    BTW; It wasn't until the yugo m57 tokarev was offered when the 7,62x25 ammo started drying up. I guess all of us are thinking the sameway cheap gun, cheap ammo, cheap plinking right?

    My point is i hope someone offers a change over for the tokarev to 22lr??? Or even a change over for the CZ82 in 9mm mak to 22lr too. Bill

    You're dreamin', brother, but I'm having the same dream! A 22 kit for my M57 would pretty much make my day(hell, might make my year!)

    Switching your M57 Barrel for a 9MM will at least give you some relief,,the barrels are,nt that expensive and the switch over is EZ,, polish the Feed ramp and use FMJ I use the 7.62 mags ,,get a jam once in a while because the 9M round is shorter,,when I have a couple spare bucs to spend maybe I seek out some 9mm mags

    good find, where'd you get it at? I picked some up off a local forum a few months back and am glad I did; I paid just under $8.50/100. I should be stocked up for at least the next few years.

    I hope the price on the 5.45x39 ammo doesn't go the same way as the 7.62x25 has when the surplus supply dries up.:bleh:

    Reality check... they are now charging $11.87 and I remember buying this for under $6 just a year ago. Which proves the point I always make to my friends: "Buy more ammo and guns now"
