Type 67 silenced pistol and its ammo


#1

What calibre does it shoot?

#2

Vlad, it is the 7.62x25 TT case loaded with a longer (and subsequently heavier) projectile. So it is not interchangeable with TT cartridges.


#3

Is it what Wikipedia describes as “The Chinese 7.62mm Type P is a special subsonic loading of the cartridge, designed specifically for use in suppressed firearms.”? Also, why double T (TT) in Tokarev, one for Tokarev, another for the year 1930?


#4

The TT is for Tula Tokarev, after the developing factory and the designer.


#5

It should be very similar to the 7.63 mm Mini Whisper developed by JD Jones: a 7.63 mm Mauser case loaded with a heavy rifle bullet


#6

Is this the round? Headstamp “11 88”. I got it last year in PA, just want to be sure it is the right thing.

That’s it. If I can find a pic of my cutaway, I’ll post it here.
Found this one handy, but it’s not mine. Mine has a small charge of a white-ish gunpowder.


#8

Jon, thanks for sharing the cutaway!


#9

from what i know, the Type 67 pistol uses 7.62x17 Type 64 ammunition, which is based on 7.65x17 SR Browning (.32 ACP), but w/o any rim

the subsonic 7.62x25 Type 64 (which is shown here), IIRC, is intended especially for Type 64 silenced submachine gun

Max, you are absolutely correct. As a “Tokarev Lover” I was simply looking at the cartridge and ignored the pistol. I was thinking something was wrong, but it didn’t hit me. The Chinese advert sheet is wrong.
Thanks.

So, let me summarize to make sure I get it right. The round in my photos is called 7.62x25 Type 64 and is used in Chinese Type 64 silenced submachine gun.


#12

yes. also in Type 85 silenced submachine gun, but NOT in pistols.
