    Having just purchased my first Tokarev (actually a Zastava M57), and being a long-time Pistolet Makarova owner, I've come up with two trick questions for a firearms trivia quiz: how do you install the firing pin spring in a Makarov, and how many grip screws do you need for a Tokarev? :D

    And it's Pablo for the win! :D

    Of course, a lot of people probably wouldn't know what a Makarov or a Tokarev were, anyway.

    Fine collector items! I love these things. Glad I just scored some surplus 7.62x25, only 280 rounds, but still.

    How would anyone not know what a Makarov is? It is one of the most common pawn shop guns out there. Of course if you looked at a Mak you probably did a google and got some reference to the Tokarev so I really don't know how someone on a gun site would not know what they are. Although I have never had any interest in the Tokarev, have never handled one nor do I know how many grip screws there are I have at least heard of it.

    You found some 7.62x25? You really should be willing to share! ;)

    I was referring, of course, to the great unwashed masses. ;)

    (But I do think that they would be good questions for a trivia contest.)
