Soviet Tokarev question


#1

I picked up a box of 100 of these labeled “Nambu” in Syracuse. I discovered that they are Tokarevs after measuring them. Do these stars and triangles have a meaning?

There is some debate on the meaning of the symbols, but if there is any, nobody knows what it is.
I hope you didn’t pay a Nambu price for them.


#3

Vlad, as discussed here somewhen before the Russian ammunition industry is designating these as “technological signs”. Means they identify some production process or the like. So far no explanation has been found - if there is one that applied to all manufacturers.

Jon, $24 for 100 unfired.

Lots better than Nambu prices!


#6

You guys are laughing about Nambu cartridge prices. The first cartridges I bought were a penny per WW-2 surplus. Out of 100 rounds had 85 misfires! Have been stuffing my own since the 70’s.
My first shot cost over $100 by the time I purchased a case forming die, Hensley-Gibbs mold and loading die set. What is the going price for collectors now?

Actually a pretty common round, but they usually bring about $3.
