I recently completed assembling the accessories for these two (2) pictured Russian Tokarev TT33 rigs. One is dated 1938 and the other is dated 1947. Both are all matching. The 1947 is in almost like new condition and unmessed wtih--read that as not having the import required thumb safety that many are found with. The 1938 is in very good condtition especially considering when it was made.

lloyd, Really nice rigs and I have to second Deans comments about the lanyards. Do you know how the lanyard was worn? Through a belt or what? Jerry Burney

Jerry,
The Russian lanyards were worn attached to the pistol and the loop end on the belt. They were very similar to the way the French wore theirs. Most other lanyards were worn up over the shoulder (British) or over the head and shoulder (Japanese). As times and rules relaxed in combat areas most lanyards, other than the belt type, were just looped over the head and around the neck.

Just for reference, here is a photo of the French lanyards. They are very similar to the Russian type. The correct Russian WW2 leather lanyards (like the one Lloyd has) and the French ones can be tough to find. The WW2 Russian ones have the dull metal hardware, post war fittings shine.

Handguns are a French Model 1892 Ordnance Revolver and a correct Pre- War contract MAB D. Both used in WW2

Pancho,
I have collected lanyards for a while to go with my handguns. They pop up in strange places. Ebay sometimes has some. WWW.Ostfront.com has the WW2 Russian ones. You can find them at Gunshows. Its one of those items you have to grab when see them. They can be expensive.
I will throw in some photos.

Here is a rare Italian Glisenti lanyard. It is similar to the British type but a different construction.

Here are some Commonwealth types. These are hard to nail down to a country because of the lending of equipment. Top to bottom-British WW2, British from 1950's repack, New Zealand stock, Canada stock, Australian stock.
