So turns out that Century just slapped TTC on both Romanian and Polish Toks (and, it seems, mixed some parts). Have added proper WZ 33 links for the Polish pistols. Also added another link for the TTC and info about Vietnam's K14-VN K54 (Type 54) upgrade. Very, very little info about those, sorry.

T 33 Two nice disassembly & assembly videos, done slow and really shows what is going on. MosinVirus on U tube :arrow: In this video I completely disassemble or detail strip Tokarev TT-33 pistol. The only things I don't remove in this video are the Rear Sight and the Barrel Link.
A photo of a firing pin is shown below, care should be taken when removing the split pin.

Here is The Yugo M57 that's got a tricky firing pin that'll fly across the room if you do not use a rag or bag to stop it as you remove the retainer (keeper). Lose the small parts and it will cost you. Those pins are $$. USE EXTREME CARE SO YOU DO NOT LOSE THE FIRING PIN PARTS "Danger, Danger, Will Robinson" M57 Quote of the day...
I would love to find a firing pin, springs, retainer and firing pin stop for a Yugo M57. Please reply with whatever you may have or if you know where I may be able to find these parts. Fleabay does not have any. I was able to find the pin online but not the other parts. Please help me turn this paper weight back into the pistol I know it could be.
The M57 firing pin parts that generally fly away are the short retainer spring and the Extension, some lose the retainer. In any event, it is approximately a $50-60 adventure to find a pin assembly replacement. Few offer just the individual pieces for sale. The firing pin spring generally holds/stays onto the firing pin and is large so it's easily found. But the other two pieces are tiny, and can never be found. It is best to use a large heavy plastic bag just in case the little sucker gets away on you. :oops: Photos restored 6 June 2020

For a contrast watch this video, The T33 firing pin is very different from the Yugo M57 .

Now if you are a picture & written instruction kind of person :arrow: :lol: This is good on the M57, it shows the entire take down and good attention to that firing pin. This web page has tons of information on the M57 Serbia Zastava M57A

As a contrast here is a view of a normal T33 Tokarev firing pin- no parts to lose. Only the split pin can get battered and replacements are easy to obtained. Some use a cut nail, solid pin from Ace, or a roll pin as replacements.

Upgraded, carbon steel, hardened replacement pins can run from $10-25 for a single pin :doh:
