if only that ugly safety didn't have to be installed for import. *sigh*

    All in all a great buy for a small piece of history. I may just have to order a companion for it.

    After a good cleaning they are nice. Be sure to disassemble it and clean it really good and run a brush through the barrel a few times as the oil and gunk will be in the barrel and make it look bad, it's not. JHP bullets are available for them from PPU for $16.95-$20+. Classic Firearms were very responsive to my questions and very helpful; )

    being that this was my first tokarev purchase there were a few things to learn. I love the shooting characteristics of the pistol. the one issue is the joke of a safety. I know it was not classic that did the conversion to overcome soviet "ingenuity" but once the pistol was taken down for cleaning the safety lost its tension. Having bought 5 firearms from classic I am very happy with their work, just be aware that it may not be a carry weapon as some in the comments suggest.

    Overall I'm glad I made this purchase. Classic processed my order quickly. I ordered on Saturday and the pistol was at my FFL on thursday.

    It is surplus so I did not expect it to look new but the pistol has a very nice finish on the outside and looks great.

    Two negatives the borel was very dark and I wondered if it was in firing order. After brushing repeatedly with solvent it now looks passable. Second when I first received the pistol several times when dryfiring the trigger would not depress as if the saftey was on. I have not been able to repeat the problem. Not sure what the cause was I'm still investigating but I was not intending to use it as a carry gun. I haven't gotten to the range yet so I can't comment on how it fires

    Overall I am very pleased with the pistol and with Classic Firearms

    This is my first purchase from Classic and was hesitant but the number and quality of the reviews persuades me (Also I really wanted a Tokarev!) I got my Tok yesterday and haven't cleaned it yet but I've looked at it from every angle. Like so many of the other buyers I don't see any signs of it ever being fired or mishandled! I am VERY pleased with this pistol! It goes well with my CZ52. Thanks to Classic and all the customers that took time to review their product. Regards, Steve K.

    I purchased the Romanian TTC Tokarev for a range gun but I haven't had the opportunity to fire it yet. I did get to give it a good solid cleaning and I'm sure it won't disappoint. The tokarev came with a lot of oil on it and the barrel seemed very fouled. It all cleaned off rather easy and to my surprise there wasn't a blemish on it other than a scuff on the grip and a mark on the crown. The barrel was mirror bright and the blueing is deep.

    The pistol is easy to field strip and feels good in the hands. Neither of the serial numbers on the magazines matched the pistol but both seem to function well. Also in the package was a well worn holster and lanyard. I would say is condition is a 3 out of 10 but I didn't have any expectations or use for it anyways.

    Overall, I'm very pleased with the pistol and Classic Firearms. Thanks for the quick shipping and nice overall firearm.

    Very cool pistol
    Review by CHRIS on 10/19/2015
    Quality
    I have yet to fire my new Tokarev, but I am very content with the condition of this firearm.
    For the price, this is a very fair. I added hand select.

    I can see where the reconditioning took place, and complete re-bluing. Whom ever worked on my particular pistol rushed while belt sanding the slide causing some front sight removal. That probably wont effect accuracy much at all. One side of the post is squared, and the other is rounded. The pistol was overly oiled in a good way, and that was far easier to clean up compared to cosmoline.

    The pistol was test fired. I found brass residue on the slide. It seems like it wasn't cleaned well after it was tested, because the nice shiny bore had rust on the rifling. It cleaned off with a brush, and CLP. The bore is strong otherwise.

    To those with larger hands, beware of" hammer bite". The web of my hand gets pinched between the hammer and slide. I have the same issue with all G.I. 1911 pistols too. (non beaver tail grip safety). This Tokarev gave me a nice pinch while checking the slide for function. This pistol is very smooth, and a great value. My holster is in very nice shape. I was worried about a replacement holster, but that is a moot point.
    Cool gun for my collection. Im just gonna need to wear gloves when I shoot it.

The one delivered today is so good I decided to try my luck and ordered another one today. Fit and finish is excellent, black/blue was perfect without even a trace of holster wear, action solid, lockup tight, trigger crisp, magazines feel like they have new springs. Bore was shiny showing little use.

    This is my first purchase from classic but all I can say is WOW and thanks.

    This exceeded my expectations on a surplus handgun for sure. I did not pay the hand select fee but hard to believe one would be much nicer than this example! The numbers match on slide and frame. Deep blue finish looks excellent with only two very faint scratches that I see at all. Bore is clean an shiny with no pitting which is great. Mine was made in 1956 but would be hard to guess that without the year stamped on it. Nice bonus that the leather holster and lanyard were in very good condition. One of my mags showed slight surface rusting rest of gun was coated in a lot of oil but it was thin and easy to wipe away not at all like cosmoline.

    Customer service was great as well so I all around pleased with my first purchase here.

    It arrived within 2 days of ordering the gun. Took it to the range the next day and fired 100 rounds in windy conditions from 10-20 meters. Very impressive grouping and more powerful than 9mm or .380. Also, great for conceal carry if you have a CHL. I highly recommend it.

    I love this gun. Great shape, was full of oil but cleaned nicely. Has the feel of a 1903 or 1911 with an all steel build. Comes with an awesome leather holster. I honestly love how this gun feels. The ammo isn't the cheapest but still not bad (if you shop around you can get brass cased rounds for about $17/per 50).

    My only gripe is that the one I received did not have a lanyard loop for the strap that comes with it. I asked around, searched online and so far they are VERY hard to find. There are the tt-30 pieces out there but THEY WILL NOT FIT. So I am down to either having one made or leaving as is. It's not a huge deal, but BUYER BEWARE that this could happen (unless maybe you opt for the cosmetic check?) It's not a huge deal but sucks that it's not complete. Still an awesome gun to have.

    Review by Drew on 9/7/2015
    Quality
    You'd hardly believe these pistols are 60ish years old. They look great, shoot great, and are accurate. Only qualm I had was the barrel when I first unboxed it. In the rifling, there was either residue from past rounds going through it or else there was very light surface rust in the grooves. I feared the barrel may have been pitted, but I cleaned it, fired it, cleaned it again and inspected it and the barrel looks great. I'm unsure how the process works when you guys get firearms in, but maybe punch the bore a time or 2 with an oily cloth? For the price, you'd be hard pressed to find a better handgun.

    Also I wish that left handed holsters existed since I am left eye dominant and shoot left hand. But I can make the right handed holster work.

    I bought my first TTC several months ago from Classic and was very impressed! So... I decided recently to buy a second one, and this one has made an even better impression. I tend to order during times of high volume (when the mosins came in or when the yugos arrived), but even with all the extra orders coming through, they still managed to get it to my house within a week of ordering it. The pistol itself is in amazing condition with over 90% bluing on both my orders, the mags are equally as nice, and the holsters were clean and blemish free. This is a solid buy and Classic is a great company to do business with.

    With the small price drop, I decided to go ahead and get the Romanian TTC to partner with a Polish TTC I bought last year. I was not disappointed with this one. I received a really nice 1953 with matching numbers on the slide, frame and barrel. The blueing on the slide is not quite as nice as that on my Polish model but the barrel on this one was in much better shape. Both magazines that came with it are nice although if you fill them to capacity the last round does not load properly. I have taken to loading 7 instead. The holster has a shoulder strap and is in nice shape too. Haven't shot this one yet, but I am certain it will be a good shooter. Thanks Classic!

