When you said Yugo for some reason I was thinking it was the Hi-cap Tok. I went to SOG web site and answered my own stupid question. Oh well! Thanks, I appreciate it. Have a great day.

UPDATE: Yugoslavian Tokarev M57 is now C&R eligible probably on the basis that Yugoslavia is no longer a county and firearms during the period are now "curios" by definition (similar to Czechoslovakia and East Germany). As a result I added this to the Tokarev collection. It came with an old beat up holster, a cleaning rod and a spare magazine (that only holds 8 rounds). The downside of course is that finding extra M57 magazines is nearly impossible.

Image

This Yugo M57 looks to be in very good to excellent condition. It came drenched in cosmoline as did the spare magazine. One magazine holds nine rounds and the other eight rounds.

I took an hour to strip, go through and clean the cosmoline out of the gun and magazines. I used hot water to loosen the gunk and then wiped it down, followed by spraying with Break Free CLP and brushing out the channels and crevices with a toothbrush. I then wiped down the prts, reassembled and went to the gun club. The M57 is very comfortable with the longer grip than other Tokarevs. After cleaning the trigger is perfect so I have no need for any trigger work. The Tokarev M57 shoots very well as expected with similar results compared to the other Tokarevs in the collection.

I saw somewhere that CZ-52 magazines will work with modification. You need to cut a notch for the mag catch and you are set.

The CZ magazines can be found but they're normally pretty darn expensive. You can get the aftermarket type, but they're normally said to be of poor construction. May be worth a shot though. I think they run around $18 or so...

$19.97 - http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=119843

$12.97 - http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/MAG294-36.html

I suppose it'd be worth a shot.

Also, Dennis makes the wrap around grips for them, but they aren't cheap--$80.

Received my Yugo M57 from SOG late last week. Been busy and haven't had an opportunity to de-cosmo it but just wiping off the exterior with a cloth it appears to be in near mint condition. I paid extra for hand select, fwiw. Other than the obvious differences from my Romanian such as the longer grip and different (and better) safety there are other subtle differences. Fine looking combloc pistol, a steal for $189.

Ah yes the Soviet 1911!!
Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.
