From behind the Iron Curtain to your hands!

Want to own a piece of history? The Tokarev was one of the greatest weapons of the 20th century. A reliable handgun designed originally in Soviet Russia in the early 1930s by Fedor Tokarev, it was the premier service pistol for the Soviets in World War II. But the Soviets were about to turn on their former American allies in a conflict that came to be known as “the Cold War.” The Tokarev pistol formed Absolute Zero for many Soviet-bloc soldiers.

Romania had fallen under the sway of the USSR as part of the Warsaw Pact. Because of this, they were given information on Soviet technology which allowed them to produce their very own TT-33 pistols. These pistols were created under the same specifications that the Russians used, and so the pistol is very uniform in terms of design and performance. The TT-33 is very similar to the FN Model 1903 which was designed by John Browning. Now, Colorado Gun Sales has a selection of these authentic vintage TT-33 Cugir Romanian Select Production Tokarev pistols.

The TT-33 is a blowback pistol utilizing a short-recoil tilting barrel system, like an M.1911 pistol! The TT-33 is a lot more robust, however, as it has a much simpler hammer/sear assembly and does not utilize an “in-grip” safety like a 1911. These are single-action-only pistols and utilize 7.62×25 Tokarev a revolutionary round known for its high-velocity capabilities.
