I was thinking of getting a cheap 9mm for range use . And my Dad
is selling some of his gun collection , and has a some Tokarevs
a 30 caliber and a 9mm . I have ruled out the 30 because most ranges don't allow 30's indoors. But he has a 9mm and i was just wondering how durable these guns are ? and for $100 bucks i think it might be a great little cheap range gun . Just wondering if anyone has had experience with these guns ? Thanks

I had one of the Norinco 213s in the early '90s - sold it to a friend (for $100.00, by the way, in 1993) who needed a gun, and have regretted that sale ever since.

I used it for a range gun and for a "leave in the lockbox in the car" gun. It wasn't 100% with the hollowpoints I tried in it, so I loaded it with black-tip UZI-brand carbine ammo (probably what we'd now call +P). It worked fine. It was always great to shoot at the range, if not the most accurate gun I owned.

The TT-33 design is a fine descendant of the 1911, and it pretty nifty. If I could find a nice condition Chinese Tok for a bill, I'd buy it as quick as I could get my wallet out.

I love my Polish .30 Tok, by the way, and I enjoy shooting it more than I did the 9x19 - more accurate than my Norinco was, and the CRACK! of the 7.62x25 really turns heads. I understand why they don't want you shooting it in/through their indoor ranges, though - it's a penetrating SOB. And the 9x19 is certainly cheap.

Buy it! :D

I briefly had three of them in 9mm. They all worked fine with FMJ ammo. I did not try hollow points. IMHO at $100 they are a heck of a deal. That is about what I paid for them and sold them for to upgrade to better pistols. I did notice that the magazines from one pistol would not necessarily fit into another pistol. I would buy another one for $100 if I ever get the chance. Watch-Six
