The new book, The Complete Book of Tokarev Pistols by Cameron S. White; is out and can be ordered. Gun Collector just got a shipment from the printer>
I just ordered mine. New and so hot just off the press..no preorder. Shipping is 4.50 so the book came to $44.49 total. Got A message that they are sending out all the preorders and new orders and it will take 10 days to arrive. They just got the books on Tue. They must have sold a good number already.

Well, after getting a 10 day shipping notice it arrived over the weekend in 4 days. Here is a contents page. Like most of Mowbray's high quality paperbacks, it is well bound leafs- sewn and a glued on thick cover, high quality thick paper with clear photos mostly black & white, but also many color. Well worth the price. I will have to do a review. None of their paperbacks have split, some are from the mid 1980s. I'd like a hard cover, but no such critter. Now off to a day of reading :dance: :dance:

Thanks for the reminder. I saw this last year on fb, and even ordered their catalog.
I could drop a thousand bucks on their books and only make a small dent in their offerings,

I've been meaning to get a copy.
Maybe this will get me off my ass. :)

On a side note, I had read that srf had been sold at auction, and shuttered.
I was so bummed out I couldn't bring myself to stop by and confirm it.

I will try and drop in more regularly.

Only one word can explain this book:
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

I find myself re-reading each chapter.

Dr. White shows examples of each year of Russian Toks, both the TT30 and TT 33 with nice sized photos and then oval magnified highlights of the specific markings. He has collector comments that are very useful. I have no idea where he found so many examples and all the photos are the same size and quality so pictures are a consistent, outstanding quality. He must have traveled to photo each example???? He also references the owner and serial number. Unfortunately he does not show all the Yugo series, but shows crests of A, B, C, D, G, J, Double prefix & NO prefix pistols. He should have contacted us for the many others. I believe myself and Greg still have examples of our crests and pistols. Still a fantastic chapter. I still do not have a double prefix example.
I :shhh: am going to order a second copy to keep as mint.
There is so much incredible information. I am using my copy for notes, comments, and highlighting- a working copy and will buy another for reading to keep mint. Order two copies if you are into toks. Save postage. A great resource :doh:
