Known in its time as a formidable weapon, with good penetration and effective range, the Tokarev TT-33 was used by the Soviet Red Army and police from the 1930's through the 1970's. The reliable Tokarev TT is a short recoil-operated, locked-breech pistol that's easy to maintain. It uses Browning swinging link system, borrowed from the Colt M1911 pistol, modified to simplify production. The single-action trigger has no safeties, other than disconnector to prevent out-of-battery fire and a half-cock notch on the hammer. The hammer unit was made as a single unit, making it easily detachable for cleaning and maintenance. This single-action-only pistol features a fixed blade front sight with a rear notch and an 8-round magazine. Its grips and bore are in good condition and its metal is in fair condition.
