Great article! I learned a lot about the Tokarev that I didnt know. All things being equal, I'd definitely pick the 1911, but the Tok gun is really interesting.Hello all, here is today's article posted on TheArmoryLife.com. It is titled Enemies: Tokarev vs. M1911 and can be found at https://www.thearmorylife.com/enemies-tokarev-vs-m1911/.
Yeah, that is one of the really interesting features of the gun. The writer really called it out when he said the Russians "improved" on the original design. They flat out stole the design from Browning, but they did add some interesting twists to it.I had never even seen a Tokarev before this article, so I definitely learned a lot from this article. I did not know there were pistols with the feed lips for the mag built into the frame!
