i PPT'd this pistol today.
original matching magazine
good bore. no corrosion or pitting
looks like a shooter!
bluing's gone though-paid $300
should be fun cuz ammo's still reasonable for these

did someone do custom serrations on the slide, or is that original?

well no paperwork.. it was left to someone i know by their grandfather who brought it back
as far as i know this baby is all original :)
i could easily stand corrected as this is my first mil-surp pistol
i have six MN's a Russian SKS, a C&R SxS 12ga and a couple of modern rifles
it's a welcome addition, as i really dig Soviet stuff
in 10 day jail until the 29th :(

Nice that the magazine matches. Hard to find. My "bringback" (no papers) is all matching except the mag. :(

Places that TT-33s are serial numbered: frame, slide, hammer group, barrel and mag. If it matches in all those places, you're likely stylin'!

Should you decide TT-33s aren't your style...lemme know, I need a 1941 ;)

That's original design of pre-war/wartime TT-33s. Post war, the serrations got really thin and close together.
