    Hi Fellow THR'ers,

    I saw a nice T-58 or m-58 9mm at a dealer's table today. I held off buying
    as I had no sense of how this pistol came to be or what sort of reputation
    it has.

    I assume its in the Tokarev T-33 family. It had a "hammer and sickle" stamp
    on the left side and I recall the words "Super 12" on the right side of the
    slide. It has a crude import dictated add-on manual safety. The salesman
    said the fingerrest grips were import dictated, too. Looks solid but I did
    not examine it enough to ask good questions, I assumed I would have some reference book at home to help me sort out most of the facts before
    bothering you folks.

    Closest I've come is an image of the FEG Tokagypt 58 and the image shows
    that name very clearly on the slide but the pistol did not. The image also
    had a factory smooth safety, normal military grips and an extended finger
    grip base on the mag while the pistol I saw did not. I'll look very closely
    at the pistol next week and take the image with me but the more I know
    before I get there the better.

    Any info or advice will be appreciated.