    Very nice, excellent condition 1956 dated pistol. Numbers on slide, frame and barrel match. Neither of the magazines matched. Finish excellent, obviously fresh from factory refurbishment. Bore was dark and dirty (?), but cleaned up. Lands are very light, which I assume is normal for these pistols, since the barrel does no show much wear externally. Maybe not cleaned after test firing? Probably good to shoot as it is, since the rest of the gun seems to be very clean, but lots of oil inside and out.

    Holster pretty rough with previous soldier's name and assuming service number in ink on the inside of the flap (Rata P13485). Lots of wear to inside and outside of holster, but seems to be a lot of life left in it. Came with lanyard, used, and cleaning rod, like new. Extra magazine in excellent condition as is the one in the gun.

    Very happy with this pistol.

Truly unbelievable. The 1st one I bought the barrel came clean but it took some cleaning.... well worth it... now I have 2 beautiful Romanian Tokarevs that are accurate and reliable as my Glock 17 but they have half the recoil.

    This is the second TTC I have ordered from Classic. The first one was last year. Got it in August, Cleaned and shot it once, then gave it to my dad as a gift, so I had to get myself another. As usual, Classic is the best at shipping, hands down. Ordered this one on a Thursday night, had it by the following Monday. This second one appears to be in even better condition than the first, and that was without the extra charge for a hand pick. I would say it is at least 95%, with little wear on any of the surfaces. The grooves were a bit dark, but after some BlueGel and a brush, the bore was shining. Ordered the Romanian ammo and two extra mags, and got a chance to get to the range. The TTC functioned flawlessly, and was fairly accurate at 10 yards without doing any adjustments to the sights. I did have one mag though that when inserted allowed the slide to go forward without using the slide release. I am going to see if it may just be a little dirty still. Overall, I am pleased with this TTC,and Classic as usual is perhaps the best online place to get what you want.Just wish I had known they were going to lower the price this week, but I didnt want to miss the chance to get another one. For a fun gun to just shoot and enjoy, I would highly recommend getting one.

    The pistol I received looks like it just rolled out of the plant back in 1953 when the pistol was made. There is not a scratch, rub mark, or any sign of any wear or tear on or in it. I did pay the extra $$ for a hand pick and I would like to thank the individual that did so, It was well worth it. The holster was in pretty good condition externally but on the inside it had writing from Individuals it had been issued to. Now I'm not complaining, to me that adds character and it give you something else to talk about besides the pistol..... But I don't know anyone who would want to do that....(smiles) . The only bad thing about this purchase was it did not come with the lanyard strap. Definitely a awsome buy.

    This gun is in really nice shape - exactly as described. Paid for hand select, and am not disappointed. All matching serial numbers (except the mag.... I wish, right ). Bore, frame, slide and grips all look great. Have not had a chance to shoot it yet, but see no reason it won't work great.

    Only downside of the transaction is I missed the $20 price drop by a week.....my bad luck.

    just recived today.my very first online purchase. gun was in a bag of oil. wiped it down and dissasembled and cleaned. not a scratch on it. i love the look of it. i did not choose the hand pick so i had a feeling id get one with a scuff or scratch somewhere. boy was i wrong. its amazing looking. the barrel after some cleaning reveals very nice grooves. was a lil scared that it wouldnt but it was just the old cosmo i guess. few rags and a few passes with the brush and it looks as good as the day it was made. however nbot all the numbers macthed. a lil disapionted but its not big deal. the barrle was the odd man out. all the others was matching. have not fired yet but i have high hopes and cant wait to have some fun with it. thanks very much classic arms! ive been wanting one for a couple years now and you delivered!

    The Torkarev 7.62 x25 Classic Firearms sent me is a beauty. It feels great in the hand, is in excellent shape, and fires very accurately. At 25 yards range, my Marine Corps nephew had no problem putting good groupings on the target.
    I would recommend this weapon for your back up while rifle hunting or a woods gun for camping, or use at the range. I would not recommend it for self defense in an urban area due to the high velocity of the round. That being said, I prize mine as my back up to my rifle for hunting wild boar. The recoil is amazingly mild despite the power of the round. Damn fine weapon.
    Perfect

    The pistol that was shipped to me by far exceeded the expectations I had. This is only my second C&R purchase and the first time through classic. I wish I had ordered my first curio through classic because if this gun is anything model the rest of their inventory then they must have amazing firearms. This gun looks brand new.

    Pros:

    Fast shipping, I got it 7 days after I bought it.

    Gun is in ment condition, I mean I honestly think it has never been used, not even a scratch on the blueing.

    Came with mags and a holster, the holster may look odd but it would actually work as a modern holster, be careful however as the holster covers the gun entirely and it may blur the lines between Open and Concealed carrier.

    Fantastic preference and design.

    Cons

    Ammo is hard to find in my local area

    It is a European gun so it is small for American hands, Custom Grips and Extended Magazine floor plate are likely a must if you have man hands.



    over all I'd give this gun a 10/10

    I'm very happy with the weapon I received from the guys (Gabriel) after having to send my first one back. There was a slide problem with the first one they sent that was probably curable with minor work. They sent me another one and did a pick from five which generally costs $20.00 for free. Being made in 1952 the pistol is only two years younger than I and it looks brand new. I looked real hard for wear.
    Thank-you Gabriel and the people at Classic Fire Arms.

    Shipping to my FFL was fast.
    Finish on the gun is immaculate - you could tell me it's brand-spankin-new and I'd believe it. The bore is ridiculously clean and bright. If any rounds were ever fired through it, it had to have been less than a hundred. Gun came covered in cosmo, but that was expected. A bit of cleaning and a heavy oiling (to loosen up any cosmo I missed), and it's almost ready for a trip to the range. Both mags are in superb condition and the only flaw I could see was a bit of a burr on the internal portion where it was milled for the safety. A quick touch-up with a file and it was made smooth and crisp. The holster and lanyard that came with the gun were a bit worse for the wear though. The leather tab that secures the holster flap was torn and the lanyard doesn't have a hook on the end. Other than that, no complaints to be had here, folks. If you're looking for a Tokarev, this is the place to get it.

    I purchased a handpick when these were on sale. Everything was matching except the magazines. Exterior blue finish was flawless. The plastic handgrips had a couple very small nicks.

    I was a little concerned when I ran a patch through the barrel and found a bunch of brown stuff that looked like rust. It took about 15 minutes of cleaning to find a relatively nice barrel with a slight bit of frost. It must have been dried cosmoline.

    I took it to the range and ran two full magazines. Second magazine gave me 8 shots in the 10 ring at 5 yards: better than my Beretta. The trigger seemed a little heavy so I measured it with my digital trigger pull scale. The scale maxed out at over 12 pounds. Yeah, it's heavy. I'm going to see if I can smooth it up a bit.

    I want another one!

    This was my first purchase from Classic Firearms and first of all, I would like to say how utterly impressed I was with the level of customer service and professionalism of the staff of C.F. My Tokarev pistol package came with an excellent quality handgun and accessories, except the holster arrived, (It was surplus, after all.), with a cut and tear on the spare magazine pouch. After sending back a picture of the damage and fully expecting a long process of returning the sent holster, and being charged shipping, to my pleasant surprise, the professional staff at Classic Firearms told me they would look for a better holster and send it, free of any charge to me. The replacement holster promptly arrived at my doorstep! Having shot the pistol now, it is a jewel of a bargain, functions flawlessly, hits right on the mark even with it's fixed sights, and I could not be happier.

