tokarev 40

Interesting Sam, and i stand corrected, i thought the big tok was the russian version of our M1, can see by the magizine the troops got his L hand on that its much more like a BAR, and guessing with the balistics being close it was a hell of an early squad automatic weapon. Eastern front must have been a very bad tour of duty.

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

The Russkis built the Tok lightweight only 8.6 lbs. BBL was no good if you did a 50 round burst, metal was so thin. 2x20 rounds was max.

Trying to dig out old pictures of our BAR (mod 1918 i think but better check) as i post this to see if mr B's had fins or not. the weight savings is huge in comparison, interesting that both had same cap mags. gona have to get off and make a trip over to check more on the evolution of this piece.

Raffy dont bust a gun over trying a bullet not designed for it. If your gonna bust a gun make sure its a gun still in production not a classic WWII gun.

let raffy know

He should use the shells with the brass casings not the bi-metal. The brass hardly ever jam in that weapon but once the gun gets warm the bi-metal casings jam constantly.
