    A handi rifle in 7.62x25 would be sweet!

    Maybe we could convince MCA Sports to make a Chamber Adapter?

    They do make an adapter, they just call it 30 mauser instead of 7.62x25tok. These two rrounds are pretty much the same in a similar manner of 5.56x45vs.223 or 7.62x51vs308

    but stick one of these in a rifle at your own risk! Many times they won't come out.

    Saw some guy on AK47.net that was trying to put together an AK-pattern in that caliber. I don't know if anything came of it, but it wasn't going to be mass produced in any event.

    Might get Bullberry to whip you up a Contender barrel in that caliber.

    Also keep in mind all that cheap, cheap 7.62 surplus is corrosive and probably not even close to match grade.

    I used to think I wanted a PPS43, but found out that (for me) rifles chambered for rimless pistol calibers aren't as much fun unless they have the happy switch (i.e. full auto). That's out of my price range, so I'll stick to my TT33.

    I have all the bits to make an AK in Tok, and hopefully will get it build by spring. If you look around the homebrew sections of various gun boards you can find a number of people who have made them.

    I've also toyed with the idea of converting a .32-20 lever action to Tokarev...I haven't taken a close look at the internals (and I know little about lever guns in general), but if I find a good deal on a .30-20 with a ruined barrel I'll definitely buy it up to experiment with.

    id want a repeater of some type though, bolt action may do it. lever would be cool. i wouldnt want to break open every shot.

    If you go the chamber adapter route, you need to reload it every shot so its not a big deal.

    i wonder if a 32-20 lever rifle could be re-chambered for the tokarev?

    It seems close enough dimensionally.

    i dont see why they didnt make rifles in this caliber, the ammos 10cents a round. and powerful. and loud.

    id love a camp carbine type thing that takes tt33 mags

    Count me in!

    Oh, yeah! :evil:

    I have CZ52, so I have the ammo and reload for it already - no sweat. I could use a Marlin CampTok (or... would it be a GulagTok? :p) and you could use the CZ52 mag and make high cap mags and even drums.. why not? Or have it setup to take a PPSh drum! Oh, man, I'm getting excited.

    Yeah, the round is a hot one, and lots of fun. Let's see, a Contender barrel, a Ruger with rotary six round (?) mag, maybe even a little Bullpup configuration so you could shoot it from your truck (I know, I mean where it's LEGAL :scrutiny:).

    Make sure the bores are true .308 for us handloaders. And chrome line the bore and some of the action (or do stainless) for those who shoot that nasty corrosive :barf: Commie ammo. :evil:

    I dunno about the levergun - I have a 92 in .357, so no need there... but I would certainly make room for a long gun in Tok. I miss my Spanish Destroyer - and this would be a perfect replacement in bolt action.

    Count me in, I want one!:evil:

    I think I found the perfect combo! I went to my local gander mountain to grab some 12ga slugs and found a rossi .308 single shot for $149. Toss in a mca .30 mauser to .308 adapter for $22 and you have a sub $175 7.62x25 carbine! I dont have a caliper...can someone measure the diameter of romanian and bulgarian tok ammo?

    and is it the same exact bore? or will you get crappy accuracy like when firing 8mmjs through a regular 8mm?

    I do not believe that .001" will make that much of a difference...but I will defer to someone more knowledgeable on this subject!
