FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Norinco Type 54 is a Chinese made copy of the Soviet Tokarev TT-33 pistol, first introduced in 1954 and still manufactured today.
This type of pistol is commonly available in 7.62×25mm caliber, although some variants have been made in 9×19mm Parabellum.
The Type 54 is a short-recoil operated, locked-breech pistol with a Colt M1911 / Browning-type action.
It is of all-steel construction and the quality of the steel is quite good, but external fit and finish is a little bit rough.
The trigger is single-action, with an exposed hammer, and while original TT-33 and Type 54 pistols had no manual safety, many modern variants do include one, usually on the frame.
This particular 54-T variant unusually has a manual safety lever located on the slide.
Even though the Type 54 is currently being replaced in the Chinese Army by modern pistols, the weapon is still in service in some of the armed forces (such as the People’s Armed Police and some People’s Liberation Army troops) today, and commercial variants are still being manufactured and exported all over the world.
This gun is in good used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
It has a fair amount of holster wear to the finish all over, but otherwise its condition is fine.
It comes in its original box with the original manual.
Includes 1 x extra 8 round magazine.
Extra magazines for this firearm available from Special Armory
This firearm is suitable for home self-defense, but is possibly a little too large for every-day, concealed carry (since it is a duty-sized pistol), unless for a large-framed person.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports:*
- IDPA – ESP division
- IPSC – Stock Gun
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun and Pin gun
- STEEL CHALLENGE
* The relatively low ammunition capacity of this handgun would make it fairly un-competitive and possibly quite frustrating to use in most time-based sport shooting disciplines.
