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 Tokarev, just never had Americans to customize it, to turn it into something more refined.
Nailed it! :thumb:
The first time I shot a tok, it was @ 25yds. It was supremely accurate. 5 shots were about 3-4 inches with the pathetic sights and 8lb trigger.
I think the main draw of the tok - the cheap, plentiful ammo - is gone. So...