    This is a company that values it's customers, it's products, and it's reputation. Complete pros! They will definitely have me as a repeat customer.
    Bit Disappointed
    Review by Gunny on 3/31/2015
    Quality
    I decided to give one of these pistols a try and placed my order with Classic.
    Took 7 days to receive from day of order to arrival.

    Upon opening the box, first off, no owners manual or paper work of any kind.
    However, manuals are easily downloaded from the Internet.

    Pistol:

    Was wrapped in oiled plastic bag, upon observation I found immediately
    2 rub marks on top of slide where the bluing has been rubbed off.. This is easily spotted and should have been seen, as I chose to pay extra for the Hand Select option, which apparently was a waste of money, Classic didnt mind taking the money but failed to give me that added benifit when they pack the pistol. Rest of the pistol was in good condition and I found no other issues with it. The barrel is like new, crisp, sharp, lands and grooves.

    Magazines:

    2 magazine included and apparently used mags, but still in good condition
    and loaded down with cosmoline, these needed a complete take down for cleaning. Cleaning rod included and in good condition.

    Holster:

    Now here is the sad part, the holster was well used and had 2 holes,
    one in the bottom left corner of the magazine pouch holder and the
    other at the bottom holder on side of holster where cleaning rod fits
    it had a 1/4" tear. 2 lanyards were also included and in good condition.

    Overall all, I'm a bit disappointed in the package, since paying for hand select
    should of produced a bit better condition pistol. Ive had up to now very good luck with Classic Firearms so I was surprised that this time is wasn't the case.
    The pistol performed very well at the range with only 2 FTF out of 50 rds fired.

    As Classic rated this batch "E" for excellent, I always reserve doubt when anyone rates ANYTHING an E, be it pizza or snowshoes..... Well, this Tok was an E PLUS! Even covered in commie cosmo oil, the FFL jockeys themselves commented on how pristine this pistol was! Cosmetically, not a mark ON it, all matching numbers. The bore took some scrubbing, but it cleaned up nicely. This pistol was shiny and looked unissued!
    Took it out back for it's first firing foray. Oddly enough, I felt the handling difference in THIS Tok with different ammo, something I was not able to discern with the other 2 Toks I own.... A marked difference in handling between Red Army Standard ammo, PPU ammo and surplus ammo. Not a bad thing at all, mind you....
    One minor problem... I got a bad mag. Looked like some drunk Bolshevik tried to hammer out a bent feed lip with a screwdriver and a rock. It misfed like crazy in all three Toks.
    Now, THIS is why I love Classic and still do business with em all these years later... They sent me not one, but TWO replacement mags for it! These folks take care of their customers!!!!!

    Happy with my purchase. Gun arrived in great shape, with thin oil throughout. One blob of grease in the hammer mechanism.

    Slight holster-wear perhaps, visible on the left side of the slide.

    Really clean barrel. The photo attempt of the inside shows some blue. That's TV-image reflecting THROUGH the clean barrel to the camera.

    I used a little Mother's polish on the slide, and realized it was beginning to take the blue-ing off. Oops.

    I'd recommend the purchase.

    First off, wow! Excellent customer service. I ordered this the day before the $20 sale price was listed. Asked them about it, and boom, email notifcation of a $20 refund. It took about a week and a half for it to ship, but since I live in NC, it didnt take long to get to my FFL. It was covered in some kind of oil so be prepared for that, but after taking it apart and cleaning it, it's as good as new. The magazines are a little stiff to load, but im used to double stack so thats probably why. I havent had a chance to shoot it yet, but I have no doubt it will function without fail. Thanks again Classic!

    Another ALL Star performance by the No. 1 Firearms Internet dealer! The Usual quick order processing, shipping and great packing. Arrived oily-well protected-in a plastic bag/box and included the all the extra goodies pictured.

    Exterior is 99++ % and once again, as we have come to expect, is at least as good as Brutus described it and with matching numbers.

    Looking down the barrel was a little scary as the Stalactites were in abundance BUT a little over night soak in mineral spirits and the barrel/bore is as nice as the exterior.

    This Tok runs smooth as silk (kinda like the two 92S's that I previously bought from Classic) and I wonder how Classic consistently not only gets the good stuff for us but it is the BEST of the good stuff on the Internet, at great prices.

    Hat's off again for another 5 star performance.

    A Huge thank you to the entire organization!!

To the people that hand select the firearms, always seem to pick one out as they were buying it for themselves. It is worth the extra $20 for it.

    I recently purchased aTT33 and the one I received was beautiful. The leather holster was broke in like your favorite baseball glove. I love the fact that I know this saw action and is a piece of gun history. After a nice cleaning, I went straight to the range and ran 100 rounds through it without a hitch, functioned perfect and at 25ft it was hitting 2" groupings out of the box! The slide was smooth and silky and locks open after last round. The trigger pull was medium light and smooth. My overall first impression was is that the TT33 is a excellent sidearm, well built and that it was a joy to shoot. I was able to easily obtain PPU Tokarev ammo at $21 for a 50rd box at my local gun shop, which surprised me since I live in a fairly small town. I can not say enough about how pleased I am with this pistol, it will be a gun range target shooting favorite. HURRY AND BUY ONE before the price jumps again!!

    Review by Brandon on 3/12/2015
    Quality
    I purchased 2 of these about a month ago. Both pistols were in excellent condition for 60 yr old surplus pistols. Like many others who posted reviews, I found both bores were heavily fouled with some sort of crud which appeared to be rust. It took me some time to get them cleaned out and I noticed afterwards there was just the slightest amount of pitting inside the barrels, with one pistol just slightly worse than the other. Since these guns are as old as my father, I was not surprised or disappointed. Both frames have their finish almost fully intact and have very few, if any knicks or dings.

    The one issue which I was a bit surprised about was the length of the recoil springs. When I field stripped them the springs popped out immediately after I removed the slide from the frame and I had a heck of a time getting the recoil spring back into the slide when reassembling them. I discovered I could easily get replacements springs so I decided to cut one down slightly to make reassembly easier.

    I took them both to the range 2 weeks ago and fired 50 rounds between the two of them. I had 0 issues with them, though having not fired a pistol in a year, my aim was a bit off. Since I had no issues with the cut spring, I cut the second one down too.

    All things considered I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Quality was as advertised and as my first surplus firearm purchase, better than I expected. This is my second purchase from classic and I'm planning on make more in the future.

    This is a great hand gun. Mine was made 1993. Arrived in excellent shape although the barrel had to be cleaned out. Took to range and put 100 rounds through it. No jams, no malfunctions. Sights fixed, simple and dead on. Bought this as back up gun for boar hunting. with 1700 fps and 550 lbs muzzle energy, I think this will do quite nicely. Holster was in good shape, as was the lanyard and the cleaning rod. fits nice to hand, great to shoot, recoil somewhat less than 8mm canik I had but that may be due to it being all metal without any plastic except maybe the handgrips.

