Very limited bullet choices due to length limitations.

Interesting. Wonder how that bullet design would play into soft armor penetration from the 22TCM

Just got back from the range with my new 22TCM, first impressions, weapon's fit and finish are very good, have not had any problem finding ammo or extra mags. Trigger pull is great, no takeup, very crisp, measured little over 3 lbs. Has adjustable sights , frontsight is blade type, black, hard to see, rear sight two white dots, works well. Fired 100 rounds, gun performed flawless, sounds like a cannon with fireball, hardly and kick,very easy to keep on target. Did not have a chrono available, gonna get one, when I do I will report back. Paid 599.00 for the weapon, comes with 9mm barrel and spring, one 18 rnd. mag., just called Armscor parts in Nevada and ordered two additional mags, 34.00 each,shipped out today. Over all I was pleased with the weapon.

How much is a box of ammo? Webb site says $25.00, can't find it around here for that.

Sounds like a lot of fun.

Since it comes with a 9mm conversion and it's an ARMSCOR, that's a great deal. You could shoot Single Stack division with it. :thumb:

Curious if anyone has tried the new TCM22 cartridge. I just Got a Commander length Rock Island in TCM22. The 5" comes with a 9mm conversion barrel. Not a big fan of hi-cap 1911's, but this is a fun pistol to shoot. Reminds me of a tamer .357Sig with it's muzzle flash. I would estimate velocity in the neighborhood of 1700fps. With a 40gr bullet, it hits harder than my 5.7 but not quite as accurate. May end up a fad, but I'm ok with that too. Hornady gas dies on the market for reloading.

Tactical search to the rescue! :laugh: (It was that or "search function n00b")
Merged

SOS, we have a few people who own and/or have shot the TCM, please check out the previous posts & video and let us know if you have more questions.

However, if you just got a cool gun, you have to post a pic or two :D Instructions linked in my sig line

Stop screwing around with the 1911 platform for the high velocity - small rounds. How about an advanced thumb safety, target sight, double stacked magazine Tokarev in 5.7x28?

What will be the country of origin of this 21st Century Tokarev?

Either your statement makes no sense, or I don't comprehend it.

You want a double stacked Tokarev pistol chambered in 5.7x28. Why...?

The 7.62x25 is bit fatter than the 5.7x28. So the Tokarev (the extra length of the Yugo M57 would be preferable) magazine width would not even have to altered to be a staggered column 5.7 magazine, it would need an altered top end / feed lips and follower.
A cocked and locked high capacity Tokarev, what is not to like?

Put on an arched backstrap, customized grip panels, pollish the trigger bow/sear interface, a set of new sights, fixed. Remember, without the 1911 as the starting point, the Tokarev would have never happened. The bare bones are there, with spit and pollish, the Tokarev can be turned from a relatively crude service pistol into a trim classic combat pistol (imagine Wilson Combat aftermarket parts). The Tokarev, just has never had Americans to customize it, to turn it into something more refined.
