Collector Bookstore Notes:
This collectors reference details Soviet Russian Tokarev TT Pistols & Cartridges made between 1929-1953. Includes markings, holsters and cartridge information.
F.V. Tokarev is unique in small arms history, through having had small arms of his design in three basic categories officially adopted as his nation's martial weapons: one light machine gun, two variant pistols and three models of self-loading rifles. This volume details Tokarev's successful side trip into the handgun field despite his specialty in rifle development, and the fact that none concerned, including Tokarev himself, was satisfied with the results of his Colt-Browning-based designs. The original "Tula-Tokarev Model 1930" ("TT-30") self-loading pistol was adopted three years before its initial production, and some five years prior to design finalization as the "TT-33." Its entire manufacturing life span totaled eleven years, five of which occurred in wartime. Included herein is a chapter covering the rare and heretofore unpublished small-caliber Tokarev - Seveyogin pistol variations and, for the first time in print, the complete official Soviet Russian key to the heretofore undecipherable small arms and ammunition "year-date-code" letters of the 1950s, two precedent-setting firsts.