    Glad l read the reviews and decided to order this pistol. The bore needed to be cleaned, and it was covered in oiled, but that just gave me a chance to get to know this gun. The appearance and finish was excellent. After cleaning the bore,it looked like a brand new gun. If not for some slight (very slight) wear on the slide rail, the pistol looked as if it had never been used. Have'nt fired it yet, but if it shoots as good as it looks, l can't see how it could get any better. Chambers as smooth as a baby's bottom. They say the Polish Tok is smoother,l don't see how it could. Guess l'll just have to order one and see when the good folks at Classic get another batch in. Like a kid on Xmas, l can't wait!

Barrel was dirty however after cleaning and scrubbing it is shinny and good bore. Hammer assembly had some rust which was removed. Took to range fired 50 round nose and 50 JHP. No issues. Felt recoil less than a 9mm and more than a 380. Rear sight was way off. Tapped sight after oiling and it moved no issue to center alignment. Now it is right on at 20 yards. Love the firearm.

    OK gang...Just finished cleaning and assembling my Tok TTC from Classic. Well...I gotta say, it is just like CLASSIC said it would be. Got it last night, stripped it down, dumped all parts except barrel in my ED's RED solution to soak overnight. Grabbed barrel, dipped it in ammonia and started scrubbing with barrel brush ..YUCK ..YUCK ..YUCK!! Grud, black goo..all kinds of stuff came out. So, dropped it back in ammonia for an overnight soak. Got up at 8, pulled barrel out and dumped in ED's RED for two more hours. Then began scrubbing with it submerged in solution and ...'you bet'...more crud and corruption came out. So,dropped it back in ED's RED and started one by one, pulling out parts and blowing them down with air, spray clean with WD-40, more air and got all parts clean as a whistle. Back to barrel...more scrubbing with it submerged and finally quit. Pulled it out, blow it down, WD-40 and a swab through barrel...saw just a bit of brown stuff..one more oily swab and all is clean white. And, barrel is now 'shiny' clean. "GOOD" rifling....OK boys,,,they did say 'dark bores'...You knew it when you bought it because they 'told you so'...BUT BUT BUT... She cleaned up really nice. And...I just spent a few minutes looking at the rest of the pistol... and...absolutely but absolutely NO ONE SCRATCH..NOT ONE "WEAR POINT" where bluing is gone. Yes..a 100% perfect coating. The pistol, (save barrel) is PRISTINE. I did ask for 'hand picked' and I believe I got what I paid for. I now have 8 ea. TT's. This is the best one (save barrel) that I own. BUT...that old barrel did clean up very nicely. I bought one that won't shoot, (not from Classic) because the firing pin is too short. I bought one, (not from Classic) that the magazine won't seat and 'hang fires'... I think, the manufacturer made these, tested them, (say 50-60 rounds) then put them up without cleaning the barrels. I think this as the trigger group wear is so slight. I mean it looks brand new and has very little of the bluing wear at the side where the slide comes by it. So kiddos... I got what I paid for, I got what they said I would get, thing is PRISTINE, (save barrel), and the barrel is in, my opinion, VERY GOOD condition after some serious cleaning.

    I just might buy me another one. So, 'Classic dun gud by me!"

    This was my second order from Classic Firearms. My first was a Mosin-Nagant M-44. I opted to pay extra for the hand select which was well worth it. The pistol arrived a few days later double boxed and packed in a baggie. It was covered in light oil. Upon inspection, the pistol looked new (for a nearly 60 year old pistol). The bore was clean and there was no exterior wear. The grips had a couple of small imperfections in the plastic but this could have been done by the importer who installed the safety. The holster and magazines which came with the pistol were in good shape as well. This was a great purchase and a great transaction.
    Excellent external condition, shoots fine, lots of crud in barrel
    Review by Jim on 12/31/2014
    Quality
    Used my C&R and the TTC came on time and as advertised (wrapped in plastic with lots of oil, spare magazine, cleaning rod, holster and two lanyards). Chose hand select for appearance and the external of the gun was at least very good and probably excellent. The bore was absolutely awful, like some of the other reviewers have said. I have never seen so much crud in a barrel (could not even see the rifling, and chunks of junk everywhere inside), and the first patch was rust brown. After numerous passes with solvent, brush, patch, and bore snake viper, the bore cleaned up relatively well. It shoots pretty well using the Rumanian Red Army ammo (2-3" groups at 25 ft, two handed), so the original barrel (the serial numbers match) is still doing its job. I did get a couple failures to lock back on empty (2 out of 4 first magazines). All in all, a good deal on a gun I bought for fun and to have a Korean War era Soviet bloc pistol (made in 1952), without expecting too much. No complaints with Classic and the service provided. Only suggestion would be to ship it with a bore flag...but that's a personal preference.
    Very nice pistols

    I ordered two of the Romanian Tokarev pistols. I received both in just over one week. I had to wait several weeks to get ammo. When I finally got the ammo I headed to the range.
    One of the pistols worked fine, the other one had a problem. The first round fired fine, the slide came back far enough to pick up the next round but not far enough to lock the hammer back. I tried several times and each time the hammer would not stay back.
    I emailed Classic and detailed the problem. The next day they emailed a pre paid shipping label to return the pistol. Less than one week I later I had the replacement pistol. The finish on this one is way better than the one I returned.
    This one fires fine.
    Classic customer service is top notch. I would order from them any time.

    Picked up my pistol today at my FFL. Dealer We took it out of the box it was sealed in plastic coated with oil and looks to be in mint condition. I am very pleased with the fit and finish and the trigger seems to be crisp. Give it 4 stars because I have not had it to the range yet. This pistol is in like new condition.

    This my 2nd Classic firearms purchase. First was Romanian WASR 10. Love it. Right out of the box, like many of the other reviews state the Tokarev is soaking in oil, barrel looks great the finish looks brand new and consistent all over. Leather accessories used but free of dry rot. Still a lot of use left. A handsome piece to go with my 9mm Makarov. If I could get a Nagent 1895 my collection would be complete! Going to the range my next day off. Will update if there are any problems! Good job Classic Firearms

    ANOTHER Great Reason to buy a Tok!
    Review by Big John/Georgia on 11/12/2014
    Quality
    I reviewed my 2 Tok purchases a couple of years ago here at Classic, but as a new dimension to this pistol revealed itself, I felt it important to share with the folks on here for further insight.
    I've found that WOMEN REALLY cotton to this pistol! My wife and both daughters learned to shoot with my Romy Toks. and they loyally LOVE them. Here's why.....
    They are bone-easy to handle and operate, and they're reliable as sunrise. Women love this pistol because the grip on it is on the smaller side. Maybe commies were simply born with small hands, I don't know..... But the smaller grips are very amenable to the American female hand. They can manage the grip on this gun better than others, and thus can control the recoil better than they can on most OTHER pistols, whose grips are traditionally built for MALE hands. If you have a lady friend or female loved one you want to introduce to shooting, this pistol is very training-friendly to that end.
    They also love it because although probably unintentional by the designers, this pistol CC's VERY well, because it is so SLIM. It fits into a purse and conceals just as handily as it does in a conceal holster.
    Neither Tok I own has EVER jammed or stove-piped on us in 2 1/2 years of mucho useage, even when I've stuck some really bogus Polish crap in them with cracked necks! Like the AK-47, it eats ALL food, regardless of quality. It is entirely made of military-grade steel, the exception being the grips. No polymer ANYWHERE in this gun. It will outlive US, by design.
    The ladies deserve every bit of the stopping power in a pistol as WE do. That said, I will not leave defense pieces in .25 caliber for them to wield, just because they're girls. If a scumbag breaks in while I'm away, every lady in the house can competently handle the Toks, and do what must be done.
    I use one every single day as a CC piece. Like the AK, this pistol is known for turning cover into concealment in a real hurry! My original reason for buying one? I saw a video of a Tok absolutely SHREDDING a Toyota Forerunner brake drum. Just blowing big chunks out of it like it was made of paper..... The 7.62x25 bullet it fires is basically a shortened rifle round, and the surplus ammo for this gun fires at an average of 2000 FPS. Compare that to the average .45 round, which fires at 895 FPS, and is a much tougher horse to control recoil-wise for women. The Tok round also shreds level III Kevlar like wonder bread.
    God forbid, you ever have to draw on another human being. But if I do, or the ladies of the house do, I'd rather we had MORE ballistic mustard than less at our disposal......
    One nice Tokarev!

