TT-33 Tokarev Pistol Field Strip




What do you think about this video?

docwilkey: Years ago I had a chance to see an old soviet manual on the TT-33 and yes they used the 2nd method to field strip. They said to use a round of ammo to depress the spring and us the floor plat of the mag to pull the lock from the side. They didn't believe in needing tools for field stripping.

xhuljan muco: please answer this question. how coast a gun like that in your country ??????

Kravin Morhed: Did you use two different models? If so, could I know which came first?

314299 Shooting Channel: Have you seen one of the Zastiva Tokarevs in person? If so what was your impression of the quality?

cazybeast2: Awesome, thanks for the very detailed video.. just got my TT-33 in :)

314299 Shooting Channel: Which is handy if you ever need to order a spare part!

314299 Shooting Channel: You are welcome.

Garandman66: well i couldn't bring my AK's. but. then i cant get cheap ammo to shoot them here.. Tokarev magazine s arrnt a problem. its the zastava M70a that are hard to find.

AlmostTheBeast555: Great vid.The second method is the one recomended in the 1957 Gun Digest.Though when I tried it I nearly got an eye full of recoil spring.I think I prefer the first method l.o.l

314299 Shooting Channel: @hallis1 The lack of a decent safety catch is probably the biggest issue with original pattern TT-33's compared to most other pistols.

314299 Shooting Channel: @twogun1969 Mines worked 100% so far, and it's accurate to boot.

AllStringsAttached: But it is not WWII era, as you can tell by the closely spaced slide grip.

314299 Shooting Channel: Thanks for watching and commenting.

xhuljan muco: great video the best of that kind

Ron Drye: Very good video !!! Thanks. I have a TT-30 (I think) Top of slide is M-20 that followed me home some 30 years ago. I buy most of my ammo on line and run across some great deals. I ran across a Croatian Toc (great price) and bought a couple of them. The big difference in them is the # of rounds in the magazine. The new one holds 9, whereas my original holds 7. Have you any ideas where to get more mags???? And any comments on the new gun.

Southpaws88: great vid. i was wondering if you could make a vid on how to clean and oil the tokarev after shooting corrosive surplus ammo

314299 Shooting Channel: I'm long winded, hence the long video! The pistol is an original Soviet TT-33 from the 1950's.

314299 Shooting Channel: You are welcome.

314299 Shooting Channel: Sorry, but my ammo suppliers would do you no good as I'm in Canada. My TT-33 is an original Russian one, there is no safety as we are not required to add one for importation like you are in the USA.

xhuljan muco: thanks

314299 Shooting Channel: @monk250 Thanks.

Gola308: Excellent video!

314299 Shooting Channel: You are welcome. Enjoy your TT33!

TheUnclefester13: Just bought the norinco 213 clone in 9x19mm. Thanks for the vid. Got mine for two hundred. Suprized the heck outta me how well it shot. Bought it cause I wanted a cheap reliable carry gun so that if i ever use it that i'm not out $600 when the police confiscate for evidence. Think I made a good choice. Thanx again. now it's time to go clean it for real.

TheMathersLover: a really good video to learn about the assembly and dis assembly of the TT-33 thanks for sharing this.

Garandman66: I've only seen/read reports of the new ones. most reports were good. in 1989, i was with a buddy when he bought a TT 9, the cilvilan version of the Yugoslavian m70a.. got to shoot it and clean it. great pistol. they were only imported from 1989-90. then the balkans came apart..

314299 Shooting Channel: Thank you.

Wayne Snider: Great video....thanks for sharing.

314299 Shooting Channel: I never thought of that, but I suppose it is a bit of an added bonus to some folks. Thanks for commenting.

314299 Shooting Channel: The barrel link cams the barrel into (and out) of being locked into the locking cuts in the slide.

hallis1: I use the first method when taking down my Norinco 213. I've got the 9x19mm model. It's not the easiest in the world to disassemble compared to things like the Glock, Springfield XD, or even my makarov but it's easy enough once you've done it once or twice. The real drawback is that locking clip for the slide release. I think I still prefer my Makarov though just because it's SA/DA.

lorddinaire: Thank you very much. Seems to be impossible..

314299 Shooting Channel: You are welcome, glad that the video was useful to you. Enjoy the new Tokarev!

BadWolf: Thanks for the help. I was stuck on getting the grips off.

314299 Shooting Channel: That sounds like a good buy to me. As with all surplus stuff there is a limited amount of it out there and the price usually climbs after the importers/distributors run out of them.

MrHondaguy1: Very helpful video, thanks. Picked up a Romanian TTC, just waiting for it to be shipped in.

314299 Shooting Channel: No, I used the same Soviet/Russian pistol to show both methods of field stripping.

314299 Shooting Channel: @1337Leva Did the troops favor the Tokarev or the Makarov?

Lev Akilov: @314299 Well we never shot the tt33, we were trained with the makarov and after the extensive training you could get some descent groupings with the makarov but I heard other soldiers say that the tt33 was a great gun.

van van: ZERO dislike! You dont wanna man with the gun get angry, lol

314299 Shooting Channel: The barrel is original to the gun, and the whole gun appeared to be unissued when I got it.

314299 Shooting Channel: You are welcome! Thanks for watching.

314299 Shooting Channel: Glad you liked it, thanks for commenting.

314299 Shooting Channel: Sorry, I'm not personally familiar with the Yugoslavian/Croatian M57, perhaps someone else reading the comments will have a tip as to where to find extra mags.

Lev Akilov: @314299 No they still had em but the makarov ones are easier and cheaper to manufacture while sacrificing only slightly in accuracy which is not that important in battle for a side arm anyway.

TaZ101SAGA: Ah sweet, thanks, I'm from the UK so clearly I don't have much experience with the inner workings of handguns.

314299 Shooting Channel: Thanks.

314299 Shooting Channel: Yes, you can buy noncorrosive ammo in 7.62x25. As for the noise/muzzle blast and flash the pistol gets that reputation from being shot with hot loaded surplus ammo. With the ammo I have (Czech) I find it pleasant to shoot.

Tinstar2: Great video and helped me so much! I got the Polish version of the pistol and then I got one of the new ones being made in Serbia and it is in 9mm. I got a couple of surplus mags for the Polish version, loaded with cosmoline so I'm really glad that you showed how to dissasemble those as well. Nothing better than being able to see a video like this to go along with written instructions. Makes life much easier! Thank you very much!

314299 Shooting Channel: Thanks.
