    SKSman sells new barrels in 7.62x25 but they do not come with the barrel pin and link.

    For some reason its called a T30 barrel. What is a T30?

    I was thinking of contacting a barrel maker to see if they could make some.
    Wounder if there is much interest in new TT33 barrels?

    I made one from a Parker Hale sniper trainer 308 bull barrel, so I could have a long barreled Tokarev and shoot long range groups.

    I took the link from another Tokarev barrel.

    Why would a firm want to make any while there are so many mil suplus parts out there?

    My notes from 9-24-2004
    Anyway, I shot this gun:
    Long barrel Tokarev with scope

    I have a 2x7x32 Leupold Vari-II rifle scope on it.
    I was using S&B 7.62x25mm factory ammo.
    The chamber is reamed with a 30 Mauser reamer, but the differences are
    minute, and have to do with a shoulder angle on a shoulder that is
    barely visible.
    I used no recoil spring.
    I fed single shot without a magazine.

    At 50 yards I shot two 5 shot groups; 2.1" and 2.5"
    At 100 yards I shot one 5 shot group: 4.2"

    Much better groups would be possible:
    without wind
    with a better rest
    with a shooter who is a better shot with a pistol
    with better ammo.
    I have uploaded pics, but I double it is going to work. I may have to go to photobucket.

    I cut the barrel out.
    Randy Ketchum TIG welded the lug for the link.
    I have since bought my own TIG welding set up, but lack his skill.
    My brother can TIG weld that well, but the hole drilled in the lug must be in just the right place, and I don't know how Randy fixtured it.

    Clark's barrel is interesting, my Russian pistol had a poor wartime broached barrel, and after looking around decided to make a new one, Used a new Shilen unfinished blank and bought the chambering reamer, surprised that PTG had it in stock, shipped that day. When I asked some vendors, I could only locate 9mm barrels, apparently some 7.62 barrels are avaiable now.

    Most blanks are 1.125 diameter, and with the right machine tooling you can machine around the barrel lug, you will only have to add about .065 to the lug by welding to finish it. Clark probably couldn't do that because of the length not fitting in an indexing fixture.

    I would prefer to include some pictures, but this computer doesn't permit it
