I recently picked up a russian tokarev mismatch and want to find out if it was refurbed/refinished.
Slide and barrel are both 1945 Izhevsk. Wartime expedient wood grips, tons of stamps all over the gun.
The serials are still sharp and dont seem to have been polished. In fact you can still see where metal has been raised around the numbers. But i wouldn’t expect all the other stamps on a wartime gun where they wanted them out the door ASAP.
any experts please chime in View attachment 320036 View attachment 320037 View attachment 320038 View attachment 320039 View attachment 320040 View attachment 320041
