The most popular pistol that was chambered in the 7.62X25mm
Takarev was the Tokarev TT-33 pistol. This pistol was the Soviet Union’s
standard service pistol, starting in 1930 until mid-1960s. Since the round was
also popular in the Czech Republic, the Czech CZ vz. 52 pistol is another
popular service pistol in this cartridge.
What makes it a known round today is the fact that, after
the Cold War ended, many weapons, especially pistols, were exported to other
countries. The round became popular in Vietnam, with the Vietnamese K-50m, in
Yugoslavia with the Yugoslav M49 and M56. Another reason this round is so
popular is the aftermarket conversion sleeve that allows the 7.62X25MM Takarev
to be fired using the Mosin-Nagant family of rifles.
Each box contains 100 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
