RUSSIAN TT 33, SN 599, DATED 1939
The 1941 invasion of Russia by Germany resulted in the capture of over one million Russian troops in the first year. The TT30 and TT 33 pistols captured as a result of this invasion were used by the German Forces. The German Military designated for the captured TT33 was Pistole 615 (r ). The ( r) signifying Russland (U.S.S.R.)


Between 1936 and 1942 over 400,000 TT33s were manufactured by the Tula plant for the Russian Army.

Still,
That is an extremely neat pistol!!! I just looked at a Norinco model at a gun show (the only Tokarev type pistol I have seen in this area), and could only wonder what a true example would look like. I wasn't impressed with the Norinco too much, are the Russian examples better than their Chinese copies? Again, great looking pistol. Have a good one!!!
