    I know they are different prices, but how would you guys compare the Yugo M57 with the Romanian, Polish, and Norinco Tokarevs in 7.62x25?
    From what I've seen, I can't afford a Russian TT-33.

    I've got wood to have one and would appreciate your experienced advice.

    I don't plan on carrying it as CCW, I have that covered, but I'm curious about accuracy, fit and finish, and reliability.

    This is a great site.

    The Yugo M57 has a slightly longer grip and one more in the mag. The mags for that are harder to find than the others. It does have the thumb safety on it, similar to the 1911, but the others had the safety added, just for import purposes. I have a Romanian and love it. Accurate, reliable, easy to shoot. I have heard that you can change the barrel and link to convert the Tok to 9mm, but I'm not positive about that. I got mine for about 200 bucks. That is still the rate on a couple that I have seen. Get one now while they are still available. Fit and Finish? It is a com bloc gun. What do you expect? It does work! Just my opinion
