    So what do Chinese Toks go for nowadays? A local shop wants $225 for a decent looking one in 9mm.

    The Chinese 9mm toks are very good shooters, but are only good for about 2000 rounds before the part of the slide that conntacts and cocks the hammer begins to spread.

    They do not insert a hardened steel contact to cock the hammer and it will begin to spread soon after 1000 rounds and by 2000 rounds will have spread enough to be rubbing and binding on the frame rails.

    The importer says the tok was meant to go about 2000 rounds and then be thrown away!

    anapex, that's about the price it would be around here. You see ratty looking ones at shows for $189-200.

    It's hard to believe, given how cheap and plentiful they were in the early '90s.
