Re: Anyone here have a Russin SVT40?

As is often the case here, Rapidrob provided an excellent summary. :) I have no pics of my SVT-40s, sorry. I only rarely spend time photographing my firearms. I still have 6 SVT-40s; 1 Izhevsk '41, 4 Tula '42 and one that I rebuilt around a Tula '41 barreled receiver. That last was interesting becau...

Re: T-33 and M-57

garra, I received my grip (same style as the one in your pic) and installed it today (on my M57 with the best trigger)..

Nice and a snug, well-designed/-crafted fit ... feels very good in my hand! :)

Thanks again for the Heads-Up!

Re: T-33 and M-57

Sorry. Well, to hi-jack even further, when reloading for both 1895s & TT33s what bullet diameter would you use in jacketed? After determining the groove-diameter of the bore in question, I would use a jacketed bullet that matched that measurement or one that was slightly smaller. For example, with ...

Re: T-33 and M-57

Yes, I know and own both and was asking about the bore diameter not the action of each. Sure would appreciate if you'd answer my question, please? Steve Ahhhh, now I understand the true question in that awkward sentence. Sorry, Steve. Actually, they are nominally of the same bore diameter, the ol'R...

Don't mean to hi-jack your thread but, is the T33s the same as the Russian 1895 Nagant, .32 caliber instead of .30 as marked?
Steve
They are completely different critters. TT33 is a bottom-feeder and an M1895 is a revolver.

Re: 1944 M1895 Nagant Acquisition

A few years ago AmmoToGo,com had a sale that included 98gr Fiocchi 7.62x38r for about half price, only $10 per 50rd box. :shock: Thank goodness for the HeadsUp that someone posted in one of the forums that I frequent! :) I quickly bought a small pile and started forwarding the HeadsUp.

Re: 1944 M1895 Nagant Acquisition

As I recall, ~15 years ago when M1895s were available for $99 and 7.62x39 & 7.62x54r milsurp were to be had for, like, 4¢/round they were advertising cases of the 7.62x38r M1895 ammo for, like, 30¢/round. :shock:

Re: 1944 M1895 Nagant Acquisition

Nice pics & pistol, B32d ! I think that most of us ignored the M1895s when they were available for $99. When I saw them on SOG for ~$125 in Summer'13, I grabbed one. Looks like new. :) My normal instinct in such a situation is to buy multiples, but I knew that ONE of this type of pistol would be eno...

Re: T-33 and M-57

Very nice, M67 ! 16-17 years ago both TT-33 Variant (the Polish TT-33s were first to appear) and Czech CZ-52 pistols suddenly became available from dealers in the US. I can clearly recall the online photos of cases full of either pistol on SOG's homepage. The one that caught my eye was the CZ-52 .....

Re: Russian TT-33s

"tetejka" ... I have found myself repeating that word since I first read it in your post. I really like the sound of it.

Tetejka!

Thanks for the explanation/education, M67! :)
