"For those saying the Front bushing won't come off--The Tokarev pistol is a little different from the 1911, you take the barrel bushing off after removing the guide and recoil spring, then you pop the plug out. You need to remove the slide assembly to do this first. You CAN do this like a typical 1911 if you really, really try, but be warned: Most likely the spring and plug will shoot out the front of the gun the second you rotate the bushing out of the way.
Alright so first off, I'm sorry, I don't play airsoft anymore. All my GBB's and GBBR's are used for short action films I make, so they never see a chrono or even a single pellet in the mag. But, after digging out some sil oil and propane, I shot it.
Yep, definitely the gun I ordered.
it's a WETech Gbb, it gets about 260-300fps. It's practically the same as the rest of them, be that their Glocks, Berettas, Hi-Power, their legendary Desert Kimber, etc.
The difference is that this is a Tokarev TT-33. When you buy a WETech, you're just buying a WETech. What it looks like on the outside has about as much importance as a gun skin in a F2P multiplayer shooter, minus barrel length in some cases.
Some are more durable than others however, and over the past five years or so WE has generally gotten less fragile, perfect for the movies I want to make. This TT is one of the nicest WETech's I've had, up there with the absolutely beautiful RE-series Samurai Edges, the Black Lagoon Sword Cutlass, and the Knighthawk 1911.
This thing is almost 1:1 the same "Black Star" pistol you see in every 80's/early 90's John Woo film. You'll want to buy two and start leaping around like Chow Yun Fat in Hard Boiled, they're so fun to hold and handle. Like a more compact, somehow thinner Russian 1911. In airsoft, I think would make a really handy sidearm, its weight and size compete very nicely with WE's commander-sized 1911's or a WETech Baby Glock if you can get your hands on one from Taiwan or Hong Kong.
If you drop a pistol mag hard, make sure to shake it around. If it sounds like something is clinking around in there, you've busted the valve seal. It'll work but gas will continuously leak until empty. Eventually, all WETech mags end up like this: pistol, SMG, rifle, etc. The MP5 mags are quite durable though.
TT-33's Mag? Real nice. Solid. The 1911 mags are absolute messes. The little stop lip at the bottom always snap off, they are thin so the valve seals are more vulnerable and eventually leak. But this mag is noticeably heavier, has no bottom lip to snap off, and is a little thicker and longer. I have very good feelings about this one.
"this handgun is slim and easy to carry. the cost for the gun is also perfectly fine for the gun.
safety is easy to remove
mag can't reliably use full capacity
front bushing won't come off (could just be mine)
a bit slippery to the touch
all and all this is a great gun that i highly recommend
"First off the gun looks great. It feels more durable than the src counterpart and more reliable. the grips are friction fit but they are a pain to get off. they won't fall off during average movements. could be a con but i love it.
-good weight, not too heavy not too light
-thinner profile than say an m9
-safety is easy to remove for the more accurate version
-bushing won't come off, could just be mine though
-tip glued on
-mag can't hold the advertised amount, stick with 10/11
overall a great gun that will hold up for a while
