Description

Russian Tokarev gas operated semi-automatic infantry rifle - standard issue weapon during World War II for the Soviet Red Army. Designed by Samozariadnyia Vintovka Tokareva. Caliber is 7.62 x 54R, with a weight of 8.59 pounds. 10-round detachable box magazine ammunition feed system. Manufactured by Tula and Izbevsk Arsenals. Maximum effective range was 400 - 500 yards. Approximately 10 million were produced. Workmanship in the rifle was good, but it lacked ruggedness, primarily due to the Soviet attempt to make a rifle of light weight. In order to eliminate extra weight, the barrel and receiver were manufactured from very thin stock. The receiver walls were very easily bent, putting the weapon out of action. In 1942, in order to provide a light anti-aircraft weapon, modifications were made to allow the weapon to fire on full automatic, and a 15-round magazine was introduced in place of the old 10-round magazine. This had its drawbacks as well, as the maximum permissible continuous fire bursts was only 30 rounds, or two magazines. Fifty rounds fired in continuous bursts would generally ruin the rifle. Interesting to note - Red Army regulations forbid full automatic fire except on order of the commanding officer. The weapon was also used in the Korean War, Vietnam War, Cuban Revolution, Yugoslav Wars, and the First and Second Chechen Wars.