    First I have to say Classic has the fastest shipping. Ordered the gun on a Saturday morning, it shipped on Monday, and arrived on Wednesday. I didn't pay for the hand select, so I was hoping for a decent one. Well, to my surprise, the Tokarev I got is in great condition. No holster wear at all, and the blueing was great. The bore was a bit dark in the grooves, but after a little Blue Wonder, and a brush, it was spotless, and the rest of the gun needed only minor cleaning. As for shooting, I picked up a couple of boxes of S&B ammo from a local source, and headed to the range this past weekend. The Tokarev is definitely fun to shoot. Recoil is minimal, it does have a nice bark, and I'm sure once I have a little more time with it, accuracy will not be too bad either, as at 10 yards, with no adjustments to the sights, was still able to keep a nice pattern. This is my third purchase from Classic, and it will definitely not be my last. Thanks again Classic, first class all the way.
    Very Happy :-) :-)

    Romanian TTC Tokarev Pistol - 7.62x25 

    Well, I hate to be the one to lower the evaluation score but my opinion differs from most of the other reviewers. While I was pleased to make my first purchase from CF, this firearm did not meet my expectations. I opted for the "hand select" hoping that doing so would ensure one of the best specimens available, but what I received instead was a marginally refinished Tok. The pistol that I received showed a significant variation in the blueing on the slide, evidence of the original finish near the magazine release where the new blueing did not "take", and a very poor bore. After a through cleaning of the bore I found that the barrel rifling was heavily worn and lightly pitted. The holster was in VERY poor condition, the tip of the cleaning rod was bent, and while I did receive two lanyards- the leather belt displayed in the picture was not included. Despite this, I accepted the package and signed for it hoping that a call to customer service could possibly rectify at least the holster issues with a possible swap. Instead what I got was essentially a "too bad" response from the dismissive representative.

    In summation- The pistol was what I'd call "average" and the accessories were below average. I'm happy to have been able to include this unique piece to my collection, but if you're a serious collector or someone who is a stickler for detail and quality I'd suggest that you keep realistic expectations. This item is by no means was a "5" as so many have described it and I'd save your $20 and skip the hand select option.

    Very Impressed

    Upon receipt of the package and initial inspection. The Tok was definitely in EXCELLENT condition. I suspect unissued as there was zero bluing wear on it. The contents were packaged well, Tok was covered in the usual heavy oil, the accessories were all there and in great shape. After a complete disassembly and clean up with mineral spirits and hot water. Visually inspected all parts, lubed and re-assembled. Shot 4 mags worth of ammo down range (S&B noon-corrosive),picked up my brass re-cleaned the firearm. Immediately logged back into to Classic Firearms and ordered another one!

    As this was my first purchase from Classic Firearms, I didn't know what to expect when I opened the box and inspected my Tokarev pistol. Any fears I may have had were put to rest when I saw the as advertised, truly excellent condition of the pistol. (I did check the hand select box). It really is in like new condition, and I can't wait to try it out. I saw other Tokarevs advertised elsewhere for not too much less money and in lesser condition, but do yourself a favor and pay the extra bucks for this one. You won't be dissappointed. The holster that came with the gun is in very good used condition, and with a little leather cleaner will look great.

    Well got my Tokarev from my FFl today. It was soaked in oil and dripping out of the box. Cleaned it all up and I think it is new other than a test fire. Functions well. Has a hard trigger pull. I love it. The holster looks new other than sitting in storage for years. Has no marks inside indicating a pistol has ever been in it. Was so tight I about broke my fingernail off stuffing the pistol in it. Hope it stretches out some. I put some pledge on it and it looks nice and shiny. Don't plan on a quick draw out of that holster. So basically I am very happy with the entire purchase, love the gun and the holster. Thanks again classic. Wish I had bought two more.

    The FFL told me "You're going to like this one"
    and he was on the money. The quality of the Romanian Finish was Coltesque. Literally Colt Dark Blue. The slide and Trigger were simply perfectly melded to the frame. I was in awe of the Romanian workmanship. Just in awe. These will go down as the best of all Toks. Better than Russian, Polish or Yugos. I don't know if the East Germans made any, but the Romanians will be hard to beat. I don't think Colt, Smith and Wesson or Ruger could do any better. This one feels like a Sig its so well done.

The bore was shiny, and the bluing was great ( a couple of minor scratches from storage on the left side of the slide was the only defect. A little cold bluing took care of that).

    nearly new 1956 Tokarev
    Review by Henry on 12/21/2013
    Quality
    The TTC came yesterday and I just got back from the range: if you don't have one, get one ASAP. Mine came with the hand-select option and an extra Taiwanese magazine. Aside from the long wait due to backed up holiday orders, this was a highly gratifying experience. The pistol and mag were well-packed. The Tokarev looks like it could be three or four years old. The grips have mild wear, the frame and slide look new, and the barrel hasn't seen much use. The rifling is sharp with no sign of corrosion. The added safety catch thumbs off and on without breaking my hold on the grip. The import markings aren't huge and fairly out of the way on the frame.
    The sights are the standard (poor) military version. To bring out the sight picture, I painted a white U around the rear sight notch and after squaring off the back of the front sight, a dot of red paint there. It makes a difference. All the internals came clean and oiled and look new, so other than getting used to the disassembly and reassembly there was nothing tedious about preparing it to shoot.
    For a full-size pistol, the TTC is relatively light and the narrow slide and short grip make it easy to conceal. In firing, the grip is still long enough to get a good two-handed hold. Recoil is quite manageable and the trigger action is quite good. I got good combat accuracy from this gun, which was all I was looking for.
    The Tokarev has an assertive report and an impressive muzzle flash, but for such a powerful handgun, it's no wrist-breaker and I could shoot it all day.
    Thanks to the folks at Classic Firearms for selling me this fine and somewhat overlooked hard-hitting, fun-shooting historical firearm.

