I bought a commercial Makarov, a Baikal IJ-70, and a Polish TT-33 yesterday.

The Tok came in this holster, but it is not a Tokarev holster and I don't recall ever seeing one like it. The pistol fits well but the magazine pouches are not wide enough for a Tokarev magazine. I tried a Makarov mag and it's obviously narrower than the pouch. I'm curious about what pistol it may have been made for.

Did an image search for that and you guys sure appear to be right. Thanks for the lead on the markings; I looked and they're so faint I didn't see them when I first looked.

It appears to have three crown stamps and a couple of other marks (an 'A' with a v instead of an - with a line ___ across the top and others I can't make out). I don't see a date, but there appears to be a ' T 5 ' made out of spaced blocks below the crowns.

Thanks for the quick help!

The Tokarev fits the Swedish holster well because the profile of the Tokarev is the same as the FN 1903 pistol, which was the original Swedish m/1907 pistol. The Moscow city police had a contract for the FN 1903 so they were familiar with the design. The Tokarev is a hybrid of the FN 1903 and 1911 Colt, both Browning patents. This Belgian FN 1903 is mine.
