Fedor Tokarev developed the TT-30 Pistol for the Soviet Military to replace the old Nagant M1895 revolvers the Soviets were using held over from the time of the czar. The TT-33 (Tokarev-Tula) adopted in 1933, an improved design over the TT-30, was widely used by Soviet troops during World War II and was one of the most reliable handguns of all time.

A very close, less polished facsimile of John Browning's 1903 automatic pistol in design and function with a much simpler hammer/sear assembly. It uses the 7.62 x 25 mm Tokarev cartridge based on the similar .30 Mauser. During World War II, its ease of loading and semi-automatic capabilities led it to be a sidearm that was preferred over the Nagant M1895 revolver. Also, because it could withstand tremendous abuse, large numbers of this firearm were produced.

Production of the TT-33 in the USSR stopped in 1954. Also made by China as the Type 51, Type 54, M20, and TU-90, Hungary as the 48 M and an export version for Egypt as the Tokagypt 58, North Korean as the Type 68. At one time or another most communist or Soviet block countries made a variation of the TT-33 pistol. It was eventually replaced by the Makarov.