    I ordered three Romanian TTC pistols, each with the hand select upgrade. Classic Firearms shipped my order the same day I placed it. It arrived just a few days later. Each pistol was in new condition and appeared to be unfired. The only blemishes -- and they were very minor -- were small areas of lighter bluing on the left side of the slides, probably from resting on their left sides in storage for sixty years. These small, lighter streaks in the blueing were easy to touch up with cold blue, and are now barely visible. These pistols are a pleasure to shoot. The 7.62 X 25 Tokarev is a very hot round, yet the recoil is very light. The safetys work very smoothly, and the trigger feel is quite good on two of the three pistols. The third one was quite tough as received, but in working on it, it has now been lightened-up acceptably. I am very pleased with the service received from Classic Firearms, and also with the quality of these three pistols. Order without hesitation; you won't be disappointed and I don't think you hope for a better deal. I will be ordering again!

    I was on the fence about buying one of these due to how clunky and chunky it looks. Though after watching several YT videos over a few weeks, and coming to Classics site to look at them.....then the $199.99 and it was the last nail in the coffin and I bought on. Even right out of the box with cosmo on the slide it's still slick. Take it down and put 10-15min worth of cleaning with some rags, solvent and CLP and shes slick as snot! Trigger creeps but overall it is NOT bad! It has good weight, really good balance overall and feels good in the hand. Excellent shooter and a great fun little addition to my milsurp collection! A+!!

    I am new to collecting military surplus guns and was somewhat reluctant to purchase a used firearm that is 60 years old. l mean, how could a pistol that is that old and used by the Romanian Army for many years still have any life left in it? My Tokarev arrived in incredible condition. l would say the blueing is at about 95% condition with only 2 very small places on one side of the slide with a little wear. Other than that the bluein is perfect. lt is a very deep, highly poloshed blue too. The frame to slide fit is very nice and the trigger is so muh crisper and loghter than many of my 1911s that cost four times the price of the Tokarev. This is by far the most gun l have ever boight for the money. The only problem is findin ammo for it. l can't wait to shoot it but l guess l will have to.

It was packed loosely in a cardboard box, which in itself would have been ok if it weren't for the fact that Class Firearms tossed in the extra magazine into the box with no wrapping whatsoever. So the magazine and the gun were flopping and sliding all around during shipment. I also understand this is an old gun and therefore will not be in perfect shape, however I am almost positive that the wear marks on the left side of the slide are a direct result of the magazine rubbing on the gun during transit. This isn't a big deal, but when you are paying an extra 15 dollars for a hand select option, I was not pleased.
    almost flawless

    The pistol looks almost perfect. A couple of minor scuffs on the slide and a tiny ding on the front sight. On the range it shot perfectly. With Winchester ammo it shot tight groups and is great fun to shoot. Just need more vintage magazines. I didn't buy extras with the pistol as I was reading that they were new from Taiwan or somewhere.
    excellent condition

    Ordered 3 Romanian Tokarev pistols with the hand select option. All 3 were in nearly identical excellent condition. The guns are relatively clean but the firing pin, and firing pin spring should be removed and cleaned. One of the guns had light strikes to the primer which ended after cleaning. Very good value.

    Let me start by staying this is my first gun I acquired through classic fire arms and unfortunately not a good experience. I PAY FOR THE HAND SELECTION OF THE BEST 5 and it wasn't a great deal. One of the grips is has a crack on the side and what holds the safety that is two C-clips those are missing too. So complete waste of money for the hand pick option.

    The tokarev I received from Classic was simply stunning. The pistol looked like it had come right off the assembly line in 1953. Virtually no rust with small spots here and there but nothing that could not get taken care of. Blueing was about 99% my FFL thought it was a new gun. Wish I had ordered recently when they dropped the price down to $199 but I still feel I got a good deal. Bought a Mosin 3 months ago and that was excellent as well. I only buy my surplus firearms from Classic because I know they only sell quality stuff.

    I just received my TTC. And I have to say Classic Firearms has made my day again very nice. For being made in 1953 it looks bran new. The factory safety add on was very hard, but after breaking the pistol down and removing the safety the problem was very noticeable there was a metal slither left behind from the drill bit. Just took a little file to it and very smooth now. Packing was professionally done. Great job guys. I think I am going to get two more one for the wife and another one for me. And always big shot out to Ben. God bless you.....

    Review by Mike on 11/7/2013
    Quality
    I ordered my Romanian TTC Tokarev pistol online and within 2 days it was at my FFL ready to be picked up, now that's fast ! I got it home and opened the box, I was very happy with what I saw. I paid the $ 15 for hand select and all things considered I got a very nice pistol with a nice shiny bore. Bluing was 100% and all numbers matched. I felt I got lucky and got a pistol with the small import stamp on the frame and not the big one on the slide, also got the "star" grips I hoped for. The only "defects" was a hair size scratch on the slide, barely noticeable, and the front sight right corner was some how rounded off . All in all this was in excellent condition for being made 60 years ago in communist Romania, and is what I expected. I would say these guns are being refirbished here in the states when the safety is being added, as the import engraving is blued over with the rest of the finish. Fired 4 mags worth at the range and ran 100%, it hit about 3" high at 10m and grouped nicely. I have wanted a tokarev for years and glad I jumped on this deal. Classic really impressed me with my first ever purchased. -Thanks !
    Perfect condition!

    I bought one of these locally, but its Romanian and built in 1953 so I thought I'd review it here.

    I love this gun. It has never malfunctioned on me ever. I'm a fan of the grips, a lot of people don't like them but this is the second most comfortable gun I've ever held, the first being a 1911. I even like the location of the safety. I think its right were it should be. Reproductions and norincos have them higher and farther back.

    I trust this enough to carry it whenever I don't need to conceal.

    This pistol was my first purchase from Classic Firearms and I am very happy with it. I have another TTC that was made in the Radom plant that is not near as nice. This TTC made in the Cugir plant looks new. Looks like it was never fired. When I dry fire it the trigger is excellent, as nice a trigger pull as any semi-auto I own.

    1st: haven't shot it, my local shops are out of ammo. That being said, this pistol looks like it sat in a draw for 50 years. It looks brand new. I stripped it, cleaned it (which is didn't need) and lube it up and can't wait o to get some shells. It is really nice. I did have it picked for 15 bucks but considering the quality of what I was sent I would do it again in a second. If you're thinking of picking one of these up don't wait. If it shoots as good as it looks I'll get a couple extra to put away.

    I owned a pair of Toks in the 90s, an original Soviet 43 vintage unit and a Norinco. Both, unfortunately fell victim to a burglary. This is the first chance I've had to replace those venerable old guns, and boy was I pleasantly surprised. The originals had no "safety" other than the half cock. The Norincos was so bad about biting the shooter that I removed it. This unit's is a delight. Well placed and functional. Mine is flawless, dated 1953, and smooth as glass. You cant go wrong with this unit.

    Bought back in July 2013; paid extra for hand select. My transfer FFL said it was among the nicest he had ever seen.

