    Pictures of My New (Relative Term!) Romanian TTC

    Here is my new TTC. It has matching SNs, except for the magazine. Manufactured in 1953. No rust and the barrel looks really good. There was a lot of oil on it but not the thick cosmoline that I have gotten on other milsurplus guns. The magazine, on the other hand, while it didn't have a lot definitely had the thick preservative grease applied to it. I am hoping to be able to shoot it this in the next couple of weeks.

    I tried to push the envelope, but found that it was stationery.

    Have you heard about the new corduroy pillows? They're making head lines!

    Pretty.

    How easy are magazines to obtain?

    I ordered two after the order was approved for the pistol without any difficulty. There were about $20 each and came with much more cosmoline!

    Yeah, they didn't have a safety originally. Stupid BATFE requires a certain number of points to allow importation. Without the safety they don't have enough point count to come in.

    That's something that the new administration needs to address... I hope they do and we get back to the glory days of parts kits with barrels, etc.

    I still have my jigs and tools to build AK's. It'd be fun to do a few more... but not for $350 per kit sans barrel...

    Yeah, I don't like the safety either. I am considering removing it but then I would have a hole in the pistol that was not there before. I checked and the half-cock safety locks the pistol up tight as a drum, the trigger and slide won't move in half-cock, not sure why the ATF didn't consider it a safety. Hopefully I will get to shoot it tomorrow and I will post a range report.

    My range time for the next couple of weeks has been preempted. I will post a range report when I get a chance to go.

    Chuck,

    Check out this month's American Rifleman. They have a decent article on the Chinese version of the TT?

    Just got my copy yesterday so I will be watching for it. I generally read it cover to cover anyway!

    No. My weekend has been rearranged. I am taking a friend and his wife out next weekend, it is the first time she has shot a gun. If I don't get to go the week after I will probably not get to shoot it for almost a year as I am getting ready to deploy.

    You'll probably like the shooting part. I picked up a Yugo Tokarev a couple of years ago & love firing it. Pretty accurate little pistol & the 7.62 bottle-neck round packs a hard punch.

    I like the way the whole modular trigger group can be lifted out for inspection & cleaning.
