Tokarev M1927 submachine gun - 7.62x38N

Tokarev Model 1927 (Pistolet-pulemyot Tokareva obraztsa 1927 goda) is a Soviet experimental submachine gun designed by Fyodor Tokarev (the "father" of TT-33). The SMG was chambered for 7.62mm Nagant cartridge that was the only domestic-manufactured pistol/revolver cartridge in the USSR at that time. Unlike the original revolver version, the cartridge used for the SMG had a crimped nose. The SMG was a typical blowback-operated weapon. Two triggers were used for selective fire.

Extensive field trials were held until 1933, and at last the SMG was considered a failure. About 500 pieces were produced.