    We have a war prize Tok TT33 my father bartered for with American cigarettes and Hersey chocolates from a Soviet soldier he met when WWII ended. It is still a fine pistol to shoot to this day. When a found a 20 year younger version of the same I couldn't pass it up.
    I paid extra for the hand select. I believe it was worth it. What arrived looked brand new. Not a scratch or wear mark anywhere. It is highly accurate and easy to clean/field strip. Though made in 1953 the clip from our 1937 war-prize works like a champ in the new one. The after market new clips we bought work great also. All rounds go bang with every trigger pull. Have yet to have a FTF, FTE or a stove-pipe.
    The only caveat I will pass along is the ammo is very difficult to find. There are few suppliers and even less inventory. I would have given a 5 star rating if ammo was cheap and available.
    Thank You Classic FireArms

    Review by Matt on 7/19/2013
    Quality
    Not my first purchase with Classic, but it is the first firearm I've bought through them. Shipped fast - Ordered 07/15 and picked it on 07/18.
    Overall it is in excellent condition. The only "blemish" in the finish being around the lanyard ring; nothing serious especially considering its 60 years old. Neither the barrel, nor magazine are as pretty looking, but again that's expected. The bore however is bright, shiny and mirror-like. It doesn't look like very many rounds have been put through it. Everything functions well; slide movement is very smooth.

    What was odd was that it has Polish hand grips. I'm not certain if that's common? A little disappointed in that since I paid the extra $15, but if it was down to the condition of the finish, or the hand grips I'll take the nicer finish.

    In all, I'm again quite satisfied with Classic and wouldn't hesitate to do business with them again. Thanks guys!

    This is my first purchase from Classic FireArms.
    Used my C&R License and got my order in 3 days. It would have been 2 days except for the 4th of July is a holiday.
    The TTC has got to be new. If made in 1953 can be new. Not a scratch or wear mark anywhere. Field stripped and removed a small amount of cosmoline. I am sure I was the first to push the clip that holds the slide lock back. There was no evidence this had ever been done before.
    The 7.62x25mm Tok rounds carry a good wallop. I am sure the bite is worse than the bark. The rounds I used from PPU are rated with more ft. lbs. of energy than a 9mm.
    Extra clips are available online.
    I would definitely buy from Classic Firearms again.

    Well It has taken me a while to post my review of this pistol but I gotta say. I was sure impressed with it. this is my fourth gun I have bought from Classic and I am never disappointed. I opted for the hand select and extra mag but the coolest thing about the pistol I received is that i don't think that it had ever been fired. When I broke it down for the first time I put the first signs of wear on the case by sliding the retaining pin out and i know if it had been used before that would have already been there. The bore of the gun was perfect as well and boy was I surprised at how well it shot. Mine was very accurate and definitely has the punch to it. Would not want to be on the receiving end of this thing for sure! To sum it up is is a great gun and a great buy. Thanks again Classic for another outstanding gun!

    This is the second of four guns purchased to date from classic. The TTC has better feel than my CZ52 and has the big plus of the mag drop button. Single stack and slim makes it a good carry. Sportsman's guide sells a 7.62x25 hollow point jig for those inclined to DIY. Paid for hand select and gun appears to be unissued or very lightly used. It is as if someone opened a time capsule from 1956. Chamber walls are twice as thick as the CZ, so no doubt Fedor Vasilievich Tokarev's Romanian stepchild can stand up to all the heat of whichever milsurp ammo you can get a hold of . Though some people like the milder 7.63x25 mauser parent cartridge for range use, and serbian 7.63 is available brand new. Just wish there was a cure for Mosin fever, which classic firearms seems all to willing to encourage.

    Nice little shooter for the money! Mine arrived quickly and in great shape. Shot just fine, but I did clean the heck out of it first. I bumped the rear sigjht to get it dead on at 25 yards and it's very accurate. Sights are supposedly "non adjusable". No problem for a little hammer and small punch with a rag over it. Great deal for the money. Take your mags apart and clean and oil them before you shoot. I actually ran a file down the inside lip of my magazines while I had them apart after a couple FTF. Works great now. I keep it in the truck :)

    I was very happy after opening the box. The finish was very nice. Physically it looks kind of awkward, but it feels extremely nice. Good trigger and shoot very well using S&B 85gr fmj ammo I have. Left a big grin on my silly face. It's also very thin and conceals well.
    Exactly as advertised

    It can be a bit of a leap of faith to purchase a used product on line from a retailer that you have not done business with. The bluing on the gun was 99% outstanding, and more than I could have hoped for - and I didn't even select the hand pick option. I like the gun so much I put an order in for the Yugoslavian Tokareve.
    Keep up the good work!

    This gun is incredible. The only reason I give 4 stars is because one of the plates came of the grip. Otherwise, it fires smoothly for such an old pistol and looks brand spanking new. You will be in awe that a piece of history you're firing or just looking at as a shelf piece was offered for such a low price. Classic, once again, offers stellar products and customer service! I want the Yugoslav version next... I am waiting for my excellent/very good Yugoslavian Mauser to arrive before purchasing the Yugo version, Tokarev. It's my next buy!

    But trust me on this, your jaw will drop at the site, feel, and history for the price you pay when it arrives. Ran 50 rds. of corrosive ammo from the 1970's through it and had 0 FTF's! Buy this Romanian Tokarev and you likely won't disappointed! You'll be astonished as I was!

    The Classic description was no lie. I paid for the hand select.
    The weapon was almost perfect nice bluing and the bore was mint. Took it to the range and cycled 50 rounds. it functioned flawlessly and I got some nice groupings (6 inch) at 20 yards. Although I will not walk around with the gun in battery, If ammo ever becomes avaialble again with hollow points this will become my hunting side arm. It is a nice neat peice of history built when I was in 1953.
    My new everyday carry!
    Review by Sammy Zen U on 3/24/2013
    Quality
    I bought this pistol as a companion piece for my PPS 43c. It seemed like a no brainer as they are chambered in the same caliber. Even though I should have expected it from the reviews I was still surprised at the quality of the pistol when I received it. Once the cosmoline was removed I could find no visible wear to the bluing or visible chips/scratches on the grips. Mine was dated 1952 and the action was flawless, the bore was mirror shiny and it felt great in the hand. Some people complain about the grips or add Hogue grips, I thought it felt perfectly natural in my hand. It shoots well, is reasonably accurate from self defense distances and has less recoil the my 40 cal. pistols.

    This gun has an extremely slim profile making it's perfect for concealed carry. We are talking Magnum pressures here! I have found a source for loaded ammo with an 85 grain Hornady XTP hollowpoint that pushes out of the barrel at @1700 fps! Most impressive! The only modification I have made was to add a dot of white nail polish to the back of the front post sight. This has made for easier sight acquisition.

    I carry IWB in a quality leather holster and honestly I forget I have it on. I don't even mess with the ridiculous safety that was added on. I use the originally intended half cock safety. With it in half cock you can't rack the slide or pull the trigger and you couldn't force the hammer to strike the firing pin with a sledgehammer. Use the added on safety without the half-cock though and you ask for trouble. It is not a firing pin block.

    When it's time to shoot, pull the hammer the rest of the way back, pull the trigger and........BANG! Just as Fedor Tokarev intended!

    This pistol is my new everyday carry!

    Can't wait to see the M44 carbine I ordered!
    Great Shooter!

    Having just received my C&R FFL, this was my first collectible firearm purchase. I wasn't sure what to expect. I opted for the hand select to get the best condition I could. The pistol arrived with a light coating of cosmoline and cleaned up nicely. The finish is very good to excellent with a few rub marks on the left side of the slide. Most importantly, to me, the bore is in absolutely excellent condition with mirror brightness and not a speck of pitting or roughness.

