    Best out of the Tokarev variants?

    I was looking at different versions of the Tokarev: Romanian, Yugoslavic, and the Polish clones. I understand the Yugo version holds one more round in the mag and has a longer grip. Anyone have any ideas on which one is best? I did have my mind set on the Romanian version, because its lower priced and I can get an extra mag, kydex holster, and ammo, along with the pistol for a bit over $300. Anybody have any ideas on which one is the better choice? Thanks.

    If I remember correctly the Yugo 57 has a fragile cast firing pin.
    For a while there was a thriving business of selling machined after-market firing pins to fit them.

    My Yugo M57 works great. BTW jeeper knows that...
    most were made with no safety lever,,, then one was added for import laws,, there are variations...
    the 7.62x25 is a fire breather/blast to shoot!

    I've a Yugo 57 with a thumb safety. I love it. I've got maybe 200 rounds through it since I got it through my C&R 03 FFL.

    I've heard of fragile firing pins in old CZ-52's, but will have to check if I should get a spare for my Tokarev.

    That would be the CZ-52 that has the fragile cast iron pin.

    The Yugo 57 is available now in both 9x19 and 7.62x25 AND as new production in both from Century Arms.
