    Default M57 vs. TTC

    Did the M57 have anything other than magazine capacity modified? If this is so, the prices I have seen on them seem to be out of the question then, compared to the Romanian models.

    Barrel is removed in a different procedure as well as the firing pin!
    these have only been imported at best 8 months and only a total of 4000. also there is an extreme shortage of the M-57 mags.
    Seems very likely that no more M-57 may ever be imported again, according to some dealers i have talked to.
    So they are actually fairly rare!
    I got 1 and it is my favorite out of 5 different Toks!

    They also have a mag safety.....I am likely selling mine, as I intend to pick up more 9mm, mags, and maybe two tickets to see Sarah Palin in Salina ks in feb 2010......I like it, but my rommy works for me.

    Anther thing about the M57 is that many of them don't work!!!
    I had three that don't work, properly that is.
    They have safety, trigger, delay fire or full auto problems. Yes mine was full auto.
    With the amount of bad ones out there, they should start selling part and mags from the bad ones.
    I emailed SOG several time about the 2 I bought that were bad and they wont reply.
    I would love to have one that works.

    Sad to say but in general it seems SOG was selling a lot of them with severe problems!
    The dealer i bought mine from goes to SOG and checks out the best and tests and buys 6 out of 100 on the average!

    I waited 35 years to acquire a Yugo M57. I have the "K" and "M" serial prefix so that makes them among the last made. I find them excellent. I have them all now except the North Korean. Any help? Gary

    My wife just got an M57 and a big ol' can of Romanian ammunition for it.
    Bummer about the magazines...Hopefully we can locate a few more. Also hope we don't have any problems with it! The pistol has an "H" prefix. Does that correspond to a particular year of production?

    The Zastava quality of manufacture and location of the retrofit safety seem really nice.

    Mine is a G. Will probably fire it tomorrow for the first time, but it's in excellent condition. Soaked it in mineral spirits for a week to get rid of the cosmo.

    Couldn't resist, I took it and an RIA .45 to the range. A box of Fiocchi thru the .45 and a box of Prvi Partizan thru the M57. Several feeding problems w/ the RIA, but the M57 was faultless. I was surprised by its lack of recoil. I was much more accurate w/ the RIA. Will have to get used to the M57.

    Nice to see an owner waited longer than me, I waited 20 years without knowing that a very close friend is an M57 owner...

    After 20 years when I asked him let me know for an M57, he told that he has something in his safe but he has to check !!!

    After 20 minutes, an M57 was mine...

    Have owned Russian,Polish,Chinnnese and Romanian Tokarovs,the Yugoslavian M-57 is the best in my opinion. The other's added on safeties are clumbsy at best. Bought my M-57 at a gunshow for $225,a real steal for the fit,finnish,and accuracy of this pistol. Maybe only 2 magazines and no more on the horizen,but with a little care they will last a lifetime. If you have a chance to get one of these Yugos ,grab it,you will be glad you did!

    I had to disable the side safety on My M-57 and now it works fine.I just got in a Romanian TTC-any one know what the Romanians call it? anyhow it is reblued over old pitting,bore is very good and it works fine.I was hacked off at the M-57 at first but now I like it.I have a Chinese And Russian Tokarev,both not imports with no add ons and they all work fine too.