    I couldn't wait to shoot it, so after some cleaning up I took it to the indoor range. Even though the sights are minimalistic and non-adjustable, I was very pleased with the accuracy. The windage is spot on and it shoots a tight group if I do my part. I plan to put a little dab of white paint on the front sight blade to help with sight acquisition.

    The pistol is very comfortable in the hand and recoil is very manageable, helped in part I'm sure by the weight and length of the firearm.

    I have never seen a pistol fling brass so far as this one does! So if you want to keep your brass and shoot outdoors you may need a "spotter" just to keep track of where it lands!

    The magazine is a little worn and sometimes it a bit difficult to remove. All in all, however, I'm quite happy and it is just plain fun to shoot.

    The pistol feels tight with no slop or play. My biggest surprise was how good the trigger is. I did not expect such a smooth pulling trigger with this crisp a release.

    I'm glad I made this purchase.

    Received the "Tokarev" Pistol last week, slathered in cosmoline (seen a lot worse), cleaned said pistol, checked her over (good bore,etc.)...Paid extra for "hand select" couple of nicks, but not bad. No 5 stars this time though, grip is loose on one side, doesn't come off mind you, just a little bit annoying while shooting. (took off to see if I could rectify the situation) but to no avail...Plowed through 75 rounds without a hiccup, brilliant! Report and flash are like one of the "Bismarck's" cannon, accuracy also decent. Groovy! So simple a Hamster could field strip it! Like I said previously "Love Eastern Bloc stuff!"

    This is my second firearm purchased from Classic. Just like the first, a CZ 82, my TTC is in excellent shape. This order took a good deal longer to get to me, but considering the current craziness, that was expected. In fact, the people at Classic was able to get it to me within the expected delay time.
    After getting the old oil cleaned off, the gun looks like new. It it to the range, and shot 100 rounds of PRVI ammo through it, no problems. I will need more range time to get used to the sights. The one draw back to the gun is the current lack of ammo for it. Hopefully, that will ease up a bit after things settle down. To sum up, GREAT GUN and, considering the circumstances they were operating under, GREAT SERVICE

    The Romanian TTC Tokarev pistol I received from Classic was in excellent condition, I could not have been more pleased with it. This gun is very powerful, but seems to have less recoil than my Glock 17. Also, when you shoot it, flames come out the barrel like it was some sort of cannon. People at the range were impressed. The 7.62x25 round is supposed to defeat body armor, that is good if you ever come accross an enemy with a bullet proof vest. I did order an extra mag which I had a problem with, but Classic exchanged it for a new one. Shipping is always fast with Classic. I can't wait until they get some surplus 7.62x25 back in stock.

    When my Tokarev arrived at my FFL, I went in to check it out and signed the paperwork. The reaction of the gun dealer(s) were the same as my own: "Wow, that's a nice looking gun."

    The description doesn't lie, these are NICE looking guns! I didn't opt for the Hand Select option and the thing looks practically unused. Only the tiniest holster bluing wear on the side of the muzzle, but I mean TINY.

    The barrel looked good and shiny, a little rough, but after a good scrubbing, boiling water, the works, it looks much better. I took it shooting and blew out a hole the size of a silver dollar with 2-3 clips from 25ft. At 30 yards, the spread is significantly bigger, but it's still on the target.

    Wonderful gun, get one before they're gone!
    (Also, Classic Arms is probably one of, if not THE, best price for these. I compared for weeks...)

    Review by Gary B on 9/10/2012
    Quality
    Received my Romanian Tokarev earlier this week and I simply couldn't be more pleased. I assume these are completely reconditioned before they leave the arsenal, because the finish was as close to brand new as you could imagine. Even the sharp edges around the muzzle and trigger guard showed absolutely no loss of finish. The only area where the bluing was worn through, but only just slightly, was on the knurled ridges on the hammer. Really fantastic!

    The bore was pretty grungy, on the other hand, but some quality time with a bore brush and solvent helped a lot. The grooves are slightly darkened -- maybe that's a result of corrosive primer? But the ridges polished up to a mirror finish.

    And the best part? This thing is super-accurate! On my very first magazine I had a grouping of less than 6 inches at about 15 yards -- having never fired it before. And it kept on doing that through about 75 rounds with flawless cycling -- not a single hang-up. I would definitely recommend this pistol and Classic Firearms!
    Outstanding!

    Another winner from Classic! This one arrived in like-new condition (hand select option used) and is a tremendous value for the amount paid. To make that point, the price was so reasonable that I bought this Romanian TTC variant to see how it compared to the Polish TTC that I bought earlier. I think that I like the Polish variant slightly better, but I'm not sure why. Both are brilliantly made. The magazines are still a bit crude (sides ground down to fit), but they are adequate for plinking, etc. If you need more precisely-made mags, they are available through other channels.

    On a separate note, Classic has *really* stepped up to the plate with huge improvements to their online ordering system, and their customer service is currently as good as you'll find anywhere.

    Review by Seth on 5/25/2012

    I ordered one of these fine pistols a couple months ago. Since the new site has a review feature, I figured I would offer my 2 cents.

    The Romanian TTC is compact and packs quite a punch! I know some people wouldn't recommend a gun like this for conceal carry, but how slim it is makes it very comfortable to carry all day, even inside-the-waistband. (I am unaware of any manufacturer who makes an IWB holster for this gun, so I made my own.)

    If you are considering it as a unique and powerful carry gun, Wolf makes some Hollow Points in 7.62 x 25mm. They can be pricy and hard to come by, so just stick to the cheap surplus stuff for target practice.

    My brother carries a Springfield .45 XD, but the first time he fired my Tok he immediately pulled $200 out of his wallet and said "You gotta get me one!" He was particularly impressed with how easy it was to handle, despite the powerful cartridge. I would compare the 7.62 Tokarev round to a 9mm+P, but with better ballistics.
    The gun seems to shoot high at <25 yards, although this seems to be common of Tokarevs.

    If you are used to modern polymer guns, you may be surprised by how heavy this seemingly compact gun is. All steel construction, except for the plastic grips, is I think what makes this smaller gun so easy to handle and quick to re-engage with the target.

    Over-all, it is compact, handles well, durable, and a fine piece of history. I would highly recommend this gun.
    I love these things!

    What a great little piece of commie rock and roll! Before purchasing, I watched videos of this gun blowing chunks out of a Toyota Forerunner brake drum, and I also saw video of it penetrating a kevlar helmet with ease, something the .22, 9m, 40 cal, and the .357 FAILED to do. The surplus ammo is still relatively cheap, but getting kinda scarce. If you can land some, this is a relatively cheap gun to shoot. The accuracy is very good for a handgun, the kick is not bad at all, and it makes respectable groupings and holes. It fires reliably, with NO visible or detectable quirks. For the safety-minded folks, this gun actually comes with 2 different safetys! An Ideal weapon for home defense, Conceal-carry, or target shooting.
    My daughter fell in love with the thing, and we wound up buying another one for her for her birthday. We are now a twin Tok household.
    One note, do NOT dry-fire these weapons! The older firing pin design precludes that, and will compromise the pin. Buy those plastic dry fire bullets, and dry fire to your heart's content!
    Easy to operate, dismantle, clean and re-assemble. As much as commie ideology really sucks, I love the simplicity and reliablility of their firearms.
    5 stars
