    Default TT30 find...

    I acquired this pistol over the weekend. It's a transitional Soviet TT30 pistol made at the Tula arsenal in 1934. All serial numbered parts match , except the magazine. The most obvious difference between this pistol and its successor , the TT33 , is the cutout section in the 30's back strap. Here are some pics.

    Excellent example with original finish-is it still live and if so, how is the barrel bore?

    Interestingly, this is a really close copy of the Browning M1903.
    Surprised that they weren't sued back then. The only real
    difference - besides the grip panels - is the exposed
    hammer spur.........

    There are a number of more fundamental differences including the removable lockwork and the feed lips machined into the body of the weapon instead of the top of the magazine where they can be damaged and misfeed rounds.

    The pistol is "live" and the bore is in excellent condition.
