First off, I love the way this pistol feels in my large hands, it works well for me. The Sights are accurate I feel, but you may shoot high as you get used to shooting it. However when mine first came in it had some problems. The front sight was bent and not in the right spot, it will likely need to be adjusted. One thing I think everyone who buys this needs to check is to see if it will slam fire. When I received mine if you put a round in the chamber and put the slide down on a live round it would sometimes shoot it, even without a magazine in the gun (so there was no way i was pulling the trigger) The firing pin in the gun seemed to have some defect so i had to send it back to Century Arms and they repaired the slam fire issue and the front sight. Also, the magazines that come with the gun will likely be stiff and not feed the 8th and 9th rounds very well until they've been broken in a bit. If the gun would have come without these problems I would have left a 5 star review, but the problems mine came with were annoying at best and the slam fire issue was dangerous. It's all fixed now and I love my gun. I would recommend this gun to people, but i would highly encourage them to test the slam fire in a safe situation to make sure it doesn't have that problem.
I took my brand spanking new M57 Tokarev to the range for the first time yesterday. The pistol's fit and finish is excellent; it looks and shoots like a dream. The bullet is very quick, and will get your attention if you have never shot a pistol chambered in 7.62X25 before. I am very pleased with my purchase, and like everything I have ever bought from J & G, it is exactly as advertised and I received my order quickly.
